Nate Diaz Sends A Message To Conor McGregor
Nate Diaz is expected to return to action in a rematch with Jorge Masvidal at the end of this year, but it's clear he's also got his mind on another potential rematch.
The Stockton Slugger hasn't been in action since losing to Masvidal in the first ever BMF title match at UFC 244 last November, but is expected to face Gamebred once again at UFC 256.
However on Tuesday night it was another former rival, Conor McGregor, that was in Diaz's thoughts, with the 35-year-old posting a video from their second fight with the words 'I forgot who won,' on his Instagram story.

Diaz inflicted a first UFC loss on McGregor in 2016, at UFC 196, submitting him in the second round in the Irishman's first fight at welterweight. A fight the American took on very short notice.
The pair rematched just months later at UFC 202 with the Notorious getting the win on a majority decision but many thought it was a controversial win, in what was a bloody slogfest.

Diaz's video on Tuesday night showed the part of the fight he had huge control over, towards the end of the third round.
On Tuesday night UFC president Dana White confirmed that there were talks for Diaz to fight Masvidal for a second time, which is likely to be on the card of the Kamaru Usman vs. Gilbert Burns welterweight title fight.
White said the BMF title would likely to be on the line, saying, "[Masvidal] wants to defend it against Diaz.
"They were the first two to fight for it. You know what I mean? They were the guys that fought for it. He wants to put it up versus Nate again."
Nate isn't the only Diaz ready to get back in the octagon, with older brother Nick likely to make his comeback in 2021, having been out of action since 2015.
