Fight fans have been fawning for a trilogy rematch between UFC superstars Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor for some time. The two mixed martial arts warriors threw down in two brutal octagon battles back in 2016, with Diaz and McGregor ultimately going 1-1 in their rivalry.
Since then, “Notorious” has gone on to earn the UFC lightweight title and made his professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Diaz has not competed inside the octagon since.
Speaking to The MacLife, SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh recently decided to offer his thoughts on a possible Diaz vs. McGregor trilogy fight.
“I did assume that Nate would be as busy or busier than Conor.” Kavanagh said. “Conor has had an MMA fight and a boxing fight and we haven’t seen Nate since. So, I started changing.”
Speaking on Diaz’s inactivity as of alter, Kavanagh added “So I don’t think it would be quite right for that to happen before the winner of Khabib and Tony.”
