Conor McGregor Comments on UFC 244: Diaz vs Masvidal
While McGregor has had two fights with Nate Diaz, including one where he lost, it seems that there is no love lost between the two as McGregor actually said that Nate Diaz has a better chance of winning the UFC 244 main event than Jorge Masvidal!
This is quite an interesting pick because McGregor had commented earlier that he wants to face the winner of McGregor vs Diaz after his UFC 246 fight. This means that McGregor is basically pitching for a Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz III fight happening sometime in 2020 before he finally fights Khabib Nurmagomedov once again.
You woke the Gorilla.
