    I have a hard time believing that to be true. It's not that I think McGregor is above turning down a fight but I don't see the UFC trying to put together a rematch with Diaz for UFC 200. There are much better matchups to make for both fighters than that.

    I thought it was odd too, but the fact it was their highest grossing ppv ever leads me to believe they might try n cash in on a immediate rematch. You know the ufc loves that rematch shit..

    not a bad idea, if youre conor dont want to risk 2 losses in a row, even though he lost that fight he still has steam in terms of popularity.

    go back to 145 and buzzsaw the midgets like youve been doing and hope your path crosses with nate again.

    Dana said it wasn't true, but his word isn't exactly the most trustworthy.

    How dare you? DW is a pure blooded prince who has never shown an ounce of dishonorable traits in his life.

    When I saw the article I somewhat questioned it's validity, but Dana White saying it's not true means very little to me..

    The website itself is a Facebook misleading title website type of thing.

    It was alongside a rumour that Fox is buying out the UFC. Rumours don't mean shit unless confirmed.

    Once confirmed, a rumor ceases to be just that..

    Maybe my memory isn't serving me right, but wasn't MiddleEasy one of the banned sources we couldn't post from on News, because most of their articles were complete bullshit? The reason I ask is because the "source" of this rumor, is the ex-founder of that site.

    I am pretty sure it was the MiddleEasy guy who tweeted it... no?


    Doesnt he have ties to the Diaz brothers?

    Morning Report: Conor McGregor open to Nate Diaz rematch, 'I'd love to get that one back'
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/3/1...iaz-miesha-tate-holl-holm-dana-white-mma-news

    "I'm ready to go again," McGregor told TMZ. "I had a great time. It was a good fight, a hell of a fight. I look forward to coming back with a vengeance."

    McGregor's post-fight interviews indicated a featherweight title defense at UFC 200 would be next, but the Irishman doesn't sound opposed to another run-in with Diaz down the road.

    "I think I'd like to see that, yea?" McGregor said of a future rematch with Diaz. "I mean, it's one that interests me, most certainly. You know, when I look at the fight I was winning the fight. I won the first round and a half, I feel. I'd love to get that one back. We'll see how it goes. Money talks. Life is good."

    Matt Serra: Holm a warrior for taking a nap, McGregor is a 'dumb f*cker'

    Not being a cock, but look at Conor. All the shit you talked, take a nap, man. It's not like your arm was about to break. I understand you want your career and if it was a kneebar, you'll be out for six months, but dude, if worst comes to worst, you'll think you're in your bedroom. That's it. You'll wake up like, ‘WTF,' but everything will be alright.

    Silly rematch, Conor has a belt to defend and Nate has a belt to chase. We just move on.

    Conor is not the second coming, he's a very good fighter and entertaining. Edgar can beat him, but he can't beat Edgar.

    Just stay away from Dos Anos.
