By FCF Staff
It’s not clear when and who Conor McGregor will fight next, but recently the star mentioned the possibility of fighting Nate Diaz again, while congratulating the latter on his recent win.
Diaz faced Anthony Pettis this past weekend at UFC 241, and worked his way to a decision win. It marked the first time the Stockton star had fought since August, 2016, when he lost his rematch to McGregor via decision.
Since UFC 241, McGregor posted the comments below via Instagram:

3 years to the day myself and this Mexican warrior went to war. Congrats on the win this weekend Nate, it was motivating to see it for my own comeback. I don’t blame you not mentioning me for the trilogy bout post fight, you know what I’m like when I get going. Vicious. I loved the round 3 style from round 1 that you implemented. It’s what I was hoping you would implement for this bout and was glad to see you do it. I’ll be prepared for it when we go again. If we go again. If not, respect always. A war for the ages. No bitch talk. Just real shit.
McGregor and Diaz fought for the first time in March, 2016, and the latter won the bout via submission.
