Since Dana White has been unable to resign a rematch between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor, the UFC President’s reporting that the promotion is exploring other bouts for the latter.

Since Diaz – McGregor II was pulled from UFC 200, the company has been unable to finalize a new date for the bout.  UFC brass recently met with Diaz, with the hopes of booking the bout in August, but no deal was reached.

White recently appeared on Colin Cowherd’s talk show, “The Herd”, and according to a follow up report from MMA Fighting.com, he relayed the following:

“It’s just madness,” White said. “It’s just been tough. It’s been a tough go-through, so we’re looking at another fight for Conor right now and we’ll see how this thing comes together. But Conor is just so obsessed with Diaz at 170, it’s been crazy.”

The UFC executive went on to add that Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar and Rafael dos Anjos are all possible opponents McGregor could face in the future. Aldo-Edgar II is booked for July 9th, and RDA will face Eddie Alvarez on July 7th.
