Trilogy bout with Nate Diaz should happen at 155 lbs, McGregor insists

Now that Conor McGregor’s tenure inside the boxing ring has passed, it’s time to get back to the UFC and settle some unfinished business inside the octagon.

Perhaps high on the UFC Lightweight Champion’s list is a grudge match against Nate Diaz, whom he engaged in two thrilling welterweight bouts last year.

But if Diaz is indeed interested in a trilogy bout, McGregor insists that it has to be in the 155-lb. division, which the Irish superstar currently lords over.

“I’m the 155-pound champion, I faced him at 170, he beat me, then I rematched him at 170, I beat him,” he was quoted as saying in a BBC News report. “Now I’m the 155-pound world champion. If he wants that fight, he must come down”.

After fighting above his weight class for their first two matches, “The Notorious” believes it’s only natural that the third match take place under his stipulations.
