Conor McGregor to Nate Diaz, I'll Be Ready for Trilogy Fight

Nate Diaz made a winning return to the Octagon after three years out

Nate Diaz made a winning return to the Octagon after three years out

Diaz went out, after a three-year layoff from competitive fighting, and dominated former UFC and WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis for the better part of three rounds and 15 minutes.

He also congratulated Diaz on his recent victory over Anthony Pettis - Diaz's first fight since his 2016 rematch with McGregor.

The reason I was off is cause everybody sucked and there was nobody to fight.

Diaz, of course, called out Jorge Masvidal after his win on Saturday.

"All respect to the man but there ain't no gangsters in his game anymore". If so, do you think Diaz or Masvidal will win?

Diaz's performance was widely praised and, after his fight, he teased a possible bout with Jorge Masvidal - who is looking for his next fight after defeating Ben Askren in record UFC time.

"So Miami peeps, don't get mad at me if the fight's not here", he said. There ain't nobody who does it right but me and him. And I'm ready. I'm ready to put it on the line. "We'll see. If he wanted to take that fight [Diaz] it'd be fun and I wouldn't be opposed to it". Instead, he challenged Jorge Masvidal to a fight.

He said: "We're just negotiating now".

But for the last three years, Conor has been involved in other ventures such as boxing Mayweather and living a lavish life with the money he earned, and Nate Diaz has not been competing in the UFC octagon. Two dogs, locked in a cage, going for the jugular. "I know Masvidal believes he should get the next [welterweight title] shot after the Kamaru Usman-Colby Covington fight". The same thing for my rival. "You can hit that dude with a (expletive) baseball bat to the kneecaps, he's going to keep coming". "And that's why I went in there with kill or be killed attitude because I knew that's what I was risking fighting him or Masvidal". McGregor evened the score five months later via majority decision.

Amongst those impressed by Diaz's stellar display was UFC commentator Joe Rogan, who is happy to see the Stockton native finally getting his dues.
