Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz won't fight again claims top UFC boss

Published 1 Comments

UFC 202 has passed and the pay-per-view lived up to all of the hype that it was receiving prior to the first bell.

Rumble Johnson scored an incredible KO of Glover Teixeira, 'Cowboy' Cerrone was at his best in a dominating performance, while Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz went to war in a gruelling battle that lasted the full 25 minutes.

Naturally, with the series tied at one win apiece, the two fighters want to go at it one last to complete the trilogy. Dana White has something to say about that, however.

Speaking in a short interview with TMZ Sports, UFC president Dana White claimed that although he enjoyed the feud between McGregor and Diaz, it won't be reaching a trilogy.

"The war was fun and super successful but I'm moving on," White is reported to have said.

This isn't the first time that White has echoed those sentiments.

"We're definitely not doing this a third time right now," White said to FOX Sports after UFC 202 finished.

White didn't stop there, however, instead going on to lay out what McGregor's future will look like in the UFC when he comes back from his medical suspension.

According to White, The Notorious has two options: finally defend his featherweight title in a fight against Jose Aldo or have a go at the new UFC lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez. Interestingly, Alvarez himself has been discussing that possibility recently, but almost certainly only because he can see the dollar signs that any McGregor fight brings.
