Conor McGregor has proven himself as one of the most unpredictable fighter’s in the UFC, whether it’s inside of the Octagon, in media appearances, or when he signs on the dotted line for his next fight.

The announcement that he will be challenging Eddie Alvarez on November 12 for the lightweight championship also came as a surprise, considering fans thought there were other avenues he could have gone down.

WARNING FOR DIAZ

One of those options, despite president Dana White ruling it out, was a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz with the scores currently 1-1 after the Irishman was victorious in their rematch.

However, speaking to the LAD Bible while promoting the Call of Duty video game, Notorious doesn’t have Diaz in his sights in the near future

He has also warned the Stockton native and his camp to stay away from a third fight for his own benefit.

He said: “I think potentially so. The more I think about it, Nate is going to be…there was a lot of damage done to Nathan in that last fight.

CASH YOUR MONEY AND BOUNCE

“You know, looking at his face it just didn’t look the same. I know those close to him will understand what I’m talking about. So there could be a potential fight maybe down the line for the lightweight belt after I win this one.

“To see him have to make the weight. And then to see the damage that he took in the last fight and then come in at a much lower weight. It wouldn’t end good for him. So I’d imagine, and I would probably hope that his people close to him would stop him from doing it.

“It’s done not. Cash your money and bounce.”

Of course, it could just be another way to hype up the inevitable third fight in the long run, but Diaz has responded to that claim after he was made aware of McGregor’s comments.

Taking to his Instagram account, Diaz posted a picture of McGregor leaving UFC 202 on crutches, with the caption: “I was ready for round 3 that nite were you?”

Diaz has already made it clear that he won't compete until he's granted a third fight with McGregor, which might not be a great idea considering he's already reached new heights of popularity and wouldn't want his stock to decrease by sitting on the sidelines.

With both fighters sitting at one a piece, there simply has to be an end to this bitter rivalry, and what better to raise the stakes than by having the lightweight title on the line?

That’s unless Alvarez has other ideas.
