Tonight's highly anticipated press conference between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz didn't exactly live up to the hype.

A combination of an hour delay as both fighters failed to arrive at the venue on time, and microphones that left Nate Diaz more nonplussed with each question that was thrown his way meant it was something of a damp squib.

One of the more interesting things to emerge, however, came, as you might expect, from the mouth of Conor McGregor - the Irishman hinting that the UFC 202 meeting between the pair won't be their last.

"I feel we'll enter into a trilogy fight," McGregor told a packed out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. "Why not? It was a great fight last time, I really enjoyed it.

"I'll beat Nate (at UFC 202), dominate my division again and then we'll re-talk for the trilogy fight with Nate. I believe this will be a trilogy fight."

Considering the hype already surrounding the August 20 bout between the two UFC stars, a third fight is sure to be in the minds of the Mixed Martial Arts promotion's hierarchy. 

Although, if Diaz is able to make it two wins from two when he and McGregor enter the octagon next month, it is unclear whether the Stockton, California native would be up for a third fight with the series win already sealed. 

Then again, in the UFC money so often talks, and a trilogy fight would undoubtedly bring with it a lot of dollars.

UFC fans may have to wait until deep into 2017 for a third fight, however. As McGregor was keen to point out, he has plans to return and defend his Featherweight title once he has met Diaz at UFC 202.
