Nate Diaz shoots down allegations that he’ll give the win to Conor McGregor

With the wait almost over for the UFC 202 event, both Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz were fielded questions - separately - from the fans and the media following their high-profile water bottle bust-up earlier in the week.

There has been plenty of bad blood, and the verbal war has shown no signs of ending anytime soon, and McGregor has remained vocal about doing this three times regardless of the result of their second fight.


Business-wise, it makes perfect sense as there’s so much money involved in a match of this stature, especially when you consider how their first encounter ended.

However, with the rumours that a trilogy is on the cards, many have assumed that the best way to make this happen is by Diaz losing, effectively setting up a rubber match with even more money involved.

In a video uploaded to Sherdog, the question was asked by a journalist to Diaz, when he referred to speculation that he would ‘give’ McGregor the second fight to set up the trilogy for more money, and asked if that was a possibility.


Diaz refused to mix himself up with these allegations, saying: “I’m here to win, that’s what I’m here for.

“You can't pay me to lose.”

The fixing allegations didn’t end there, another question was asked regarding their press-conference antics, with another journalist asking whether the ‘fracas was staged’.

Again, Diaz didn’t let this sort of talk affect him too much, saying: “Take it how you want it.”

It was a calmer approach from Diaz, and the question and answer sessions definitely contrasted between Diaz and McGregor.

While Diaz was the calmer man and shot down the fixing claims, which could have potentially riled him up, McGregor took a more aggressive route during his session in an X-rated rant, calling the Diaz brother ‘cockroaches’.

The doubt will always remain regarding the potential of a fixed fight, but Diaz could put an end to the ridiculous allegations by giving McGregor a second successive loss in the UFC
