Nate Diaz thinks he is 2-0 against Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz went to war at UFC 202 last month and McGregor came out the righteous victor.

The Notorious One clearly won rounds 1, 2 and 4 and was handed the victory on a majority decision from the judges, with two awarding the fight to McGregor and the other calling it as a draw.

Despite not really getting that close on the scorecards, Nate Diaz is, for some reason, still claiming that he actually won the fight against McGregor.

Speaking in a recent interview on Chael Sonnen's podcast, the Stockton-born scrapper seems to maintain that he was victorious in both battles with his Irish counterpart - and that he absolutely has no reason to fight McGregor for a third time.

Yes, he really said this. Everyone else is just as confused as you are.

"It's whatever to me," Diaz told Sonnen. "I won the fight. I'm not jumping for joy for round three."

"I think I beat him twice and it's 2-0, as far as I'm concerned. If they're gonna want to do it down the road, I don't know. I'm not in a hurry. It's all good."

Diaz almost certainly has options on the table, but none of them will be as good as another fight with McGregor - especially in terms of how much money he will be getting.

However, the UFC and Dana White are dead set against that trilogy match happening anytime soon, so Diaz is almost certainly trying to save face with this statement. Especially when McGregor has his pick of fights, unlike he does.
