McGregor – Diaz 3 not happening any time soon
Two of the biggest fights in the UFC in the past year were the fights between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, with a win each there were hopes of a final trilogy fight.
These fights had everything, McGregor defeated, his win or learn attitude after defeat, one of the fights of the year in second fight, the trash talk between them and the press conferences that verged on riots. You would think it would make sense for the UFC to make the third fight.
Not so according to Dana White because he can’t justify it.
He told the ‘Michael Kay Show‘
“We should have never done it in the first place. That’s what weight classes are for. They wanted to do it, we did it. They wanted to do it again, we did it again. They’re 1-1.
“There’s only so many of those wars you can be in, in your career and it takes a lot out of you. Some guys go into wars like that and they’re never the same after.”
“Look at Meldrick Taylor when he fought Julio Caesar-Chavez, there’s one for you. I mean he was never the same after that fight. We’ve had those types of fights too. I believe that Rory MacDonald was never the same after the Robbie Lawler fight. That fight ruined him.”
“So I don’t want to do that to someone special like Conor McGregor. It’s just not right.”
