Earlier this month, I brought you the rumors that Conor McGregor would be walking away from MMA after UFC 205. The news was being described as an “out-of-left-field” announcement that would take place after UFC 205 in New York City. Well, as it turns out, that announcement may be something COMPLETELY different than retirement. Certainly more exciting.
During an episode of Joe Rogan’s podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan says he heard a rumor that McGregor’s ‘out-0f-left-field’ announcement will be that he will not be having a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz, but a fight with Nate’s brother Nick Diaz instead.
Wow. Talk about a bombshell. Not only is Nick Diaz a bigger athlete, he’s a better fighter than his brother, too. Take our money now, UFC. Sign us up. We’re all in on this fight.
