Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz III
I can’t think of a more anticipated trilogy bout than Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz III.
Their first two fights were instant classics and there is little doubt that a third and final bout would be epic. A McGregor/Diaz rubber match feels necessary for these fighters and their legacies. Not to mention its one of the most profitable fights the UFC can book come the new year.
Diaz is still in MMA limbo as he was set to face Dustin Poirier at UFC 230 but the fight fell through as Poirier withdrew from the contest due to an injury.
As for McGregor, the Diaz trilogy fight could be the perfect fight to take as the new year is ushered in. Besides padding the bank account, a win over Diaz could be exactly what the doctor ordered for the Irishman.
