Nate Diaz reportedly in talks with August UFC return

Conor Mc Gregor Owen Roddy

Shields also dismissed the notion of Diaz's lengthy hiatus being down to his eagerness to have a trilogy fight with McGregor, saying: "He's not just looking for Conor". Despite Diaz introducing himself to the entire combat sports world as a legitimate star during the two-fight series with McGregor, White and UFC never really seemed to embrace the brash fighter and they've been unable to come to any sort of an agreement on a return to this point.

In the wake of this violent attack, everyone speculating just how UFC and president Dana White plan to handle their cash cow, White recently offered up the politically correct answer of letting the court handle its business with the Conor Mcgregor first.

Although McGregor's UFC future remains in question, it's clear the company wants to take advantage of all the hype, and that would mean a lightweight championship fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor if (when) he gets back in the octagon.

"If you do a fight that big, you've got to do it in Vegas", White said. Five of McGregor's 10 UFC bouts have taken place in the Nevada city. "Khabib will fight in Russian Federation at some point, but it won't be that fight". The UFC would prefer to have that fight in its backyard.


"Conor's a mad thing", Roddy said.

White has however refused to confirm that a deal is in place for the lightweight to fight at that event. I might do it in Russian Federation'.

"'I'll get one of those yokes to put on my shoulders to get the lats'". He was serious. Dead serious. "Now he always says he does that on goal, but I don't think so". That's what we love him for. But more than that, who should is first opponent be upon his return? It would be an exciting fight. "I think he'll probably be sentenced to some form of community service or something of that nature, and the case will go away".
