John Kavanagh: Conor McGregor Should Fight Nate Diaz Next to Complete Trilogy

Should Conor McGregor complete trilogy with Nate Diaz?

To say Conor McGregor hasn’t been through a ton this year would be a vast understatement. Conor McGregor has been going through a ton of legal issues as well as coming up short against Khabib Nurmagomedov in his last fight, A bitter pill to swallow for the brash Irishman.

While Conor McGregor has been campaigning for a rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov, it appears unlikely as the UFC lightweight champion is set to defend his belt against Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi.

But there are still some great fights for Conor McGregor to take. The lightweight division in the UFC is absolutely stacked and filled with a great deal of dance partners for the former champion.

One name that comes to mind is Nate Diaz.

Currently Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz have gone one and one in their two record breaking bouts. There is certainly still some unfinished business between the two and completing a trilogy would answer the question as to who the better fighter truly is (at least in the eyes of the casual fan).

John Kavanagh, the famed coach of Conor McGregor, believes that a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz is perhaps the best move for his pupil to take. The fight would be as high profile as any of McGregor’s previous bouts and would likely generate enough interest in a rematch for the UFC lightweight title. Here’s what John Kavanagh had to say about a potential trilogy match between Conor McGregor and bitter rival Nate Diaz.
