Dana White Comments On McGregor vs Diaz III Rumours

Dana White Comments On McGregor vs Diaz III Rumours”

On Sunday, Irish tabloid The Sunday World reported that UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor was all-but-official to face archrival Nate Diaz at UFC 219, scheduled for December 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

However, it seems as though these initial reports may be wide of the mark, with Dana White claiming there is absolutely no truth to the story when responding to a Tweet, overnight.

Reports from Ireland over the weekend had suggested that reigning lightweight champion McGregor and arch-nemesis Diaz would likely square off in the octagon for the third time at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena on Saturday 30 December as the headline bout of UFC 219.

Still, McGregor generally doesn't shy away from daunting challenges and sometimes moves in mysterious ways, while White has been known to deny things that have later been proven to be true, so it would be wise not to completely rule out the possibility that the Irishman could yet set foot in the Octagon again before the year is over.

Conor McGregor was most recently seen in action last month when he made his professional boxing debut opposite undefeated legend Floyd Mayweather.

Nonetheless, in the wake of McGregor's loss to Mayweather, the majority of discussion centering on the Irishman's future has hinged on when and where he will rematch Diaz. In March of that year, the Stockton fighter scored a second round submission over McGregor. He has yet to defend the title inside the Octagon; top challengers Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee will square off at UFC 216 on October 7 to determine the interim UFC 155-pound champion.

The brash Dubliner has fought in the UFC just once since that latter meeting, stopping Eddie Alvarez in the second round of their UFC 205 clash in New York City in November to make history as the first man ever to hold two UFC titles concurrently.
