Thursday the UFC held a media day promoting this weekend’s UFC 199 in Los Angeles, CA. Although Conor McGregor is not scheduled to fight, he was still a hot topic for the media with UFC President Dana White.
When asked about an update, White said he was unsure the Diaz vs. McGregor rematch will ever happen, but was working on it and a potential different fight for McGregor:
“The reality is that since that Conor McGregor fight — obviously when you win a fight of that magnitude, it has definitely rubbed off on Nate,” White said. “People do want to see Nate fight. People do want to see this fight again, and I’m one of those guys who, I want to make the fight that people want to see, and I believe people do want to see this fight.
“But, people do want to see Conor McGregor vs. Frankie Edgar or Jose Aldo again too. I’m sure they would want to see him fight Rafael dos Anjos at 155 for that title, so there’s a lot of fights out there for Conor, if we can’t get this Nate fight done.”
