    Who’s next for UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor – new interim titleholder Tony Ferguson or two-time former foe Nate Diaz?

    According to McGregor’s striking coach, Owen Roddy, both are intriguing options, though he personally prefers a third meeting with Diaz. And he thinks fans feel the same way.

    “I honestly think that people would rather – like, I think people would rather see Conor vs. Diaz,” he said. “I just think it’s a more exciting fight for everybody. It’s the trilogy. The first two fights, the back and forth between the guys and the way the fights went – you know, who wouldn’t want to see the third fight? But of course, it makes sense that he fights (Ferguson), he defends the belt.

    “Whatever happens, I don’t know, but I said this already: I would like to see (McGregor-Diaz 3). The Ferguson fight is an interesting one as well. Like, he’s an exciting fighter so it will be an exciting fight. So either or, either or.”

    Fight Nate after Cucuy, but unify the titles first.

    Fight against Nate would be great even if he loses to Ferg - he should keep that in his back pocket and fight Ferg first.

    What would be nice is if Nate fought Ferguson first because the winner would immediately emerge with a lot of heat and a title of course. Nate wants big money only though so likely wouldn't take that fight.

    Oh no doubt. I actually do wanna see that Nate Diaz Trilogy but defend the damn belt first
    These money fights have been going on for a year now and the divisions are all fucked and disorganized

    The money fight is the only course to reclaiming the money they spent

    Yeah I think the only way Tony gets this fight is if he goes on a non stop media rampage
    calling out Conor. He's got to be on every radio show and every camera that will allow him
    to go off

    What people will say if he fights Nate:

    "OH HE SCARED HE DON'T WANNA FIGHT FERGUSON."

    What people will say if he fights Ferguson:

    "OH HE SCARED OF LOSING TO NATE AGAIN."

    True.... but only haters will say both no matter what.

    If he fights T Ferg I'll have nothing to say but give him hespect for unifying.
    If he fights Nate I'm gonna say he needs to defend but you wont catch me just
    hating on him no matter what.

    Agree here but that's the position McG has put himself in. If only he would've defended one belt once all this would probably be a non issue or at least much less talked about.

    Fwiw I want the Diaz fight while still crying for belt legitimacy...FML.

    Dana don't give a fuck about what the fans want. He only cares about fighters defending belts and taking on #1 challengers.

    Can i get a hell yeah?!

    Only two things can happen imo

    Conor by KO
    Ferg by Sub

    Conor by KO

    Ferguson's boxing is hilariously unrefined.

    Maybe Conor is UFC's warning on why giving fighter's money is bad. Start grinding their feet on entire divisions. Smart move Dana, smart move.

    Wouldn't mind either fight happening though at this point. Expecting Diaz 3, would be a lovely surprise to see unification bout.

    Conor would knock Tony spark out, no question.

    Why don't the UFC just do another poll like they did with cormier?


    Also, Nate is the tougher fight cause he can eat Conor's punches.... tony would get TKOd

    I wouldn’t mind a love-triangle scenario.

    I’m excited for
    Conor vs Nate,
    Conor vs Ferguson, or
    Ferguson vs Nate

    Ferguson vs Nate... Damn that actually gives me goose bumps to think about

    10th Planet vs Gracie... Oh SNAP!

    Edit - Off topic and irrelevant, but I wonder if Edgie Brah knows he
    has to rename 10th Planet to 9th Planet cuz Pluto got demoted
    as the 9th planet so now there is only 8 planets so 10th Planet
    becomes 9th in the current scenario
