UFC commentator Joe Rogan believes that after losing in the trilogy with Dustin Poirier at the UFC 264 tournament, the former champion of the promotion in two weight categories, Conor McGregor, can hold a third fight with Nate Diaz.
Conor McGregor’s future is one of the most unpredictable things in MMA. The Irishman recently suffered a devastating ankle break and will need more time to recover, with UFC president Dana White predicting he will be out for over a year.
Nevertheless, fans love to speculate, and UFC commentator and podcast host Joe Rogan spoke about McGregor’s future while speaking with Shane Gillis. MMA Sound re-uploaded a snippet of the podcast to YouTube. In the short video, Gillis and Rogan were talking about Conor McGregor’s rivalry with Nate Diaz. Rogan exclaimed McGregor would fight Diaz next.
“That’s next, the third one’s next, I guarantee you. That’s it, that’s the fight. If Nate Diaz had fights with no time limit, he’d win them all. He hurts Leon Edwards and points out, it’s like, ‘Yeah, I got you,'” Rogan said.
He also spoke about Diaz’s fight with Leon Edwards, saying that ‘The Stockton Slugger’ did the right thing by not rushing in for the kill shot against Leon Edwards.
“He did exactly what you’re supposed to do. Leon’s not dead, like you don’t just go after him, you go after him, you run into a straight left,” Rogan said.
While Diaz wasn’t able to finish Edwards, his fans enjoyed the fight. Diaz was at his entertaining best, and everyone would love to watch him fight again, especially against Conor McGregor.
