UFC202: Nate Diaz won’t fight again until trilogy fight with Conor McGregor happens

After the dust settled inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada following last night’s (Sat., Aug. 20, 2016) UFC 202 pay-per-view (PPV) event, all the talk was about a potential trilogy match between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.

After all, “Notorious” evened the score at one after outscoring the Stockton slugger following an epic 25-minute war (see it again here) that had fans and even UFC president Dana White raving.

That said, White wasn’t too convinced a trilogy fight between the two men would happen right away, as he stated that “Notorious” would have to defend his Featherweight title next. Which mean Diaz will have to either sit idle or take another fight over the next year.

As Diaz told the media after the fight, he isn’t going to “do shit” until he gets another crack at Conor.

“I’m not doing (expletive) until we go for round three. You won’t be seeing me until then,” he said via Fox Sports. “If they want set it up as soon as possible, let’s do it.”

Still, Diaz isn’t putting any pressure on McGregor to run it back right away, saying that he can go rest, take a vacation and heal up before they settle the score. One thing he doesn’t ant the Irishman doing, though, is taking another fight, especially not a title unification fight against Jose Aldo.

“I don’t think it’s a very good business move for him to be taking any other fights. He’s a businessman. So we’ll see what happens.”

Thankfully, Diaz can sit back and enjoy life for as long as he so desires after earning the biggest payout of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career to the tune of $2 million guaranteed. Plus, he banked an extra $50,000 “Fight of the Night” bonus, as well.

That said, Nate says his salary — although impressive — is still not enough.

“It’s still not enough,” he claimed. “It’s never going to be enough. Look at my face and I’m OK. People looking at this face probably back crying somewhere probably, he said. “It’s always going to be more.”

The good news for Diaz is, Conor is more than willing to run it back, albeit at 155 pounds this time around.

And since he’s not too keen on facing Aldo next, if the two men force Dana White’s hand, they could be stepping inside the Octagon for a third and final time sooner, rather than later.

Brock Lesnar temporarily suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission

On Tuesday morning, Lesnar got word that he’s been issued a temporary suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission as a result of his multiple drug failures following UFC 200. It’s the first step in a process that will eventually lead to a formal hearing where Lesnar could face a two-year suspension under USADA guidelines.

MMA Fighting’s Shaun Al-Shatti first reported the news.

The 39-year-old tested positive for hydroxy clomiphene in two separate tests, one on June 28th prior to UFC 200 and then during an in-competition test at the show. Lesnar bested Mark Hunt via unanimous decision in his first appearance back in the UFC in nearly five years.
