UFC President Dana White was a recent guest on ESPN’s Sports Center where he discussed what is next for UFC 202 headliners Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor.

“Well here is the thing. Everybody has to remember that that fight was put together because Conor McGregor’s opponent fell out (at UFC 196). So Nate Diaz stepped up and took it on short notice. Conor stepped up and took the fight. And you know it was such an exciting fight the first one that they wanted to do it again so we did it again. But they’re not in the same weight class. The fight doesn’t make sense. It’s not for any titles. It’s not for any ranking positions. It makes no sense. Conor is the 145-pound champion he needs to defend his title or give it up and decide what he wants to do next. And Nate doesn’t want to fight anybody but Conor McGregor. So I don’t know. We will see what happens with Nate. If he gets tired of sitting around maybe he will want to fight.”
