Conor McGregor's next fight: Coach Kavanagh reveals who he wants next

Conor Mc Gregor vs Nate Diaz title

There was still lots of hope to cling to, that one of the UFC's fiercest rivalries would be renewed, and the latest comments from McGregor's coach John Kavanagh will only set the wheels in motion for the proverbial hype train.

He added: "If it was my choice, and I must stress that this is only my choice and that doesn't mean it's going to happen, it would be Nate Diaz in March". "That's what I would push towards".

The man at the helm of SBG Ireland suggested that a St. Patrick's Day showdown with Nathan Diaz at Madison Square Garden in New York City would be his preferred opponent, date and venue for McGregor's first UFC appearance since claiming the lightweight title at the hallowed arena in November 2015.

"I always think that if I was to develop a fighter that would give Conor his best or worst night, either way you look at it, I would come up with Nate Diaz", said Kavanagh. That's what I would wish for.

"That's what I'll be leaning towards with my 0.1 percent influence when I meet with Conor and Audie Attar (McGregor's agent) tomorrow". I want Diaz 3, Paddy's Day in NY.

Tony Ferguson wants to make it clear that interim title bouts have a objective. It'll headline the UFC 216 card.

Huddersfield Town vs Tottenham Hotspur - betting tips and predictions
The hosts will have a slight advantage of playing against the team that was involved in an away midweek European competition. Merson believes that Pochettino was too complacent when Spurs played Swansea City in their last Premier League home match.

"Really, Conor doesn't have to do that anymore".

There's that and simply the allure of Diaz. Anything else, as far as him trying to fight Nate, the (expletive) rankings and everything else that the UFC stands for, goes out the window, man. "He can walk through anything". "He can walk through anything, he can match him somewhat in the trash talk and then you have the thing between Conor's crew and his crew".

He reckons another scrap with Diaz will get fight fans on the edge of their seats. "So, right now were just buying time and trying to make a move becasue we are all going to be chasing after him". This is professional, and it's about entertainment.

Cormier, is, of course, the light-heavyweight champion whose own heavyweight record stands at a flawless 13-0 and in fact, he managed to beat out the likes of Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and Josh Barnett to win the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix before he had even cleared his tenth professional fight.

They have to settle the score. However, it should be noted both Madison Square Garden in New York City and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn are already booked on St. Patrick's Day with a pair of National Basketball Association games. Again, it's an approach that makes complete sense for the Irish standout, but it shouldn't have to happen at the expense of everyone else who operates within the "work your way up the ladder in hopes of fighting for the title" system that has always been in place.
