Even when he’s not fighting, Conor McGregor knows how to steal the headlines.
More recently, “Notorious” took the time to respond to the rumors of Nick Diz returning.
Of course, Nick is Nate Diaz’s older brother, who recently set the MMA world a blaze after his manager revealed that a comeback to MMA was possible.

Of course, it is well-documented that Nick hasn’t competed in five years.
That’s a lot of time to be away from fighting. Still, his camp seems to think he is ready to mount a comeback and will be an interested observer in the Welterweight division.
Conor fights at 170 as well, so booking a match up between them would do gangbusters at the box office.
The story is already written thanks to Conor and Nate’s bitter rivalry.
Furthermore, the lead up to the fight might be even more epic than the fight itself,f as Diaz and McGregor have been known to drop several memorable soundbites during press conferences.

And let’s not forget this near-brawl at another press conference, which also included Nick:
