Everybody is still yearning for a piece of Conor McGregor, this despite the fact that he is no longer a title holder.
But the name itself is still strong and would command a big paycheck for all parties involved.
That’s why longtime UFC veteran Diego Sanchez is calling or his final fight to be against McGregor.
“My goals in these last four fights in the UFC is to finish strong, to finish healthy,” Sanchez said (via Essentially Sports).
“I shoot for the moon man, I shoot for the moon in everything I do. I’m looking for legend fights. I’m not looking past Jake Matthews, but I’m looking for some legend fights.”
“Nick Diaz is coming back,” Sanchez said. “There’s some other names, Nate Diaz, there’s a lot of big fights that would be appealing for the fans. I said I shoot for the moon, Conor McGregor is the number four fight.
“I envision myself dominating these next three fights and finishing my career with a fight with Conor McGregor. That’s my dream, that’s my vision. As I build my legacy and his does what his does, I’ll be waiting if he wants to do it at the end of the road.”
Believe it or not there was a time when Conor had his sights on McGregor, though it was way back in 2014.
Of course, the line of people wanting a piece of COnor stretches around the block, so the chances of Sanchez getting that fight are unlikely.
For now, “The Nightmare” will face Jake Matthews at UFC 253 this Saturday on “Fight Island.”
