Yeah it seemed for a minute that UFC posterboy Conor McGregor was going to head to Mexico and face Diego Sanchez. I mean he said it right?
I am fighting @DiegoSanchezUFC in Mexico, November 15th. He spoke a big game. Now he will pay with his career. VIVA LA EIRE!!!

Turns out McGregor isn’t fighting Sanchez at all. Sanchez will still meet Norman Parke at UFC 180. Dana White dismissed McGregor’s statement. ESPN’s Brett Okamoto asked White about the fight and posted this “Dana White on Conor in Mexico: That kid is nuts. No he’s not. He wants to but he’s not,”
Too bad. McGregor vs. Sanchez would have been awesome!
