John Kavanagh may be the coach of Conor McGregor but he’s also a mouthpiece. His latest bombshell was that they were eyeing a trilogy bout with Nate Diaz and not a title shot against UFC lightweight champ and opponent slayer Khabib Nurmagomedov. Here’s his comment via MMAFighting.com:
Nate Diaz is my favorite fight, by the way. If I could pick a fight for the next one it would be that trilogy. I realize it’s not the fan-favorite. The fan favorite, without a close second, is the Khabib fight, but for me, it’s the Nate Diaz rematch and I think the Khabib fight is a lot more straight forward.
We’re okay with that because we love a good trilogy.
