16:38, 10 Feb 2019

“Book it. I’ll fight Nate on it.” In music to most UFC fans’ ears, Conor McGregor has declared that he is ready to take on Nate Diaz for what would be their third fight in the Octagon.

Each meeting has been a sell-out affair and the news will certainly excite the ever-expanding UFC fanbase after McGregor took to Twitter to say that he would be reading to fight the American on May 11th - at UFC 237 - at Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil.

McGregor hasn’t fought since tapping out to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October.

Diaz and Mystic Mac have a win apiece when facing each other.

At UFC 196, Diaz was the original winner via a rear-naked choke in the second round. Their highly-anticipated rematch at UFC 202 in August 2016 saw McGregor emerge victorious.

McGregor was expected to make a return against veteran fighter Donald ‘Cowboy; Cerrone who has previously called The Notorious out;

"I think [McGregor's] side is interested in it, I know I'm very interested, and for the UFC, that's a money fight," Cerrone told ESPN.

"By no means am I overlooking Alex. I'm focused on getting through him, and Conor is potentially what's next.

 "I don't see why he would turn the fight down. I'm interested to see how it all plays out. I'm pretty sure Conor and I will be meeting in the Octagon soon."

If there’s one fight UFC fans want however, will be seeing two of the most prestigious pay-per-view fighters in the history of the sport to complete their - always entertaining - trilogy.
