Conor McGregor Wants Diego Sanchez In Ireland Next Year

Conor McGregor Wants Diego Sanchez In Ireland Next Year

Conor McGregor remains focused on making his return to the Octagon in 2014 when the UFC heads to Ireland.

And, McGregor even has an opponent in mind: Diego Sanchez.

The two have had several Twitter exchanges in recent months, and that continued on Tuesday when Sanchez asked for an opponent.

“Man I need a fight!” he posted. “I’m pretty sure after Nate (Diaz) and Gray (Maynard) fight I’ll have a opponent. Want Diaz but it will prob be Gray.”

When asked about McGregor instead, Sanchez stated “because the point is to climb the ladder.”

The youngster from Ireland didn’t take to kindly, sending back a message of his own to Sanchez.

“Only reason you haven’t been cut 2 Bellator with the other has-beens is because you defend shots with your nose. 0-4,” he wrote.

    I hope Deigo tears him up.

    I hope (insert name) beats the piss outta Diego. Love to hate that crazy weird idiot. Entertaining fighter, though.

  • SBERG says:

    Don’t agree, I hope Diego takes it if it happens. That dude earned my respect bigtime in the Melendez fight. Is Conner a future force? Sure looks like it for now, injury aside. But what I don’t like is the overhype and apparent egotrip Conner is displaying.
    Guy has had 2, Yes I said 2 fights in the UFC against no one close to the top of the heap and now all of a sudden he calls when and where fights take place? Really?
    I want to see this fight happen but in no way should it happen in Conner’s backyard. He shouldn’t have that kind of pull. To me that looks bad…
