Backstage interview

21 Aug, 2016

McGregor gives a backstage interview. On what he said to Diaz.

You’re a f-ckin’ absolute warrior. Respect. We’ll do it again.

Will trilogy be his next fight?

Probably not. The belt situation is lingering. I’ve gotta talk about what’s next. I’m speaking to new people right now. There’s a lot of options. And some might not be this sport.

About Diaz comments that he was ‘running away’:

He’s a big boy. A big volume puncher. I had to get out of there, being the beats down and settle myself. But he’ll drop too. I was on my feet the whole time. I wasn’t wobbled or nothing… Fair play to him…The class was evident in the early rounds of that fight. His size and his durability came into it in the later rounds. But I’m the better fighter, it’s as simple as that.
