Conor McGregor wants to fight in Brazil. And now he has an idea of who it should be against.
After Anderson Silva was asked who he’d like to fight in Curitiba, Brazil, he suggested a rematch with Nick Diaz could work well as their original bout was ruled a no contest. In fact, Silva said, he’d already spoken with Diaz and they’d agreed on the idea and just needed approval from UFC president Dana White.
Then, McGregor threw out another idea. Why not put Silva vs. Diaz on the fight, and use the opportunity to bring the other Diaz brother out of his sabbatical?
"I think it makes sense for me and Nick Diaz to fight in Curitiba."
