UFC 202: Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz 2

It sounds like McGregor feels that he can take on competitors far above his 145-pound weight class once again after defeating Diaz by majority decision at UFC 202 over the weekend.

McGregor posted a photo to Instagram of he and Diaz shaking hands after the fight and said, “Great fight, much respect.
I’ll take a heavyweight next.”

Great fight, much respect. I'll take a heavyweight next.
