Conor McGregor responded to several fans on Twitter this afternoon, and in addition to hyping his drawing prowess, he also touched on his loss to Nate Diaz, why he thinks the eventual rematch will be different, and defending his Featherweight Title later in the year.

Penick’s Analysis: McGregor honestly believes whatever factors led to him losing that fight with Diaz are correctable in a full camp into a rematch, and they might be. Whether he still gets the opportunity to prove that is what remains to be seen. If the UFC just re-books that fight for one of the other cards coming up this summer, they’ve got another huge pay-per-view draw on the docket. If they make him wait for the Aldo-Edgar winner following the UFC 200 spat, then it’s all for naught.
