Conor McGregor continues to make comments on social media as he waits for the UFC to re-book his rematch with Nate Diaz. Here’s his latest from Instagram:
Working the rear hand uppercut with Roddy prior to UFC 196. A shot I called pre fight. Who else can call a shot like the rear hand uppercut on a big 6 foot lurch and then go out and dig that baby repeatedly into the nose? Anyone? Didn’t think so. Mark my fucking words I am going to toy with him in the rematch. Believe that.
Penick’s Analysis: McGregor wants the UFC to book this fight, something they may not be willing to do after taking him off UFC 200. They’ve said he’ll defend the Featherweight Title next, but I’d expect they’ll give him the fight again. It leaves far too much money on the table to not have it booked at UFC 201 or UFC 202 in order to set up the Featherweight Title bout later in the year. I expect him to get the chance once the song and dance is over with, but for now it’s a continued holding pattern until they decide to move forward.
