Conor McGregor told to make rematch amid Nate Diaz feud
Conor McGregor has been told to make a rematch his priority for a UFC return – but not against Nate Diaz.
The Irish superstar has not featured in the Octagon since being beaten by Khabib Nurmagomedov last year but has been tipped to come out of retirement to return to action.
His feud with Nate Diaz has been tipped to reach a trilogy after the pair become embroiled in a fresh war of words this week.
But former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has told McGregor he should instead make a rematch against Jose Aldo, who he knocked out in 13-seconds in dramatic fashion at UFC 194 in December 2015.
“That’s the fight to make [McGregor vs. Aldo II], if I’m honest,” Bisping said on his Believe You Me podcast.
"Conor’s gotta get back in the winning circle. If he fights Khabib, more than likely that’s not gonna happen. Could he catch him with a good shot and rock him and follow it up? Yeah, of course he could.
"But more than likely Khabib’s gonna take his best shot, he’s gonna take him down and we’re gonna have a replay of what happened last time.
“Aldo and McGregor, the buildup to that fight was huge. It ended amazingly in 13 seconds and well done to McGregor.
"I think people would love to see that because a lot of people feel that Aldo could do better in the rematch. And that’s definitely a very winnable fight for Conor.
"Of course we saw what happened the first time, the second time who knows what’s gonna happen? But it’s a very winnable fight.”
