Nate Diaz may have hinted that his rematch with Conor McGregor is off.
Diaz and McGregor, 19-10 and 19-3 respectively, will lock horns with one another for the second time at UFC 202 on August 20.
The pair’s first encounter took place last March at UFC 196 and saw Diaz shock the world by handing McGregor his first loss inside the Octagon, which came via a second-round submission.

McGregor and Diaz’s rematch will once again take place in the welterweight division.
‘The Notorious’ is determined to avenge his sole UFC defeat and vowed to exact ‘revenge’ upon Diaz during a video appearance on the ‘Conan’ show yesterday evening.
