The rumor mill is a buzzin', and it looks like all signs are pointing to a Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor rematch at UFC 200.

But in what weight division?

It all started on March 18th when multiple sources reported that Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor were looking to get the UFC 200 slot.

Then, Conor McGregor's coach, John Kavanagh said that it was likely to happen as well.

"I believe it is going to be announced this week," Kavanagh told the Daily Star.

Kavanagh has heard the critics who believe McGregor should defend his featherweight title instead of going straight to a rematch with Diaz, who submitted McGregor in the second round of their UFC 196 fight.

But the way he looks at it, some fans will complain no matter who gets announced as McGregor's foe.

"Whoever it is there will be a group of fans that will go, ‘Oh I didn't want to see that, I wanted to see this,'" Kavanagh said. "The truth is when it is all said and done, fast forward three or four years when he is wrapping up his career, everybody will have been met. All styles will have been beaten."

Then Nate Diaz went on SportsNation where he said some more shit that might provoke a fight.

"He's got his little moves, so he's probably got a bunch of stuff lined up," Diaz said Thursday on ESPN's SportsNation. "But there is not much to say."

He added,

"Yeah, it does bother me. He was already talking about going up and fighting the welterweight champ and taking him out and even fighting at 185 and all these things. When he lost the fight, he's getting all this credit for going up two weight classes. But I'm really only one weight class above him. I'm a lightweight.
"I'm only one class ahead of him. He's moving up and he already talked about being the welterweight champ. Now he fought a lightweight contender and he's talking he went up two weight classes."

He even was light about how he didn't even really have to do a camp or train and still was able to submit McGregor at UFC 196...

"Maybe just don't do camp again, see what happens," Diaz said with a laugh.

What do you think?
