Conor McGregor's loss to Nate Diaz was shocking to many, and excuses were quickly made to defend the Irishman from the naysayers who tried to claim his reign as the star of the UFC may be coming to a close.

Well, not only is he still the featherweight champion in the sport, he's still one of its elite fighters. And perhaps a rematch between Diaz and McGregor will go down in which case McGregor has a few words for the man that took him down a few pegs via submission.

On Instagram of course...

McGregor's head coach at SBG Ireland, John Kavanagh, recently told Britain's Daily Star that an official UFC announcement is expected to come soon, potentially "this week."

Kavanagh also answered critics who have complained that McGregor should defend his featherweight belt against either Frankie Edgar or Jose Aldo at UFC 200.

"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."

What do you think?

Who takes the rematch between the two fighters?
