Nate Diaz doesn't want to fight again until he gets another shot at Conor McGregor.

Diaz spoke to the press shortly after his majority decision loss to McGregor, which evened them up at 1-1, setting the pair up for a potential third fight.

It seems like McGregor learned from the last time, as he implemented an intelligent strategy and fought in a style he's never executed in past fights. McGregor fought Diaz like he's never fought an opponent before and it worked.

After watching one of the best wars of the year , it's hard to think about seeing it again so soon. However, that's not how Diaz sees it.

In the post fight interview with Joe Rogan, McGregor said if they were to fight again it'd be on his terms at lightweight. According to Diaz though, he's willing to sit out and wait until this trilogy can close out because, after this $2 million payday, he doesn't need another fight.

"I thought I won that fight, they can't have a motherf--ker like me winning, I'm too real for this sport," Diaz said. "He should've finished me off, I want number three, I gave him number two the second day, so I'm ready to go again ... Hey, good job today Conor, but we going for three, for real, until then I ain't coming back."
