When Conor McGregor lost to Nate Diaz at UFC 196, he told UFC brass that he was "obsessed" with a Diaz rematch. So, the UFC granted him his wish.

Now, Diaz is in the position of wanting an immediate rematch after his majority decision loss to McGregor. Will he get it?

"I'm still waiting for Dana [White] and Lorenzo [Fertitta] to show up to my house to see how obsessed I am," Diaz told MMA Fighting.

Diaz, in the interview, also asked White and Fertitta to come and visit him in Stockton, so they can discuss a rematch.

Nate has said that he won't fight again unless it's against McGregor. He reportedly made at least $5 million for their August 20 rematch. Short of a trilogy-ender with Conor, Diaz would be hard-pressed to make anything close to that in a fight with anyone else.

Diaz lost a majority decision, but it was a close fight that some observers believe he won. One judge scored the fight even, while the two others scored the fight for McGregor, 48-47.

McGregor is reportedly going to fight at lightweight next, but the UFC has not announced what the plans are for Diaz or McGregor, yet.
