Even with a card full of superstars and an arena full of entertainment's elite, the name uttered most after Conor McGregor Saturday night was "Nate Diaz." Now that Mystic Mac is a dual-weight champ with his eyes set on ownership, everyone's asking, "what's next?" The popular answer is an end to the Diaz/McGregor trilogy.

It's hard to deny. And now with McGregor holding the lightweight belt, it could prove to be the biggest fight ever.

But before we get ahead of ourselves with Diaz/McGregor 3 dancing in our brains, visited SportsCenter to talk about UFC 205, event ticket conspiracies, and Conor McGregor's push to the moon. Nate said he and his brother Nick were possibly purposefully kept away from McGregor's special night.

"The UFC didn't want to give me tickets to this fight. I think they wanted to keep me out of the mix and hide me from the whole thing. It might've been in his contract, 'don't let Nate Diaz in here.'"

He made it in.

Regarding the thrashing of Eddie Alvarez, Nate was his usual, honest self:

But obviously, in the end, all that matters is the third fight. Thankfully, Nate wants it to happen, and he articulates his feelings in the most Nate Diaz way possible.

"Of course if I want to do anything that's what I want, a third fight. I'm not begging for no fight, it's all good with me. I don't need to fight anybody. I don't need to do this interview."

Just book it, Dana.
