In an interview with MMA Junkie, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor revealed that he’s considering a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz in the future. McGregor is currently set to fight Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match next month in Las Vegas. Here are highlights:

On fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov in Russia: “It’s certainly one of the things I would like to do. Whether it’s next, I don’t know. I don’t even know how close the Russia thing is. Whether Khabib can pull his (expletive) together; he missed weight.”

On other possible contenders: “There’s a few of them in the mix. A few of them need to pull their (expletive) together, though, and get interest going and get me interested. Right now I don’t actually see anything.”

On Nate Diaz: “That Diaz trilogy is also on my mind. He should really be thankful. Before he fought me he was (getting paid) 20,000 to show and 20,000 to win. His 19th fight in the UFC, and he was on 40 grand. Now he’s a multi-millionaire. So, I don’t know why he’s sitting there so bitter. Maybe them smacks he took in that rematch messed with his head a little bit. I hope not, but I think they did.”
