Diaz warns Chandler not to beat McGregor in UFC fight



NATE Diaz has told Michael Chandler not to beat UFC rival, Conor McGregor in their upcoming grudge fight later this year.

  McGregor and Chandler are currently filming season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter together in Las Vegas before they face each other in the octagon. Former two-weight champion, McGregor will look to pick up his first UFC win in over three years when he faces Chandler, who has been calling for a fight against the Irishman since signing with the UFC two years ago.

  UFC boss, Dana White revealed that McGregor and Chandler were on good terms at the start of filming their reality show but have since had a falling out, with a “lot of s***” going down between them. Chandler bumped into Diaz at UFC 285 this past weekend and explained why he jokingly told him not to beat McGregor in their fight.

  “He said don’t you go winning because we’re gonna do something,” Chandler told Inside Fighting. “We’ll see what happens. “We’re about half and half [in his relationship with McGregor] Yeah. We are mutually beneficial opportunists who love to compete against each other. That’s where we’re at right now. I finish him in the second round, that’s a mystic Mike projection.”

  Diaz has been expected to meet McGregor in a trilogy fight for years with the scores between the rivals at one apiece following their two-fight encounter in 2016. A third fight was put in jeopardy when Diaz left the UFC last September having spent 15 years fighting for the promotion.
