If Diego Sanchez wants a fight with the Irish fighter, Conor McGregor said he’s willing to oblige – on his terms.

I have very little interest in this fight. Sure it's fun to make fun of Diego but why move up to LW just to settle twitter beef? Twitter makes these men into 13 year old girls...

Bubbles, if you want to go 3 out of 5 I will take you up on that!

I honestly think the only way Sanchez could beat McGregor would be if Conor injured himself mid fight. I'm no nuthugger of Conor, but Sanchez is 1-6 in his last seven fights. (If you believe he lost to Kampmann and Gomi, which I hope everyone does)

See Diego Sanchez vs Alex Karalexis or Diego Sanchez vs Josh Rafferty to see how Diego Sanchez wins this fight

Another sad attempt and call out from him to try to stay irrelevant when he's out on injury.

I say match him up with the Cole Miller/Sam Sicilia winner.

actually my record vs you is only 1-2...get cho factz strait yo If this fight takes place, you and I have a deal

I'll give you the Kampmann fight but iirc the Gomi fight was a little closer than most are giving it credit for. I can score it either way. But having said that, if the Kampmann decision didn't go his way, he wouldn't have fought Ellenberger nor Melendez and probably has an improved record.

Also, almost all of those fights are against the cream of the crop at BOTH LW and WW, not some mid level undercard fighter (Brimage) or a very young and green prospect (Holloway) both at 145. At the time of the fight:
Penn: LW champion, only got stopped because of a cut
Hathaway: 14-0 and a hot WW prospect who was 3-0 in the UFC
Thiago: 13-3 and a top 10-15 WW
Kampmann: top 10 WW, possible title contender if he got the nod vs Shields in his previous fight
Ellenberger: top 10 WW
Gomi: while past his prime, he's a far better fighter in Japan than North America
Melendez: top 3 LW, arguably beat Bendo for the belt.

that's a fairly tough stretch over 2 divisions

Diego would destroy this punk and embarrass him badly. I'm all for that!

if this happened at LW..it would be bad for Conor..Sanchez may not have the best striking..but Sanchez wrestling is much better then Conor..Sanchez would gain more weight at LW, while Conor himself would only still be round the 155 mark..i think Conor is starting to get a lil ahead of himself, only beat 2 guys in the B / C level rank while Sanchez has fought the much tougher opponents and done well..

Diego called Conor out first

If this does happen I'll AV bet anyone that McGregor wins.

Diego's a great fighter who's exciting and has a lot of heart, but McGregor is more simply more skilled.

Diego's only chance of winning IMO would be by pushing McGregor against the cage and trying to take him down constantly for the entire duration of the fight, but I don't think he'd do that. I think Diego would fight it out with McGregor on the feet for a lot of the fight, and I do believe McGregor will absolutely tool Sanchez on the feet.

If it's a five rounder I'd be fully confident in McGregor.
