IS DIEGO SANCHEZ NEXT FOR CONOR MCGREGOR?
Following Diego Sanchez’ disqualification victory at UFC Fight Night 167, Conor Mcgregor Tweeted out a teaser for their potential match up. He deleted the Tweet later, but seeing as how he is the official UFC matchmaker, the fight seems like a done deal.

Conor McGregor is a promoter, and senses the opportunity for a major showcase fight in Ireland with no downside. Diego is a legend, and the UFC marketing machine will surely find a way to sell the fight to the general public, and probably even convince a minority of casuals that he actually has a chance.
It’s an easy fight against an aging fighter lacking knockout power. The fight will take place at welterweight, allowing McGregor another payday without having to cut weight or compete against elite competition. One step closer to Khabib, and yet another massive payday for Mystic Mac. It’s brilliant match making on his part, and also a win for Diego.
Everyone knows it’s hard to make money in this sport, and Diego is nearing the end of his career. This is the final event in the Ultimate Fighting game show, the cash grab! Put on the red panties, take your beating, and cash out. It may not be the fairy tale ending Diego dreamed of, but it’s the one he deserves. An all expenses paid trip to Ireland, a large sum of cash, and a custom Conor McGregor sunset to walk off into.
