Conor McGregor remains focused on making his return to the Octagon in 2014 when the UFC heads to Ireland.
And, McGregor even has an opponent in mind: Diego Sanchez.
The two have had several Twitter exchanges in recent months, and that continued on Tuesday when Sanchez asked for an opponent.
“Man I need a fight!” he posted. “I’m pretty sure after Nate (Diaz) and Gray (Maynard) fight I’ll have a opponent. Want Diaz but it will prob be Gray.”
When asked about McGregor instead, Sanchez stated “because the point is to climb the ladder.”
The youngster from Ireland didn’t take to kindly, sending back a message of his own to Sanchez.
“Only reason you haven’t been cut 2 Bellator with the other has-beens is because you defend shots with your nose. 0-4,” he wrote.
