Fans who were looking forward to ‘An Evening With Conor McGregor – Up Close And Personal’ at the 02 Arena in London on Saturday night have been left disappointed after the event was cancelled on short notice earlier this week.
No explanation has been given for why the show was scrapped, but those who had paid up to £1,110 for tickets to see the UFC superstar are believed to be getting a full refund.
Fans had been hoping to hear what McGregor plans to do next just days after Dana White had shot down rumors that the lightweight champion may have been planning to fight Nate Diaz at UFC 219 in late December.
However, McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh has indicaed that he’d still like to see that trilogy fight with Diaz take place next, although he had a different time frame in mind for it.
“If it was my choice, and I must stress that this is only my choice and that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen, it would be Nate Diaz in March,” Kavanagh told MMA Fighting on Wednesday. “That’s what I would push towards.
“I have in my head that it would be a Paddy’s Day card in New York, Nate Diaz 3. I think that would be absolutely amazing. That’s what I would wish for. That’s what I’ll be leaning towards with my 0.1 percent influence when I meet with Conor and Audie (Attar) tomorrow. I want Diaz 3, Paddy’s Day in New York.”
