Nate Diaz had a lot to celebrate after his win over Conor McGregor in March and now he'll try to do it all over again when he rematches the current featherweight champion at UFC 200 in July.
Diaz accepted the fight with McGregor on less than two weeks notice and proceeded to pull off a second round rear naked choke victory to silence the outspoken Irishman after a ton of trash talk exchanged between the two of them ahead of the card.
With a win at UFC 196, rumors abounded that McGregor was possibly in line for a welterweight title shot against champion Robbie Lawler. Obviously, Diaz smashed that idea into a million pieces, but he actually thinks the UFC had a different idea in mind for McGregor's next fight.

Diaz believes former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who was in attendance at UFC 196, was there to challenge McGregor if he came away victorious.
"I put a big old halt on that (expletive)," Diaz said when speaking to Chael Sonnen recently. "Like what are you guys thinking that I'm some (expletive) game to be played with? I've been in this game for too long to (expletive) with.
"Yeah, they had GSP there, they wanted to have this whole GSP/McGregor show bull (expletive). I don't even want to hear that (expletive)."
There's no actual confirmation that St-Pierre is even planning to return to the UFC much less for a fight against someone like McGregor, but Diaz says he saw the sign as soon as the former welterweight champion made his way into the arena.
Considering St-Pierre was one of the biggest draws in the sport when he was competing and McGregor is the current cash cow for the UFC, a bout between the two of them could pull in some massive interest for pay-per-view.
Diaz never liked the idea to begin with and now they don't have to worry about it because he beat McGregor and now he's going to cash in on another big payday to give him a rematch at UFC 200.
"GSP's going to come out of retirement to fight this little ass Conor McGregor? What the (expletive)? This is all just a freak show now. Now what did I do? I pissed off Conor McGregor, I pissed off GSP and most of all I pissed off the UFC but LOL mother (expletive)," Diaz said.
"I wanted to be the first one to speak up -- you're a (expletive) bully. You know you're going to hold that little ass Irishman down. You're going to hop in and take this money fight like 'I'm coming back for this' like what the (expletive). Get your ass up to your weight class and Conor McGregor's out of line, too, trying to fight big ass people."
It's clear Diaz relishes the role of spoiler and he plans on doing the same thing again when he faces McGregor on July 9 in Las Vegas.
"Get the (expletive) out here mother (expletive). I spoiled your (expletive)," Diaz said. "That's what you get (expletive) for (expletive) coming in and trying to steal the show, trying to make this about you. I spoiled everybody's day."
