Diaz and McGregor to settle 3rd fight with rock-paper-scissors match

Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

If you did not watch UFC 202 last night, you missed out on a great fight. Conor McGregor was able to edge out Nate Diaz via a majority decision. This was a rematch of a UFC 196 back in March, where Diaz was able to hand McGregor his first loss by beating him in 2 rounds. Although McGregor was able to come away with the victory in the rematch, Diaz felt that he should have won. After the match Diaz told reporters, "All I know is it's 1-1. Regroup. We'll do it again, this time at 155 pounds. I came up to 170, faced the bigger man and overcame my adversity. Now you want this trilogy, it happens on my terms. Come back down to 155. We'll do it."

This great fight has left many wondering when the 3rd and final match will be and it appears that we have finally gotten that answer. UFC President Dana White has come out today and told reporters that there will be a 3rd fight between Diaz and McGregor, but there will be a twist. "To make this fight fair for both sides, we will be having a Rock-Paper-Scissors match" White said. Rock-Paper-Scissors has been known to settle some of the most famous arguments in household history, including who should empty the dishwasher, take out the trash, or clean up the dishes after dinner. There have been no reports on how much experience either side has with rock-paper-scissors, but is expected to be a good match."Rock-Paper-Scissors could be the future of out sport" White said. "The mental toughness required to win a game of rock-paper-scissors is like no other."

White has not given any information on the format of the rock-paper-scissors match, but reporters were able to catch up with McGregor to ask him about the fight. McGregor told reporters, "in all of my days, I don't think I've ever lost a game of rock-paper-scissors." "I just downloaded the app on my Iphone, so you bet I am going to be practicing." Diaz has not commented since the 3rd fight was announced, but close friends told reporters that he has been only doing bicep curls in the gym to prepare.

Get ready for a fight for the ages.
