It's the rematch we all want to see.

And it's the rematch that the fighting Irishman wants as well, after he was humbled by Diaz at the recent UFC 196 event in Las Vegas.

McGregor recently revealed to TMZ in Beverly Hills over the weekend that he believed he was beating Diaz before submitting to his rear naked choke hold in the second round, and McGregor wants to earn redemption.

"I think I'd like to see that, yeah. It's one that interests me most certainly. When I look at the fight, I was winning the fight. I won the first round and a half, I feel. I'd love to get that one back," McGregor said.
