Eddie Alvarez wants winner of Diaz-McGregor 2



It's no secret that Eddie Alvarez and Nate Diaz don't get along. The new lightweight champion beat Diaz's good friend and teammate Gilbert Melendez in 2015 and Diaz was quick to ask for a fight with Alvarez afterwards, saying he didn't feel he beat Melendez.

If Diaz takes out McGregor at UFC 202 he may get his wish.
