Conor McGregor wants to fight Nate Diaz in Dana White’s Power Slap League

Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor says that the new sport of power slapping is growing on him, so much so that he would like to compete against Nate Diaz in Dana White’s newly launch Power Slap League.

“This power slap championships is growing on me. Who doesn’t like watching good quality clatters hahaha,” McGregor wrote on Twitter.

White revealed during the UFC 281 fight week that an eight-episode deal is in place for Power Slap to air on TBS beginning in January. Last month the new league gained acceptance from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

McGregor continued the discussion by asking questions about the sport’s rulings.

“Is it a flip of a coin who gets to go first? How long do they have to recover before they get to throw their counter? Or is it over if they’re ko’d? Fascinating. I’m attending one of these 100%. Is this Dana’s ? Wtf is this madness Dana hahaha. I’m in.”

McGregor even suggested this his highly anticipated trilogy bout against now free agent Nate Diaz take place in Dana White’s Power Slap League.

“Me Vs Nate on it for the title hahahaha maybe that’s a title you’d have a better chance of coming close to winning Nate you little slapper hahahaha,” he wrote.

McGregor and Diaz each have a win over one another in mixed martial arts.
