Nate Diaz claims the UFC "better hope" he doesn't beat Conor McGregor for a second time in a row.

The American defeated the UFC featherweight champion in March's welterweight bout at UFC196 with the result causing a stir, although the previously unbeaten McGregor had jumped two weight classes to fight at 170lb.

In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Diaz claimed he messed up "everyone's plan by winning [the original] fight".

And he added that the UFC "better hope I don't win this fight because it's going to be a lot of trouble for everybody, in terms of the business. This one coming up, they better hope I don't win this one because the game is going to change.

"It already has."

McGregor will fight Diaz again at UFC 202 on August 20th.
