The scores are now tied at one win apiece, and it makes for an incredibly interesting trilogy between the two men. However, it remains to be seen if the UFC gives ‘The Notorious’ a rematch against ‘The Diamond‘ right away. His coach, John Kavanagh, has stated that his pupil has his eyes set on a rematch. 

However, if the fight with Dustin does not work out, there are plenty of other options that ‘The Notorious’ could pursue. The likes of Nate Diaz, Michael Chandler, and Justin Gaethje among others are all viable options for Conor McGregor at this point in time.
