Nate Diaz and Justin Gaethje are the 2 frontrunners to fight Conor McGregor in the summer

Get the Full StoryConor McGregor's next UFC fight could be against power-striker Justin Gaethje or old rival Nate Diaz, according to ESPN.

McGregor ended a three-year winless run when he defeated Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds in Las Vegas last month.

After the fight, the UFC president Dana White told the media that a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov could be made next.

Nurmagomedov defends his UFC lightweight title against Tony Ferguson in April but if one of the pair withdraws from the event, McGregor will replace them and fight for the title in their place.

Should that event go ahead as planned, McGregor could instead fight Gaethje or Diaz by the summer.
