UFC president Dana White has ruled out the possibility of a third fight between Irishman Conor McGregor and American Nate Diaz, stating that he is 'moving on'.

Despite the success of the pair's second fight at UFC 202 and interest expressed from both fighters for a decider, White has reassured fans that no further contest will be coming any time soon.

"The war was super successful, but I'm moving on," White told UFC Ultimate Insider. "We're definitely not doing a third time right now."

Diaz handed McGregor his first UFC loss after their first contest in March, and McGregor settled the score with a decision victory last Sunday (NZT).
