Although UFC 196 will no longer determine whether Conor McGregor can become a two division champ, the card still has a ton of buzz behind it. Why’s that? Because although Rafael dos Anjos has gone down with a broken foot, McGregor will now take on Nate Diaz. A man, who just like McGregor, has never been known to shy away from a battle.
It’s an intriguing bout on many levels, as McGregor is moving up to 170 pounds to face Diaz. His last fight, as you know, took place at 145 when he KO’d Jose Aldo to become champ. Diaz, meanwhile, is coming off a very impressive UD win over Michael Johnson.
The “Countdown” episode for the fight has gone up, and you check it out below.
