Conor McGregor Will Move Up Two Weight Classes To Fight Nate Diaz At UFC 196

Nate Diaz will meet Conor McGregor on March 5th after Rafael Dos Anjos had to pull out of his UFC 196 title bout with a broken foot. Conor will be moving up from 145 to fight Diaz at 170 because Diaz was unable to cut to 160 pound catch weight in such short notice.

Last month, Diaz openly called out McGregor in a profanity filled tirade at UFC On Fox 17.

Conor quickly responded to Diaz the day after being called out by telling him he needed to get on his knees and beg him if he wanted a fight with him.

But now with McGregor desperately looking for a new opponent to fight him at UFC 196, Diaz has turned the tables on the UFC featherweight champ.

Thankfully the UFC listened to the fans and these two will indeed end up fighting in two weeks.
