Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor is a GO for UFC 196
There has been much speculation as to who will step in and fight Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 196 on March 5th.
While there has been no shortage of top contenders stepping up to offer to fight McGregor at the event, it seems as though we now have an official bout.
BJPenn.com has confirmed with sources close to the fighters that McGregor vs. Diaz will happen on March 5th in Las Vegas.
The weight class for the McGregor vs. Diaz bout is still yet to be confirmed. (Via BJPenn.Com- http://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/conor-mcgregor/nate-diaz-vs-conor-mcgregor-is-a-go-for-ufc-196/)
Is BJPenn.com still a legit source? Was it ever? F it. Whatever, lets Go! I’m excited we’re getting this fight now. As inconsistent as Diaz is he may have went out and got wrecked a couple fights in a row or suspended for weed and we never would have gotten the opportunity to see this. Get a microphone and television crew out to Stockton this minute and let the trash talk begin. Keep these guys away from eachother until the cage though. Probably best if all of the team at Cesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is forced into a pope-mobile whenever within 500 yards of Conor or else we’re just going to have a fight before the fight. The first time these two get within arms distance of one another should be inside the cage.
BTW- Love Tony Ferguson coming off the top rope. Hopefully he takes care of Khabib and gets his shot at that title next-
