Diaz Steps Up To Face McGregor In Vegas

There was some compensation for Conor McGregor fans when it was announced that he would be fighting Brazilian Nate Diaz on March 5th and as suggested by his odds-on price, the Dubliner looks primed to record another win.

McGregor has been installed at 2/7 to defeat his new opponent after the withdrawal of Lightweight Champion Rafael Dos Anjos on Tuesday due to a broken foot.

The fight is no longer a title fight and McGregor will be moving up two weight divisions for the bout.

McGregor is odds on at 1/2 to win by KO, TKO or Disqualification with the fight not expected to go the full five rounds as suggested by the odds of 1/6.

He had been bidding to become the first dual-weight champion in the UFC after claiming the featherweight crown with victory over Jose Aldo last December.
