Originally scheduled to face Rafael dos Anjos for the lightweight title, McGregor was disappointed again when a broken foot pulled the champion and his belt from the UFC 196 fight card.
That's not to say that Holm and Tate don't have the juice to headline a pay-per-view event. This will be Holm's first title defense since her stunning knockout victory over Ronda Rousey in November. Let's take a look at how Conor McGregor could lose to Nate Diaz.
That still appears to be on the table, but it seems McGregor's second piece of jewelry could be at welterweight instead of lightweight.
Despite the fact that UFC 196 will take place an ocean and various time zones away, it is still a highly anticipated event that fighters can not help but discuss. That means per exchange, McGregor should land more shots.
As for McGregor's request to fight Lawler after his bout with Diaz, UFC president Dana White said that he would be open to the idea, saying, "Conor is tough to deny these days". It would be nice to make that fight if the fans were interested and wanted to see it. In the meantime, "Notorious" will have to focus as he jumps up to two weight classes to make his debut at 170 lbs. "They say he talk a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant".
O'Brien hilariously got them to show another angle in slow motion that showed the sheer terror on his face as McGregor's foot swung around towards his head.
Fox's Megyn Kelly, Donald Trump largely civil in debate
Telecast live from the FOX Theatre in downtown Detroit, the debate ranks as the fourth-highest primary debate in history. Trump has advocated a complete ban on immigration to the U.S.by Muslims. "You know what?" Trump said.
A McGregor fight is THE money fight in MMA, and there was no shortage of willing applicants hopeful to win the McGregor (19-2) lottery.
"- "(Conor and Diaz) are flipping each other off under the table and Holly and I are making each other friendship bracelets"- Tate on respect for Holm.
'I'm a lion in there and I'm going to eat you alive.
The dos Anjos injury has no doubt removed some of the luster from what was set to be a historic card, but Diaz does present some interesting challenges for McGregor.
McGregor's arsenal has picked apart opponents who have tried to flee his range, and Diaz likely won't fall prey to that.
