Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz go to battle in just over a week’s time at UFC 196.
While this fight is not what anyone was expecting as recently as last weekend, the UFC’s first official promo video should get the blood pumping ahead of what is still set to be a hugely entertaining fight.
McGregor has not appeared phased whatsoever by the late announcement concerning Rafael Dos Anjos’ foot injury, as evidenced by Dana White explaining how this rescheduled fight came about once word of Dos Anjos’ injury came to light.
White revealed Conor’s response earlier this week in an interview with Sports Illustrated:
“I will fight anybody, any time, any way.”
This kind of attitude means that we’re still in for a high energy fight between two of the best talkers, and walkers, in the sport.
We expected Dos Anjos to be the one featuring in promos such as this one at this stage, however from watching just some of the short clips below, you’ll soon realise that this fight can match our expectations.
Holly Holm and Miesha Tate also feature heavily in the video ahead of their massive bout, also on March 5th in Las Vegas.
