With Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor part 2 coming up at UFC 202 on Aug. 20, let’s take a look at this extended preview. Conor will look to redeem himself after getting submitted by late replacement Diaz on just 11 days notice back in March. Conor was originally set to challenge Rafael dos Anjos for the lightweight title, but the champ was forced to withdraw due to a foot injury. Nate filled in, the bout was contested at 170-pounds and the rest is history. Will Conor, the reigning 145-pound champ, be better prepared for the massive jump up in weight or will Nate really show the Irishman what’s up with a full training camp under his belt?
It’s interesting to note that oddsmakers have McGregor the favorite at -135, while Diaz is the underdog at +115. What are they seeing that will be different, or are they just trying to entice potential bettors?
