The UFC finally reliable what many already knew with a news that Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor will pretension UFC 200 on Jul 9 in Las Vegas. The dual fighters done story during UFC 196 in one of a company’s many successful events, selling around 1.5 million PPV buys and creation over $8 million on a gate, before Diaz put a hindrance to McGregor’s unbeaten run in a UFC by submitting a Irishman in a second round.
With Ronda Rousey’s lapse to a Octagon still unclear, Anderson Silva on a losing run and Georges St-Pierre now semi-retired, a vigour had been on a UFC to come adult with a superstar for this eventuality that lived adult to a hype. While primarily speak of a evident rematch didn’t go down well, generally during 170 pounds, the closer we get to UFC 200, a some-more this quarrel has begun to excite a fans. Having initial stepped adult in weight in sequence to quarrel lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, usually for a Brazilian to lift out with injury, McGregor’s desire to turn a two-division champion is clearly reduction critical than avenging his initial detriment in 6 years.
While McGregor was a organisation favourite during UFC 196 when these dual initial met, this quarrel appears to be seen as a many tighter event with a bookies, with both fighters priced during around $1.91 with a betting odds during a moment. Following dual rounds of movement in that McGregor started a strongest before being impressed by Diaz after in a fight, it looks as yet there are still a lot of punters and fans who feel a Irishman has what it takes to kick one of a UFC’s many gifted men.
Rather than lapse to his some-more healthy weight class of 145-pounds in sequence to urge his featherweight title, a 27-year old insisted on holding an evident rematch with Diaz, ignoring a recommendation of a UFC, his coaches and a vast infancy of MMA fans around a world. As has been a box with McGregor ever given his attainment in a UFC behind 3 years ago, it would be foolish to write off a male who has literally lived adult to all though one of a many promises he has done given ripping on a stage in Apr of 2013.
McGregor, who knocked out long-time featherweight champion Jose Aldo in only 13 seconds, is underneath reduction vigour to lapse to 145-pounds now that Aldo and Frankie Edgar will contest for a halt belt. But in annoy of what happens during UFC 200, McGregor will have to confirm either to continue his ramble around weight classes in hunt of a biggest fights, urge his featherweight pretension or try and secure that match-up opposite dos Anjos during 155 pounds.
If he can revenge his better to Diaz, all of those options will be accessible to him. Defeat, however, would take divided some of that implausible energy McGregor has built adult during his UFC career, restricting his options and creation it tough for him to collect and select his possess fights in a same approach he has been doing.
