McGregor’s new opponent named, but…

The UFC have just confirmed that Nate Diaz will replace Rafael dos Anjos as Conor McGregor’s opponent for UFC 196 on March 5th. However, due to the short notice it will not be at lightweight but instead welterweight.

This means McGregor moves up two weight classes to 170 from his previous featherweight title-winning match with Jose Aldo in December.

Here is Diaz talking about fighting McGregor previously.
