UFC Champion Conor McGregor was set to face Rafael Dos Anjos for his lightweight title next weekend on UFC 196. Dos Anjos pulled out of the fight last night due to a foot injury. The first name that apparently came up in the UFC board room was Nate Diaz, then Donald Cerrone. According to UFC on Fox Reporter Ariel Helwani they are talking with Diaz to see if he can be ready in time for a bout at 170 pounds.
@arielhelwani what do you think about a potential Nate Diaz vs Conor McGregor match up? Would be quite intriguing
