Last week when it was announced that UFC lightweight Rafael dos Anjos had broken his foot and had to pull out of his fight with UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor, the MMA world went crazy.

While many fighters were hoping to get a chance to dethrone McGregor, it was ultimately Nate Diaz who was selected by the UFC as a late replacement opponent for McGregor. To add another twist to the anticipation of the last-minute fight, McGregor accepted to fight another weight class up at welterweight above his originally scheduled lightweight bout with dos Anjos.

Check out what BJ Penn says Nate Diaz must do to beat Conor McGregor in the exclusive video above.
