Tuesday evening UFC President Dana White revealed on SportsCenter that Nate Diaz would be filling in for Rafael dos Anjos in the main event of UFCC 196 on March 5th.

As everyone knows by now, dos Anjos had pulled out of the fight with a broken foot, forcing the UFC to scramble to find a new opponent for McGregor on less than 2 weeks notice.

Following the announcement of Diaz filling in, McGregor posted several clips to his Instagram of himself training. One of which contained the caption

“God bless this hard work. I don’t care about weight divisions. I told them four months I’ll run through everyone on the roster.
11 days out. #UFC196”
