The MMA world was thrown into confusion earlier this week when it was announced that Rafael dos Anjos had broken his foot and would be unable to fight Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 196 on March 5th. Ultimately the UFC selected Nate Diaz as a replacement opponent for McGregor, and the bout was moved to welterweight.

There are many questions surrounding the bout regarding how McGregor will handle a taller opponent, and whether or not Diaz will have time to get in shape. It is important to mention however that UFC President Dana White revealed that Diaz was training for a triathlon at the time he accepted the fight.
