Nate Diaz shocked the mixed martial arts planet earlier this month after he handed UFC golden boy Conor McGregor his initial loss inside the Octagon. Diaz had stepped as an injury replacement for UFC lightweight winner Rafael dos Anjos on 11 days’ notice. Before the reduction, McGregor had shot the UFC by storm, winning his first seven bouts, making six knockouts from the process including an incredibly 13 instant victory over then-champion Jose Aldo last December to capture the featherweight belt. Diaz, on the other hand, was the winner of The Ultimate Fighter season five and had experienced an up-and-down UFC profession, earning a title shot at 2012, but failing to get to the surface of the advertising. The victory over McGregor made him a leading contender once more. MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas had this to say about the rematch:
Having a rumored Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz rematch from the functions for UFC 200, the chances are going to be drastically different this time around. Diaz shot McGregor’s best shots within their UFC 196 major event, weathering the early storm before hurting McGregor and completing him through entry in the second. Diaz took the original battle on 11 days’ notice while McGregor was initially likely to compete 15 pounds lighter to its UFC lightweight title. Having a full training camp to prepare, both fighters will probably be familiar with each other and we could anticipate a more disciplined human chess game. Diaz’s confidence will be greater today, but McGregor also knows he was doing serious harm in the first round before slowing down. All that apart, McGregor is still the hottest male fighter on the roster and he must have tons of support in the betting public. If the bout occurs at welterweight (170 pounds ), McGregor are the -155 favorite with the comeback on Diaz being +125. If the bout instead takes place in lightweight, McGregor will be a -170 betting favored with Diaz coming in as a +140 underdog.
