I love building bridges and I know that over the years you have relied on me to share news abut nuestra cultura, educational opportunities and in the last few years… even brands I discover. [Disclosure] I have partnered with Frontier Communications to introduce them to you as a new option for your digital communications needs including Internet, TV and /or Voice including FiOS®. All opinions are my own.
Let me preface this by saying I blame my buddy Eric for putting me on to the UFC and I cannot wait until they start fighting in NYC.
There exists a bit of tension between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor, making for the most anticipated non-title fight (rematch) of the year. Now I have read many headlines and this pre fight hype has me going back to “research” the genesis of this rivalry. So here is what I know so far as a fairly new UFC fan.
- The first encounter was at UFC 196 in March of 2016
- Diaz accepted the fight on short notice and won in a second round submission.
- Their media events have extra security due to a lot of pre fight tension due to McGregor punching Diaz fist during a prefight stare down.
- McGregor insisted they fight under the same rules even though he is fighting 25lbs over his normal weight
- Their fighting is happening on social media as well… with Nate Diaz accusing McGregor of “jacking his bad boy style”
- The tension is higher than ever as they indulged in a cursing match and Diaz threw a water bottle at McGregor resulting in a water bottle melee.
So to sum it up McGregor wants revenge (but did not want to risk his belt), Diaz wants to humiliate him and dethrone him from his super bad boy throne. If Diaz wins, this will likely set him up for a bigger payday as well as a title fight.
Now that I am all caught up… I am looking forward to checking out the fight this Saturday night.
