The 353 and the 209 will be invading the 310 today. In non-area code terms, Conor McGregor (pictured) and Nate Diaz will be hosting a UFC 196 pre-fight press conference Wednesday at the UFC Gym in Torrance, CA.

Today’s festivities are free and open to the public.
The press conference comes less than 24 hours after Diaz agreed to fight McGregor on 11 days’ notice. McGregor was initially slated to challenge lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in the March 5 event, but dos Anjos broke his foot and was forced to pull out at the 11th hour.
Diaz and McGregor will now headline the festivities in a welterweight affair. McGregor captured the featherweight title at UFC 194, so he’ll be jumping two weight classes, 25 pounds, in just three months.
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts UFC 196.
