‘Countdown to UFC 196: McGregor vs. Diaz’ (Video)

UFC Conor McGregor

Can’t wait for Saturday to watch Conor McGregor (pictured) and Nate Diaz throw down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas? Fox Sports 1 has just released “Countdown to UFC 196: McGregor vs. Diaz” to help tide you over.

The hour-long documentary follows McGregor as he prepares to return to the cage. The show’s producers were forced to work overtime when UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos was forced to withdraw from his scrap against McGregor at the 11th hour.

Delete dos Anjos’s footage, or save some of it for another day, and insert Diaz’s recent clips and interview. That’s showbiz, I guess.

Bantamweight champion Holly Holm and Miesha Tate are also featured in the show. The ladies co-headline Saturday’s pay-per-view broadcast.
