Watch Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz UFC 196 Press Conference (Live Stream)

Conor McGregor, meet your new opponent.

McGregor will fight Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on March 5 in Las Vegas now that Rafael dos Anjos has pulled out of his scheduled lightweight championship bout with the Irishman due to a foot injury.

The new combatants will meet face to face for the first time Wednesday during a live press conference from the UFC Gym in Torrance, California. It should be interesting given McGregor’s knack for talking smack and Diaz’s unwillingness to back down from the featherweight champion.

The press conference is scheduled to kick off at 4 p.m. ET. Watch it below.
