2016 is quickly turning into the year that the UFC’s matchmaking department threw its hands into the air and said “you know what, screw it.” An immediate rematch for Cain Velasquez? Suuuure. Rousey vs. Tate III? Consider it done! Anderson Silva vs. Uriah Hall? WELL THEY’RE BOTH UNDER CONTRACT, AREN’T THEY?!
So in that regard, perhaps it makes sense that the UFC is now close to finalizing an immediate rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, at welterweight, in the main event of UFC 200.
I mean, sure, Diaz’s win over McGregor at UFC 196 feels so fresh in our minds that some MMA media outlets are still penning think pieces and technique breakdowns on it, and yeah, holding the fight at welterweight again feels like an odd choice considering that both guys are natural lightweights. And I guess if you’re a cynic, you could argue that a win for either Diaz or McGregor at 170 will be utterly pointless in terms of where it puts them in both the welterweight division or either of their respective decisions…
…boy, I really thought I was going to be able to turn that around. I guess I’ll just throw out remind everyone that cash rules everything around us and bugger off.
