Yeah, about that triathlon…
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White had to sell mixed martial arts (MMA) fans a pay-per-view (PPV) main event featuring a fighter who was competing on just 11 days notice. But not to worry, said fighter was ready to go.
“Nate Diaz has been training for a triathlon,” White told LA Today roughly one week before the UFC 196 headliner in Las Vegas, Nevada. “Nate Diaz is in phenomenal shape right now, so he’s not coming in out of shape.”
Not that it mattered, since Diaz subbed McGregor in round two (watch it), regardless of preparation. That said, if triathlons include sailing the Cabo seas with a bottle of tequila, then fuck this blogging shit, I’m out of here.
