When is it shown in Australia? Sunday March 6th @ 2PM AEDT

Billed as the Ultimate Fighting Championship‘s Money Fight, Irish super world champion Conor McGregor and hungry challenger Nate Diaz are facing off in UFC 196 in one of the most highly anticipated UFC fights in recent memory. Nate Diaz has finally got the fight he’s been waiting for. Featherweight champ McGregor and No. 6-ranked lightweight Diaz will clash at 170 pounds in UFC #196 on March 6th, broadcast to Australia live from Las Vegas and on Pay-Per-View networks across the world. Your local pub or club should be putting this fight on for free, if not, ask them to!

Diaz’ coach Richard Perez thinks that McGregor will be shocked by Diaz and Diaz will “make him [McGregor] look silly”. Whether or not you believe that, which I don’t, many fights are either won or lost in a fighters head long before the actual fighting even begins, you’ve got to give it to Diaz for having the only mindset that will allow him to take down the Irish champion. There’ll also be a lot of neutral MMA fans supporting Diaz, as McGregor isn’t the most liked man in the UFC.

My Betting Tips, Advice & Analysis of UFC 196

Conor McGregor is the undisputed champion of UFC in his weight division and the pound for pound champion in UFC right now – there’s no denying that. Nate Diaz is ranked 6th and is a hungry competitor with everything to gain by taking this fight. On the contrary, McGregor has already proven himself and has everything to lose, not that I think he will.

I don’t think Diaz, or anyone else can stop him at or around his preferred weight if McGregor gets his way, which he usually finds a way to do. That said, when you’re the champion you become the hunted and your every move is analyzed, memorized, dissected and plans are made on to counter your every move. I’m sure that Richard Perez has coached Diaz well for this fight, whether or not it will help is another thing entirely.

If Diaz can last past the second round, there’s a small chance that Diaz will be able to win by submission, the last time McGregor lost was by submission and he looked totally unprepared for how to handle the ground game. Maybe he’s improved since then, but if Diaz can get him on the ground without getting knocked out in the process, you will find some great value bets there.

That’s a very big if, but if you feel like betting against the rest of the market, Diaz to win by submission is paying $10 and Diaz to win in rounds 3, 4 or 5 is paying $13. Plenty to think about here, of course, you could just back McGregor to win in the first round which at odds of $3.50 for a first round KO from Ladrokes looks very tempting.

My tip: McGregor by KO/TKO in the 1st or 2nd round.
