Nate Diaz: I might get murked by Conor McGregor at UFC 196, but I don't care

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a couple of days away from its Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz welterweight pay-per-view (PPV) main event, taking place on Sat., March 5, 2016 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And since this fight was cobbled together less than two weeks ago, Diaz wasn't afforded the luxury of a full training camp. That means he might get "murked" when the cage door closes this weekend in "Sin City," according to his conversation with TMZ.

"It would have been nice to get a camp. It's all good, whatever. I've went to camps, trained hard and fought like shit. Three weeks later, after eating as much as I want, hanging out, not doing nothing, came in and whooped everybody's ass in the gym anyway. So we'll see what happens. I think you should beat everybody on your worst day, but you can never be ready enough for a fight anyway. Might get murked. Don't care, though. It's all good. Or he might."

When Rafael dos Anjos got hurt, Diaz was handpicked by the Irishman (because of this).

McGregor is no stranger to the 155-pound division, and while their contest is at 170 pounds, Diaz is a natural lightweight. The Stockton slugger does hold a noticeable size and reach advantage (see it), but apparently not enough to worry the "Notorious" champ.
