What happens when a match is hyped up to complete capacity? We start discussing “flinching.” That’s what happens.
It’s Conor McGregor, that’s why.
The UFC Featherweight Champion of the world is a dream come true for Dana White. Every move, every time he opens his mouth, every facial expression is analyzed to such a point that every match he’s involved in brings a media machine along with it.
His Featherweight Championship bout at UFC 196 against Nate Diaz tonight is no exception.
Though the build-up has already been classic, the last time these two will go eye-to-eye before squaring off Saturday night came on Friday night at the weight-ins. Check it out above, as Diaz forced McGregor to flinch just a bit too much for his liking.

Tonight will resolve everything.
