Filed under: Featured , Featured Videos , News , UFC , Videos LAS VEGAS – With some fight-camp changes, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor is confident his rematch with Nate Diaz will go much differently than the duo’s first meeting. Back in March at UFC 196, Diaz (19-10 MMA, 14-8 UFC) stepped in as a late replacement for then-lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, and McGregor (19-3 MMA, 7-1 UFC) then opted for the fight to take place at 170 pounds rather than 155. McGregor, the UFC’s reigning featherweight champion, suffered a second-round loss to Diaz , who took the bout on just 10 days’ notice. They meet again in Saturday’s UFC 202 pay-per-view headliner at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and McGregor, who’s a small favorite at the sports books, expects a different outcome the second time around
