Conor McGregor has opened up as a huge betting favourite over new opponent Nate Diaz for their UFC 196 main event.

McGregor opened as a near four-to-one (-370) favourite over Diaz (+260) in their welterweight tilt per 5Dimes.

Rafael dos Anjos pulled out of his and McGregor’s lightweight title fight on Tuesday morning and was replaced by Nate Diaz as announced by Dana White on SportsCenter late last night.

RDA broke his foot during his final sparring session. This is the fourth time that McGregor has had his original opponent pull out of the scheduled bout.

UFC 196: McGregor vs. Diaz will be held on March 5, 2016 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
