Conor McGregor is a featherweight champion fighting a lightweight at the welterweight limit at UFC 196 .When McGregor meets Nate Diaz at the MGM Grand Garden Arena Saturday, the Irish brawler is taking on a challenge that would seem impractical, dangerous or downright ridiculous to most athletes in weight-dependent sports.McGregor (19-2) is in this unlikely situation because lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos dropped out of their scheduled meeting with a foot injury less than two weeks ago. A disappointed McGregor slammed Dos Anjos for his caution, which prevented McGregor from attempting to add that 155-pound belt to the 145-pound strap he won in December by stopping long-reigning champ Jose Aldo in 13 thrilling seconds.McGregor slapped it away, forcing UFC President Dana White to step between them.It was just another day in show business for McGregor.
