McGregor opens as -170 ‘chalk’ for trilogy fight with Diaz

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz are even. Well, at least in terms of the 1-1 record against each other.
After back-to-back wars, especially Saturday’s epic UFC 202 thriller, they aren’t going to fight each other again in the near future.
Make no mistake, though, they’ll fight for a third time to complete what might go down as MMA’s greatest trilogy ever. Though this bout probably won’t take place for a year or two, you can bet on it right this second.
BetOnline opened McGregor as a -170 favorite on Sunday, leaving Diaz as the +145 underdog. Unlike the first two fights, the next one will take place at 155 pounds. The odds haven’t changed in the 48 hours since they were posted.
Let’s just hope Diaz doesn’t get suspended or lose any of his $2 million purse for hitting his vape pen during post-fight interviews (see below).
