170? Jesus. At that weight who knows what happens. That's a whole weight division above 155, that's two divisions above where he normally fights. This should be interesting.

No. Who would want 3 rounds?

I'm done talking about Conor McGregor in realistic terms.

Here was me going back and forth with you about weights, Helwani posted:-

Nate Diaz was always the top choice here but getting below 165 on such short notice was one issue. They came back with 160 pounds but that was going to be an issue too so Diaz stood firm at 165 pounds. In the end, the weight or opponent never mattered to McGregor. That's the truth. "Make it 170," he says. "Tell him to get comfortable."

So I'm there saying it's ridiculous to expect Conor to fight 20lbs about his typical weight class instead of 10....and Conor basically says "Naaaah let's make it 25, fk you Clyde".

Awesome fight though. Not history making but awesome. Maybe history making? Has anyone, even including Hendo, ever jumped an entire weight class like this? If Conor wins at 170, this ACTUALLY opens up Lawler....and GSP!!!!!!! How fking insane is that? It's not like Nate Diaz has never fought at Welterweight before, it would be a pretty credible win at 170.

I actually worry about his next weight cut down. That's a shit load of weight to peel off. He's looking bulkier. How's he going to bounce back n forth fighting at an optimal level. I actually looked at the charts and Conor was pretty much the same size as RDA...

Now it's at 170...haha. Man...this is the most taunting we're going to see in a fight.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Conor is a crazy dude. Got to love his mentality, the guy just wants to get in the cage and do his thing, regardless of weight or whatever. He's now fighting 2 weights above where he normally fights, and 1 weight above where he's been training to fight. This is after his opponent pulled out 11 days before the fight. Anyone else would have called the fight off entirely.

A completely different type of opponent, different body type, different skill set, a cardio machine and a guy who looked as good as he's ever looked in his last fight. This is a tough fight for anyone, and he's doing it on 11 days notice two weights above normal.

I have no idea who will win this to be honest, so many variables with the weight and all that. I mean he pulled this off against Mendes, but that was back at 145... it's just different.

Love this match up, Nate has the height and reach advantage over Connor something he hasn't had to deal with before, plus Nate knows how to use that reach with his beautiful straight 1 2's I think Connors diverse kicking game could be the difference maker though
