and does the left hand have the same devastating affect at this weight?

Nate is going to get a spinning back kick square in the chest after 10 seconds and take an awful beating. Hope there is at least some good smack talk before it starts!
Did you read what happened without the Helwani goggles.

First let me say I guve props to Conor more than you would think. He backs up his talk. But he didnt not care about weight.

Helwani will have the masses think Conor didnt care the weight yet here is the exact process he explained

1. Conor wanted 160lb weight

2. Nate said he cant get down there and said 165.

3. Nate held firm on 165

4. Conor then chose to say "tell him 170 get comfy" when he realized Diaz wqsnt budging. To get the last word as if he were a badass who did not care about the weight....because he would have just said 170 at the jump.

So props to Conor for being so active and knocking fools out. But dont get fooled on this one.

The kings terms? This was on 209s terms.

If you listen very close you can hear the faint sound of "wooo hooo" as Helwani swings joyfully from Conor's balls.

I assume he carries it up. I believe his knockout power has more to do with the accuracy and timing than anything

Shit, this is going to be awesome. Don't even care about the belts, who the hell knows what happens in this one.

McGregor is the real deal, nobody can really say anything after this. His method of not sparring way too hard but focusing intensely on body movement should keep him way more active than the other fighters destroying themselves in the gym (aka the missing Mexican Cain)

helwani swings from the testicles of everyone, he should get a fee for being a PR agent
If it is not thing kings terms, its the kings balls that have made this happen!

Jumping two weight classes in this day and age, is duke nukem balls of steel levels! I hope a few guys takr notice of this and man up a bit in the future. How am i supposed to ever book trips to vegas with fuc'ks pulling out of every second fight

I'm actually more excited now than I was for the title fight, I expect there to be some really good striking exchanges with King Mac coming out on top

Seems like a potential short night for Nate
But I could see the potential for Diaz getting to the ground, going for a sub.

why wouldn't he? he's clearly outclassed on the feet, if he has, even the slightest chance, it's on the ground.
