Nate Diaz has pressure, a decent chin, good throws and most of all is a Gracie blackbelt who actually uses it.Conor has not fought someone with Nate's BJJ. Remember the Jim Miller fight?

I could see Nate trying to pull guard and landing a submission.

Plus, Conor has had nice things to say about Diaz in the past. I could also see Conor getting the TKO and bringing the Diaz Bros to Dublin for training or just hanging out with them after their inevitable brewhaha over the buildup and fight is over with.

Diaz isn't going to get close enough to McGregor to pull guard. That Diaz striking isn't going to have any effect either. I think stylistically this is a fantastic fight for Conor. Can see it ending by TKO in the 2nd.

Gotta admit, McGregor has some balls facing a guy at 170 on short notice.

Even if it is Nate Diaz, although, the guy looked pretty good against Michael Johnson.

As long as it stays on the feet we're in for a war, two iron chinned punchers, although, I'm curious how McGregor's power will translate too WW.

So what happened to your conclusion of McGregor *****ing out of fighting Nate at a catchweight? Now he's fighting him at WW, where he should be fighting Robbie Lawler.

If you're not willing to die for it remove the word freedom from your vocabulary.

I believe the only thing McGregor needs to watch out for is the 50-50 guard position if it gets there. Diaz is crafty enough to get a leg submission. Otherwise I think we're going to see Conor batter Diaz with leg kicks, teeps to the gut although I don't think it'll be as effective as it was against Mendez, and then I see them exchanging while taunting each other non-stop. This will be the first time Conor will not have a reach advantage to my knowledge.

Major props to Conor for once again being ready to do battle. How many champions and fighters have decided to postpone the fight altogether.

Also Conor is fighting at Nate Diaz' natural weight class. That's like saying GSP fighting against Daniel Cormier. Flip side is we may see even MORE POWER from Conor. His guns looked a lot bigger. Conor by TKO in the 3rd.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Conor's power comes from his timing, his precision and his speed. None of those things will be gone at WW. If anything, he's going to be even more deadly.
