John Kav seemed pretty serious about a 4th round (he said late 4th) cumlative damage TKO.

Conor briefly so far I believe said 2nd round KO.

Lets get some predictions here on the MMA Forum. It is fight week!

I like tko 4 in Nate's favor, Conor will last longer, fight more conservative, if he can pull out a win ill be really impressed, but this seems like a bad style match up.

It is odd because his coach actually makes a point on how Nate is a good style for Conor to fight and beat.

I like Nate in the rematch. He showed he can take Conor's power and keep coming and I believe an early stoppage is Conor's best shot. The longer the fight goes, the more the momentum swings to Nate imo. On top of that, Nate just has more ways to win the fight than Conor does.

If you listen to Kav and Conor they will make you believe Conor now has sea level cain cardio. That they did everything wrong and this camp it is corrected. 18 weeks of great cardio training, scientific training. I like that they made a point to say this. They seemed real happy with their shape last fight going in but changed their minds after he lost. Nice to have it in stone on record this time.

If Conor has a crazy gas tank now it should be a hell of a fight that goes perhaps the distance or much longer than 1.80 rounds.

It's a good stylistic matchup as there is no wrestlefvckfest threat and Diaz is willing to trade where McGregor shines best. It's a bad stylistic matchup as Diaz has elite MMA-boxing (levelling out McGregor's skill advantage he had over other opponents) and a long reach and the additional distance to overcome with McGregors explosive aggressive in-and-out game is super taxing cardiowise (see Machida vs Jones).

Nate wins third round TKO. Nate has a full camp and will have over 20 pounds on Conor on fight night.

Nates not making it out of the second round. The boy is getting heavier and slower now that he got a decent paycheck, he's had to do all the media work, I reckon he is going to be actually worse then he was the first time, and Conor will be better.

The body will be worked more in the first round and the legs. The head will then get taken off in the second. Nate a bloody mess on the floor, and then Nick will cause some trouble for a scuffle outside the ring, and the next fight will be Conor vs Nick
