Almost 5 months on, can we agree that Nayt Diaz's win over McGregor is the biggest upset in MMA?

    There will be a few keyboard experts on here who will always say they knew he would win but realistically it is the biggest upset in MMA history. although Nayt is a good fighter he has never been anything more than 'good' whereas he faced and still does face one of the best fighters and knock out artists in MMA history. It's easy to see why the bookies still favour McGregor when you consider this and the fact that McGregor will have better cardio this fight.

    Are there any bigger upsets?

    Yes. Like a hundred. Holly over Ronda was bigger by far.

    Lots of ppl picked Nate to win.

    Serra over GSP
    Sokodju over Lil Nog

    Are going to be hard to beat as far as mma upsets

    Holly over RR and Gonzaga over CC up there as well

    There have been plenty of crazy upsets

    Scott Smith vs. Cung Le
    Tito vs Ryan Bader
    Bisping vs. Rockhold

    This seems to be the year of the upset, though

    Why will Conor have better cardio this fight? He had a full, proper camp in the last one.

    I cant post anything without being called a troll. This is my belief. I have never seen such a reaction to a loss. only Ronda Holly might surpass it. GSP losses were big and probably technically bigger lose than conor however conor has much more fans and haters so the reaction was much more

    It wasnt even an upset. Mcgregor has no business at 170 hes a fucking tiny leprauchaun, he will never win a fight at 170

    It's not in the top 100 biggest upsets in MMA history.

    Far from the biggest, Serra-GSP, but certainly my favorite upset.
