    They're appealing odds, but probably about right. Conor's ground instincts are to look for ways to escape, and better grapplers take advantage of his missteps.

    Nate Sub +210 vs. Nate KO +570, I see more value in the sub. Nate has Conor in peril and most of the time he's taking the neck whether it's a triangle or an RNC.

    If Conor stumbles instead of shooting, Nate likely winds up on top against a groggy but conscious McGregor. Still, not bad odds.

    I fully agree, to use just two examples, look at McGregor vs Mendes and Rockhold vs Weidman, both reffed by Herb Dean. Mendes was dropped with a big punch but not out and was coherently blocking the punches Conor was pouring onto him and Herb stopped it, not an awful stoppage but somewhat premature. Compare that to Rockhold vs Weidman wherein Herb stood and watched intently while Weidman ate punch after punch from mount for literally about 40 seconds non-stop and still didn't stop it.
