    You either need reach (to kick and stay far away aka Condit)

    or a good takedown offense to make Nate hesitate from checking your kicks.

    Yes it is, too bad Conor's leg kicks suck.

    I don't get why fighters even have coaches, they should just come to internet forums.

    I would love to see Nate get hit with some Jose Aldo leg kicks.

    Not as simple as leg kicks, as simple as head kicks.

    Too bad Conor doesn't have leg kicks or takedowns.

    I feel obliged to tell you that you have not spoken the truth.
    Took down Holloway plenty of times.

    Holloway used to be easier to take down than a freshman on prom night though.

    why would nate want to win here? rubber match and then retire. nate has no incentive at all to fight. he might play stupid but the diaz bros about their money

    I wouldn't go that far ... but listen, it's easy.
    All McGregor wants to do is set up his punches.
    They are obviously his best weapon. He uses his legs to keep people at distance, to come in with punches when he decides to. Side kicks to the leg type of stuff.
    Wouldn't be so sure that his leg kicks/TDs are weak, just because we haven't seen a lot of 'em.

    I agree, he uses his legs as a distraction more than a threatening weapon.

    Conor's striking got to where he is. Nate schools him on the ground.
