    I thought this was a hilarious analogy :D



    McGregor, the UFC's featherweight champion, compared Diaz to Homer Simpson in the "The Simpsons" episode where he begins boxing Friday at a gym day here in Vegas. Diaz, of course, beat McGregor by second-round submission after a war of a first eight minutes.


    "You ever see that episode of The Simpsons where Homer starts boxing?" McGregor said. "He's competing, he's just sitting in the ring and getting the head slapped off him. Boom, boom, boom. And then just the guy can't punch him no more. And then Homer tips him and the guy falls over. That was similar. That's the way Nate was in that fight. He was like Homer Simpson. He just took the shots until I couldn't hit him no more. He's gonna be no different this fight. He's gonna just take the shots and hope that I can't hit him no more. Only, I'm gonna be still there poking him in the face. So, I look forward to it."

    Conor landed five more shots in the first.

    Most of them leg kicks. Conor will lose the rematch because he hasnt accepted the first fight.

    Blah blah the same old shit, that's all this guy ever says anymore. It's everything he did wrong and nothing Nate did right. I'd like to think he won't be able to say anything about Nate after next weekend but I'm sure he will either way. He's like Chael except not funny.

    There is this huge misconception that Conor was completely dominating the fight or some shit

    He says it himself which isn't all that shocking he has always said things like this(saying he was dominating Mendes the whole fight). The fucked up part is there are media guys who repeat it like man if Conor can just do what he did in that first round....

    The first round of that fight was close, Conor might have won the round but he certainly didn't dominate it and never so much as wobbled Nate. If his best was being able to keep the fight close for a little over a round that doesn't say much about him as a top fighter

    Anything can happen, but there's little reason to think that the outcome is going to be much different. Conor's style is exactly what works FOR, not against, a guy like Diaz.

    The striking was pretty equal in the first, and Conor got taken down.
