    Interested to see the results of this (poll plz?). Who are you rooting for vs. who you think will win.

    Not sure I've ever been more on the fence about a fight than this one. I am not really a fan of either guy, and when RDA bowed out, I was leaning toward Nate in terms of preference. But with TMZ coming out and spewing that racism crap, I started to lean a little more toward Conor, especially when he told the guy to shut his fucking hole.

    As I'm sitting now:

    Preference: ????
    Prediction: Conor (barely).

    Rooting for Nate all the way.

    Leaning toward Conor winning, because of Nate literally having just a few DAYS to prepare for the fight.

    I love the Diaz bros. But Conor is a Diaz brother with a lot more about him, both in personality and fighting style. Aside from length and submission skills, Nate has nothing for Conor. Preference Conor, Prediction Conor

    Why do you need a prediction. It's already decided. Mystic Mac said done in 1. Left uppercut. Head clean removed.

    Preference is a back and fourth barburner. I wanna see conors endurance.

    Predicting head clean off after nate cops body shot after body shot.

    I dont have a preference. Both are warriors. But with short camp I don't see nate taking it. Not to mention conor is a striker and nate only thinks he is. Conor K/O rd 1 or 2 is my prediction. If it goes long I can see nate droping a sub on him though.

    Nate knows what is going on with this fight. Every time he's asked for his prediction he avoids an answer. He knows he's getting paid a million dollars to lose. He has virtually zero preparation. How almost 40% predicted Nate to win in the poll, I will never understand.

    I appreciate Conor's skills but not his mouth. I'm really interested in what a humble McGregor would be like to witness so I suppose I'm rooting for Diaz here.

    Conor by decision.

    Heart says Diaz, head says Conor.

    Man... could you imagine if Diaz won and did it like this?

    I am rooting for Conor, but mostly I just want to see a good fight. When I first heard the news I just thought im my head that Conor is gonna tear him apart, but the more I think about it the closer I think it will be. I predict Conor will end it in the 3rd round after some close couple rounds. I have a feeling Conor is gonna hurt him with a spinning back kick to the body, idk why but I think it'll happen. Maybe not finish him with one but I think Nate will end up eating a few of those.

    Preference: at least 3 rounds of a wild but technical fight where both guys show up and have to dig deep. Plus points for ground work and scary scrambles.

    Prediction: Conor TKO in the 3rd.

    I wish Nate had a whole camp but, whatever. Whether Nate spoils the Conor-show or Conor prevails and continues his mad dash for cash isn't very important to me.

    I hope they both just stop fighting at some point momentarily and flip each other off with both barrels. That would be a great gif.

    Preference:Conor wins

    Predictions: Conor is actually the aggressor but Nate throws volume backing up and lands some punches. Conor lands some body kicks and Nate stops with his volume. Conor throws clean and crisp shots that floor Diaz and ground and pound until Conor gets the TKO in the first or second. Oh and when Diaz hits the matt Joe Rogan will yell about how dangerous Nate still is and Conor needs to be careful. Star this post I am psychic
