    It will look a lot like Conor vs. Holloway.

    While I think he will outclass Nate for five rounds, I don't think he'll be able to finish him. Nate might not be the smartest fighter out there but he is tough and will keep coming.

    That is certainly possible.

    I think the biggest difference here may be in timing and accuracy, due to Nate having almost zero training / sparring time.

    If it doesn't look like Conor vs Holloway or it is a easy KO, Conor will get shit for it.

    If he's not dominant he deserves to get shit for it.

    I doubt it. There will be a point in the fight when Nate will gas and he is gonna be a sitting duck. It's gonna get ugly folks.

    I doubt McGregor could dominate Nate on one leg.

    This is what I think

    1rd tops for Nate then he starts to get picked apart as his conditioning goes out.

    Hoping Nate to somehow get it to the ground to at least make it exciting.

    This is my most anticipated fight of the year. That being said, I honestly have no idea how this matchup will go. I'm a huge Conor fan, but Nate has shown that he can be a real problem for anybody when he's motivated. Nate's has it in him to be a champion imo. He just mentally can't get out of his own way.

    Nates only chance at all is within the first 2 rounds. if he cant finish it by then, i'm guess he's gassed and gets TKO'd.

    I doubt a half-fit Nate makes the final bell. Josh Thomson KO'd him using a smart striking gameplan. Conor can do similar.
