    Owen Roddy knows Conor's body better than almost anyone else on the planet whose name doesn't rhyme with Bee Bevlin. The 16-year veteran of John Kavanagh's SBG team and Conor's striking coach Roddy said not long before the first fight with Nate:

    "Conor would love to [fight Robbie Lawler]. Conor walks around 177lbs and he'd still be cutting a bit at WW." --- LINK

    So what say ye Sherdog, do you expect Conorbless to be bigger, smaller or the same for the rematch?

    (For the record, Gil Melendez told MMA Junkie Radio a couple of days before the fight Nate would be cutting from 178.)


    UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE

    On Ariel's show this week (20th June 2017):

    "Conor's mid-'70s right now, a little bit over '75 ... so he's good, that's easy for Conor, he's been A LOT HEAVIER BEFORE 6 weeks out from a fight."

    How anyone on SD can really know, though?

    I would say he stays about the same, because between all that training and media, changing his weight would only be additional hassle?

    So that would mean he added on nine pounds after weigh ins...?

    He looked full at 168 lbs. Like he didn't cut weight at all. Why would he cut 3 extra pounds anyway?

    When you're used to cutting 23-25 lbs, 9 lbs is nothing.

    For those accustomed to large weight cuts the first 13-15 fall off almost by accident. It's the 20th, 21st, 22nd that'll kill ya.

    Diaz weighed 169. Why would he cut an extra 2 pounds?

    If you watch 196 weigh-ins after the staredown he immediately gets a bottle and starts drinking and keeps it with him. I'm not saying he did cut for sure, but certainly I noticed that.

    Cutting the first pounds isn't that hard and when you stop you still dehydrate a little bit (say one exits the sauna at 170 they will still lose a bit of weight). It's the final part of the process that may get brutal and you start to look drained.

    According to his nutmunchers, Conor wakes up and walks around at 149 ( Easy natural bantamweight ) and Nate is fucking 250 LBS and HUGE and STRONG AS FUCK.

    I've been saying over and over in the past that Conor was around 176-177 lbs on fight Nate for Diaz.

    We have his own coaches that tell us he is around 165 lbs on fight night for his FW fights. Including Conor on camera telling us he is 170.. we have stories from others to like Chael and Fighter and the Kid podcast where it was said he was in the high 170's 10 days out from the fight... heck you even have the video before the scale where is all sweaty and his shirt his messed up to plus he went for that water bottle fast.. you don't do that if you don't cut a bit of weight.. heck he is used to doing 25+ lbs so a 6-8 lbs cut it's nothing to him.

    Now if you listen to him he says he is going in lighter for this fight. Again if you listen to him he says Nate is 200 lbs o_O and he is 20 lbs lighter so is he 180 lbs ? or just talking bs.

    Doesn't matter really the Diaz bros do not use the lbs advantage like other fighters do, they aren't psychical at all, they do not clinch you up or wrestle fuck you using the extra lbs and more strength then their opponents.. so it's all just for hype and possible excuses.

    PS: Wasn't Conor the guy always telling us size doesn't matter that much ? or how he is this big strong man and all of them are midgets with no power ? didn't he even pick on RDA telling all of us he is the bigger man in that press conference.. no so cool when Nate is the one with the few lbs advantage eh.

    Ozdrarlier, mate!
    Am I the only one who doesn't care what weight he's at now? Or what weight he will be 24 hours out from the the fight? or what his and Diaz's re-hydration weight is come fight night?

    This is what we know: Conor was prepared for a 155 fight when he was facing RDS, then two weeks out the Diaz fight was trying to be arranged due to RDS's injury, UFC wouldn't give Diaz the extra coin he wanted for cutting to 155 on short notice, so Conor said, " fuck it, weight doesn't matter, let's do it at 170."

    He loses to a tough Diaz who was straight off a holiday 11 days before. We all know why this fight is at 170 again. Conor wants a clean reset - beat Diaz at the same weight they fought at the first time, with a full training camp, so there's the FULL reset on his loss. It's an ego thing. Logically, we should be seeing this fight at 155 seeing as Diaz usually fights there, can make the weight (most of the time), and is only one weight class higher than what Conor holds the belt at and has fought previously in the UFC.

    I genuinely don't believe Conor is looking to push the fight at WW again just to use the 'well it's 2 weight classes higher than I usually fight' excuse if he loses again (because he used it the first time). Knowing the Conor we see in interviews, he's convinced he's beating Diaz, at the same weight, under the same circumstances, thus cancelling out his loss.

    The guy doesn't like to lose and will do anything possible to eradicate any doubt about having an advantage in the rematch. Other specifics don't matter. Yes, Diaz is better suited to WW than Conor, has fought there for stints in his career with noderate success, and no matter how much 'functional' size Conor puts on, he's at a disadvantage wanting to fight Diaz at 17 again.

    But he's got an ego and a blemish he wants to wipe out, and he's fucking determined to do it. Even if it's at the expense of his overall legacy. Who gives a shit what either weight right now. It doesn't matter.

    Many mahalos for being the only person here with common sense and the ability to speak simple truth! People are also missing a key point in what the TS posted.. The quote he wrote even has the coach saying a cut to 77 is a bit for Conor! Implying he is heavier then 177lbs when out of camp, walking around. But during camp, he walks around at 177, which is not unheard of in camp for Fw and def not rare for Lw. As an example.. Andre Fili is not a bulky 145er and was going to fight Max Griffin for the WW belt in the WFC, when he got the call to fight in the UFC (he was also the 145 WFC Champ at the time too).

    He sais during the Q&A :
    " There should be no division .. I'm fighting a man who has 20 pounds on me "
    So he's weighting 180 pounds 100 %
    You're welcome

    Conor has no business being a blown up welterweight. He isn't a natural WW and has no chance against the elite WWs. He'd get ragdolled.

    Yes. That's what that would mean.

    Where's the confusion?
