Does anyone think Diaz will fold as neatly as Chad?

    So Chad 'gassed' after he sat on a stool in between rounds and spent most of the next round laying on top of McGregor not doing much of anything. When he inexplicably went for an unneeded guillotine attempt he allowed the trapped McGregor to stand with seconds left in the round. He then backpedalled to the cage and stood stock still with his hands at his side and waited for Conor to close the distance and throw the left. He rolled with the left and hit the canvas where Dean called off the fight.

    Does anyone think Diaz will put up more of a fight?

    Can we ban these snake-oil peddlers?

    Seeing how he and his brother do triathalons in their off-season, it's highly doubtful he will gas or fold.

    He COULD get get caught with a huge shot and get KTFO, but him quitting or gassing ain't going to happen.

    Maybe. But in the meantime it's more miles and another grind to another fight after this for Conor.

    I see this being fairly one sided for Conor myself ... but Nate is game. Depending on which Nate shows up ...

    Short notice Diaz cardio is better than full camp Mendes cardio, and I don't even like Diaz, but that's just fact. Diaz is far to basic to beat Conor though. I don't think it will be competitive.

    Diaz gassing won't be an issue. In truth if Diaz spends the next 10 days or whatever trying to get into as best shape as possible I see Conor being more likely to gas especially with the extra weight and lack of experience going past a few rounds (which Nate will probably take it to even if he's getting dominated cause he's tough AF)

    Nate was in the best shape of his life against Johnson. Unless he somehow let himself go recently, I assume he's still in great shape. Conor is the one who has not had his cardio tested.

    I'm excited that Nate is possibly getting the fight but 2 weeks notice is fucking shit.
