    Lmao what a joke. Good fights, but def not 1 and 2. Probably not even in the top 25 at all.

    Diaz McGregor 2 is slowly becoming the most overrated rematch in history. It was a sloppy fight.

    It was a good fight but I don't recall remembering it as an all time great, probably not even a great fight. Conor looked good early then gassed, Nate took over for a bit, Conor ran around for a bit, ended up having a lot of tired exchanges in the later rounds.

    Apart from anything else it's really bad promotion. What's going to get casual fans coming back if you tell them the only two fights they've ever seen were the best two fights of all time haha

    The fights should never have been sanctioned with Diaz weighing in at 510 pounds, three times the size of McGregor.

    It was fun for 2 rounds.

    Rounds 4 and 5 were boring.

    4 was conor running away and jabbing Diaz while he laughed at conor.

    5th was a clinch fest with Diaz not being able to get conor down rofl.

    It seems like even ESPN is looking past Porier.

    This is up there with BT Sport naming the moment of the year being Cowboy-Conor and not Khabib sobbing in the octagon after losing his father

    I don't like the structure of the gregor vs Diaz rematch.
    It was pretty much like that:
    r1,2: K1 Conor
    r3.,4: Nate takes over
    r5: Conor has a little second wind but looks patetic and inactive while doing so.

    It didn't feel heroic like Izzy vs Kelvin for example.
