    Their frames are still a full weight class apart. Conor agreeing to the first fight @ 170 was asinine. This is essentially a fight in the lightweight division where both guys agree to not respect the 155 limit. That is OBVIOUSLY going to favor the naturally bigger man.

    I'm pumped for this fight, but I don't see any way that Conor wins... unless he's been practicing nothing but leg kicks for months. And even a "win" where he kicks and gets on his bike for 5 rounds isn't going to do him a whole lotta good.

    Lol ok sure, because Nate always looks like a zombie from the walking dead on the scale for 155 like Conor does 145. Nice try.

    Nate is a LW that has fought at WW. Conor is a FW who nearly kills himself to make the limit.

    Guess you missed how even his own coach admitted how taxing and difficult it is for Nate to make 155.

    When Conor fans says Fact, you can guarantee it's some random horseshit

    I disagree about Nate "just" being able to make LW.

    Fact: You just want to make Conor look Better.

    Nate doesnt kill himself and look like a dead man walking making 155, while on the other hand, Conor do look pretty bad making 145, Nate is the bigger man? Yes, but Conor is probably more suited to 155 than Nate for 170.

    This is actually true. Nate has talked about how tough the weight cut is for him before, moved up in weight because of it and has missed 155 before

    The two weight class difference myth pisses me off but claiming both Conor and Nate are both the same size is just as stupid

    This is a fw against a lw fought at 170 for some reason. Not a lw vs a lw like Diaz fans will tell you or a ww vs a fw like Conor fans will

    So now I'm a Conor fan because I recognize Nate is bigger? Pretty sure even Nate has eyes and knows he's bigger than Conor.

    Never watched boxing?

    Nate is significantly taller. Has significantly greater reach. And is naturally heavier with a larger frame.

    On what planet is that not "bigger"?

    So many people are complaining about Conor being too big for FW but he will still be smaller than Nate, and at 170 Nate will be able to maximize his size advantage. If Conor wins it is a great win, if Nate wins he beat a big FW fighting at 170.
