    This might become his first time losing to a pure striker

    (I think he will be the red panty winner)

    Edit:

    It's official (according to bjpenn)

    The takedown is always a threat to Diaz because he hates wrestling and isn't very strong.

    Well Thomson is pretty well rounded but I wouldn't call him a huge takedown threat. Beat dat ass standing.

    Thompson is like 5'10 right?

    Don't think Diaz being 6'0 will be a problem since he doesn't know how to use this as advantage and has terrible defense.

    Wonder how that chin will react to Conor left.

    Yeah Thomson beat the crap out of Diaz not that long ago and there was no takedowns, pure stand up the whole fight, Diaz was just a punching bag for a guy who hasn't beaten anyone else in 3 years.

    Can't wait for nick to throw in the towel when he sees his bro can't hang.

    no none at all. it was 100% stand up. I seen the fight twice on UFC Fightpass. Diaz got schooled standing. I swear look it up on fightpass..

    he's pretty good with "fighting tall" and his defense is pretty sound too when it comes to anything doesn't include kicks

    Conor took down Max Holloway and Diego Brandao. Finished Brandao with GnP.

    It's been awhile since I watched it and it was a long time ago do diaz has probably improved but I believe melvin was winning the stand up before deciding to shoot for a double and getting choked

    Lol why the hell would Conor try to take Nate down though?

    Conor will be in WAYYY more trouble with Nate on the ground than he would on the feet.

    Nate has one of the nastiest guards in MMA.

    Yeah, but has Nate ever lost a fight where being taken down wasn't a threat and his opponent didn't make bitch ass lady sounds?
