    People are concerned about Nates cardio when they should really be concerned about mcgregor's. Conor has never fought at welterweight before. Nick Diaz with his steel chin will eat mcgregor shots just long enough for mcgregor to gas.

    nates cardio and nicks chin would be nice but this isnt a comic book

    conor looked like a murderer in the second round vs siver and is no longer cutting massive weight. he has 2.5 rounds of cardio vs nate at minimum imo

    If Nate comes like he did in his last outing, he will make this fight interesting. He has the reach and size advantage.

    Conor has literally never even looked tired and yet you bums continue to push this "Conor will gas" bullshit. He tooled Holloway over three rounds with a torn ACL without breaking a sweat.

    Beat it, nerd.

    Diaz just gets stronger as the fight goes on. The new size will be a detriment for Conor

    losing to a Diaz would be the best justice I can imagine for Conor and half of this website.

    Diaz fans will NEVER let it go, but at least they will have something new to chew on and maybe forget Condit.

    if i hope for it too much, im likely to be disappointed.

    but im still hoping.

    Have you got a link that states he went three rounds with a torn ACL?

    I have torn my ACL. When it happened, I could not put even the slightest bit of pressure on my knee without it collapsing. I find it hard to believe he went three rounds of fighting with a torn ACL.

    Connie doesn't seem like the kind of guy to gas.

    He tore it in the second or third trying to pass guard if I remember correctly.

    Conor looked gassed as fuck in the 12th second of his Aldo fight.

    Sure this makes a lot of sense. McGregor won't have to cut any weight and that means his cardio will be worse. Very logical indeed! Furthermore, Nate coming from a 2 week training camp means he won't gas. This is mindblowing.

    We'll see. I think it can go the distance, but if nates gonna win he needs to get off early. My guess is somewhere in round 3 he starts to coast to a decision. Tho it's not accurate to say Conor can go hard for 5 rounds. No ones seen him go into Late rounds, especially at 170.

    Conor looked gassed and flat footed in the second round of the Mendes fight.

    It was in the second round. McGregor couldn't move properly and had to change it up, resorting to takedowns and won all 3 rounds iirc
