    But by your logic, Nate only fights shorter guys, so...

    Also, when two guys throw punches, and one gets KTFO, it's still a fight. Would it only have counted if Conor let Aldo hit him a bunch of times, and then knocked him out?

    If Nate fights he'll take this fight to the ground and choke Conor until he's not moving anymore. Nate has the boxing to setup the takedowns. I think a lot of people are counting him out to quickly.

    Romero Pissed hot. Dana will give him to someone who will surely win but won't put Nate high If he manage to win...Probably Ben Rothwell...

    i was thinking more of all the people calling conor mcgoat and generally hanging off his nuts

    the river of tears would be so strong someone would have to build an ark

    personally i dont care who wins, just hope it lasts longer than 13 seconds

    My first mmA COACH told me there is no such thing as a fluke in mma, it's all action and reaction. Nobody loses from "fluke" anything

    Hmm. Maybe Dana is happy? conor getting to big for his britches?

    And very unlikely that nate pulls this. Nate's style is based on wearing opponents down and less than a week to prepare is not going to give him the conditioning he needs. 1-2 rd TKO for conor imo.

    Nate has the jiu jitsu to sub conor but unfortunately not the take down game to get it there IMO.

    Not only that, but Aldo CRACKED him with his left hook while going down! That would have been a double KO against many lesser fighters. It just goes to show that Aldo is a born fighter even in his sleep and Conor can take a tremendous punch.

    That being said, I agree with this guy. I personally picked Poirier, Mendes and Aldo to beat McGregor. After Aldo, I became a firm believer that he would knock out RDA in the first. But Nate Diaz just doesn't get KO'd in the first.

    Even with the 3-day camp, I think Nate makes this a fight. I'm not picking him to win, and I still favor Conor. But I think too many people are counting Nate out, and I won't be surprised at all if he boxes him up and finishes with a sub.

    There can only be so many flukes before it's no longer a coincidence. I'm not even a Conor fan but some of you guys need to accept that he is a great fighter and stop wrestling with silly excuses

    Maybe at this point Dana would want it to happen. A loss might give Dana more leverage in future negotiations with Conor. It would certainly stop people from saying Conor is neck and neck with Dana in terms of power

    This would be a good boxing match between both fighters with Holloway eating punches for three rounds.

    I believe Conor has already proved the hype is real.
    It`s funny how all the pros say the hype is real, but Shertards don`t.
