    Light sparring? Just chill with the homies? Maybe set up an Amazon shopping list for the day after?

    Sparring to get timing and distance at least better than it was 3 days before.

    Just makeshift gameplan stuff after a few hours of watching tape, etc. Probably jab-heavy gameplan early, settle in, don't let a pace be set too early that can't be sustained on such short notice.

    Well he doesn't need to worry about cutting weight
    Maybe try and get some Dominic cruz level footwork, Anderson silva reflexes, mark hunt KO power and DCs wrestling.
    If he learns that he might have a chance

    Spar, improving kick checking since I feel mcgregor will use tons of kicks to hold a little bit of distance

    How do you check a spinning back kick or a front leg side kick?

    Those are mainly what Conor throws...

    He didn't, we saw how that turned out against rda. his last fight against Johnson he started do so a little, it would be a welcome evolution for him

    You really don't, diaz should then look at possibilities to counter them effectively eventhough 3 days won't be enough to do that. But when you see the success rda had, I think Conor will use some basic leg kicks in this fight to lessen Diaz's boxing
