    Shane Carwin diet. Much better results than Dolce.

    And yet his significant strikes and grappling stats have remained the same

    He was taller than McGregor at the conference today. Lifts?

    Dana probably made him cut 2 inches out of his shins to be closer in height to Conor.

    They're making Diaz cut height for Conor part of the deal

    He thought the fight was going to be at 155 so he probably started cutting height on short notice

    Why would his stats based on percentages over his entire UFC tenure change from a 1 fight sample size in a 21 fight ufc career? if it did change, it'd be by tiny amounts at best.

    What's wierd is that none of Diaz' stats changed, even strikes per min etc etc etc. Also, it looks weird that Conor has the C for Champion in there, and Nate is listed as #5 when this fight takes place in neither of the weight classes where either of those things are true.

    To be fair, it does seem odd considering he landed more significant strikes against Michael Johnson than in his previous 5 fights combined.

    EDIT: Just collected the numbers and Diaz landed 854 significant strikes in his 20 UFC fights prior to fighting MJ. He landed 153 against MJ, which is about 18% of his previous total. They must not have taken it into account.
    854 / 20 = 42.7
    854 + 153 = 1007
    1007 / 21 = 47.9

    That's some proper WWE sell-the-fight adjusting there.
