    Given the diaz brothers layed back i don't give a fuck attitude dont be surprised if Nate underestimates mcgregor.

    He easly beat mcgregor the first go around on 10 days notice do you guys really think a Diaz wont come in overconfident this time around.

    Hope im wrong but i get the sense Diaz thinks he will just walk through him again.

    Not sure but a truly confident Diaz is pretty damned scary. It's not like he doesn't already have the skills. He'll be in shape. He's been sparring.

    I think he'll be a nightmare come fight night.

    When did they not take training seriously in the past?

    Nate doesn't seem like the kind of guy who takes time off. It's not like he blows up eating hamburgers between fights. He seems to always be training for either a fight or triathlon, so what exactly would not serious look like?

    I don't see it TS. If you rewatch the post-fight interview Nate was actually quite hard on himself for getting hit that much in the first round and for being a slow starter, I'm sure this time he will be coming in in great shape and look to get his offense going early on.

    It's going to be a great fight for sure.

    They are not creating the hype they did last time because Conor got destroyed. UFC is keeping it low key in case Mcgregor falls again.

    The only thing I would be concerned about is that it seems like Nate has bulked up muscle wise for this fight - moreso than I think we've seen in the past, and this may effect his legendary cardio as those muscles need more oxygen.

    I think he wants another huge payday if they fight a 3rd time

    Your concern is something Nate and his camp is aware of its not something they would overlook.

    If Diaz is really interested in money, he'd be way better of losing this fight haha. If he wins, he'll be 2-0 over Conor, but if he loses, it'll leaves room for the ultra lucrative trilogy fight.

    Everyone talks all this mess about the Diaz brothers, but these guys eat clean, train year around, and do decathlons and stuff. Their work ethic, at least when it comes to training and fighting, is pretty good.

    I'm sure that's probably the case, but you never know. The Diaz camp isn't exactly known for obsessive gameplanning....so I hope you are right and I am wrong.
