I think that Conor is the UFC wonder boy right now and he's been given the golden ticket, which initially made me sick, considering how there are many great fighters who've been screwed by the UFC. I also initially thought that this was a bad match up for him and a risky move because I don't really consider Diaz a contender right now, although some people and the rankings will disagree. If he loses to Diaz he can go back down in weight and keep his belt and all will be fine... on the surface at least, but what does this do to his morale and the mindset of other fighters who he might face, as well as his image? Anyway... I never got the Diaz brother's infatuation by some people. They're both ok fighters who are edgy and seem to get under people's skin but other than that, I think their antics are more exciting than their fighting. I think the presser was interesting, Diaz was a bit taken back, this isn't normal for him or his brother but it also showed the different level of promotion ability that Conor brings and his mental game. It really is night and day with him and a wide majority of fighters. Hopefully Conor continues to back his words with his actions, I'd hate for him to go out Brock style... a big, exciting draw, who finally goes against a string of quality talent only to get thrashed and then leave the sport. Either way, I hate to admit it but I'm excited for this fight after the presser and I'm now "somewhat" of a Conor fan. But.....for some reason, I do have a bad feeling. So my prediction is Diaz in the 2nd or 3rd by submission. Hopefully for the sport's sake I'm wrong.
