No idea why Diaz is the favorite...
Nick will throw in the towel before baby brother takes any real damage..
Not sure where you're seeing him as the favorite
He's the underdog across all boards on this website
Pettis wont ko Diaz with a punch. Diaz doesnt have a glass chin
Well I see him as the favorite because Pettis wilts under pressure and who pressures more then the Diaz bros?
Also Pettis beating Wonderboy was a fluke IMO.
That would mean something if Diaz fought anything like Wonder does
Wonder is evasive and allows space which is how Pettis likes to fight too
Tony Ferguson but I think Diaz's pressure, size/height is going to cause Pettis problems.
Pettis is the favorite...
I thought Pettis was the favorite? And Nate has been out for 3 years, not 4.
Also ... the guy constantly trains in triathalons and did a fair amount of a fight camp recently for a potential bout against Dustin Poirier. He may not have been fighting, but he's probably been pretty active in training. I don't really expect the time off to make a huge difference.
I see this as a pretty even fight. Pettis with the better striking and power, but Nate with the constant pressure and cardio. Either Pettis finishes early, or Nate takes over midway through round 2 and finishes a gassed Pettis.
Yeah I think Tony is like an evolved version of the Diaz bros.
Mixes in kicks as well and tough as nails.
He's not the favourite
Diaz is the CHAMP MF
Because Anthony Pettis well....
Pettis was clearly losing to Wonderboy and has lost 6 of his last 10 fights.
Still, I think he beats Diaz in a close decision.
Diaz by submission boys, it's gonna happen....Armbar Round 2
Unlike Wonderboy, Nate Diaz won't come to dance.
He’s not the favorite. He definitely, however, has many paths to victory. He would more so if this was 5 rounds. Nate should never be counted out. I lean Pettis, but Nate will be in good shape. Rust is different with a guy who never lets himself go.
I see Diaz outlasting Pettis and wearing him down. One does not simply KO a Diaz
Pettis is fat
Wonderboy does not really want to fight. He wants do a lot of standing in front of you..
