    Marked. He likely will finish Diaz though.

    McG's hands are his most dangerous weapon. If he gets a finish, it's either via straight left, or uppercut like he predicts.

    Lol at a hook kick KOing anyone let alone Nate.

    There's a reason there's only a few hook kick KO on the internet and its not even a clean KO most of the time.

    Its a hard kick to generate power with. Possibly THE hardest kick to generate power with.

    A spinning heel kick I say. Conor's opponents always hunched over when he threw it. Diaz is chin up as fuck.

    Isn't Diaz the tallest dude Conor has ever faced? I think it get's harder to land a kick the taller the guy is, this is unlikely, it will be a punch KO.

    It depends on the kick.

    A spinning hook kick is easier to land on a taller fighter because a shorter one can just duck under it like Siver did multiple times.

    I don't think spinning shit works on Diaz bros though.

    No explanation? Just the coolest thing that popped into your head?

    Diaz by spinning shit.

    Yes, he misses because the opponents he fights are 5'5 foot tall and the kicks fly over them

    No I've actually seen some interviews where he said that he would really like to land that on someone and he claimed that eventually he will.

    I believe him
