    Conor, without any dehydration, landed his hardest shots on Nate and couldn't even wobble the guy?

    We all know that McGregor's trademark move is his left and it failed him. How else is he going to beat Nate?

    It's MMA and anything can happen, but unless Conor utilizes more leg kicks and pot shots Nate while dancing around him to avoid the volume punches, he doesn't realistically have a very good chance.

    I believe he did manage to wobble Diaz at least once, maybe twice.

    Not hurt him, just wobble.

    He's just gonna hit him more with this this time over more rounds & Nate will either fall to KO, TKO, or doctor's stoppage in the 3rd.

    That "kiss of death" power cannot be underestimated. Nate took them, but taking even more this time will make a difference.

    But that's not how Conor fights. Conor is very skilled and hits hard, so he obviously has a chance, but Nate has to be the favorite.

    Nates got 10 losses and has come into fights grossly out of shape, missed weight and performed poorly.

    MMA is a very dynamic sport with lots of moving pieces.

    Nate isn't some indestructable fighter.

    I actually think he loses this time for the same reason Conor lost last time.....he's bought the hype in his head and when you do that your training slacks off a little bit and you lose the edge that you had.

    Of course he needs to refrain from loading up on every punch and throw combinations. But following the Thomson blueprint wouldn't work for him -- dancing around the outside and backpedaling is completely contrary to how he fights.

    You're in denial if you think Conor isn't a smart fighter...smart enough to not make the same mistake again.

    He'll come in better prepared, better cardio, leaner, faster, stronger, and have a much better game plan.

    That doesn't mean he'll win, though. But he is a smart guy and WILL make the adjustment. I just don't know that it's enough. Diaz is a bad matchup for Conor.

    Yeah it's totally impossible for Conor to finish Nate with strikes
