    "If u ask me who im picking, i have Nate. No, no! I have Connor... because he landed at such an efficient rate of striking (the opposite of which Connor himself gave as excuse as to why he lost)"

    Models aren't exactly known for their intelligence. Mma's Zoolander IMO.

    Yeah, Jouban has definitely took too many shots to the head.

    Nate landed a higher percentage of the strikes he threw than Conor did aswell. Not sure what efficient rate of striking is supposed to refer to, if not hit/miss statistics.

    He's a model. Can't blame him for spouting the bullshit he did.

    I love Nate but... Connor is HUNGRY (& desperate).

    Nate doesn't have as much riding on this fight as Connor does. Either man can be beat. I'm still leaning towards Nate winning.

    Is there more to life than just being ridiculously good looking?

    So many variables here,it's crazy.
    Nate only had 0 days to prepare (let's be honest),this time he has a full camp.
    Conor was in shape,but got a surprise opponent,this time he will prepare specifically for nate.
    Did nate really "take a round to get warmed up"and start teeing off in mcgregor in the 2nd? Or Did nate simply capitalize on a tired mcgregor that blew his wad?
    Was it really cardio that done conor in? And if so can it be improved in a short amount of time?
    Will conor come out with a different plan?
    Will nates cardio be as good since he's bigger than normal?
    How is conors ground game when not gassed?
    As a nate fan of course,I think if conor doesn't use the same plan (trying to ko nate/hurt him) and if that plan doesn't gas gim,he will be successful.if he tries to keep a slower pace than norMal to not gas,he's done.
    If he comes out like usual but cant keep it,if he backs off the gas for just a bit in the 2nd or 3rd,if he can't keep that killer pace and slows down at all and allows nate to get that rythym,conors done.
    Nate has more direct ways to win.better cardio,better jitz,better wrestling,bigger,stronger.
    Conor has more unique ways to win via ko ( hook kicks,oblique kicks,spinning shit)
    And those oblique kicks and body shots (hands and feet) are the 2 things I see as his easiest ,most likely way to victory ....if he"slows down nates cardio" like he did with Mendes via body shots I'm gonna cry.

    Conor's accuracy was effective, is a better word for it. He might have meant that.

    Conor's management of his gas tank, was not. But his strikes landed well, and often.

    When did I not use my brain? Please enlighten me considering this thread is about a UFC fighter making his pick known for the fight.
