Why do people make it seem like a full camp Diaz is invincible?

    Sure, he will be way better off than on two weeks notice. But sherbros are making it seem like he's going to become an astronomically better fighter with literal lightning fast reflexes, unbeatable boxing skills, more power than the hulk, etc...it's crazy.

    I don't think anyone actually believes this. Not sure why you're crying about it.

    They don't think he's invincible, but he beat Conor in the 2nd round on 11 days notice the first time around.

    Didn't he have a full camp against Thompson and RDA?

    Nobody thinks he's invincible. But if no camp Diaz can ruin Conor, it makes pretty good sense that full camp Diaz will do a lot better.

    Yes, very very impressive. But Nate is woefully inconsistent, you never know what type of performance you're going to get out of him until he'd actually in the cage fighting.

    Was sick for the RDA fight and had other shit he was dealing with behind the scenes with Zuffa.

    Thompson, don't know. But Conor ain't landing head kicks anytime soon. :>

    Conor was winning the majority of their fight, though. But he was also unprepared for the fight as well. Not as much as Nate was, but he had to deal with a huge style change last minute.

    TS would rather see Cabo Diaz tap Conor again.

    He's not alone, but we'll have to make do.

    ehh. Conor hit him with like 4 or 5 really good punches, and they barely fazed Nate. Unless Conor is able to hit way harder, or Nate's chin is way weaker, this fight really doesn't look good for Conor.

    No one said he is invincible, but he is going to beat the crap out of Conor again

    Why do you keep making shit threads?

    I agree , the one thing I think people are underestimating is the fact that conor was so wrapped up in his own hype that he thought he was untouchable and for pretty good reason with his dominate run up to that point . I believe he will come in to this fight knowing he is gonna have to fight smart follow the game plan and make no mistakes . Will it be enough to win ? Maybe, maybe not but it will be a great fight for sure

    Remember Conor's face when his biggest shots couldn't put Nate down or even wobble him? The man was stunned and demoralized, and that's difficult to ignore. How will a full camp for Nate do anything but bolster that?

    I don''t think that. I was watching one interview with Nate prior to first fight and he said sometimes he come in with full camp and perform like shit sometimes no camp and is world beater. Also a lot of these fighters say you need rest and low intensity training sometimes.

    That said Conor literally has no tools to beat Nate. Styles make fights.
    -Nate has longer reach and better boxing and Conor can't compete at his strongest point.
    -Nate can't really be KO'ed especially by likes of a a small man like conor. He was rocked after like 4 head kicks by Thompson. Conor is a KO artist but not enough of one to damage nate. First fight proved that as Conor hit him with very strong shots and Nate walked right through them.
    -Nate obviously dominates any where on the ground.
    -Nate is a endurance freak who always comes forward. Could fight 10 rounds if he had to. Conor is not. He relies on explosive speed and power. After 1-2 rounds slows and drops hands.

    Just a terrible matchup for Conor. I literally give him 5% chance. And most of that is because you can lose if you are cut/bleeding too bad. Basically Conor can win on a cut.

    The weird thing about this fight to me is Conor looked pretty good right before the tide changed , which I didn't noticed the first time I seen it
    I agree I did see that. But conor knows nate is beatable he just went about it the wrong way , I do believe conor can change thinges up and possibly change the outcome
