    Nate Diaz will have a gastank as deep as a puddle of cat piss with a 1 week camp.
    I like the Diaz Brothers, but Nate isn't championship material. With a 1 week camp, the tools he does have will not work. He simply will not be able to keep up with McGregor's pace.
    I am looking forward to the fight, but this was a fight that was put on to save this card.
    1 Week camp Nate does not pose a threat to McGregor.

    Cliffs: Dat cardio on Nate will be as deep as a puddle of cat piss. War Diaz, War McGregor.

    Sorry, who exactly is picking Nate? Conor is the overwhelming favorite, meaning this thread is pure shi*.

    Nate's cardio shouldn't be too bad. By all indications he's been staying in shape.

    I would say the folks picking Nate are about 5,000 to 1 at this point.

    I've seen about 3 or 4 Nate videos including the presser since the fight was announced... and I don't think Nate has once said he will win, which seems a bit weird.

    I agree. People confuse the promoter and fighter trying to sell a fight by saying he's in shape are deluding themselves.

    He's a fun pick. I hope he wins. Not putting money on him.

    Gonna be funny to see 90% of Sherdog abandon McGregor when he loses.

    I'm picking Nate because it's the way mma works. As soon as someone gets god status they get it ripped from them. They've done studies you know, 60% of the time it happens everytime.

    Two things I think we can rely on -
    Nate won't give up
    Conor won't stop pressing.....

    Now think what rly Conor have vs Nate?

    He punch harder? - Yes

    His striking is much better? - No

    Is he faster? - Yes

    I'm rooting for Nate, doesn't mean I'm picking him to win.

    Any loyal fans like myself have watched him before he joined the UFC so very unlikely. He will retire undefeated in the UFC. Easy :)
