    or will he tackle n' grapple or stick n' move


    I think Diaz gets caught with a punch in the first round - leading to a TKO.

    He will not grapple with Diaz, we're gonna see a stand-up fight with a fair share of Stockton-slaps and left hands

    He'll stand. He also has a granite chin. So if Conor does ko him, it'll be something..

    Boxing match with a lot of kicks from McGregor, I imagine.

    I reckon he'll try and KO him with one of his 'Hollywood' kicks.

    He's not gonna try and grapple the guy that's the better grappler. He's gonna fuck around and get his leg snatched up if he does.

    Why on earth would conor go for a takedown? Nate's ground game is legit..

    Ofcourse he'll stand. That's why Fedor is still the greatest, struck with Crocop, fought on the ground with Noguiera. Basically destroyed everyone at their own game, while being undersized. Conor would be dumb to go to the ground with Diaz, but it would make a big statement if he actually beat him there.

    No way Conor will try to grapple with Nate in this whole fight. He's going to try to keep this fight standing as much as he can.

    Gracie JJ motherf*****!

    Conor never goes for takedowns, he only did so against Max due to injury

    This will be a stand up war no doubt, it will be hard to put away Nate though

    he will try to kick alot an catch him good and then finish him fast
    will be fun to watch if he isn't succesful in the first round and slows down a bit after that
    that could be the point where nate starts to connect and pick him apart like he did to mj

    Nate is far better on the ground than Conor is. Bad idea

    The question should be...does Nate stand with Conor. He'd be extremely wise to smother Conor on the cage, take him down and work his ground game. Conor has one very, very good dimension. Taking that away is your path to victory.

    Who said anything about Conor being a ''bum?"

    Your nervousness is showing.
