    Looking forward to this, although I can't see it lasting long. Diaz looks weak, out of shape and really soft around the core. I'm not an MMA expert at all so perhaps I'm wrong.. but he doesn't look to be in any type of shape.

    That being said he's had no camp, more importantly he's getting half a mill for just showing up.. no brainer for him. Although brains are something he seems to be lacking, one to many blows to head is my perception every time I hear him talk.

    Really hope that this one actually goes a few rounds, I turned round to type a message to Leith on Skype last time during the Aldo fight and missed it all!

    Just watched this, could be a good fight if Diaz is on form, maybe even get a round or two..

    Diaz is getting more then 1 million for the fight. Both Nick and Nate are tall skinny guys and does not look in great shape but these guys have most likely the best endurance in the game. They both were training for a triathlon before Nate got the call. I don't see Nate winning either unless he pulls guard on Mcgregor. Diaz's can also take a punch, so we'll see how this pans out

    If I am still awke to watch this, I also want to see Holly Holm beat Miesha Tate.
    It was good to see her put Ronda Rousey in her place ( I do like Rousey, but her attitiude at times stinks )

    It will last a while I think - while yeah Diaz is out of shape and not in 100% condition conor is underweight (168 without cutting, so about 155 in normal fight spec) and for the first time in the UFC he doesn't have a reach advantage, so he will not be fighting on the front foot as he normally would.

    He did cut weight. Reports was that he weighted 163 when fighting Aldo. He bulked since then. Also, he looked leaner and smaller from his last 3 weeks instagram photos. My bet is he cute 5-6 pounds and made 168 so people would think he didn't cut any weight.

    Diaz is a straight forward boxer which means he doesn't move or look to take angles, he just move forward with his chin down (when engaging) and brawl. Also, from the press conference staredown you can see that it looks a little while to Diaz to react to Mcgregor's punch.

    Diaz isn't out of shape. He's probably not in a fighting shape but he's certainly not out of shape. He and Nick were training for a triathlon.

    McGregor's speed and agility will make the difference. Not sure if he's gong to be able to KO him tho. This thing might go 5 rounds

    There is no way he cut weight.

    People are saying he was on steroids to put this amount of weight on... no. He just didn't cut. The most he did was take an extra large crap that morning and maybe skipped breakfast.

    Diaz can take a beating. He isn't like Jose Aldo where he's going to run up with his guard down (looked fake as hell in my opinion). I've seen Diaz get his ass beat and then submit someone at the end of a round. In all honesty, I cannot see Dana White letting the UFC's top draw (McGregor) take a loss to Nate Diaz.

    So, I got McGregor in the 4th round by TKO.

    Your comparing weight ins where he had to cut ALOT of weight. Compare yesterday's weight in and this one below (fight night vs Aldo) and you can there's not much of a difference. He looked leaner at yesterday's weight in compared to his instagram's photo.

    What a cool person to share a name with. He is so cool and good looking. And that beard isn't scraggly and stupid at all.
