Are we going to get to see a Diaz knocked out today?

It's going to be an interesting one. I just watched the Mendes Macgregor fight again and Mac didn't have much for Mendes' takedowns and it was only due MacGregor's size advantage that he really powered through. Diaz's size is definatly going to be harder for Mac to power out of if Diaz wraps him up.

I think a saving grace for Diaz is that he is too stupid to realise he has been knocked out. I mean the guy has been semi conscious at best in every media interaction for years.

I'm the best at being modest !

I wonder if he's feeling slower and fat or big and strong.

what was his walk around weight before ? and I am down 5 lbs in weight and I feel way better .

personally Nate handles the weight better IMO and I think Conor is in for a bigger fight than he thinks , he also cuts easily last 2 fights he has been cut in the same spot .

once the Stockton slaps start happening it could get bloody .

I think Macgregor can handle his bigger size pretty well. He looks a lot healthier and happier than the emaciated leprechaun that he was at 145. I think that he will still win.

Diaz's jujitsu will be the only factor. Diaz is a great boxer, but his lack of power and MacGregor's hard to hit style will probably render it useless.

who says Diaz lacks power maybe he prefers not to use it .

throwing power shots all the time takes away from endurance , Diaz is a trained IronMan conditioned athlete he can probable hit at 70 to 80% all night .

he has awkward range and stupid ground skills and is a balls in fighter who has spent is career destroying top 10 fighters

Casual fan here, just taking interest when it makes headlines (or forum threads).

Is it regular to have two title fights so close together? He won the belt not so long ago, and here he is again. GSP or the Spider wouldn't fight that regularly would they?

The amount of damage Diaz can take is obscene. Connor got a touch cocky…

Straw, Connor just came off the fast knockout championship win in history so he was still fresh.

Fun fight to watch.. can't say much about the others though…
