Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz II might just be the most talked about fight in UFC history, and it goes down this weekend.
On a UFC media call recently Conor predicted that he would knock Nate out in the 2nd round of UFC 202’s main event, and there are plenty of reasons to believe that is exactly what will happen.
It might seem counter intuitive to be confident that a fighter who lost the first bout will have an easy time in the rematch, but when you look at their first fight as a whole (i.e not just how it ended) there is absolutely no reason to believe that Conor wouldn’t win 99 out of 100 fights with Nate.
Conor lost the first fight because he got gassed out smashing Nate’s face, not because he wasn’t the better fighter. This time around it will be Conor KO’ing Nate, and these are 5 reasons why.
