1. Conor is Better
There really is no better way to put this: Conor McGregor is a better fighter than Nate Diaz.
Conor McGregor’s cardio lost the fight, not Conor. And Nate didn’t win the fight as much as he capitalized on Conor’s fatigue. This is not to say that it is a tainted victory or anything of the sorts, but it’s a fight that Conor lost because he didn’t conserve energy and instead went relentlessly for a finish.
That won’t be how he fights this time, and as a result Conor will spend the whole bout getting in and out with his punches, scoring points and being far too elusive for Nate to connect with. Eventually, whether its in the 2nd round or the 5th, Conor will break through with something that turns the lights out on Nate.
