I must mention though, at a ufc fighters after party in Sacramento....

Nick Diaz wanted to fight me. Foo was heated for who knows what reason. I was ready to fight him (and obviously get my ass beat)
I wasn't steppin down for no one.

Cowboy Cerrone came over and calmed him down.
Phew. I owe Cowboy.


True story.

I can't wait for this fight, I'm a bandwagon jumper in regards to MMA and have jumped on the Ronda and Conor express, and the first fight was brilliant. I can't see how Conor wins bar a perfect punch or kick that scrambles Nate, he doesn't have the endurance or ground game or size to beat him, unless he is going for a points win and is going to try to score points and has trained for a points win 5 round fight then Nate takes this as soon as it goes to the ground past round 2.

Just as casual as casual you can get but im going Diaz.
Natural weight,top chin and great stamina are a nightmare match up for someone coming up and its very hard to keep your main attributes from your usual weight when jumped up.McGregor was catching him enough in the first gig and will likely be better prepped in the stamina department but im still thinking and wanting that Diaz will knock the Leprechaun clean the fuck out of him.

I'm as casual as you like.
Never had a punt on a UFC fight before but I'm seeing round 4 as my likely bet with a few other sneaky ones for back up.
I'm only spending $50 on it but I'll endeavour to put my bets up on here before the fight, once I've put them on.
Nate to finish it in the 4th round is my main hunch.

Eh, I can't believe I'm a casual now. I used to watch Pride Fighting pretty hardcore back in the day. I stopped watching after Pride fell and UFC started dominating.

I'll watch it.

The only other UFC nights i've watched have been McGregor and Lesnar.

I always fast forward through all the other fights.

I want McGregor to win. Purely because he's Irish and the Irish went to war with the so called UK and the UK are still so unbelievably butthurt over it, it's hilarious.

Want Diaz to win, which he will. Anybody else getting extremely bored of Connor talking about money all the time? We've had all that with floyd, broner etc. it's stale as fuck.

I wouldn't say that. Just, I stopped really being bothered to watch MMA. Pride had all kinds of crazy, fun shit with the weird styles and complete fuck ups while UFC is just too uniform.

I don't understand this. A fight is a fight. You can criticize both orgs - PRIDE spent a lot of time putting its best fighters up against total cans in bullshit non-competitive squash matches, for instance. Like Fedor winning the HW belt when he was 13-1, then in his next 14 fights he defended it three times.

If you like fighting, then I can't see why you'd go off the sport just because PRIDE died due to its own corruption. We get fights damned near every weekend now, and the standard of fighting is FAR higher. Plus, fighting MMA in a ring is just plain stupid. Oh well, each to their own eh. :conf

Did you see any of Robbie Lawler's title run? He put on four ATG classic fights, one after the other after the other. An insane run of action-packed, back and forth wars against established well-rounded, elite-level #1 contenders. Seek out one of them, if you haven't seen any of them. Either Hendricks 1 or 2, or MacDonald, or Condit. All instant classics. :good

We might see a calmer patient measured mcgregor this time. Hes been quiet, demeanor and personality have changed in a big way since Diaz knocked him on his arse.

Only guessing but I think mystic mac has something special planned, whatever happens. a new level to rise again. Every fight is a level above the last (barring the upset obviously)
