UFC 202: McGregor vs Diaz 2 fight thread

Possibly the biggest rematch in UFC history is set to go down tomorrow night when Nate Diaz takes on Conor McGregor.

Now if you are an mma fan and for some reason have not seen the first fight, I'd advise you to watch it immediately.

For those that have seen the first fight, what do you expect in the rematch and do you think the outcome will be any different?

A quick prediction on my part, I think McGregor will play it smart and look to out land Nate and earn a decision win but Nate on a full camp should be too much for McGregor and I expect him to come strong through rounds 3-5 and earn a decision win

Diaz via unanimous decision

Thoughts and predictions?

Re watched the McGregor fight. Conor definitely had 1,2 and 4

I've watched it again. It still comes down to how round 2 was scored. A draw would have been good enough but with Diaz 1-0 up, a draw would do nothing for Conor. Also there were moments in the second half of the fight where Conor would turn his back and walk away and nate would point and laugh and have to chase him down. I found that distasteful personally and the ref should have warned him.

Condit vs Maia
Pettis vs Oliviera

Not sure about you guys but those two fights are great match ups. Condit vs Maia is an excellent stylistic match up and I was disappointed they took it off the 202 card. Winner of that fight gets the title shot after Thompson.

And pettis at 145lbs? Wow.

If he looks like the old Pettis, the featherweight division might just have got very interesting.

think the knockdowns won it for McGregor. Epic fight regardless, neither fighter deserved a loss on their record after that.

Think McGregor most of the Lightweight division. Not many would take the shots Diaz did

Diaz is a tough fighter with a black belt.

If Conor knocks down his opponents, he'll be more willing to jump on them.

The lightweight division is a dangerous place for Conor.

Alvarez
Khabib
Dos Anjos

Those guys have a great wrestling base and would be more than capable of taking Conor down.
