Conor McGregor (-400) vs Nate Diaz (+300)
We have the featherweight champion taking on the fifth ranked lightweight in a welterweight fight. Yeah, this fight will be a bit weird.
McGregor makes his first appearance from the Octagon since dusting Jose Aldo in 13 minutes to win the featherweight title. Considering joining the UFC back in 2013, McGregor is 7-0 with half of the victories coming through stoppage.
Much has been made of McGregor’s striking style and the devastating knockout power the Irishman possesses. His standup game relies within a vertical stance that allows McGregor to throw his teammates without even exerting surplus energy or time. He has become an expert in using his kicks to make the distance that he can use to start his arsenal of attacks. The swiftness and brutality of those attacks are unparalleled in MMA today.
The largest question mark in this fight is dimensions. McGregor is fighting at 170 pounds for the first time in his profession; a jump of 25 lbs in contrast to his last fight, and will be in a reach disadvantage for the first time inside the UFC. ‘The Notorious One’ always held a distinct advantage in size in the lower weight classes, but Nate is about four inches taller and has a two-inch achieve advantage.
Diaz possesses a fighting style that’s uniquely suited to him and his brother Nick. He’s a volume boxer first and foremost on his feet, meaning he cries in bunches and loves to be aggressive. The Stockton-native is good at keeping his distance, quickly moving in to throw a flurry and then getting back to distance. Diaz pairs his striking skills with a phenomenal floor game which has resulted in 11 of his 18 career wins coming through entry.
Despite his powerful ground game, Diaz is not able to truly use it thanks to some bad wrestling match. It appears that Diaz will frequently try to taunt his opponents to a position where they go to the takedown and that he can perform his job. Though his striking game is strong, it’s far from ideal since it involves a very simple attack with few unpredictable components.
Can Diaz submit McGregor? Yes. Will he get the opportunity to? Not likely.
This is predicted to become a standup affair and though Diaz is a competent striker, he does not have the same level of abilities that McGregor does. Conor has good movement abilities, which ought to help him overcome his attain drawback and pick up the win in this one.
