At best it was half of that, which is still significant but not close to 2 stones ffs. That would have Diaz fighting at around 195, which is light heavy.

Conor was well aware of the weight jump he made and never tried to use it as an excuse. Diaz was better on the night, and some would argue was better in the rematch. I think the decision was close but fair but again shows that Conor is far from infallible in the UFC.

This is what happens when one top level boxer is 20lbs heavier than his opponent on the night.

That 2nd fight was close. I personally thought it was a great fight.


McGregor took 3, maybe 4, of the rounds but, Diaz was certainly on top in round 3. 4th was close and 5th McGregor won. But, it was a great spectacle

Agreed. It was a great fight and I thought Conor deserved it. He's very talented, in and out of the ring. Not untouchable though. Was just watching the first Diaz fight again and the way he gave his back

His coach said he ignored the tactics for that fight, or something along those lines recently.


You'll find only a handful are untouchable in their chosen fields mate. Very very few

Conor would spark Khabib out first exchange
