684

MMA H.E.A.T.’s Wade Eck was on location in Las Vegas, Nevada for UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor’s gym day, which took place Friday, August 12, 2016 at 7:15pm PT. Conor talked about his UFC 202 rematch with Nate Diaz, what he felt went wrong last time and how’s preparing differently this time. Conor stated he’s already below weight for the welterweight bout and he wonders how Nate, supposedly walking around at 200lbs, is going to handle the weight cut. Conor also talks about the 2016 Olympics, whether he’ll face UFC Interim Featherweight Champ Jose Aldo next, whether he’ll fight Floyd Mayweather, if he thinks Dana White should ban Jon Jones + Brock Lesnar for life, plus much more!

  1. Conor stop lol, yes Diaz has a major weight advantage, but so do you over the small little fucks you fight, Conor walks around at 160, he looked like a Habanero pepper all wrinkly and dry against Aldo, Conor should be fighting at Lightweight and he knows it

  2. Replace Dana With Chale Sunnon!!!! The fans like him better!!!! Dump Dana the fans sick of him he full of shit!!!! At least Chale is a real fighter and really knows what`s going on in the fight!!!Chale is better for the UFC!!!! The new owners should look at that!!!!Cancel the contract with Daina!!!!Hahahaha he not good for the fighters or the sport!!!And put a solid host type manager in!!!

  4. Collin should join the Hollywood movie scene.  Great actor for thes  e previews to pump up the dollars.  Diaz kicked his ass last time buahahaha. And cut the bush, like seriously.  The beard trend is done . It's so over.  Cut the damn beard faggot.

  6. So now he is trying to look like a hipster. McFagor is all talk. When is the last time this bitch even fought….he had his ass handed to him. Its almost like he is just "champion" in name….in reality he hasn't proven shit.

  7. Both guys are exciting to watch , wether you want Conor to get knocked out or Nate knocked out. Conor understands the business very well , someone with talent / skills and larger than life persona can draw in PPV sales . Conor is Nate's knight in shining armour , he showing him how to make money and taking him along for the ride [ and Nate sure does deserve it ] . Peace .

  9. I was 110% behind McGregor the first fight against Diaz. And could not stand Diaz and hoped Conor would whip him good. But I have had a complete turnaround. Diaz open hand slapped Conor the whole first round. Some of the critics say Conor won the first. Diaz didn't hit him but just slapped him on purpose, watch it. Then he whipped him like a kid and choked him out mercifully. Now big mouth McGregor has the nerve to say this stuff. Still not a Diaz fan but I am pulling for him here. How about shut up a bit and let your hands do the talking. Only people who have been whipped and been in a fight know what happened the first fight. Diaz dominated him and owned him. You think this one will be different? Diaz is in Conor's head and Conor knows, he knows but is trying to psych himself up. He better be on some good steroids, allowed by Dana. I still see Diaz beating his butt.

  11. greatest fighter on earth ,a loss has just made his career more interesting ,he will beat nate ,a finish before rd3 , he is a true champion , rock solid mindset , its funny to see all the diaz fans givin it " i told you so etc etc" mac will crush him , it will be round 1 for 3 rounds until nate cant take anymore

  13. You guys are funny. Yes, he's extremely confident, and maybe cocky.. But, the guy is a positive for every fighter, and he's even for addtional fighter negotiating power. He's a huge draw and brings a lot for everyone. All you negative people are just haters. We'll see if he can overcome this obstacle with Nate. It's not easy fighting a bigger man, try and wrestle with one, then think about how much harder it is getting hit by one. I for one got my eyes opened wrestling with a guy 50+lbs above me….. It matters.

    Sorry, my girls account.

  15. The referees operate on an agenda given to them by the UFC. Notice how they stop certain fights immediately while they prolong other fights to perhaps alter the result. Keeping that in mind, the UFC wants and needs Connor to win to keep his brand alive. They will show his significant strikes in the replays in between rounds to influence the judges and the audience. The commentators will promote the same. I don't expect either one to KO the other, they both can take a punch pretty well. Conor will keep it standing and probably get the win by decision. The only way Nate can win is if he finishes the fight.

  17. Only one person got slapped in the last fight. Nate bitch slapped Conor 3 times. I don't see that changing in this fight. Nate's bigger, stronger, in better shape, had a real training camp and knows the paycheck he's going to get when he beats Conor this time will change his life. He might retire. After Nate wins this fight he'll never take another low end opponent for the rest of his career. He'll get title shots, big money draws(GSP, Lawler, etc) and probably some 165-175 catch weights. If it isn't half a million he won't touch it. If I was in his shoes, neither would I. Nate didn't even want this rematch. He decisively beat Conor in less than 2 rounds. Conor didn't even get TKO'd or saved by the ref, he quit. He tapped after he got knocked around on his feet and asked the ref to stop Nate from mangling him even more. Nate only took this fight because it is making him stinking rich. He doesn't care about beating him again, its all about the money.

    Let's not forget that this isn't the first time Conor got his ass kicked by a fighter on short notice with no training camp. Mendes beat the dog shit out of Conor until he gassed. Mendes actually did more damage to Conor than Nate did, the only difference was Mendes didn't have the cardio to finish Conor once he had him hurt. Mendes had Conor's face smashed up, mounted him, had him in a crucifix, cut him badly and pummeled him for 8 minutes of their 10 minute fight. Mendes even hurt Conor with strikes on his feat numerous times despite the fact he had a foot shorter reach and no training camp.

  18. This man has a very impressive systematic mentality. Getting beat by Nate was a very good thing for him. Look what happened when GSP lost! He came back even more phenomenal and dominated the opponent he lost to in the rematch.

    Conor has laser like focus. And he can thank Diaz for giving him a slice of humble pie. I think it matured him, and caused him to shut his stupid mouth, because it was getting WAY TOO BIG!

    Let's see now if Conor has what it takes to be a true warrior and fighter. Let's see if his skill set has improved …

  20. A P

    Trash talk legend, beaten bruised but confident. makes a good fight. Let me tell you, if you know fighting – once you been beaten by someone, there's always the element of fear that they could do it again. So if Conor loses his touch at any stage, he will collapse fairly quick. Nonetheless the fear will be in Nate, that Conor now is coming back for revenge – heavy artillery. So he will need proper defenses, and best to take him down to the floor quicker and choke him out. It's the only way. Conor is looking for a first round tornado.

  22. McGregor is an attention whore, full of wind and boasting, ive yet to here anybody who loves themselves so much. There must be 100 mirrors in his house. Get out of town you rude little mick upstart. Nate will punch you all over the ring. The word you are struggling to find is "thing" not ting, thats what the bell does in boxing.

    • I think you mis-read Conor , he is the new gen of UFC business men . He stirs up controversy so people pay to see him win or some will pay to see him lose . He made ufc $400 million in his last 3 fights . He's a showman and a huge draw $$$$$$$$

    • +soldierblue68 yeh youre right …..I prefer the down to earth Nate and Nick Diaz. I think they are fascinating  people who came from nothing and wear the scars of hard work and beatings. I sincerely hope Nate wins, he's been used and under paid too long, perhaps this will bring about a decent pay day. I have to laugh at Nates story about wanting to buy a decent Cadillac and a new house with $16k. It just shows they are real people from the arse end of an estate. Looking forward to the fight if it ever gets off the ground

    • Nice one , Nate has said just after ufc 200 he only wants to fight Conor .I doubt they hate each other behind the scenes , Nate knows everyone wants to fight Conor because its a money draw . I want to see a great fight , not sure if it was the smartest career move for McGregor . Nate is a warrior .

  24. He is so deluded and arrogant, he got absolutely whooped except a the very very begining of the first round wher he got a few shots in…..he should take a leaf out of Fedor Emelianko's book a true great and a very humble man!

  26. Used to really like this guy, but what a fucking loser now.

    On an on an on about such an irrelevant fight like McGregor –  Diaz. Never should have fought once, not a sequel is more dumb.

    Defend your belt? "we'll see"… WTF we'll see???

    CM wants to put a fluke win from Diaz, who is overhyped and loses to anyone good. Use that win to meet GSP and take his best payday into retirement.

    This meeting should never have happened. Either defend the belt, or vacate it.

  28. Conor is correct only on the WWE part. Old wwf people were real bad ass people and crazy fuckers lol and many went to jail or died suicide or killing someone. Not most but some. They were crazy roid up mofos but these day people like cena and these fuckers are dickheads just punks making money and they are dickheads to little kids and dont care bout fans like the old folks. the undertaker and bret hart the real OG hulk hogan and michaels etc were bad asses lol

  30. Conor only got famous and make a good fighting UFC record cause like he saids with his own mouth. He fights with midgets at a weight class which is like crackhead division. He wouldnt be where hes at if he faught people his own size at 155. He wouldnt last anyone in the top 5 at 155. He might win a few but top 5 at 155 would eat most of his left punches that makes midgets "crumble" like conor shittalks lol. But iron face iron chin diaz will never get knocked out by this kid. I hope diaz doesnt start leaking because he has so much scar tissue he just bleeds alot but he isnt phased at all. He has only been knocked out 1 times in 15 years . Diaz aint getting knocked out by this leprecock. Conors a bully at 145 looking cracked out. Look at his pictures are so different when he cuts weight. Looks like a skinny crackhead on period PMSing picking fight with the california kid lol conor is hillarious… Great business man. Made a name out of his self and he is worth alot of $$ for the meanwhile. So he better cake fast before he turns int oa nobnody

  32. The Irish Paddywagon Idol makes an ass of himself again. He is the one who is going to be slapped around he ring by a much bigger and stronger opponent. It will end the same for Mr. Lucky Charms. Rear naked choke or arm bar. Hope a neck is broken. That would be nice. Carried out on a stretcher to emergency and he entire country of Ireland weeping over his death. The irish flag at half mast. What a joke. I would not mind tat at all. !!@@!!

  34. A fight between Conor and Floyd is pointless, Conor will get his ass whooped boxing Floyd and Floyd will probably get beat in the octagon. Floyd will do better in the octagon than Conor will boxing him.

  35. If after being whooped by a guy with 8days notice, all the training, all the shit talk pre and post choke out, Connie better walk in there and butt rape Nate or its just another loss, he cant win by decision, only knock out or choke. He made it that way himself. And @samwatkins is a touchbutt mctapout delusional gimp.lol

    • You know he didn't put on any weight for that fight, he simply didn't cut. He walks around in life at around 170. It is inaccurate to say he "put on weight for this fight". If anything he got a break from emaciating himself for 145. He was fresh and ready to rock. If you watch his interviews his loss of cardio had nothing to do with his weight and size but his arrogance in thinking he will one punch knock out a seasoned professional like Nate who unlike all of his other opponents is actually his size.

    • My friend Conor could not fight at 135 if his life depended on it. He is on the verge of a convulsion to make 145 on weigh in day. Also you have it backwards. A person is used to how they walk around in life and make an exception for fighting. The average fighter cuts around 10-12 lbs to make weight for the purpose of being the biggest you can be at the smallest weight class. Conor walks around at 165-170. This is why he looks like such a crack head at weigh ins. In fact most don't believe he will maintain that for very long as he is only 27 and doing it on youth and vigor. But don't take my word for it, search for the interview with his coach who states very plainly that Conor walked right into that fight in perfect health, training with the added bonus of not having to put his body through any kind of weight gain or weight loss.

    • +funkyflights Bantam weight is 135, Featherweight is 145. Conor's natural fighting weight is Lightweight division at 155lbs where he has to cut about 12lbs of his normal weight to compete. The fact that he has to cut over 20lbs to make 145 is already so strenuous that many don't believe he'll ever make it back to that weight again. I think he will do it once more, even if he dies trying (hell he looks almost dead at FW weigh ins lol). Conor is definitely very skilled guy (at least with his mouth) but so far has proven unimpressive against fighters in his true weight class. Even a journeyman like Nate

    • +MrFPSDude …. Cutting down is better for the cardio though, Conor has way more endurance at 145, I think he underestimated how tired he would get fighting with more muscle like he did vs Nate last time… It was a lesson for him … Just hours away from the card, this is gonna be a good one…

  37. 1:502:00: Notice McGregor slips up in a sense. He's speaking; "…I have my training camp and pressur…….preparation." It seems like he almost said pressure instead of preparation. I understand there lingers a tremendous amount of pressure on both sides of this bout but that's true for any fight. HAVE TOTAL CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF, brother. Have complete confidence for total domination. I love watching any competition, it's all well and good. But Conor doesn't seem to be completely aware of where he stands hype-wise at this moment, or maybe he's consciously negligent, or whatever. You're coming off a big fuckin' loss homie. Not a win: A fucking loss on the books, on the record, and certainly stamped down. Personally I'm indifferent on who wins, but, to me, it's mildly unsettling to bark like a big dog when your most recent moment in the octagon was tapping those fingers slap-down-steady on the mat. Nate Diaz is a great fighter, and he's also tremendously retarded. Solid fighter though. Conor McGregor talks and keeps talking…which is fine.. If that's what he needs to do within his own game-plan to help push himself to where he wants to go. Only back up your talk this time or the media will tear you down after this. Your image in the UFC will be incredibly stricken if you take another L. Good luck to both fighters this Saturday because at the end of the day, they're both bomb-ass fighters in their own right. Tough motherfuckers.

  39. "I whooped his ass till I couldn't whoop his ass no more.." TRANSLATION: "I gave it everything I had and it wasn't enough."
    Truth is though if you check the online metrics you'll see the first round was nearly a dead tie..that took a bigger toll on Conor than it did Nate obviously. The second round was not even close. Nate out struck Conor long before the infamous left that ended it. In other words, Nate was winning that round before he finished Conor. Numbers don't lie….Conor is a delusional narcissist.

    • +Frisco Frisco IDK. Check out the stats here http://www.fightmetric.com/fight-details/4ace70bff9debdfb Some say the lop sided numbers in favor of Nate for the second round represent what happened after the left but they show that Nate landed about 30 more significant strikes than Conor in the 2nd & threw almost 50 more. Even if those were all after the stunning left it put puts them at a near tie prior to it. I don't think Nate more than 30 significant strikes in that last 30 seconds.

    • +Brandon Gauthier I do hate Conor….not as a fighter, as a person. I think he's arrogant, obnoxious, narcissistic. Did he not (in all seriousness) say in this interview that he feels HE is responsible for the UFC selling for 4billion dollars?!?! How can you not hate a guy who says something like that & actually believes it? The career he had prior to UFC196 will effectively end Saturday night and not because of his skills, or because of the haters, or because of the UFC. Because of his own pride, immaturity and big mouth. You can take a bum out of the gutter but if he doesn't remember where he's from and bites the hand that feeds him he won't stay out of it long

    • if you just don't like him and the first time was luck for diaz then allow diaz to win again and stop making up bs about the first round. I'm noticing the most of you needed anybody to beat mcgregor to talk shit. He wouldn't have gotten credit had he beat lesnar on roids at 196. Give it a rest and stfu. Conor dominated the first round, Nate is just a heavyweight when he's walking around. Mcgregor is a little guy and u guys are hyping up someone just because he choked out a little dude. Nate diaz like you are jealous pussies

    • +evil priest If you're too stupid to find the fight metrics for ufc 196 by yourself I can give you the link. You want it…It was an even fight until Nate flipped the switch. Conor's the one making shit up & you're the one eating it. You want the link or can you find it yourself? Or do you just prefer being an ignorant troll? 🙂

  41. He says he got his ass whipped for most of the fight. With his special logic I suppose he got his ass whipped for most of the fight with Chad then? For longer even, pretty much until the very end of the 2nd round

  42. I've watched this sport for about 12 years now…. you are out of your mind if you think Diaz has a chance, he just isn't smart enough to go toe to toe with a man who has spared with a mirror image fighter for the last however many months. This mother fucker intentionally pushed back the fight from ufc 200 until now because he wasn't ready… and it completely went over everyone's head. Nate Diaz hasn't even mastered the english language, it will be a complete slaughter.

  44. All of you are fags talking shit about either fighter. I love Connor, he can be cocky and entertaining but truly is very humble. Go watch the video when he's around his family, nicest guy ever. Nate is inhuman and is a fucking tank. Give his opponent brass knuckles… It wouldn't make a difference, he shuts off that pet of his brain that tells him he's rocked, and I LOVE every interview with him. Both of these guys are amazing interviews, amazing people, Connor gives respect to Nate and vice versa. During the first fight pre fight press conference, Connor said some shit to Nate and Nate comes back with "Fuuuuuuck youuuuuu I don't give Fuuuuuck," and Connor was loving it, like good shit someone isn't being a pussy. There's huge mutual respect between eachother. So you maggots can relax and just watch the fucking fight; it will be one of the most interesting fights in my lifetime, at least to me.

  45. All of you are fags talking shit about either fighter. I love Connor, he can be cocky and entertaining but truly is very humble. Go watch the video when he's around his family, nicest guy ever. Nate is inhuman and is a fucking tank. Give his opponent brass knuckles… It wouldn't make a difference, he shuts off that pet of his brain that tells him he's rocked, and I LOVE every interview with him. Both of these guys are amazing interviews, amazing people, Connor gives respect to Nate and vice versa.

    • I like Conor McGregor too but I like Nate Diaz 2 I also think the US was the better man when all that hype in the first fight was going on and Connor was talking all that b***** because he's paid by the company so they kicked his ass like he rightfully should

    • +MrFPSDude​ Meaning he's fought the guy once so his stand up approach will be more varied. You're just speaking as a biased McGregor hater, is it not possible for him to change up his game? He isn't fucking retarded. Honestly I don't really have a problem with him insulting their height because he's my height. Nate is a typical 6 foot downs syndrome long face looking ass. He's an actual tall person unlike McGregor, Aldo, Faber etc

    • Right but you said you think he will come in more dangerous, Im just asking you what that means. More varied how? I'm guessing you have something in mind or else you wouldn't have stated it. Oh and you're the one who said you wanted to see the tall guy folded for comments on height lol. Meanwhile Conor is the absolute worst offender of that. You lumped McGregor with Aldo, Faber to imply they are on the same level vs the big Nate lolol. Conor and Nate are by far more comparable in size than Conor is with the 145's. You sound like a Conor fanboy more than anything else and a Nate hater with comments about how he looks lolol.

    • +MrFPSDude he legit talks like retard, I never liked him. I like watching strikers, not people who eat shit for half the fight to wait until their opponent is gassed then tap them out. Lame as fuck. Just my opinion.

      As for him being more dangerous, I mean maybe he'll pick his shots better than before first off lol. You're wrong though, I'm not a fanboy of any fighter. Conor isnt untouchable obviously but y'all sure as hell seem to think Nate Diaz is. I'm on a strikers side because I want to see him get ktfo for entertainment purposes lol. I can't roast someone for how they look? Lol

    • I don't know what fight you saw but Nate didn't eat shit for half the fight lololol. You must just hate Nate lol. I'm not a Nate fan and I don't like Conor but the facts speak for themselves. By the way Nate is a striker, that is his style and he is not even all that great in his own division which is 155 where he is at best a Journeyman. Nate loses to all the elite fighters. This is why I keep saying Conor really isn't much because against fighters his size and weight he got destroyed. Conor is a natural lightweight whether he wants to believe it or not. He has to emaciate himself to be at 145 where he is massive against everyone in there. Conor was choked out by a journeyman fighter who was not even in fighting shape. What can he come up with in these three months that will miraculously make him more dangerous. Hit harder? He hit Nate with everything he had and nothing. Is he bringing an Anvil? His only chance I guess is if Nate doesn't take him down (which might happen, Nate loves toe to toe striking) where Conor definitely has the advantage. But Conor has pretty much shown that anyone can take him down, big small, tall he is a breeze to take down IF you can take that punch of his. Which he is skilled enough that no matter who you are he will hit you with that big left. Ask Nate, he was hit 3x with it lol

  46. I think it's hilarious that he doesn't consider GSP on his level, especially since GSP is one of (if not the greatest) MMA fighters ever. McGreggor is such a cocky, arrogant little asshole. He's also delirious to think that not even GSP is "on his level". GSP has fought much better, bigger name fighters than McGreggor has. What a joke. I can't wait for Diaz to prove to Mcasshole and his fanboys, that the first ass whooping wasn't just a "fluke".

  48. This guy is such a fucken clown. If he could he would remove a rib just so he could suck his own dick. What an embarrassment. Win or lose I will be rooting for Nate Diaz. I can't stand this shit talker. Fucken peasant.

  50. This fool needs to accept the Fact he will never beat Nate, he has a long long way to go too get that good! All of his ball licking fans need to recognize that Fact! Conner is just that, "a Con", a money milking wannabe, that deep down, is a frail pussy! Just listen to the dipshit, he is his best fan. Nate is going to waste him this time. His punches dont to shit to Nate. Con-mans chin is weak and Nate knows it. This should be a great beatdown! The 209! slaps on Ireland! Conor is a fn joke fighter, but a good buisnessman

    • Nate is honestly the biggest tank I've ever seen. Even the commentators are always like "WOW HE JUST BUSTED UP NATES FACE…. but in the Diaz world that means absolutely nothing." You need to give Connor some credit though. I love both Connor and Nate. I'm rooting for Connor because I just love him when he's at his cockiest, but if Nate wins then his barely intelligible shit talk and truth bombs are fucking great as well. Can't wait for this fight bro

    • His problem is that Nate is inhuman and is literally the TX from Terminator. Connor can take a punch too but nothing near like Diaz. I have a hunch Connor will win because the Connor legit has psychosis about fighting but so does Nate… Nate will simply push the pain away and keep going in spectacular fashion, even physically if his body can't move properly, he'll just say fuck it and MAKE it move. I love both of these guys and I can't wait!!!!

    • Nate is legit the TX from the Terminator series. I don't understand how he cannot get rocked from anything. You could fight him with a tire iron and he'd be counter striking you and still win with no real damage. Guarantee you they made a titanium skull for him and had it fitted into his head.

    • Well you're the only one with that opinion bro. I just got shivers up my spine thinking about the war that we will witness. Connor taking a loss like that put him into insane overdrive, motherfucker has 2 houses for his training partners hahahahaha

  52. I get that with a greater public profile, coming off a loss and with more being on the line now, Conor is generally more stern, but I kinda miss the young Irish kid that had not a care in the world and could joke at every press conference. Not just to intimidate, but just for the banter.
    Still, it takes some balls to continue to bet on himself like that. After all, all these future business plans only work out as long as he continues to win.

  54. Well, he was a crazy brat badmouthing everyone before being smashed and finished by Diaz.
    Like he was the greatest fighter ever.
    Then everybody was able to see that this guy has a tendency to gas and once gassed he becomes a pretty predictable fighter with a lot less mobility and trying to count only on the power of his left hand.
    So there's a big difference between the picture he's always trying to paint of himself and the actual fighter.
    A big difference.
    In his words? A super hero.
    Reality? A good fighter. One of the best standing.

    • Natural lightweight sure, still not a fake. He made the weight and beat the man. His loss to nate was also a great fight. Nate seems to respect him. how is he fake for fighting at FW ?
      Nate fights at LW and has missed weight by 5 LBS on a FULL CAMP,so you can make the argument that he's a natural WW but i don't see you calling him fake +MrFPSDude

    • +bojack335 I believe him to be a fake because he touts himself as the greatest fighter. He compares himself to the likes of GSP. Heuses the humble brag approach to say "people have compared me to Muhammad Ali and I appreciate that but no" If he really had the respect he claims he'd never repeat such utter nonsense. All on the basis of wins primarily through superior size and strength. More specifically, one pucnch. The worst Lightweight would destroy Demitrious johnson who is arguably the best p4p. He has yet to prove greatness against anyone. Valid champion? Absolutel. True Champion? Not by a longshot

    • +Mr Murphy Murphy Aww, did I offend you with my opinion of your hero Conor? lol I know you are part of the circle jerk to his pictures but nobody's a fool for their opinions! lololol Maybe my comments hurt your butt?

  56. like you said, you dominated him in round one. You caught him with so called KO punches and your opponent never went down. Also, the bigger man caught you with with one good punch and you crumbled. Me, I would take you down and pound the fuck out of you, forget the submission, I'd bleed you.

  58. The key thing he said is that he prepared for a 5 round fight going 0 to 100 for 5 mins with 1 mins rest. I think his endurance will be much different. Shot selection. Pace. Mentality. This should be an awesome fight!!

  60. conor comparing nate diaz too Homer doesn't make too much sense. Because he rolls with punches. hrs also got a good shoulder roll nate diaz's defense is much better after he has a full camp he gets hit less and luke I said rolls with the punches like a pro.

    • +Christopher Briscoe I don't think anybody in the UFC is very likable especially nowadays. A lot of fans don't give much of a shit about how likable the person is they just like the audacity and spirit of the person. Shit I hate Nates attitude too tbh he tends to showboat DURING the fight instead of before it. I feel like half the people on here who really hate McGregor are still salty about Aldo.

    • +Christian Warren I don't mind people brag a little bit. I don't mind if you will have a positive attitude about their abilities. If they didn't have a positive view of their abilities they probably go in the cage and get their ass all the time. What I don't like is the decibel at which he brags about himself, and that's what I said in the first place. As far as Nate Diaz bragging when he gets in the cage or what he's really doing is promising people. The only reason he does that is because that's the way he grew up. That's the way I grew up to. You're supposed to put your opponent so that they get so pissed off they do something stupid. As far as other people not having likeable personality is concerned Kama fighters in the UFC run the whole gamut of personality types. There are many talents fighters in the UFC, but none of them speaks as both fully of themselves as Conor McGregor, and I think we can both agree on that. I like this guy at first, but what I wanted to see was the proof in the pudding. What really bothers me is when I started discussing Conor McGregor on Google+ and all of his fans were extremely insulting, and work big noting this guy without any reservations. He hadn't even done anything yet and people were already talking about him like he was the second coming of Christ.

    • Nah nah you got it right the first time. He should have took that damn gum out. I don't give a shit if it is an exercise for his jaw or not. Not like that bastard is doing squats while giving the interview. That was just unprofessional Eurotrash bullshit.

    • yup, 200 was a bit if a let down. the fights were rather flat, Jon Jones funked up , Brock went in juiced. DC played it safe. Connor was exiled because he was too "demanding" even though the main card and the Co main didn't even attend the press conference that Connor wasn't at.

      I think it's true that dana unfortunately is a business man rather than a people man.

      he wants the money. Connor ( and a lot of fighters bring a lot to the table) and all Connor wanted was a break, considering certain shit went down eg his training partner beating a guy then the guy dies, and also the fact that he wants to train as much as he can to ensure he's in shape

      hypac by dana, I've seen it before with him. the Jon Jones coke incident, he said " if u get caught doing drugs your out! "

      – then Jones gets caught however he's allowed to fight because it's in his contract.

      I don't care what drugs people do, as long as theyre not to enhance your fighting ability ( PED'S)

      I'm looking forward to this fight

      I predict a unanimous decision to Connor,

      or an early stoppage foe Connor,

      but if it goes to the later rounds Diaz is in his element

    • +Sylvi batwoman
      thats partially true.
      everyone loses if connor loses this time
      including nate.
      he;s been fighting all his life for crumbs .
      fck the pride.its nt gonna put food on is table.
      u shd have listen to the message nate sent to cowboy cerone a month ago.
      he makes more money if he loses

    • +gidmanone ive listened to the interview. he stated that fighters should be asking/getting the money they deserve for the fight and not make statements like they will fight for free. If money was everything for the Diaz brothers, Nick Diaz would readily take the fight against Woodley as nick was likely goin to have a 7 fig payday but he refused cause he thought it wasnt interesting enough, maybe
      Yes money is the important factor for them but not by selling their integrity or fooling the fans. Diaz brothers keep it real in every aspect and thats why we love them.

  62. Conor is gonna be another animal in this fight. He's taking it very very seriously. Nate is so good though as well…idk what's gonna happen. I cant' wait for it. Routing for Conor, he definitely has what it takes but may the best man win.
