    Might not get the battle of wits some wanted :56:

    Diaz reacting to McGregor the same way they all do. A blabbering idiot with * patter.

    He knows what this is. He said before that in between all the bullshit from now til the fight he might get about a 3 day fight camp. It's a circus show. He'd fight a * elephant if they paid him.

    Imagine getting zero pre-season then playing Malmo in a champions league qualifier after they'd been training like mad men for 8 weeks. It's impossible.

    Plus. McGregor's on steroids. They all are :smiley-laughing002:

    Enough with the football comparisons :smiley-laughing002:

    Fighters should be ready to fight. McGregor is a shining example to everyone on the roster. Train hard and turn up. Diaz knew he was first choice if RDA was to get an injury. He also knew that 50% of McGregor's scheduled opponents have pulled out before the fight. The Diaz brothers are also known for their excellent cardio.

    I like Nate, he's one of my favourite fighters. However, I laughed when he called out McGregor after the Johnson win and I'll laugh now. It is a complete mismatch and he will be embarrassed in there Saturday week.

    That's not being unkind to Diaz either, because I think he could maybe give RDA a run for his money if he trained properly. The vast majority of fighters McGregor's weight are not on the same planet when it comes to fighting and skill.

    It's me being a complete tool - she referred to fighting at UFC 200 not 200lbs :52: too much skipping through the press conference

    What press conference though? I didn't hear anything about Punk in that conference?

    Punk broke his back or some * anyway. McGregor would have fought through a broken back. These guys need to quit pussying out of fights.

    CM, in this instance, meant Conor McGregor.

    They know he's not ready. He just told us he's not ready. Regardless whether you think he should be. In any case he doesn't belong in this fight on his best day.

    Let's don't pretend this is anything other than what it is, a safe bet for McGregor and the UFC.
