    DIaz will have a full camp this time, I can only see a second victory for him.

    I think Mcgregor should have fought Edgar first.

    I guess when a striker gets outstruck by a grappler who doesn't want to see a rematch??

    I'd hardly call Diaz a grappler(although he has awesome grappling). He wants to stand and trade shots, he only really grapples when other people start it.

    Well yeah I sort of agree, but I didn't feel like adding any nuance to my throwaway comment. Diaz often gets considered a grappler because he's a black belt and his striking looks kind of awkward, doesn't have one punch power and doesn't really include kicks. I agree that both Diaz brothers have very underrated boxing.

    The point I was making is that Diaz beat Connor at his own game, and has an extra element to his own skill set that he didn't even bother to utilize until Connor got knocked so silly that he thought it would be a good idea to try and take Nate down.

    I just don't see the point in this rematch. The only way Connor wins is if this happens to be the fight in which Nate's chin finally weakens.

    All this Diaz business has made me want to re-watch TUF5 which was the first or second season I actually watched as it came out. It is hilarious how retarded everyone there is, how are they even adults.

    So far they've caused a horse accident and Nate has tried to start a fight because someone wrote "suck it team pulver" on one of the walls.
