Gawd I love Nate Diaz, Stockton's finest.
That's Nick mang, Nate fighting GSP would be a badddd day for nate.
I remember when they were thinking about McGregor v. GSP before 196 and was thinking, "Huh, they really want Conor to die for a gigantic payday."
Hell I'd come out of retirement for 1/100th of what GSP's will make when he finally gives in. Watchu think about nurmagomedov? I like him but my friend pointed out, he's got like 0 stopping power with his fists..
Khabib is a MOTHERFUCKER when it comes to grappling and his hands while aren't sharp like a Mousasi or Dos Santos (imo some of the best mma boxers) he uses them effectively to get you in the clinch and maul people on the ground. He has power but, I'd rather him not be the, "wrestler who fell in love with his/her hands" like Dan Henderson or Ronda because he is so goddamn good at what he does.
Him vs. McG is an "easier" fight than Tony Ferguson imo, Feg is so unorthodox and hard to gameplan for; with McG he is pretty one dimensional and has a really good left hand and very good timing but, you don't fear the takedown or clinch with conor. It is that long bladed stance he uses which is why eddie had trouble with him (also goddammit eddie, don't stand and bang with McG) but Khabib is bigger height and size wise than conor so if he can evade that left for 7 minutes the fight is his.
