    I didn't say total stats I said just about every stat showed it was a close fight which it obviously was and not the clear win you claim.
    I don't know about you being better at math but I do know you not great at the reading comprehension

    Ok
    Explain to me why he missed weight 5 lbs vs Rda? And if he had to cut the 5 lbs you think he woulda been equally as durable and if so why did he not bother to take the weight off

    I walk around at 185
    I fight at 168
    Do you think I’m more durable at 155 then I would be at 168?
    What don’t you understand about Diaz having more stamina and being more durable at 170 vs a smaller man?

    Do you also think khabib won’t be more durable and have more stamina at 170?

    Josh Thompson agrees that he’s not sure he could stop Diaz at 170. Says diaz would be a lot stronger at 170. If josh agrees with me that’s all the peace of mind I need.

    No Conor was struggling in the rematch because he doesn`t know how to peirce a high guard, Nate was gasing him by walking him down and would do so if he wasn`t drained making 155, Conor won the rematch by kicking Nate`s lead leg away whenever he put weight on it, Floyd used this rematch as the blueprint on how to gas Conor by walking him down, he also used a highh guard, Conor is a one track pony.

    That`s 3-2 that`s close, he was gassing again, his stamina is awful.

    I had McGregor winning the 2nd fight, 3-2. First two were easy to score for McGregor - 3 and 5 for Diaz. 4th weren't one-sided, but i feel like McGregor landed the better punches and won the fight winning that round.

    I do think - hypothetically - McGregor, pre-Floyd version, would win more decisively at 155 pounds. Diaz wouldn't be able to takedown McGregor, just like he couldn't at 170lb. And McGregor might have an advantage over Diaz at 155 compared to 170, as Diaz are the bigger man. But if McGregor can't hurt and stop Diaz inside the first two or three rounds at 155, he most likely gasses once again - giving Diaz a chance.
