Reigning from beautiful Stockton, California, 31-year-old Nate Diaz is a bad dude that already handed Conor McGregor, 28, a butt-whipping during UFC 196 on March 5, 2016. Late in the second round Nate was able to lock-up Conor in a rear-naked for a submission and the win in their first meeting. Conor had been dolling out punishment in a bloody first round of that fight which saw Nate withstand a barrage of punches. WATCH NATE DIAZ VS. CONOR MCGREGOR ONLINE HERE.
The tale of the tape explains a little bit about how Nate beat Conor in their first meeting despite being the underdog. At 6 feet tall, Nate is stronger, longer and has a bigger reach than his shorter opponent Conor. From Dublin, Ireland, Conor stands 5’9″ and normally fights at about 155 pounds but will be going up to 170 pounds in this fight where he is again a favorite.
Nate was a last minute replacement for injured Rafael dos Anjos who was supposed to battle Conor in UFC 196. Nate took it on the chin and bad from Conor in their first meeting. After a blood-bath in the first round, a scratched-up Nate came back to win the first fight. The press conference for this rematch ended with water bottles being thrown along with some choice words so this fight is sure to be ten times more exciting.
