Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz: Mystic Mac’s ‘Keys to Victory’ @ UFC 196 – Part 2
As for the Mystic Mac predictions, he feels a first round KO is in the cards. His ability to call the finish and how is frankly uncanny at this stage. In a recent interview with ‘MMAJunkie’, McGregor said “I feel his body will be ripped to shreds, it’s a soft frame……I feel the left uppercut will be a nice one, long-range is an illusion….I feel my left uppercut will ping him clean”. Here I will take a look at those few possibilities, along with other potential sequences and techniques that may come into play.
While the champion vs. champion superfight at UFC 196 is dead, MMA fans are still in for some fireworks, in and out of the cage.Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos (25-7 MMA, 14-5 UFC) was forced out of his title defense against featherweight champion Conor McGregor (19-2 MMA, 7-0 UFC) after suffering a broken foot.
With a host of fighters across multiple divisions offering to get in on the McGregor sweepstakes, Nate Diaz (18-10 MMA, 13-8 UFC) is the man stepping up to face the brash Irishman. Diaz is one of the most outspoken and controversial fighters in the UFC. His out of the cage trash talk and in-cage taunting is only rivaled by his brother Nick and by McGregor himself. In his most recent outing, Diaz put on an impressive striking display while outworking Michael Johnson for a unanimous decision win at UFC on FOX 17.
