UFC welterweight fighter Nate Diaz, a BJJ Black Belt under Cesar Gracie, certainly has the advantage (“on paper”) if the fight goes to the ground. And unlike Rafael Dod Anjos for instance, is extremely dangerous off of his back. He is 6′ 0″ tall and has a 76″ reach, both of which are 3″ advantages over Conor McGregor. Also has 11 Professional Submissions and 4 knockouts in his 18 wins. He is listed as a Boxer and BJJ fighter, and is known for his ability to get into fighters heads with his “F the world” attitude, and approach to fighting.
Here Gilbert Melendez breaks down the keys to victory for both fighters in the upcoming UFC 196 clash.
