Conor McGregor gave the world a little preview into his fight against Nate Diaz Saturday night. Of course he did predictably predict that he would win, and did back it up with some reasons why, namely that Diaz is too predictable.
What the real reason for tuning in was was McGregor showing off a new move he has been honing, a capoeira style kick to the face that would make Holly Holm’s look like child’s play.
Even at half speed that thing looks quick and lethal. Although he won’t be fighting Conan O’Brien, he will be fighting a veteran in the MMA game, who one would think is a bit better equipped to handle the move.
Hopefully Diaz was tuning in, because both fighters will need all the help they can get for their match. The 27-year-old McGregor comes in with a record of 19-2, while the 30-year-old enters with a record of 18-10.
