His important attack is remarkable but in terms of effectiveness both fighters has almost the same percentage.

8 1st round finishes

Low percentage in KO/TKO compared to Conor

But very remarkable in submissions

Overall takedowns are mostly half connected to the opponents.

But very remarkable in the field of submissions and passes.

When defending in total takedowns it’s below the average level.

Key Factor

We all know that Diaz is the underdog here but his last fights prove that he’s worth it to be the new challenger for the Champion. Considering his advantage in striking reach, Nate must be very careful to Conor’s strking ability and an immediate response of counter attack will be fatal to McGregor. Diaz must use his advantage in reach to give an opening to his grappling then an immediate keylock must implement to force Conor for submission, but it will not be easy for him. Nate must improve his movements to stand with the Champion’s rhythm in footwork and this will eventually increase the effectiveness of his striking power and speed as well as a great opening for grappling then force him to submission. This is the only chance to win over McGregor because in KO/TKO and decision will not be possible.
