Nate Diaz isn’t ruling out an upset.
Although Conor McGregor would enter a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. as a huge underdog, Diaz explained this week on “CSN Fights” that he thinks the UFC champion would have a “puncher’s chance” against the boxing legend.
Diaz, who has fought McGregor inside the octagon twice (winning once and losing once), doesn’t sound all that convinced that The Notorious would pull off a victory. That said, he’s giving McGregor more of a chance than most, as the belief among many fight pundits — and Vegas, apparently — is that Mayweather would have his way.
Of course, this is all contingent on the superfight actually happening.
