Conor McGregor’s camp had its say. Now it is Nate Diaz’s turn.
Ahead of the highly anticipated main event at UFC 202 on Saturday, Diaz’s camp has moved to Las Vegas for final preparations. It was during these sessions that Cesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu coach Randy Spence opened up about why he thinks Diaz once again will defeat McGregor in their rematch.
“This is fighting, anything can happen. We’re not stupid here, we know. But the odds are definitely in Nathan’s favor all the way around,” Spence said on Episode 3 of “UFC 202 Embedded.” “Conor is doing the right things — it just might not be enough.
“People think, ‘Oh, he’s really good because he’s mentally tough,’ which he is. Or ‘He’s really good because he’s in good shape.’ But I think people underplay the technical side — he’s a martial artist, not just an athlete. He still learns from Cesar and he’s really a student.”
