That’s right boys and girls, it’s time for another edition of The Downes Side! UFC 202 is on the schedule for this Saturday, and just when you thought Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz were acting too low key for their rematch, they’ve amped things up and it should get even more interesting from here until Saturday.
In the meantime, we’ll analyze that fight and a few others.
NEIL MAGNY VS. LORENZ LARKIN
We start in the welterweight division with Neil Magny and Lorenz Larkin. Since 2014, Neil Magny has won 10 of his 11 fights inside the Octagon. A long, rangy striker that controls the distance well, he’ll also mix in an occasional takedown to keep his opponent on edge. Since dropping down to welterweight, Larkin has won three of his last four fights. He’s coming off a split decision win over Jorge Masvidal in May.
