Conor McGregor's coach makes a big prediction ahead of Nate Diaz fight

Published 1 Comments

Conor McGregor suffered the most humiliating moment of his mixed martial arts career to date when he was forced to tap out in the middle of the octagon to Nate Diaz back at UFC 196 in Las Vegas earlier this year.

The March 5 encounter saw McGregor start off well against his American counterpart, dominating the first round and much of the second before getting gassed and eventually being put into that rear-naked choke that ended things.

The rematch between the two is coming up at UFC 202 later this year and McGregor's coach has made his prediction of how it will go.

According to a report from Bloody Elbow, John Kavanagh was taking part in a recent question and answer session on Periscope where he gave his two cents on McGregor vs Diaz II.

"Four," Kavanaugh simply said, when asked about his prediction on which round he thinks McGregor would be winning the fight.

In preparation for their August 20th rematch, The Notorious One has amped up his training, sparring with world champions in boxing and jiu-jitsu, as well as putting an extra emphasis on cardio. 

When asked where he thought McGregor went wrong in the first fight, Kavanagh was as clear as could be. His man got tired.

"Too many power shots, got tired," he stated bluntly.

If McGregor were to win in the fourth he would surely take it. He needs the W to get his career back on track as one of the UFC's biggest stars and he'll take any victory he can take over Diaz at this point.
