Loyal fans and analysts try to find a reason for the loss of Conor McGregor at UFC 196 against Diaz. For these fans and loyal followers they need to believe the UFC superstar is still undestructable and the weight gain and decision to move up the weight division was a big mistake.
It doesn’t matter what they say as the fight clearly showed Conor was faster delivering more accurate blows that turned Diaz face into a big smashed tomato with blood all over him.
John Connor, McGregor’s strength and conditioning coach also doesn’t think the weight had any factor, the “Notorious” loss had little to nothing to do with his weight, and that McGregor weighed pretty much what he always does.
Connor also added “Conor fought at the weight that he walks around at – always,” — (transcribed by Seamus Raferty of PunditArena.com).
