Michael Johnson fight proves how good McGregor is

Michael Johnson dominated this past Saturday, Nate Diaz 2.0 dominated Michael Johnson in stand up when they fought and McGregor dominated Nate Diaz 2.0 in stand up (prior to gassed McGregor)

McGregor standup is at another level

Oh, you mean another level as in not as good. 

 

I thought you were going insane for a moment there.

WhyatEarp definitely IS Cole!!!

 

McGregor did not dominate Nate, Its well known Nate is a slow starter and done what he always does started picking McGregor apart from the second round. People talk about Conor gassing like its just one of those things but the fact he does gas should be picked up on like it does with any other fighter

Nate started real slow against Michael Johnson... So slow in fact he outlanded him 2-1 in the first round.

 

The only thing slow about Nate Diaz is his fans.

There is absolutely no comparison because of HOW Johnson fought Diaz.

Simply put he fought stupid,dumb as nails.He started ...OK but got worse and NOT because of Diaz but because he was just dumb.

Johnson looks good when he can control the distance because he is NOT good at determining how far or when to move in and how to move in,he moves in SLOPPY and often stands perfectly out of HIS reach but in his opponent's reach.

 

Point being that if Johnson had a clue,btw reminds of a very similar fight between Diaz and Cowboy where Cowboy looked like he could OWN Diaz but started to fight stupid.

I guess we have to give Diaz bros some credit,they often can get a fighter to fight stupid or careless,fighters need to keep their heads on straight.

 

It also says a lot about the lack of quality cornermen in the UFC ,i often see garbage coming out of cornermen mouths or they simply have nothing to offer their fighter and/or often just lie and tell them they are doing great as a form of encouragement.

 

Even more so is that Conor struggled both times versus Nate as we came close to seeing an identical repeat as fight #1 but this time Nate was the **** as he stood idle allowing Conor to recover.

 

Long winded point is that a lot has to do with mentality,it can often overcome lack of skills or sway a close fight.
