Conor McGregor Plans To “Pound Out” Nate Diaz

0

Conor McGregor isn’t concerned with the jiu-jitsu game of Nate Diaz.

McGregor, the reigning UFC featherweight champion, will move all the way up to welterweight to face Diaz this Saturday night at UFC 196 in the main event.

During an interview on “UFC Tonight” Wednesday, McGregor offered up his thoughts on how the bout will go down. Remember, “Notorious” has earned himself quite the moniker for being able to accurately forecast fight finishes.

“His jiu-jitsu is overrated. I see opportunities to pass his guard. I’ll bang it out and I’ll keep it on the feet. When he goes down, he rolls out to get out, I’ll pass his guard, mount him, pound him out or look for the choke.”
