Jon Anik discusses Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

Making predications for upcoming fights is what Jon Anik does regularly adding to his commentating duties.  With a Conor McGregor fight about to happen everybody is bringing  their A game.  Jon is no different.

“I’m going to say it here for the masses to hear. I will get the area code ‘209’ tattooed on the inside of my forearm, if Nate Diaz beats Conor McGregor,” he said on the Anik and Florian Podcast. “I got Conor in Round 1.”

 Anik’s main reason for being so confident  is the late notice replacement for McGregor.  Diaz has not had a full training camp and was actually training for a triathlon when he got the call to fight in 2 weeks.

“I got Conor McGregor, I got him by first round knockout or TKO,” he said. “I’m just not convinced, as much as you know I love these Diaz brothers, that Nate is in championship shape. And I think cardio has always been a big key to his style, to his success.”

“One thing you know about Conor McGregor, is that he is most definitely in championship condition. I think he’s the far more lethal striker.”

Jon Anik has done this before with the Ronda Rousey v Bethe Corria fight. He got out of the way of the gun on that fight but won’t be to upset if he has to endure some pain after the UFC 196 main event.

“I like the Diaz brothers, so I would actually be okay throwing that 209 on the forearm. But yes, I do think it’s a huge ask for Nate Diaz, so I will get my first tattoo of my life at 37-years-old if Conor McGregor loses Saturday.”

 According to the odds makers Diaz is currently a +410 underdog.  As of right now it looks like Anik will miss getting inked again.
