“The Natural,” says that he had the bout scored the same way the majority of the judges did with McGregor winning three round to the two that Diaz had won.
While Couture says that the trilogy fight between Diaz and McGregor may not be the most appealing fight to make at the moment, “The Natural” says that Diaz can win the trilogy fight if he can get the fight to the ground.
“I think he’s gotta work on some takedown skills,” Couture said. “We know he’s solid on the ground and I think that’s still a glaring weakness for Conor. [Conor] did a great job of avoiding the takedowns especially in the third and fourth round when he was tired.”
