Video: Conor McGregor details prediction for finishing Nate Diaz with a punch that ‘will ping him clean’

By Russell Ess - March 1, 2016

Check out this interview done after the UFC 196 press conference with UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor. It was an exciting and very entertaining press conference including McGregor and Nate Diaz where Diaz threw some heavy accusations of “The Notorious” being a steroid user.

McGregor went on to talk about the steroid allegations. “It’s absolutely ridiculous. The most tested fighter in 2015, I was, on the roster so, I am very big against steroids. I have lambasted everyone that has been caught for steroids, my previous opponents have been caught and I have butchered them for everything they have wore for taking steroids. So, and then the fact that his two teammates took steroids and were caught so, I pay no attention to it. It was ridiculous.”

McGregor goes into detail on how he will finish Diaz saying that “He’s a hit and pull fighter, he hits and pulls, hits and pulls and plods as well. I just think he’s too predictable in everything he does. He’s in a set pattern and he neglects other disciplines and it’s hampered them, it’s hampered the Diaz brothers progression as a martial artist. I feel his body will be ripped to shreds. It’s a soft frame. I feel the left uppercut will be a nice one you know, the long range is an illusion. I feel my left uppercut will ping him clean.”
