How will this fight go? I think Pettis will use leg kicks early mixed with some fancy shit that will eventually land and he will finish Diaz in the 3rd.

He’s going to need to use a lot of leg kicks and be in good shape to last all three rounds.

Lol at finish Diaz

Josh finished him by TKO and Anthony is someone who can put the lights out on anyone.

His sparring footage in the UFC embedded lead up to 229 was some next level shit. His striking has gotten so much better as time has gone on, he’s learning fundamentals and that helps him set up the flashy combos.

Maybe pre USADA, but not today.

Finally two guys who rely on technique rather than strength. Nate by superior mental game

Diaz doesn't like lots of kicks...

It messes up his boxing game...

The formula is Dos Anjos...

Pettis.

Nate's been on the shelf too long. The Diaz Brothers hae never evolved their game.

Fully aware but judging on the shots Nate takes in other fights you can call that an exception 

 

Pettis could definitely win by decision but I dont see either being finished in this one

Pettis has never stalked anyone in his entire career. Let alone applied the pace that dos anjos put on Diaz

I see Nate  looking like Lieutenant Dan after this one. Pettis gonna smash his legs.

In saying this, Cowboy should have done this to Nate as well and got sucked into Nates shit talking.

Longtime Diaz fan(Pettis too) and majority of their careers I would have favored Diaz but Diaz has been out the game seemingly enjoying being full, where as Pettis has been actively fighting and seemingly much more hungry than Diaz..

 

Due to my belief that Nate is not as hungry as he once was, Pettis will take this fight

Nates a different animal than the rest of the MMA world. He is a fighter at heart and will beat Pettis regardless of the layoff.

Pettis just has to train his ass off until he's able to clear a 9 foot tube without coughing it up. Then he will know he is ready.
