Nate might have done a couple of triathlons for charity, im sure most fighters do the same kind of thing. Hes also known for drinking and smoking weed while in training.
You cant say Conor and Diaz are both natural welters. Bisping (170), is a similar shape/height to Diaz for example.
It was a massive plus for Diaz to have the fight at 170, hes naturally bigger, and comfortable at that weight. It killed Conor going up to 170 tho, and he was even 3lb under at the weigh in. It was a big mistake for him to not make the fight at welter the first time, then again, it sounds like he just wants to make a few mill then fuck off. He knows hell never go skint if he doesnt fight again.
Hes beat who hes needed to. He beat a 10 year unbeaten world champion in 13 seconds. He went up 2 weights, which is madness, especially in the time frame, and won the first round. You cant ask more of the guy than that. His talk is probably his biggest asset, but his skill level and speed is ridiculous. If he went to a proper camp, trained properly with the right spars and fought smarter, hed be unstoppable, but just not at 170.
170 is welterweight 155 is lightweight conner didn't go up to welterweight nore did Nate. Conner kept the weight on knowing he only had to cut weight to 155 instead of the usual 145 the only reason they fought a welter was so neither of them had to cut weight, they both got on the scales at their walking around weight Nate was only 1lb heavier than him.
Bisping is a former Light heavyweight 205 who now fights at Middleweight 185 who walks around over 200 not really comparable!
Nate is tall but skinny they are both natural 155ers
