And in the rematch, even though he won– and I provided him the rematch, he won the rematch fair and square– but still he was absolutely gassed because, and it was getting close. The longer the fight went, the more Nate Diaz was getting back into the battle. If you remember, the first round was a white wash. The first round was Conor all over him.

That’s amazing, that’s terrific, however that does not get you fit for a fight. You understand what you didn’t see? It was him out on the streets running. Running! You have actually got to run! That is the finest thing ever for cardio. That is the best thing ever for a fight. MMA or boxing, you need to run. Of course, no one likes to run. Running’s a discomfort in the ass, running draws. Running is lonely […] However you’ve got to run. I do not know, possibly he did run, however from exactly what I’ve seen on social networks, I didn’t see him out there doing any running.”
