Establish The Jab
Not only was McGregor constantly looking for the knockout in the first bout, but he was also too dependent on his left hand. Diaz, despite typically eating a lot of shots, is a very technically sound boxer, and his defense is usually on point. Because of that, McGregor will have to mix it up and that begins with establishing the jab. The “Notorious” one should look to find his range, and begin peppering Diaz with his jab before throwing the left hand behind it to hopefully catch the Stockton native. If McGregor once again attempts to lead with his left, Diaz will likely see it coming and swat it away.
