Diaz vs Pettis Betting Trends and Stats

- Nate Diaz hasn't fought since his 2016 decision loss to Conor McGregor.
- This will be Pettis' second fight in the welterweight division. His debut saw him score a second-round knockout win over Stephen Thompson in March.
- Pettis has fought as light as featherweight, while Diaz hasn't ever fought below lightweight. Diaz is taller (6'0" to 5'10") and has a pronounced reach advantage (76" to 72").
- Only 16 percent of Diaz's wins and 82 percent of his losses have come by decision. For Pettis those marks sit at 18 percent (wins) and 63 percent (losses).
- Anthony Pettis averages 2.9 significant strikes landed per minute and has never landed more than 80 in a single fight. Diaz averages 4.6 and has landed at least 150 twice in his last three fights.
- The two have identical 54 percent significant strike defense rates.

Diaz vs Pettis Prop Bet

- Anthony Pettis by points (+220) — His low significant strike output means he relies on landing single, powerful shots to finish his opponents. Diaz has only been finished by KO/TKO once in 30 pro fights though, and his last two bouts just saw him absorb 225 significant strikes from Conor McGregor without getting knocked out. This points to the potential that Pettis could be unlikely to finish Diaz, even if he does win the fight. Pettis is the slight favorite, so getting Pettis by points at long odds could bring some intriguing value.
