Conor McGregor lost to Nate Diaz at UFC 196 via a stunning rear-naked choke but that fact doesn't seem to phase McGregor's jiu-jitsu coach ahead of the rematch.

"I feel like if the fight goes to the ground, he'll dominate on the ground too," Dillon Danis said on an episode of UFC Embedded.

"We've been working our asses off. Especially (Conor). There's a reason he is where he is," he said. "You're going to see that when the fight comes."

This would be a surprising turn of events considering how much better on the ground Diaz was, but it has been quite some time since the rematch, and this is MMA... anything could happen!

We will see McGregor and Diaz face off again this Saturday at UFC 202 in Las Vegas.
