I really like Conor as a fighter, but does anyone think he really have a chance against Aldo?
They keep saying they want to make a sport, yet all they do is making it a fight promotion. They should have clear rules on how fighters are allowed to trained before a fight weeks out.

Yet all Dana does is yap about how AKA and others have stone age training methods, but he does nothing about it. They could all take a page out of Conor's book and not spar like morons, cause that takes its toll on the body.


Anyway as much as i'm looking forward to Conor vs Aldo, i'm more excited for Lawler vs Mcdonald, that's going to be fight of the night for sure.

Aldo vs Conor will probably end in under 2 rounds, while i see the former go at least 4.








P.S: sad about Machida, his body is clearly failing him. He doesn't even look as ripped as he did when he first entered the division.

The organization is supposed to tell the fighters how they are supposed to train and enforce this with rules? Do you hear yourself?

I'm not saying year around, i'm saying that a few weeks before the fight they should put a ban on sparing. Like Conor said, it won't improve your fighting ability it will just get you injured.

How do you ban sparing? 24/7 monitoring?

Fighters are different, what works for Connor maybe doesn't work for others.

What you're saying is just silly, Az.

I know it sounds radical, but you don't need to go that far. To enforce the rule you only need to put steep sanctions on fighters that get injured 2 weeks before the match, and i'm willing to bet the injuries and canceled bouts that we keep having lately will be toned down a lot.

Anyway who do you have on Rory vs Robbie?

AZ i know you mean well and you care about the sport but some of your posts are just so cringe worthy...

Do you know how easy it is to break a rib? Have you ever done anything remotely close to training "MMA"? In Grappling all it takes is your body in the wrong position and your opponent coming at you wrong, it happens ALL THE TIME accidentally. There is nothing the UFC or anyone can do to stop it, its part of the sport. And this is only ONE of the many common injuries, it is a contact sport it happens.

Monitor the fighter on how they train or sanction fighters that have to pull out? Please.

^ I think it's good he decides to pull out. Even if its a bruise, having an injured rib is no joke, let alone having it in a title fight

Jonas "Speed" Bilharinho (6-0 Jungle Fight current FW champ)

The guy Aldo brought in to mimic Connor, from his style even down to the way he wear his hair. I think if Conor loses to Mendes they should bring in Jonas Bilharinho to fight Conor next.

conor is a really down to earth guy if you look past the ric flair gimmick.

he deserves this outcome considering how this division had 0 spotlight before he came along, if this ppv comes near a million, I'll say he's easily ufc's biggest star.

there's a strong rumour floating around that conor had a messed up MCL that needs surgery, much respect if it's true.

I would not say Mendes dominated McGregor at all. First round he took a spinning back kick to the liver and was winded from then on. He was able to take McGregor down on occasion, but wasnt able to dominate like he should have been. His elbows were not very effective besides the cut, and holding the irishman down winded him further. Meanwhile the standup game was clearly McGregor's and he was able to pick shots oh a whim.

There is debate on whether or not the stoppage was too fast, but Mendes was out after that left straight. His eyes rolled back and he collapsed and was unable to defend himself.

Hes more of a cassius clay rather a ric flair

stand up wasn't clearly mcgregors, but i was impressed with his chin. he got thrown around so easily, chad mendes clearly won the 2 rounds until the end. I was fine with the stoppage, since chad was defending like a bitch.

and he definitely adopted the ric flair gimmick.

I'll be surprised if jose aldo doesn't beat him.

we must have watched different fights. First round was close, points wise mendes probably took it for take downs. You cant say he won the second because he didnt even finish the second.

ric flair was a cheater.

McGregor's got the gift of gab, much like ali.

I'm obviously talking about the promos and expensive suits/flaunting wealth.

don't talk like you know ric flair if you don't think he has the gift of gab


edit:

i'm saying he was winning the 2nd round until the last 10 seconds, unfortunately in #rnb you have to point out such obvious things.

was a sting fan so ric flair was no beuno.

as a fighter myself its impossible for me to say that Mendes ever had the upper hand.

His ground game was to keep busy enough to have it not stand back up. Stand-up wise Mcgregor dictated pace, determined position of the fighters and landed far more shots. he was in complete control on the feet, and was more composed on the ground than I would have thought.

chad landed far more shots than I expected, but credit to conor for having a great chin. I expected more from conor because of his massive advantage in reach and stand up being his only real strength. I'll give him credit for escaping that choke in the 2nd round, really well done. Maybe dominated is a strong word, but there's no doubt in my mind that mendes had those 2 rounds in the bag until the final seconds of the 2nd round.

anyways, now there's no big fights to give a shit about anymore until cormier gustafsson where mb and I settle our bet

the only upcoming main event I'm interested in is dillashaw barao, but that fight is so big they put it on free tv

i miss having fedor fights to look forward to.

and sakuraba vs gracie fights aswell.

The lawler fight was dope, was one of the best brawls I have seen probably since griffin-bonnar. That fight truly could have went either way
