Crowd is so live. Would love to see how the crowd reacts if McGregor loses via KO

McCall by UD, Gunnar by sub, KoD by KO.

There hasn't been a better character than Conor since Chael. McGregor's bravado>

 

It's going to come crashing down real soon

I want to see him fight a true top 10. That's all I want. It's safe to say he's legit but I want to see him get a real test. The division is absolutely loaded with killers.

post #3402 of 41029
Gunnar Nelson is the real deal. Unheralded, but may be the better fight compared to KoD. Needs to tighten up standup defense, got wild against Santiago. Tapping Akhmedov is no joke.

Skill-wise, Conor may never break the top 5 in the division. 145 is ridiculously stacked.

But on star power alone, the kid can be one of the biggest personalities in the sport.

IMO Conor's bravado is rivaled by nobody in MMA. Can you imagine if he actually beats a top 5 guy? It's going to be off the charts. I'm not crowning him at all yet but he is promising no doubt.

 

Give him Diamond or Frankie next and let's see what happens

Definitely sells himself well as a charismatic heel. I find him to be vulnerable on the ground, if he's serious about tightening up for a title charge.

I think Poirier is a great match up for Conor at this point.

Highly ranked, very well rounded but i wouldn't consider him to be super dangerous in any particular facet of the game. Could see it playing out like the Swanson/Poirier fight.
post #3409 of 41029

That's the perfect next step up for Conor. Stylistically too, Christ that would be a match made in heaven.

Conor's take on Diamond as expected (Diamond is Cole Miller's training partner)

“I know he doesn't want to fight. He can pretend that he wants to fight, and send out little tweets about this and that,” McGregor continued. “Let's do it. One by one I want to take everyone out. If that's Dustin, no problem.”

 

Also, the card next Saturday on FOX is PPV status :eek

 

Lawler v Brown

Rumble v Nog

Guida v Bermudez

Thomson v Green

Masvidal v Crushicnk

post #3410 of 41029
That card is ridiculous.

Hopefully Rumble shows out like he did against Davis.

And i think Robbie is going to embarrass Brown.
post #3411 of 41029

ive easily written brown off before, not this time, still picking robbie to win

 

i just feel like we havent really seen brown against top level competition, we would have gotten a better look at him had alves not gotten injured and silva was in way over his head, dude got tired half way through the first round

 

speaking of which, just read that my dude pitbull is out with another injury :|  old news i know, just havent been keeping up

My dude Masvidal gets a win and you might have just found Cerrone an opponent.......?
post #3413 of 41029

I like Masvidal but I think Cowboy's next fight is against a top 5 opponent. They were all set to give him Khabib for a title eliminator until he blew out his knee. Now I think they have Cowboy wait for the winner of Thomson/Green or a possible rematch with the winner of Bendo/RDA.

 

IMO Cowboy should have to get by Bendo or RDA to get a title shot. Both of them dominated Cowboy. RDA is ranked below Cowboy too.

post #3414 of 41029
I just think Cerrone/Masvidal would be a damn good fight. Dangerous for Cowboy though.

I put the question mark in there because I knew it was a stretch.

But if Bobby Green gets Thompson after a win over Healy, then Masvidal getting Cerrone fresh off his Healy win shouldn't be that crazy if he beats Cruikshank.

More likely to be Josh, Green or Michael Johnson. Masvidal and Cruickshank are beasts but they haven't quite got the recognition or ranking.

I guess it will come down to availability though. Medical suspensions and whoever can stay healthy. etc.


Sad that pitbull got injured again seeing how good he looked last time out but my man Thatch is stepping in to replace him. That guy is a ******* DEMON!! mean.gif

Dustin Poerior is a good fight for him.

fight pass won't get a cent from me until they follow the wwe's business model and include every ppv available to stream live.
