If McGregor has the foresight to match the bravado, he's addressing his wrestling and takedown defense in particular. Similar to Gustafsson training with a top-notch wrestler like Davis knowing the "Bones" fight was looming. Aldo, Mendes, and Frankie are all capable of putting "KoD" on his back. McGregor's only 2 losses are by submission, albeit much earlier in his career. Conor allegedly just received his brown belt in BJJ, but let's be honest, he's not out-grappling the likes of Aldo, Cub, Edgar, or Lamas.
Conor trains with Gunnar Nelson. I'm sure his grapling is A-OK

McGregor is everywhere. Dude is even on SportsCenter now. Everyone knows this should be an easy fight for him, although I think he needs to be careful of Siver's spinning back kick to the body, but I'm shocked that UFC hasn't tried promoting or building up Siver. At least try to make people believe that they're gonna see a competitive fight.

I watched McGregor on Sportscenter, dude was way too vanilla lol

 

I too am surprised at they're completely ignoring Siver

BTW, Ariel said yesterday that the McGregor fight was pretty much sold out in Boston. This is pretty impressive to me as the Patriots will be playing a home game a few miles away pretty much at the same time as the prelims. Boston must have some diehard fight fans

 

Sunday will be EPIC with football and UFC

The bigger question is Nick Diaz. That guy was awesome in the build up toward GSP/Diaz. He had so many great quotables.

The Diaz brothers are known for their speaking skills, have a reputation as bad boys, etc.

It's like the emphasis is Anderson coming back from injury, which is one of the storylines. But Diaz is coming back from "retirement" and is a former champion and WW top contender.

Read somewhere that a bunch of people from Ireland flew in just for the fight and bought up all the tickets. 

 

Looks like Silva is definitely ready for the Diaz fight. He knocked out his sparring partner.

We will not be getting Lawler Hendricks III thank God, instead we will get Matt Brown vs Hendricks in FEB :hat

 

We will also finally get the return of Brandon Thatch :hat vs Wonderboy Thompson

post #6463 of 41107

If Hendricks is fighting Brown, is Rory v Lombard still happening?

 

Edit: Although I'm glad we won't be getting Lawler v Hendricks 3, Hendricks might've screwed himself over. Even if he beats Brown, if Diaz beats Silva and he wants a title shot against Lawler he's getting it. Even Dana hinted that he'd like to see Diaz/Lawler 2.

probably not if Rory doesn't sign that fight, I think they only verbally agree to fight.

I'm almost certain Silva will stay at MW not move down to WW

 

Rory isn't going to wait until June or July to fight even if it's for the title, IMO. He was on the show with Ariel yesterday sounding like he wasn't going to wait around regardless. Lawler has been fighting like crazy so he doesn't want to fight until the summer

My fault

 

If Rory really gets screwed out of a title again, yikes. Diaz don't deserve a damn thing

With the UFC if you can sell a fight , you have a chance in getting a title shot

The WEC cards were always solid from top ti bottom.

Maybe there will be a finish. Should be an entertaining fight.

Thats what he said he did before the Jury fight. Before his match started he and one of his training partners/coaches started fighting backstage so it would help him start faster and get in the groove of things.

Getting boring

 

post #6479 of 41107
It just sucks that the focus is on the spectacle of McGregor less on the fight.

Aldo/McGregor would be hype. And probably a great introduction to Aldo for the mainstream.

I really haven't seen many moves from McGregor. Spin kick, high kick and a jab lol. JBJ has a multitude of moves thanks to the creativity generated from that white girl and Hennessy.

I'm looking forward to the fight card on Sunday. Definitely two interesting co mains. Hope the train doesn't derail.

I just wonder how all of those flashy moves would work against the legit of the legit opponents. If Dustin wasn't so emotionally invested, the fight could have played out a lot longer into later rounds, we would have seen how Conor's skill set looked

 

His movement though is what impresses me the most, it's really like water. Very nice to witness

 

Eventually opponents will stop being so bothered by Conor and make the match go into later rounds.. I do believe Conor has a vast arsenal of strikes though
