im mad

 

the problem for me is that lets say jose beats him which most expect him to do, then what?

 

does he earn his way back by having to fight guys like chad, lamas, frankie, cub,.. guys that he should have fought in the first place...

 

or do they just let him earn his shot again by beating another lower guy?

 

its not so much his talking as it is the ufc trying to sell it

why does he annoy you?

idk i just don't like him.  And the fact he hasn't lost in 10 years doesn't help

The only guy that deserves a shot over McGregor is Frankie right now

 

Other than that, yeah I could see why people say he's being fast tracked to a title

i hope they pay siver good, they did my man dirty. Almost everyone knew he was put in there as a set up, I applaud him for going in there and not putting up w/ mcgregor's antics. About time mcgregor gets a shot a top tier fighter, but I would pit him in with mendes or Edgar (since mendes is already scheduled w/ lamas). Any of those fighters-- mendes, Edgar, lamas, Bermudaz-- would give him a difficult task.

Siver at 10 is laughable. Dustin is ok I guess. But who else to make him get a title shot already.

UFC and Conor are smart tho can't eem be mad. I just don't believe the hype yet, he hasn't fought enough of the top tier guys imo.
post #6671 of 41029
Aldo is gonna wash this clown, can't wait to see this hype train ended.

This.

He is the best thing to happen to the UFC in a long time. From the charisma to the striking.
post #6673 of 41029
Hate and love mcgregor. His bit is getting a bit old, but he's definitely adding more excitement to the division. Sucks that he's leapfrogging over Frankie, but fight makes sense monetary wise and fan friendly.

In a perfect situation, I'd prefer aldo to retain the belt and have him move to 155. Then maybe barao can move to 145 and it'll be awesome to see who can win the vacated belt.

Edit: iirc, ufc added siver at #10 after announcing mcgregor vs siver lol

Again, only Frankie is more deserving of a shot

 

Every other top contender had their chance already 

post #6676 of 41029
He said he wanted to slap Aldo but the only thing that stopped him was he didn't want to pay a fine. Aldo would've took his soul right after and sent him back to Ireland in a box.

The woman in the red dress was looking good.

Yall really take everything he says to heart :lol letting him Dustin Poirier yall

What you mean?

post #6681 of 41029
I think he's funny. He's also pretty smart. Is he competition for Aldo, probably not (but the UFC could do the same shenanigans boxing does).

I think part of the problem the UFC has is it sells the promotion and not the fighters enough. It would force some of these bums to speak up and promote themselves and the fights. Aldo will probably turn it up one level since he thinks Connor is a joke. It'll be interesting to see the promotion for their fight. It's not like they hate each other. Connor is the brash, up and coming contender. Aldo has been the king of the division for more than half a decade.

i remember you saying that youd like to see porier fight frankie

OK?

 

I would like to see all the top 5 guys fight each other :lol not sure what that has to do with anything anyway

post #6684 of 41029
porier was doo doo. I know he was popular in this thread but I never became a fan of his.

Sodium levels would be astronomical if Conor pulls an upset

Doo doo? OK. Sure, he didn't pan out to be a top contender but 8-3 in the UFC, only losses to Korean Zombie, Cub and Conor.. you being a little harsh

post #6687 of 41029
It was entertaining watching fs1 and cormier having to talk about jones in rehab and frankie about how someone else is getting the next title shot.

i gave cowboy the first round, and benson the last 2.

It all came down to that takedown.

As said it before, judges are scoring close fights differently now, seems more pride-like.

Im not mad at the decision, ben didn't loose any stock but damn did him slimey.

not really impressed with the conor fight, i mean its what we all expected....he looked great against subpar competition

LOL and him waiting for security to come before he stepped to aldo

got to see conors TD, looked good

conor did take more than a lucky few on the chin though...im not sure thats going to hold 5 rounds with Aldo.


"conor mcgregor did exactly what he had to do tonight"

we watching boxing matches now.

*EDIT*

poirier is solid, nothing great...the gap between him and the elite in the division is too far and wide, not closeable for the guy

Yeah, tbh he took care of business. Siver was a step down from Poirer. Conor displayed more than boxing though, like you said, take down defense looked adequate and also his kicks are on point. The variety he has and the angles are very nice

 

The win tonight really proved nothing for me

post #6690 of 41029

Aldo not flinchin for a sec, smiling while the clown acting like a jackass was :hat

 

Cerrone won that fight, don't care what anybody says, thigh punches and side push kicks to the thighs don't win u the fight
