In just two weeks we get Hendricks, Lawler, Gil, Pettis, Browne and Faber
MMA bout to bless us for the next two months
Conor has been calling out the FW division for being slow and too traditional with movement.. does anyone really see Conor beating Frankie last night? Frankie's chin is all-time I don't see Conor testing it. Frankie's movement threw Cub way off made Cub look like a deer in headlights.
I'd love to see a Conor Frankie battle or even Conor Mendes/Lamas.. I can't wait to see Conor take on a wrestler.
yeah i used to agree with that dana white statement but frankie made cub look like a can. people thought frankie won the first two rounds of the jose fight. i think this is a different frankie and the ufc can make just as much money doing frankie/jose & conor/mendes
No way I see UFC making as much money doing Aldo/Frankie and Conor/Mendes as they would doing Aldo/Conor. UFC 156 with Aldo/Edgar, Rashad/Lil Nog, BigFoot/Reem, Fitch/Maia, and a lot of other recognizable fighters like TWood, Benavidez, Uncle Creepy, and Dunham only got 330k ppv buys. Aldo/Conor without all the other big names on their card probably does 250k-300k by itself. And the event will sellout regardless of where its at. Its a sellout in Brazil, Ireland, and even Vegas cause the Brazilians and Irish will travel to see the fight. They hype behind Conor is huge right now and ppl either wanna see him win or get knocked out. Plus I think Mendes beats Conor and a huge potential payday for UFC is gone.
ya got my rounds mixed up. i thought cub was the #1 contender before frankie mauled him. i think mendes is a nightmare match up for frankie and would hate to see him get knocked off late in his career.
i guess mcgregor will get the shot if/when he beats siver but sooner or later he'll have to fight a wrestler.
That's your opinion, which is fine. Frankie will grind you out while Conor will look to pick you apart then finish you with KO power. That's all it comes down to, for me
yeah frankie isn't exciting in my opinion but he could hominick aldo while conor will probably get picked apart
Rankings are definitely not the be all when it comes to MMA/boxing, just used for something you can reference. Most of the time we're going to get proper matchups based on rankings but exceptions will always occur. Conor fits the mold of the exception...
But again, I do think Frankie is the most deserving, just like many have said, I wouldn't blame the UFC for making Conor Aldo before Frankie Aldo II. The money would be insane
