I really didn't realize how much bigger Conor is than most of the division outside of Aldo. Both these guys kill themselves to make 145
Interesting to note that I don't think Norman and Conor get along
Unless his weight cuts get too difficult
Benson Henderson said something interesting about weight cuts because he wants to fight at 170
That change has not been decided yet, though. Henderson, 31, admits he comes from an old-school wrestling background where you try to cut as much weight as you possibly can so you can be bigger and stronger than your opponent. But there are reasons to believe that isn't always the best thing.
"The new school of thought is wrestle at your natural weight, fight at your natural weight," Henderson said. "It'll be an easier time. You don't have to worry cutting weight. You won't get tired. You'll be a little bit quicker, you'll be faster and [have] a little bit better agility against bigger opponents. We'll see. There's pros and cons to both."
I think the losses to Pettis and RDA might have changed Benson's mind about moving to 170 lbs. Before losing to Pettis he was talking about wanting a super fight with GSP at 170 lbs and if he won he would stay there. Then even after the Pettis fight there was talk about the RDA fight being his last at 155 before moving up.
Watching UFC Insider now that was on FS1, they showed footage of Cain cheering for DC during the fight, I was shocked the PPV broadcast didn't show Cain at all
I fully expect Cain and Jones to face off some day, hopefully soon. I have to imagine Cain heard what Jones said about him. Have to assume Cain wants to avenge the loss
To give McGregor credit, he seemed uncomfortable with that distinction. He explained on ESPN that Ali was a cultural icon who was an impact on the world outside of sports
Terrible comparison for anyone to even dare make
