Rather not have the UFC get to the next level if this is the kind of crap we have to endure

 

Granted the weigh ins were crazy and electric, the lead up has been a joke. That's not how I personally prefer MMA

 

Crazy how different the UFC has become in only a handful of years. Feel like it was just yesterday that it was UFC 100 and it was already starting to teeter into the theatrical. But it still had the old guard in good form to keep the substance

 

With all of that said, rooting for Conor even though he's a maniac and weirdo for trying Faber. I legit felt for Faber, he had that hurt look on his face

That "next level" ship has long sailed

And the general American public don't really embrace these heel trolls like MMA fans do.

It's skewed anyway. What percentage of those fans at the weigh ins were Irish? Probably like 80% at least :lol

 

Don't get me wrong, I think it's incredible how the Irish have supported Conor but like Rusty said, I don't think it's the general American or international fans that have come out in herds to see Conor

Would love this.

 

Especially with how Dana has put Aldo under the bus over his hard on for McGregor. :{

Body = ready.

 

Chad taking home the fake belt tonight :hat

post #10299 of 34246

With the new drug policies of the UFC going into effect July 01, Aldo wasn't gonna make weight and so he made up an excuse.  McGregor might of made weight but he might suffer the consequences at UFC 189.  I think he cuts like 30lbs for his fights..  #Crazy

 

Mendes is gonna show the world that he's the real deal with a 2nd round knock out!

post #10300 of 34246

Brown vs Means might be the fight of the night!  #Brown

 

Thatch vs Nelson should be a good one as well...  #Thatch

The whole card is crazy

 

Apparently there's going to be changes to the broadcast as well

 

There's also another card tomorrow :lol

 

Masvidal, Waterson and Wonder Boy v Ellenberger, not bad

post #10302 of 34246
Body is ready for tonight! Anyone gonna order the card?? I rarely orded PPVs anymore but i'm gonna bite the bullet for this one and relax at home with some brews and enjoy it.

Faber clowning and explaining the altercation with Connor:

Hopefully, the UFC cakes off tonight. Sucks that their partner is Fox Sports and not Showtime/HBO/ESPN or the hype would be off the rails.

Conor always looking like a skeleton on weigh in day. Dude said he would be champ in 3 divisions :lol I think he'd get destroyed at 155 so he had better find a way to keep his walking weight down if he wants to have a long term career. I just don't think he survives at all if he goes up

post #10309 of 34246
Not a believer in McGregor, but then again i wasn't a believer in Weidman. So he's just gotta back it up.

Weidman was a relative unknown when he fought Silva the first time. In some respects, he still is (mainly blame the UFC marketing branch). However, many picked him to win against Silva. He presented a serious matchup issue for Anderson. He could wrestle and had solid striking. Chael Sonnen exposed Anderson's issues against a good/competent wrestler. Weidman was a legit competitor at the time of the matchup and probably the only real matchup the UFC could make at the time.

Siver exposed McGregor takedown defense. He didn't hold him down for long, which is probably a skill issue on Siver's part. Mendes truly presents a huge question mark for Connor. If Connor wins, the hype and money invested in him will grow. If he loses, he'll just become the new Chael Sonnen/Michael Bisping. A solid MMA fighter with great trash talking.

Siver was able to take Conor down a few times but at the same time Conor didn't seem all that interested in getting out of the way. He literally got up right away, in fact Fight Metric didn't credit Siver with a single take down.. which is curious.

 

Tonight Chad could take him down with ease of course but Conor will be weary for sure

post #10314 of 34246
I dislike both fighters, but my hatred for McLame runs deep.

So I got Mendes

Who is on the Conor war wagon doe? Come forth, I need to know who to throw shade at in case he gets KO'ed laugh.gif

You already know I been on with the boy from Ireland. That doesn't mean I think he won't lose though :lol I said Chad was a worse matchup than Aldo. Not necessarily a harder fight but Aldo was going to stand with Conor all night, which is what Conor wants obviously

 

What don't you like about Mendes though Rusty?

post #10317 of 34246
Nothing really. laugh.gif

I just dislike Faber and the entire Alpha Manlet Hunger Force. Their Podcast eyes.gif

Mendes is guilty by association I guess. He seems like the least lame one in the entire squad

After the Thursday press conference, I'm rooting for McGregor. Mendes came off like a natural douche. Connor has all of that braggadocio but it's all part of the presentation. He knows what he's doing.

Team Alpha Male, though they're very competent and produce a team of high-level competitors, can sometimes come across as jerks. I also didn't like the Bang Ludwig situation. And if I were T.J., I'd be looking wary of Faber. Eventually, he's going to have to fight Faber.
