He has the best shot against Nate, if he fights anybody.
post #9842 of 34275
True, I don't disagree

Just saying, hard to get excited to see a challenger coming off of a lost.

And that's why Nate makes the most sense out of the 3, if he fights at all.
He would have a better shot against him, but who knows.

Brah make no mistake. I'm trying to see someone wash Conor next month. I don't care who really.

In light of recent reports regarding the status of UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, UFC has received official medical confirmation from several doctors that Aldo did not suffer a broken rib. Following a review of the scans, it has been determined that the champion suffered a bone bruise to his rib and cartilage injury during training.

With this news, Aldo has expressed that he has every intention of facing Conor McGregor at UFC 189.

While Aldo has indicated that he will compete in Las Vegas on July 11, UFC has confirmed a contingency plan. No.1 featherweight contender Chad Mendes will face McGregor for the interim UFC featherweight championship in the event Aldo cannot compete.

UFC remains committed to delivering the featherweight and the welterweight championship fights at UFC 189 during UFC International Fight Week in Las Vegas.

Mendes gonna show up at the weigh ins after killing himself to make weight only for Aldo to be like, step back bro, I got this

post #9855 of 34275
Not sure why I'm starting to like connor. He annoyed me at first, but I find myself rooting for him against aldo.
post #9856 of 34275
Interim belt because a guy hurt his rib and might be out for like 2-3 months?

They are tripping over themselves to try to get gold around Conor's waist laugh.gif
post #9857 of 34275

This kinda works out for Aldo. If I'm him, I have people in my gym feeding fake stories to the media saying he's not fighting so McGregor starts focusing more on his wrestling and preparing for Mendes.

Plus if Aldo loses he has the rib excuse to fall back on

post #9859 of 34275
Which will make it that much easier to set up/sell a rematch.
post #9860 of 34275
There's nothing good about going into a fight where your opponent knows you have a bruised rib. Might as well put a bullseye on Aldo's ribcage mean.gif . Not feeling this situation at all.

Aldo will still win this fight

 

I wonder if the betting lines for Aldo will go lower

Glad to hear the fight is back on. Wonder if they will play this up in the upcoming promos. 

 

Looking forward to the Machida-Romero fight this weekend. While Machida got that work last time out I can see him winning this matchup with a KO if he's able to counter Romero who hasn't really beat anyone elite and is coming back from injury.

 

Amazing how they haven't really tried to cross promote the Lawler-McDonald fight. Really anticipating that one. Got Rory this time. Also don't want to see Lawler-Hendricks 3 so soon either lol.

post #9865 of 34275
So Silva/Story was supposed to be this weekend and was moved because of visa issues?

UFC having a TOUGH go these days.

Yup got screwed on some fights

Looks like no MMA in NY.

 

Anyone else see anything about McGregor having a bum knee that could require surgery after 189. From what I saw on Twitter, McGregor hurt his knee a few months ago grappling, and he's been getting stem cell injections or something the past few months for it. And its the same knee he tore up before.

Convenient timing for McGregor to release that info :lol

 

But I give him credit for not saying anything about it and not putting the fight into danger
