Chad "#1 Contender" (again a joke that they rank him over Edgar in their division but only Edgar appears on the P4P list).

But when it was convenient, they had the #3 guy (McGregor) fighting for the belt.

I like Mendes. It hadn't even occured to me that he'd get picked because he might be a....."better" match up for Conor.

Then I started to see a few people mention it online, and when they made it an Interim title fight because one dude is out for maybe a month.....**** seems fishy.

UFC website officially ranks Frankie as the #1 contender and Chad #2 :lol

 

No matter what the underlying motives are, it's a damn farce. Frankie should be fighting, period

post #10023 of 34158
One thing I will say is it's business. I understood it when they picked Conor when they announced him getting the shot.

Chad and Conor have more history.

Frankie's problem is he's a respectable guy who other fighters respect.

That TUF season was terrible because of the mutual respect between he and BJ.

I think Conor has a bit of that for him as well. He expected Frankie to step in for Aldo.

They were selling Conor/Aldo as a bad blood fight and they can still do that with Mendes.

Pretty much impossible with Edgar.

Actions don't always speak louder than words laugh.gif

I could accept Conor getting the shot though. To pick Chad now makes no sense. Lamas has more history with McGregor if anything

****** Aldo :{

So aldo will lose his belt because of his injury? When he returns from injury will he get his belt back or does he have to fight the winner of Conor and Mendes?
post #10027 of 34158
Nah. He comes back and fights the winner of the Mendes/McGregor fight.

For the interim title doe mean.gif

For a dude Aldo just beat and another dude that only got a shot because they ran outta match ups.

Aldo will be back in what October?

They want a belt around Coner's waste so bad, even if it is a paper title eyes.gif

Damb, Jose's pulled out of 5 title dates

 

Wonder who has more out of Cain, Weidman and Aldo

post #10036 of 34158
Thank god he pulled out. Would've meant absolutely zero if Conor beat Aldo with a bad rib. Mendes vs MgGregor is still a great fight, and either Conor gets the **** kicked out of him and possibly his head knocked off his shoulders, OR he beats Mendes and proves himself as a true top contender for Aldo's belt. Sounds like a win-win to me laugh.gif

Nobody gonna give Conor any credit if he beats Mendes on two weeks notice. Be real :lol

post #10038 of 34158

Yeah Aldo has pulled out of a few title dates. When Cain pulls out of a fight, he's out for a year or longer not just a few months. And Weidman has pulled out of all his title defenses except for the Silva rematch. Machida fight was rescheduled for knee surgery and the Belfort fight was rescheduled cause he broke his hand and then rescheduled again cause of a rib injury.

 

But the whole Aldo situation is kinda sketchy to me. UFC and their doctor said it was just a bruise. Aldo's head coach said the Brazilian doctor said it was broken. Then yesterday or early today, ESPN had an article that said in it, the NSAC was requesting to see Aldo's medical documents, now Aldo is out of the fight.

Wikipedia lists Conor's reach as 74 inches.

Aldo's at 70.

Mendes at 66.

Cain's missed one title fight (defended title 4x)

 

Weidman's missed two title fights (defended title 3x)

 

Aldo's missed five title fights (defended title 7x)

 

I hope the real records come out either way

post #10041 of 34158

Weidman missed three title fights. After Weidman v Machida was made he pulled out cause he got surgery I think on both knees. Then with Belfort he pulled out once cause he broke his hand. Then it was rescheduled but he pulled out again cause of a rib injury. 

 

Cain doesn't really pull out of fights, he just gets hurt during fights or right after fights and need surgery which leads to long lay-offs. 

 

I wouldn't be shocked if in the future, Aldo or his head coach come out and say they didn't drop out of the fight but they were pulled from it. Starting a back and forth between them and Dana.

post #10042 of 34158
Bummed that the fight got scrapped and even more bummed frankie got passed over.

Whoever wins the interim will fight aldo and that's at least a year before frankie gets a crack at the title.
post #10043 of 34158
damn mendes my boy but... i think the GOAT can ko him. his reach and his boxing may be to much if chad dont play it smart.

The thing is, Frankie is clearly the #1 contender now. Winner of Mendes/MgGregor fights Aldo, Frankie gets that winner. As long as he wins whatever stay busy fight he gets, which is almost automatic because the 145 division drops off pretty steep after aldo, mendes and mcgregor. Oh, and he'll also get a full camp, unlike Chad. Frankie will be alright.

I'd rather see him get stomped, but I'll give him a little credit if it's a hard fought win.
post #10045 of 34158
conor winning is what's best for business
post #10046 of 34158
Aldo doesn't want to wear that crappy reebok uniform. In end smart move by Aldo, he's going to milk this thing a little bit longer and make more money. I can see him destroying Connor and walking out on the ufc
post #10047 of 34158
Chad has to fight smart.

He has to wrestle him because despite his power i don't like his chances on the feet.

That being said if he one shot flatines him that would be awesome laugh.gif

Is Rory/Robbie still the Co-main?? mean.gif

He can let his hands go after establishing the takedown. Fake takedowns, level changes, keep Connor guessing. Chad also has some underrated leg kicks, he nailed aldo with a few but Damm if they weren't powerful

Honestly I'd give him props. Chad is the real deal..it's a 2 week notice but Chad seems like the type of dude who trains year around and was ready for this, ufc prob contacted him asap when the news first broke with Aldo..it's not like Conor is gonna be more ready he's been training for Aldo not a wrestler like Chad.

If you're the most likely replacement in the biggest fight of the year, 100% you're staying in shape on the run up.
