Don't forget he also took hits from Gaethje as well and finished him.Poirer is very hittable. Gets hit 30+ times a round, all well and good taking some shots from Hooker but if Conor lands he will drop him again. I got Conor in the first 3 rounds
Re streaming: fu** the ufc. At least 9 PPV a year are pretty sh*t. Of course people arent paying $600 a year in ppv fees. Put a better product together if you want premium pay. No one minds paying for a mcgregor card but Nunes/tattoo chick and some DWTNCS alumni on main card? LOL
He's still the best pure striker in the division.I wouldn't say far superior at all. Connor hasn't fought anyone in his division really for 5 years apart from Khabib.
Is he though? He's never fought Gaethje, he hasn't fought this Poirier and he didn't so any damage to Khabib ( not that anyone does)He's still the best pure striker in the division.
Maybe his speed has slowed slightly with time off but until we see it it's just speculation. He took out Cowboy quicker and easier than anyone, his performance v Khabib wasn't that bad. No worse than Poirer or Gaethje so it isn't like he's fallen off a cliff
I hope we see the Conor that fought Alvarez, whether we do, we'll have to wait and see. Haven't heard anything about his training tbh
All his fights at 170 were 155 for all intents and purposes. They just didn't cut weightIs he though? He's never fought Gaethje, he hasn't fought this Poirier and he didn't so any damage to Khabib ( not that anyone does)
Hasn't fought Hooker or Chandler. In fact hes never really fought anyone at 155. The cowboy fight he was 170 and above.
He has 2 career fights at 155, we aren't really sure where he fits at this division.
You guys are in big trouble!

It ill be interesting to see how McGregor goes without the crowds and massive build up.McGregor is too dynamic in rounds 1 & 2 for Poirier to keep this fight on the feet.
He'll have circle away from McGregor's left or go for take downs/clinch on the fence.
You allow McGregor to get comfortable and he'll implement what he wants to do.
Exactly, it's been weirdly quiet for a McGregor fight, maybe this really is a new McGregor. Doesn't wanna be the sh*t talker anymore wants earn back his fighting respect.It ill be interesting to see how McGregor goes without the crowds and massive build up.
Most fighters have been mentally broken before the fights with him and get picked off early.
yeah normally there would have ben a media tour and 3 or 4 full press conferencesExactly, it's been weirdly quiet for a McGregor fight, maybe this really is a new McGregor. Doesn't wanna be the sh*t talker anymore wants earn back his fighting respect.
Crazy it's 2 weeks from now and if you're a casual you wouldn't even know it.
