I liked the smack talk early but just over it, the Aldo fight still peaks my interest though I'd rather see frankie dethrone him. The Aldo fight was a one in million chance and could see a jds Cain scenereo yet. Time will tellHave said many times I dont like the bloke but respect where respect is due...he did catch Aldo in 13 seconds and that...well that was unreal.
Im not sure if the Conor train has been derailed. I mean, seeing him lose kinda puts him back into the pack...personally felt for him after the Nate loss. It may of even got him more fans
That vid doesn't work, not for me anyway.Edit: that link didnt work - go from this Article
Apart from the over used Rocky quote this is a pretty well put together little clip, all the shots look really fresh and crisp.
Excited to see Conor back at 145, he's still unstoppable there
I think Mendes is his toughest opponents in the division for sure.If he gets through Edgar & wins a rematch against Aldo, there is not much left for him at 145.
However I would like to see him face Mendes again with a full camp, also Holloway & Lamas.
This is the fight to make. Both guys have called for it before and there is some heat behind it. A win for Diaz gives him a 3 fight win streak over the champ at 145, the former champ at 155 and a streaking contender in Johnson. A win for Pettis gives him a win over the once again relevant Diaz and snaps his disappointing losing streak.Conor's always going to pull a crowd but I'm surprised the UFC isn't keen to take advantage of Nate's elevated popularity right now and have him fight someone else like Pettis.
the MMA fighting article I read this morning said it was at 170 lol.Wait, surely its not McGregor vs Diaz again? Whats the point? They literally just fought.
It'll be at 155, so what happens to the 145 lb class? Edgar vs Aldo for the no.1 challenger spot? Surely not.
And what's the point of this fight? It's not like beating Diaz at 155 gives him the right to challenge Dos Anjos for the belt anymore than he already does. If they want him to legitimise himself in the 155 fight the guy who's name i cant pronounce that's on that huge streak.
McGregor vs Diaz 2 is just silly so close together.
I was being sarcastic with the efficient with energy comment.. although I would favour mcgregor in a rematch, even at 170.Will be good to see McGregor lose to Diaz again. I don't really care to see this fight though. You couldn't beat Diaz when he had 11 days to prepare. How are you going to beat him when he gets a full camp? Both guys have other interesting fights they could be in too.
Fighting smarter and being more efficient with his energy seems to be what everyone thinks will make a difference. I don't. McGregor is the perfect opponent for Diaz to look good against in victory. I thought McGregor would have used his kicks more against Diaz. Those who said his kicks are just distractions for the left hand were proven correct. He's not a great kicker, especially with low kicks and he's not going to use takedowns to disrupt Diaz's momentum. He's going to box with Diaz again and get beat again. Cool.
u kidding?hey enough of the Journo buisness he is the UFC b*tch,
