Chandler v Oliviera #1 contender fight.Has Oliviera really done enough for a title shot?
Looked great v Ferguson and beat Lee but his other wins haven't really been against the top dudes

I like this but I kind of think Gaejthe is being hard done by a bitChandler v Oliviera #1 contender fight.
Winner fights Dustin for belt.
Gaethje v McGregor
Hooker v Diaz
Ferguson v Felder
That's got nothing to do with anything. I say Hooker was way too worried about the takedown and didn't keep his hands up.Chandler was primed looked to have a huge sweat punching hard in a serious warm up
Hooker was very casual light shadow boxing he started slow and tentative
Haha what.It happens. That's the beauty of the sport, if Khabib doesn't want to fight Chandler or Poirier who is red hot right now and stay retired fair play to him. It's a shame but that's his decision.
As for Conor he'll be back. I'm sort of happy as a Conor fan as it takes away that Manny fight now and Conor has to stay in the UFC which as much as hardcore fans don't like it, is better for the company with the attention and eyes he brings to the sport.
Conor/Nate 3, Conor/Dustin 3 would make the UFC truckloads of money as well and those options are open.
Another note I think Conor's chin is gone or a issue. It's been Nate, Floyd, Khabib and now Dustin that have rocked him or KO'd him, and as he gets older against bigger men at 155 he's struggling with it.
Agree Top . Hooker defensive and worried .That's got nothing to do with anything. I say Hooker was way too worried about the takedown and didn't keep his hands up.
If Chandler can finish top guys with his hands and then wrestle as well. Problem for everyone
Liked his presser also . I’ve been a Bellator fan for years and there is only a small difference and it’s not heart / skills or desire . Great first up against Dan on the biggest stage .Michael Chandler holy smokes what a magnificent way to get going
gee I hope they have 259 & 260 at Etihad the place is miles better than the apex and the other arena, bit of atmosphere for big fights
Yea it's only big interesting match ups for Connor now rather than title hunting after this. He was looking good but it went pear shaped for him way too quickly to take him too seriously any more.Alongside Masvidal he is my favourite fighter but even I can see it's coming to an end for him now. 1 win in 5 years (against old man Cerrone) is just not convincing. If he had tapped out or something it still would be a big loss but to be knocked out for the first time in his career...
I don't think there's any coming back from it. He did say he wants to fight again in 2021. I think the only fights left that make sense are probably Diaz, Poirier, and hopefully Masvidal. He should give it up at the end of the year.
Nah, Gaethje got stopped by Poirier and fought for a title like what 3 fights later? All Conor has to do is win one fight and whoever has the belt will call his name. Too many $ to not fight himYea it's only big interesting match ups for Connor now rather than title hunting after this. He was looking good but it went pear shaped for him way too quickly to take him too seriously any more.
Yep McGregor ducked right into the uppercut that ko'ed himHaha what.
He got dropped by Diaz at 170, Khabib dropped him but it was hardly a soft chin ko. Just a bloody nice punch and McGregor still defended immediately.
One of the greatest of all time boxers manages to punch him? Wow, what evidence...
I mean seriously, I'm not a Conor fan boy but that's just stupid, he dipped his head into an uppercut which is what dropped him, pretty sure most people who take that shot go down especially the way it was fired from Poirier. Connected flush as fu**.
Volkanovski has been dropped against Holloway and Mendes, should he retire due to his weak chin?
He hit him so flush in the forehead I can't believe he didn't break his ******* hand. Conor dipped perfectly into it, that shot puts out the entire roster except maybe Diaz, Ferguson, Kattar and a couple moreYep McGregor ducked right into the uppercut that ko'ed him
Not sure if Dustin saw him ducking or got a bit lucky but it was beautiful
Would have dropped anyone

Even those guys are in alot of trouble with that hit tooHe hit him so flush in the forehead I can't believe he didn't break his ******* hand. Conor dipped perfectly into it, that shot puts out the entire roster except maybe Diaz, Ferguson, Kattar and a couple more
It's more the 1 win in 5 years than the performance yesterday although that really didn't help either.Come on mate seriously.
He's 32, not really taken much damage in his career and has openly talked about fighting alot.
Losing to Dustin Poirier isn't the slightest bit equated to retirement. Put him against Ferguson and he still smokes him
