I can't see Conor winning if it's at 170 again. I mean, doesn't Diaz want another shot at RDA though? That's why I just assumed it would be at 155. Fighting at 170 again is just going to suit Diaz a lot more.

 

It's all about the skrilla homie

Haha, true! Conor sells a fight like no other. Some of the stuff the pair of them were saying to each other leading up to the fight were god damn hilarious! 

Either way, Uncle Dana will be happy!

I would love to see Cowboy Cerrone fight McGregor. They have a bit of a rivalry. Not sure if you heard it, but Cowboy said he would beat the lucky charms out of McGregor if they fought ^_^

IMHO that fight would end up the same as the Diaz fight....loss for McGillicutty

Well my guesses really aren't on target right now but nothing I'd like to see more than Connor kicking Diaz's arse but we shall see. I was wrong last time!! And for Robbie.

But 1st lets see how Cowboy gets on and how long Johnsons fight lasts lol

Guys do you think MMA is rigged? Half of my mates think it is. I personally don't think the actual fights are rigged but I feel the pre-fight hysteria and drama is staged to hype up the fight and sell more pay per view packages.

It is kinda funny that Conor McGregor is criticising Maywheather for running away from his opponents,but he is nowhere different from him.
Conor is definetely the more skilled fighter that Nate,but Nate was pre injured,so a fully fit Nate Diaz would have been a different match though. What I think makes life for Nate tough is that he gets cuts like his brother very easily.

Great fight,Conor won more rounds in my opinion,but Conor was lucky that Nate got the succesful takedown in the last seconds.

Now,Jose Aldo vs McGregor will be fun to watch,even though I think that Conors size and speed will fuck Aldo up.

Nah I'd never tink the bif MMA fights were rigged. Mighta been some dodgy decisions now n then but get that in every sport. Look at the current Olympics eh!

As for yje pre match hype well thats always happened. Look at boxing. Alis fights were just a hype fest. The fighters like Connor are a god send for the UFC. They're walking adverts. The more spiel and agro they give each other, winding each other up, getting under their skins, throwing shit about etc the more press time they get. The more adverts they sell. The more money they make from endorsements etc. 'People' dont want to go see some magnolia characters,

But gotta say he deserved that last night. Shame he didn't put him away so Diaz couldn't flap his lips saying he deserved the win. Offered him Part III at a lower weight! Cant see Diaz making the weight.

That Johnson fight did'nt last long! Guys got a punch. Want to see him rearrange Cormiers face the smug git.

UFC 205

We4ll time for another Commor fight. This time against Alvarez for the lightweight title.

It should be a cracker but I'll give it to Connor,

Also womens Strawweight fifgt between Joanna Jedrzejczyk in her 4th title defence wirh Karolina Kowalkiewicz. I'd still ho a round with the lovely Rowdy any day.

Welterweight title holder Tyron Woodley making 1st defence to number 2 Stephen Thompson. Both say that GSP should be 1st contender if he makes a return so that woulf be interesting.

Should be a excellent fight night with other fights invluding :

 Chris Weidman vs Yoel Romero

 Kelvin Gastelum vs Cowboy Cerrone

 Cupcake Tate vs  Raquel Pennington

So its a fridge full of Guinness and make sure the Volcano is warmed up.

Excellent card all night. Well worth staying up all night for.

Alvarez looked nervous when he came out of the dressing room.

This guys not some wannabe. Hes a damned good fighter but Conor proved he could do it.

He decked Alvares 3 times in the 1st round!

Missed UFC207 last night because I thought it was on tonight!!

But sounds like most of the fights were decided by the judges which is a sahame. Apart from Rowdy of course which I think alot of people expected would happen with her not in fighting mode for a year. Maybe shes got a new film that needed extra media attention?

Yea was a weak night for Ufc.

Watching Ronda get her smug face smashed in within 48 seconds was pleasing though.

I used to think just like you when I saw her but then I realized all she was doing was what all those WWE wrestlers did and was playing a character, The likes of her and  Conner give a big shot in the arm for MMA

But theres been a few I still dont like eg GSP,S, Matt Hughes, Robbie Lawler, Tim Sylvia.

I miss fighters with big characters bit theres not many about now to make you dislike them. Theyre more like professional athletes.

Mate no.. she is not playing a character at all. She is a selfish bitch who only cares about her social status measured by fame. I have analysed her for years now and trust me... it's not an act. I'm glad she got put in her place too.. bang average fighter.. overhyped by the Americans... who overhype all their own. Plus she is nothing liKe Conor. Conor came straight back after losing to Diaz like a true fighter... Ronda was soo mentally damaged because her bubble had burst she took her bitchy face and went into hiding and let all of her fans down... becauze she doesnt give a flying fuck. She is the school bully who finally got what she deserved. Judging by the lead up to the Nunes fight it seems she hasn't learned a fuvking thing either... which is a shame man.

I meant shes like Connor cause of her big character and media pull. If it wasn;t for these big characters trhe sport would be nothing like it is today.. The crows either want to see them win or have their faces rearranged.

But yes I think the loss did her head in. She never expected to lose. But I think thats whats pumped into sportspeoples heads tho. Boy sure shes what I call a bully. Matt Hughes was a classic school jock bully.

ot very busy on UFC front till 208 on Feb 11
