You're clearly too caught up in your feelings over this. Intentionally misinterpreting, splitting up the reply down to sentences to remove context, and straight ignoring statements that don't fit your angle. It's not the first time you've done this either. You trot this crap out anytime anyone says they don't like your favorite fighters.

For your sake, I hope your passion for MM pays off someday.

Lmao you're not the person who should be saying something about trying to fit an angle. No one is buying your shit dude.

I watched that extended preview... GSP ain't gonna beat Bisping.

He can jab and shoot for takedowns all he wants, but Bisping is a big boy with good boxing and decent takedown defence.

I think GSP catches a beating.

Here's hoping he pisses hot 24 hours before the event and Rockhold steps in and crushes Bisping, and then goes to get that ass beat by Whittaker.

Whittaker is the future of the division.

He's on a 7 fight win streak with to back wins over Jacare and Romero, which is especially impressive considering he was down two rounds with a fucked up leg against Romero of all people and came back to win the last three.

If he beats the winner of Bisping/GSP and Rockhold, he's gotta be an all time Top 5 great at MW.

Isn't that just on slow-mo?

I don't think too highly of Bisping. 50 year old Hendo gave him a run for his money, he got lucky that Andy goofed up and didn't finish him properly.

But hey, we'll see I guess. Still going with GSP.

RDA wants his fight with Lawler to be an interim title fight.

For real. Woodley fought 2 months ago but because he might be out until next year, RDA thinks an interim title is necessary.

Don't blame him for asking but it'd be ridiculous if the UFC went along with it.

Really? Anythings prossible with the UFC. If a title unification fight means more potential buys then they will do it.

And please guys dont judge a fighter thats out of fight shape and is doing some lame PR for the fight. Its a tough fight but Georgie will be our MW champion.

Looks like Conor is starting the hype train for the Tony Ferguson fight. Had a feeling this would be the direction they would go with instead of Nate Trilogy

This guy is the tackiest dude ever. I mean, I don't know what to expect from human cockfighting, but goddamn I hope Ferguson smashes his face in.

Conor is the definition of tacky (see: his tattoos and nearly all of his clothing choices that aren't suits), Tony is just corny.
Oh he is for sure tacky I don't disagree.

But I think Tony falls into that category as well with some of the stuff he does. The whole shades down under the eyes thing is just something else.

For sure Tony is corny as hell though. I actually still like the guy and he cracks me up.

Tony has been bitching that Conor never mentions his name, suddenly he's the interim champ and Conor writes "Tony".

He can reference whatever he likes, that's 100% a Ferguson callout.
Yep Ferguson has said repeatedly "He won't even mention my name." That's why Conor's post says nothing but his name

He will always have Nate waiting.

If he beats Tony its the next fight to make unless they do Aldo vs Conor in Ireland.
Yep I've been expecting Conor to take the Tony fight over the Nate one for a bit now. The Tony fight they can hype up as Champion vs Champion. In other words, the only time the Tony fight makes any sense from a $$$ standpoint is while he has a "belt" on him. Without a title he is no draw at all (as we can see from the PPV buy rate from him vs Lee)

Thing is the Nate fight is always a money fight no matter what. No belt needs to be on the line at all. Conor could lose the title and him vs Nate would still do big business just to see who wins the best out of 3. No need to push that fight right now

Nate has beat him once and came close the second time. He's not the easier fight.

Tony is.
We'll find out... Maybe Nate's just a tough matchup for Conor, but he hasn't been active, and he hasn't even been a top lightweight for awhile. Tony has a lot of his same attributes. Tall, lanky, tough chin, nice ground game, tons of cardio. Plus he's got some weird shit and creative striking of his own to match Conor's. Conor could run into the same problems and more against Ferguson.

Only thing that worries me about Ferguson is he looks so hittable with that chin in the air.
