If the Conor vs Masvidal on Fight Island rumors are true, I guess I get it from a business perspective, but I really don’t like that fight for Conor. Conor has no chance of being champ at 170. He probably won’t be champ at 155 ever again either, but at least he has a chance there.

I’ve never liked Conor at 170, never will. I don’t think Conor can knockout Jorge. I think Jorge will weather Conor’s storm through the first 7 minutes or so and then start teeing off on him when he gets tired during the final 2 minutes of the second round and it will be all downhill from there

The fight will make money, at the risk of hurting Conor’s sell appeal in future fights if he loses dramatically. I guess they could play the “hes not a true 170er” card if he gets TKO’d by Jorge

Really? I think Conor will beat Masvidal pretty soundly

I think Colby and Usman would have very little issue dominating Conor with wrestling and outlasting him with vastly superior cardio
i think conor spark colby in the first round.
colby like to mix wrestling and standup and his standup is vastly inferior to mcgregor.

usman is smarter, the only reason why he stand up against colby is because he know that the guy has literally pillow punches.

usman on the other hand will destroy conor unless for some unlucky punch, the nigerian was capable to lift and slam woodley at will, conor has even less chance than against khabib at 155.

what is the penalty for weed? are we talking jail or problems with the law or just a suspension from mma?

my dude kelvin love some mexican haze i guess...
Looks like it’s gonna be 9 months


I still think that he coulda been champ at 170 if he had his weight under control. He gave Woodley a good fight and that was Prime Woodley. Still a beast at 185 tho

OSP needs to start throwing more leather, just being backed against the fence all round so far.

OSP hurt Ben a couple times, almost had him out at the end of the fight, but in between those flurries he was WAY too inactive. Rothwell takes the split decision

Damn Smith just absorbed a big flurry from Glover

Wow Smith getting blasted in the 3rd

2-1 Glover going into the 4th but the 3rd was 10-8 for Glover. Surprised that Smith survived the round

This is the kind of beating that changes a guy forever. Smith absorbing insane punishment.

Another 10-8 round for Glover, it will take a MIRACLE comeback finish from Smith in the 5th
