think cain wins the main of 188 within 2 rds

I hope he does but he's not fought in almost forever so could go either way.

That Cain v Verdum fight reminded me a lot of Tyson v Buster Douglas.

 

Cain went in totally unprepared and gave Verdum no respect and Verdum done the business.Even before a punch landed on Cain I thought the looked wobbly and a rookie mistake(or desperation) at the end to spear himself into Verdum and get his kneck take.Gods performance by Verdum but very bad by Cain.

 

That Yair looks a prospect though very exciting fight his was but overall I thought it was quite a poor night last week's Fight Night was better.

I think she has the best striking in the whole of mma including the men.She is just so technically good, like a female Condit.I was shouting at the tv wanting the ref to stop it earlier.

She's a killer like. Brutal but so clinical with it.

Machida is finished at the elite level he just can't handle these guys power anymore.As soon as it goes to the floor he is finished.

 

 

Nice roundhouse kick finish by Santos in his fight though.Overall poor card though imo.

 

Only two week to Aldo(or Mendes if Aldo does not make it) v Connor and Lawler v MacDonald.Then next again week Ufc Glasgow can't wait.

aye apart from the couple kos nothin too spectacular the timothy bradley fight was controversial if anyone seen it lol the ref stopped the fight 10 seconds early when bradley was about to be KO after wooping vargas for almost the whole fight the ref thought the 10 second warning was the bell for end of the fight

Well aldo is out so mcgregor v mendes.

 

I suspect mendes will try to take him down at every opportunity. I hope mcgregor sparks him out cold.

 

Then we get mcgregor v also.

That him def out heard it was only slight bruising to the rib on Saturday.Still think it will be a very tough fight with Mini Mendes(as Connor calls him) though.

I always have my doubts before people have been taken deep in fights.Sure Connor has looked impressive but until he has really been tested I will always have doubts.

having looked at recent champs hardly any of them have defended it more than 5 times even if conor wins title i doubt he will run the division for a decade or something like what some of the fans who have bought into the hype might think all it takes is one submission or clean strike and the fights over at the top level some rookie fans forget that

That's another thing with him he leaves his chin out there too be hit.Yes he has looked elusive but as you said it only takes that one hit and Mendes can bang but of course so can Connor.Really looking forward to this match up.a one thing I def think even if the injury is really bad for Aldo,Conner def got into that guys mind.

McGregor 'allegedly' needs to drop 28-30lbs before fight on sat!!!

 

Even by weight cutting standards that's a huge amount. It's not that I think he won't do it, I have little doubt he will make weight. However, stepping in sat he should be massive compared to mendes.

 

That combined with his reach and length, think gives him 'potentially' a very big advantage.

The biggest weigh-in ufc history. So big having in the arena as opposed to function room,

 

Numbers are through the roof already for this.

 

The ufc must be desperate for mcgregor win. He is a huge cash cow particularly when you consider, historically lower weight classes struggle for numbers in past.

 

He also allegedly want to bet his PPV cut on his victory with ufc.

Connor looks like he has to starve himself to make weight his face is so gaunt.Mendes looks like he just walks around at that weight.

Read the other week that despite being ranked the pound for pound best that Aldo is the poorest drawing Champion in Ufc history.So yeah Dana must be desperate for Connor to win but even Mendes would sell far more than Aldo.

Yeah I agree. A lot more than starving himself, he will, have have dehydrated amongst a few other things. Crazy what put body through.

 

Will be interesting to see if advantage for either one.

 

McGregor will be massive tomorrow in comparison. Wouldn't surprise me if had 20lbs by time step in tomorrow.

 

Did the crowd through something at mendes?

 

Also I suspect mcgrego right won't/can't hang about that weight much longer. I think if gets belt he probably fights Aldo next and if wins both. Will vacate belt and jump straight in for a tune up fight at lw and then title. Obviously based on principal he wins his fights.

 

Lawler v macdonald should be a good match up as well. Though can't see past macdonald as think he will be more aggressive than first time met.

Rory always looks a complete psycho to me.If he wasn't doing mmma he would be chopping folk up and storing them in the fridge.

Championship fights you need to be on weight, the pound over is done away with.

 

Assume rule in effect as interim belt.

Heard on Joe Rogan podcast that they need to actually come in on weight now.

 

Conor looks emaciated.  He'll be properly hydrated and weight heavier tomorrow though. He's going to destroy Mendes I think.

Pretty sure only title fights need to be on weight as thatch, brown, Garcia and a number others yesterday were all the pound over at weigh in yesterday.

Would love to know what Conor weighs on fight night.

 

Reckon he belongs at 155 in the not too distant future.

 

Tonight is undoubtedly his toughest fight to date. Can't wait. Really hope he gets the victory in style.

Think he has said himself he wants to clear out the division and then move up.
