Holloway and Brandao. The same guys that suddenly became cans after McGregor beat them.
Are we going to pretend that Koch was never top 10 or the #1 contender....

Iceland has a secret technology that people don't even know about where you transfer dna cells to another person to upload specific traits and skills, sorta like the Matrix "I know Kung-Fu" upload.

The GOAT is coming in with Gunnar Nelson level Jiu Jitsu and will choke out Poirier like KZ did to him.

Jimmies will commence rustling and the GOAT will be champ before the end of the year.

Then he'll pop bottles with his peers. Is normal.

Only loss that Poirer has early in his career is Castillo who layed and prayed. Which is the only type of fighters Poirer has problems with.

Again, Poirer has never lost to a striker, only great grapplers who take him down and control him. KZ landed well in the exchanges but without great grappling he would have lost. He was taken down multiple times, both guys were.

If Conor had great wrestling I would pick him against Poirer because those are the guys who he loses to.
did you even watch that fight? KZ dominated him on the feet, hurt him multiple times and subbed him after hurting him with punches and a flying knee.

Picking McGregor but Poirier is a nice test for him. Can't wait to see this one.

Biggest bets ever in the history of MMA going to one side for sure.
