Yep, he's definitely a threat to McMuffin - I mean McGreHype.

PS: McGreHype seems like the Irish version of Michael Bisping that the UFC has used for its UK fanbase.

brandao has the potential to ko or sub anyone in the division, but if he doesnt do it straight out of the gate, hes dead in the water

i dont think he can finish mcgregor and is going to get boxed up after 3 minutes of hell

also, i think his win over bermudez is misleading, it was a hailmary sub in a fight that he was clearly losing. im not saying it was a fluke or lucky etc. but bermudez is a MUCH better fighter than he was at the time, and even if they rematched immediately, most would pick bermudez as the favorite

I thought Zuluhino had something to offer Fedor.

Diego has flash KO power but if Conor's standup lives up to the hype, I can't see Diego catching him. Diego could barely land a clean hit on Poirier.

Brawldao definitely is a threat, but this is Conor's fight to lose. He'll just weather the storm and go for the finish in the later rounds. And so the hype trains rolls on...
