    I don't think Mcgregor will ever be able to make 145 pounds again, instead will be forced to fight @ 155, where he won't be nearly as dominate.

    Is it a true statement to say Mcgregor probably won't be able to make 45 again?

    The 170 thing is a joke, bro.

    Just to make things more convenient for Conor and the UFC later on.

    He will make the weight, but its just how effective he will be and how well his body will handle it after going up and down like that.

    No IV, Post USADA, No. McGregor is never making 145 again.

    He can do it. It's not like he's been fighting at 170 for years or something, and its not like hes not 170+ between fights. His cuts are pretty brutal it seems but he will make 145 like he always has, more of the same looking like Skeletor.

    He's not really a 170 fighter. It's a gimmick.

    Totally disagree.
    1. Never missed before - a persons history is most important for future actions
    2. Not Cutting that much he walks around at 170-175 there are LW that walk at 195 like Ferguson.
    3. He's a manlet

  15. Disagree.

    He made 145 many times before and he can easily do it again. Even if he put on a few pounds of muscle mass since. Losing muscle mass is easy.

    Also, fighters like BJ Penn have fought at WW (and higher) and they can still make 145.

    Of course he can. Cruz walks around at 160lbs and makes BW.

    Of course not. You can't be a verb. Nobody can.

    He fights Aldo then moves to lightweight. He wants to be a 2 division champ.
