    Connor will get stockton slapped, end up on the ground and then submitted. But where does this leave him? Is the RDA fight then off? Obviously. Back to 145 to fight midgets like Frankie?

    Where will it leave you if Conor wins?

    If he loses he'll surely be screaming and shouting for the title fight with RDA to commence immediately - and that fight will be bigger than the Aldo one if McGregor loses to Diaz, in my opinion.

    Depends if he is willing to tap to a joint lock or let it break.

    Wouldn't Nate then get the rematch with RDA?

    Not exactly rocket surgery. Conor's a smart puppy and a savvy promoter, he'll be fine.

    If he loses, the next logical step is to defend the FW belt. We may expect an eager McGregor, since he'll be a man fighting to avoid a grueling diet. A title fight against RDA would not make sense.

    Conner doesn't control hype, he created it... but about 25-50 good stockton slaps and a being caught in a triangle with Nate flipping the bird at Scotland will end it.

    Just my take on the fight. Sheepdog doesn't agree with me but I believe to Nate to be in shape and a superior striker. Although Canner has "spinning shit" I think his impeccable timing and accuracy will be taken away from him by Nate's pitter patter. This will lead to the ground and there Connie is threading water with a great white.

    Somewhere between being Nate's bish and featherweight champ?

    If the fight was back and forth and a war, I'd imagine that they might go for a rematch. Nate would want it, because it would be more money to buy "a whole bunch of coll shit" and Conor would want it for revenge.

    If it was a quick sub, then it really is a messed up situation for the UFC.

    I think Conor is again showing how smart he is. Who is going to fault him for losing a 170lbs fight. Win Win rake in the green

    Defend the 145 belt and then Nate fights Alvarez for a #1 contender fight.

    Conor would still have his 3 wins vs Top 10 Ranked opponents to show for his career.

    LMAO, how does he get a Lightweight title shot after losing to Nate Diaz? Are you serious? How is the UFC going to book that fight with a straight face? What a joke.
