    Shock and awe the first time around.

    Aldo was shook--it's true. A champion who defended for almost a decade was shook. I still am baffled how such a dominant champion for so long could have crumbled under mental warfare...

    Aldo loaded up on that hook and Conor's precise timing got the KO.
    -------------
    Regardless of the outcome of Diaz/McGregor II, there will be massive interest in Aldo/McGregor II.

    We all know most pros think Diaz is gonna whoop that ass again and I happen to agree, but who really knows right?

    Conor has done more unexpected things in his career than beat Nate Diaz, so who knows?
    --------------

    Still... who you got for Aldo | McGregor II if they both stay healthy and active?

    More importantly, why are you picking this fighter to win?

    Can McGregor pull off a healthy weight cut to 145?

    Aldo looked ready for revenge after the Frankie fight. Will he whoop that McGregor ass and get his vengeance?

    Aldo seems like a man who is going to get his revenge. He seems to be in a place mentally now that Conor will not be able to crack.

    Thoughts?

    Conor gets wrecked by both and then loses to Frankie in a contender fight.

    Affected, not shook. Shook implies fear. Aldo was angry and got careless. Not the same thing, at all.

    TRUE
    he was a little bit shook though no? him looking down at the ground... all fidgety. he usually comes in without a care in the world. he seemed like he had a lot of cares before McGregor

    he was uncomfortable. not scared, but uncomfortable. the expectation from his people to shut the loud mouth up.

    UNCOMFORTABLE

    Conor is rightfully a massive favorite in the fighy.

    Aldo is gonna smoke Conor. His loss to him made him ascend to the next level. This is gonna be GSP-Serra 1 & 2 all over again. Come at me fanboys.

    All in on Aldo. Jose learned a big lesson from Conor and will show him how devastating his timing is in the rematch.

    I expected a great fight the first around and was let down. I expect much more of a fight next time

    He always looks at the ground before his fights..
    I think he was just tired of the trash talk and tried to end the fight as soon as possible.
    He went "all-in" with that punch and Conor countered
    perfectly.

    I think Conor would want to cut down to make 170 this time against Nate
    He came in at 168 last time
    This time he probably wants to be as big as possible and as fast as possible at the same time
    Hence, the weight cut for the Aldo rematch is probably going to be brutal
