    something has to be done about over training and sparring too hard. This is happening way too often. Feel sorry for people who bought there tickets and air fare to go see this.

    They cannot force a man to step into the Octagon with McGregor.

    RDA was intelligent. Who ever does that against Conor is a smart dude.

    Cause they know they are going to get wrecked.

    But no, if Cerrone step in it would be great and there would be no 2 weeks excuse again since Cerrone just fight.

    Not wrecked. The McGregornator and Ronda slayer are both still on.

    As long as it's Cerrone or Diaz I think most people would be happy.

    I just pray it's not someone like Dunham or Gamburyan

    Considering how often this happens, I can't say I feel very sorry for the people buying tickets in advance. They have to know by now that it's basically a coin toss as far as whether or not they are going to see the fight they were hoping to see.

    I don't think RDA wants this fight. I knew this would happen. Magically happens weeks away from the events. Why the f should McGregor fight someone at lw with zero upside and purely downside (injury, loss, etc).

    Yeah I was looking at that, if not for the title fight this event sucks, they're probably saving it so they can unload it into ufc 200 I hope.

    I would scalp tickets the day before instead of this crap situation.

    RDA would likely sell his title for his potential payday from this fight. He wanted, but he trained for it like an idiot.

    I was thinking that the day before yesterday, "just 2 weeks now nothing can happen", it was just too good to be true. Just hate the dumbfu**** who can't properly train.

    It sucks because this has become a major part of the sport. With the training camp's these guys go through, I'm wondering if it's avoidable. It seems almost impossible. Back to back ppv main events sucks b/c I was really anxious to see it.

    It just seems convenient 2 weeks before the fight. Now McGregor is expected to fight somebody lower ranked with no upside. Needless to say boycotting the event entirely.

    No. It's bullshit. Cerone got starched how many times? I like him but he doesn't belong there. McGregor vs title fights.

    Ya I agree kinda a terrible card but with the most hyped fighter, "The lead handed Leprachaun ". I'm sure they will stick someone else in there but not for a title and risking Dana's money cow losing in a non title fight.
