    But it will be closer than people think. One of those fights were the contender looks to be the next champ until a certain fight were he doesn't look as invisible as people thought.

    I feel that Siver will land a takedown in round 2 and Connor will show some trouble, but will win the decision.



    Tis all

    Can't picture anything aside from a Conor first round KO/TKO.

    You're putting a lot of faith in the competitive caliber of a guy who wasn't confident enough to beat the likes of Manny Gamburyan without drugs.

    Hard to look at an invisible guy.

    Siver is too blocky in posture and awkward in movement. Even his much ballyhooed spinning sh*t is slow and defunct of seamlessness and fluidity. He's strong and powerful but too unpolished and lethargic to be competitive with a guy that's the polar opposite. His best chance is to turn it into a wrestling match or catch Conor with a haymaker in the pocket. I don't see his wrestling working against a guy as big and strong as Conor, and I don't see him catching a guy far better defensively with much better reflexes with the money shot.

    Conor by drubbing, round 1.

    This is the first time I actually believe his pre-fight prediction.

    Siver will fold quicker than Superman on laundry day.

    Man, if Conor was invisible he'd be invincible.

    Just a thought.

    If Siver shoots up Roids before this fight the equation may be different. Considering he has nothing left to lose...

    Max Holloway is better standing and on the ground then Siver... and Conor out-struck, out-wrestled, and out-grappled him.

    Max gets nowhere near the respect he deserves. One of the better fighters at 145, without question.

    Same here.

    I think Siver is going to try to grapple a lot and I don't think that works out too well for him. I think Conor catches him with something while Siver is going for that lead left hook he so often favours.

    He likes to drop his right hand when he goes for that lead hook sometimes and I see Conor landing a left high kick, or he'll bait Siver into throwing it and he'll hurt him with the counter left of his own or the rear uppercut.

    I don't see how Siver can take this fight at all. Conor is just too good on the feet and I don't see Siver getting many, or any TD's at all because Conor's ability to control the distance is extremely good and if he shoots on Conor, I see Conor being too far away too quickly and he will make Siver pay for even trying that.



    It would be pretty damn crazy if Siver pulled out the win, anything can happen, but I really don't see that happening. I seriously would bet my house on Conor to win this fight by KO/TKO.

    7-1 if conor wins over the distance. $1.20 by ko. i have a few dollars on it going the distance. siver's greatest vulnerability is the right hand, it should be interesting to see how he deals with a southpaw.

    there is a small possibility that siver runs and holds to a decision.

    Would love to see Siver take this fight just to shut up all the meme bullshit on here but I don't see it happening.

    Rooting for Siver to beat the hype machine.

    I want Siver to win because he seems like a generous opponent choice for Conor and a step back from the last guy he fought. With all the McGregor tire pumping I want to see him fight a top 3 guy already. His hype has already far exceeded his level of opposition and everyone deserves to see a fair gauge of his skills.

    Siver is gonna crack under the pressure ... whereas Connor will grow from the pressure. Conor will win this easily.
