    I wish RDA didn't have to pull out vs Conor...

    Really wonder how things have gone, not just in that fight but how things would've played out at LW and the fights Conor would have to have won would of been different.

    Can you imagine if RDA beat him, Nate fight never happens and Aldo got his rematch.

    I know this topic has been discussed a few times here, it's just interesting thinking about how things would've been different

    Not everyone can stay in the fight when their foot is a balloon.

    It doesn't get talked about enough around here, but it's insane that Alverez went from losing clearly to Cowboy, then winning some seriously close split decisions to finishing RDA in a fight where he looked out of his depth.

    I have alot of respect for Eddie, but ugh I don't think he was ever close to truly being the best fighter in the division. RDA just got hit right in the sweet spot, MMA is ruthless.

    if rda didnt pull out

    i believe he would of lost look what eddie did to him it was known that rda couldnt make 55 anymore then lost to tony and
    moved up

    conor would of went on to be double champ earlier than he did he still wouldn't of defended and still would of went to box floyd so not much would of changed

    if he did lose to rda is where things would of became different i feel he still would of stayed at 55 he cant make 45 anymore him and dana probably would of found a way to get him the 55 gold the ultimate goal was the floyd fight this is where dana and conor made bank

    You're one of the biggest nuthuggers on here..
    It's more commendable to pull out because of an injury than to fight with it just so you have an excuse in your back pocket for when you lose.

    Yup you're delusional

    So it's more respectable for a guy to pull out of a massive fight where tons of his own fans will be traveling to Las Vegas, than to show up and just fight through it. You're reaching here, but we're talking about Conor, so of course you are.

    Damn, Conor has really done damage on your poor souls.

    Some of you sound worse than scorned ex girlfriends.

    This is why brown belts shouldn't be able to make threads.

    very insteresting fight, after the nate diaz fight, the low kick game would be really interesting vs RDA.

    Conor would have starched him. Zero doubt in my mind. RDA dodged a bullet

    RDA would have steamrolled him after a competitive round or so

    RDA’s foot was literally a balloon. Pictures confirm. Where do you think Conor got his excuse from?

    RDA ruined 155 confirmed. RDA would’ve manhandled Conor at that time. Conor stuggled with Nate Diaz of all people.

    RDA was a roll that time of his career and was a big threat to beating Conor.

    Literally lost his next fight, Conor could have starched him too.
    The southpaw v southpaw matchup would have been interesting
