    Nate would get frustrated by the kicks and the oblique kicks quickly I think.

    I agree with you, doesnt excite me either, but I think they will choose Nate because there is no one else available.

    Just based on the Diaz/MJ fight, I think Diaz is more interesting than Cerrone. I want to see Conor deal with his reach and pressure, which are usually Conor's strengths. Honestly I thought he should have to take a fight like this before challenging for the title anyway. I know Conor fans like to say he'll crush these guys no sweat, but the truth is, if he can beat either Diaz or Cerrone it would be very, very impressive.

    Cerrone is in every other fight and Nate is 2-3 in his last 5.
    Ask Aldo or get Khabib.

    Nate/Conor would be fucking great. Cerrone a close second.

    Who cares if neither of them are in line to face Conor or not? You're not an MMA fan if you don't like these fun as hell fights.

    Doesn't excite me, might excite someone who just started watching the sport though.

    Me neither but it's better they go ahead with a fight, and not waste Conor's time.

    In my opinion anyone that stands with McGregor gets knocked out though...who else is there?

    Cerrone just fought at 170. Can he really turn around and be ready to fight at 155 that quickly? It'd be one thing if he was prepping for a fight at 155 but he wasn't.

    I'm on the Pettis train for this one. I know he's lost back to back fights, but no one can deny that stylistically Pettis/McGregor is a very exciting potential match up.

    MAybe but is he cleared to fight yet? Also I don't think he's anywhere near fighting shape.

    I'd be more than happy to see Cerrone in order to save the card. Sure the guy has come up small in some big fights but he's always ready and doesn't make excuses. He'd be the biggest name on Conor's record besides Aldo and it would certainly be a feather in his cap to beat him at LW. Plus it would be a gauge of just what Conor has for LW's.

    Heart attack usually doesnt force you to lose 150 lbs THAT quickly...
