    lol. the truth comes out, MMA is really pro wrestling and its all fake and theres really no skills or things to compare too. its all pre-determined by back stage writers! I knew it! :)

    Probably Zahabi, but he didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, neither with his in depth RDA/Conor analysis, or the Nate/Conor one.

    So I guess I'm an above average armchair fan :)

    I feel a bit like this too, I want to see Conor show us something special like a Holm vs Ronda type performance.

    But at around 6am my time a quick KO would please me too....

    The fact he hand picked Nate throws an asterisk all over this fucker. Just imagine if he lost.

    ZERO defence for Conor, or his personal bidets.

    We can hope... but as it's a hand picked opponent. I'm thinking the odds are Conor wins.

    I really liked what Firas said about how guys getting paid is good for the sport. Sometimes there's an attitude like "oh this guy is getting too much of the pie" instead of trying to figure out how to make the pie bigger so that everyone can get more.

    I just finished a breakdown of Silva vs Bisping. Lots of people liked it. so right now, I'm in the process of finishing an write up for Conor vs Nate.

    There's a lot of interesting things I noticed when I watched fighters who gave them troubles stylistically. I can't wait to share it with readers later.

    Firas has a great mind for the sport. I appreciate his philosophies.

    those kinds of comments make no sense and kind of seem like you hate intelligence - yea no one can predict fights but hearing their insights is still useful, the sport is hard to predict and that makes it exciting but doesnt mean fighters / coaches (and some fans) cant provide good insight that we as fans can appreciate / enjoy

    Check out his/her predictions for 196. If that's not dead on I don't know what is. Was there a pre-fight breakdown video???
