    If you remember back in May/June, Conor was the clear/slight favorite on the betting lines when his best win was against Dennis Silver!


    Now after the destruction of mini-Mendes, him v Aldo has to be even more of a lock. I'm thinking -250, -300

    Should be the opposite considering how easy it was to take and hold him down.

    Yes of course.
    I just mean in general I do not care if and why people consider Conor the favourite as I simply do not see it that way.

    However logistically I do follow the trends.

    not true at all, once you place your bet your odds are locked in. so whatever happens later as far as the betting line is completely insignificant.

    but I'm sure you already knew that...:eek:

    This...Aldo destroys him, then Frankie, then he goes up in weight because he'll use the "cut" for an excuse and everyone in the Top 10 at 155 will manhandle him...I hope he saved his money.

    Doesn't matter, he'll beat Aldo with the odds for or against him.

    Aldo sucks, he's only beaten Mendes 2x. McGregor is much better, he's beaten Mendes!

    No he won't. Aldo beats Conor and he makes it look easy.

    What I meant was that Conor has a very good stand up game, but his ground game was horrible. So that gave me a clue that in case Aldo is not getting success on the feet he can take Conor down and ground him to a decision or even get a sub.

    Didn't quite understand you. You think Aldo will clean out the 145 but can hang with the top 10 at 155?
