    I knew some shit would happen, it's like some predestination is running on this game, Conor winning two gold belts wasn't supposed to happen so fast.

    Yeah.

    Something about Conor makes Brazilian champs bodies fall apart the weeks leading up to the fight.

    Maybe we'll get this fight for UFC 200... that's a fight that would be a great addition.

    I was more suprised that Conor wanted to step up and challenge so fast. I didn't see RDA pulling out. If anything this is the best time for RDA to fight Conor at LW before he gets accustomed to the weight class and has some fights there already

    Real injury or not those guys are just too dumb, fighters should really get more prejudiced one way or another when getting injured, they just need to train smarter, we the fans are always made idiots for expecting those great fights.

    Hell it's a miracle Aldo eventually showed up let alone a super fight

    Right, a superfight when 1 guy has 0 title defenses and the other has 1 title defense. What a joke.

    I don't believe fights will happen until after the weigh-in anymore. Injuries are what made me start to lose interest in boxing too.

    The numbers and revenue when all said is done will speak for itself.

    Zuffa is smart. I doubt RDA is injured. The headlines and press they'll get from this story of "RDA pulling out" will only increase the attention of this match when set at a later date.

    Really, I don't watch much boxing.
    I thought they had less of this bullshit, could give me some examples of great fighters pulled over because of injuries? Thanks

    Was never really a super fight in my eyes, it was just more of a guy returning to his natural weight class.
