    All I know Connor better not ruin it tmrw he looked sick and gaunt ass fuuck in the weigh in.

    He's lucky he's fighting an old ass man who he will put away easly cuz if it was any of the top 5 FW he would get murdered.

    Connors face looked like dying patients during weigh in.

    Conor is more dangerous to Aldo than Sonnen was to Anderson.

    Both bad match-ups but Conor can finish the fight at any point. Aldo is going to get stopped.

    Anderson didn't really have good wrestling and Chael excellent at it.

    Conor is good at standup, but Aldo never really had any problems in the standup.

    idunget BUT I agree, Conor will take Aldo's head CLEAN off.

    If Conor does manage to get past Aldo I think Mendes or Edgar would take him out.

    Aldo has the ground game and kickboxing fundamentals to handle Conors flashy stuff, Aldo via UD or ugly late tko

    Connors strikes are horribly telegraphed and sticks his chin way up in the air when unloading.

    But ofcourse anyone with with a last name that begins with "Mc" is blind to that.

    Aldo will hurt this boy badly

    If he stands he will fuuuuck Connors leg up who's always sticking it out will play right to Aldo kicks and if they go to the ground Aldo will choke the kid unconscious.

    So Conor wins the first 4.5 rounds and Aldo subs him. I doubt it but stranger things have happened.

    Aldo via KO

    You have no idea whether that's true. Aldo can finish the fight at any time as well. And Sonnen was a terrible matchup for Silva. He nearly lost the first fight and had to cheat to win the second.

    I don't think Aldo is going to want to deviate from what has made him successful. If he attempts to take the fight to the ground it will be as a result of getting lit up on the feet.

    Aldo has fantastic kickboxing fundamentals. Far superior to Conor but that won't matter. McGregor's flashy kicks are to dictate distance and control the movement - It won't be intended to do damage.

    IMO the movement will stifle Aldo's ability to effectively set up his kicks. The fight will be decided by the boxing and if Conor lands it's lights out. He has the length, he has the movement, he has superior power and he will dictate the distance.

    Second round TKO for McGregor. Either way though, I'm glad the FW division will finally have a fight that rivals anything the heavier divisions have put together.

    Sonnen was a terrible match-up for Silva on paper. In reality he was a bigger threat because he was a massive drug taking cheat.

    I don't think Aldo can finish Conor. Of course this is opinion. The fight hasn't happened yet. I'm confident I will be right though went Conor's hand gets raised.

    So you predict Conor to be winning 40-36 going into the 5th round? Bold.

    We will see. Lose = yes. WIn = obviously not.

    The big thing you need to consider when looking at power though is the quality of opposition faced, Aldo vs low/mid level guys left a trail of destruction and I think he would again today.

    Connar's foot movement is good I agree but the big potential weakness I see vs Aldo is his head movement and hand speed, for a 145er he's really not that quick. I won't be at all supprized if he takes a hell of a lot of punishment in boxing exchanges with Aldo.

    I can see that comparison. Not necessarily the clear #2 of the division, but possibly a really bad matchup for the champ.

    Conor didn't have a single decision in his run Pre-UFC. The same can not be said for Aldo.
