    lol I wonder if RDA is serious or if he's just firing back at Conor. Should have replaced Cerrone with Pettis.

    Looks like one of them is getting KO'd in 1 minute. Get your prop bets in now. :D

    Also says he isn't getting paid extra for this fight and Conor was the reason for the delayed contract signing.

    I just wish fighters would show up and fight and thats it. Now we get 50 threads a day everytime a fighter attempts at being witty.

    He is lucky he saw the Aldo fight else it would be a record KO
    I think we are gonna see a Conor who will even shock the Conor fans by hanging on for 4 tounds and KO RDA to his beloved Jezus

    The whole thing is dumb. RDA knows Conor isn't an easy fight, but Conor really should stop pretending he can just KO anybody right away just because Aldo got too aggressive and made a huge mistake early. He couldn't finish Denis Siver in the first, couldn't finish Holloway at all, and got ragdolled my Medes for nearly ten minutes. If either guy truly believes it will be an easy fight, they'll probably wind up paying for it.

    Yup that's it from now on every Conor fight ends by KO in under a minute. That sounds perfectly realistic... oh wait realistic has nothing o do with this. I wonder what happens if he loses?

    Cerrone was right. He looks just like Frankensteins creation.

    The only chance Connie has to win is if he gets into RDA's head. Everyone thinks it is CM's tactics to pump the fight while all it really is only a ploy to get into the opponents head. No other reason at all.

    Jose Aldo said it was going to be an easy fight. I'm pretty sure Chad Mendes said the same thing. They both hit the deck after taking the left hand shot and you will just be another victim, Rafael. They all say it's an easy fight until they take that left and then they fall. Every single time.


    Conor is a tougher opponent than both Pettis and Cerrone. He's far more dangerous on the feet than them. He reacts much better than they do when his opponent wants to move forward and pressure him. Unlike Pettis & Cerrone, Conor's game isn't almost completely neutralized when he's pushed backwards and doesn't let the threat of the TD effect him like Pettis.

    Pettis and Cerrone are great kickers, some of the best kickers around - but if you use constant forward pressure against them, it really effects their striking because they rely on their kicks more than anything. If you can make them trade hands more than they're comfortable with, you can beat them, especially Cerrone.

    Conor is a more complete striker than both of them because not only does he have good kicks, he has some of the most dangerous boxing in the sport. His countering ability is some of the very best around, which makes it very difficult to push forward, he makes his opponent back off very quickly once they get tagged by that left.

    He's far more dangerous on the feet than Pettis and Cerrone because he's a far more versatile striker. He reacts extremely well under pressure, his game isn't almost completely neutralized if you push him backwards and he doesn't fear the TD at all. The fact he doesn't fear the TD and doesn't let it hinder his performance in any way is one of the reasons he's so dangerous, it's also why Carlos Condit is so dangerous and finishes guys because he doesn't fear the TD. If you go in and let the threat of the TD effect you in any way, it will make you hesitant on the feet (as we all know) like KJ Noons was against Burkman the other night.


    Pettis & Cerrone obviously have better kicks than Conor, they're some of the best kickers in the sport - but Conor has some great kicks of his own. He mixes it up extremely well with his kicks, he throws everything at you and a lot of people think they're just flash for some reason, but he uses those kicks to set up his punches, whereas most fighters use their punches to set up their kicks. He's very dangerous with his kicks, the Mendes fight proves it. Conor's boxing is miles ahead of Pettis, Cerrone AND dos Anjos.

    Being the more skilled boxer doesn't always mean you're going to be better than your opponent, even if you are truly the better boxer. It's all about effectiveness - so, not only is Conor the more skilled boxer, he's the more effective one.

    All it takes is one, especially when you're fighting McGregor. Not only does he have tons of power, but as we all know - his timing, accuracy/placement is some of the very best around. He doesn't have to hit you very hard, he just needs to land it in the right spot, at the right time and it's over.


    RDA's best chance at winning is to take Conor down and either TKO him or submit him. He is not going to win a striking battle. Not that he can't be competitive or anything, RDA is a great striker now, just that Conor is simply too dangerous there. It's just a matter of time before he lands and puts you down.

    This is not an easy fight for dos Anjos at all. He can say this shit, but he know damn well that it isn't an easy fight. Aldo talked about how Conor is going to be an easy fight, too, look what happened. I'm pretty sure Mendes said the same thing. They all say it's an easy fight until the bell rings and they realize that they are not going to last on the feet with him at all. They all say it's an easy fight and then they fall. Every single time.

    I feel McGregor will land that shot eventually and get the KO/TKO. I believe it will be 3 rounds at the very most and I'll be surprised if it actually goes to the 3rd. It's only a matter of time until Conor lands that shot and RDA gets hurt real bad and gets put down.


    RDA will move forward with a combination, but fail to bring his hand(s) back to guard his head like he normally does and he will pay for it. The way he drops his right hand when throwing the left is a very bad sign. I'm sure he's really tightening up his defense, but all RDA has to do is drop that right hand while throwing the left just once and it can all be over. Just one little slip up and Conor can put his lights out.

    Conor will make history once again. He will take that belt from Rafael and be the first man to hold two UFC titles at the same time. He will break more records, and he will break Rafael's jaw and it will require more plates/screws.

    McGregor via KO/TKO. Rafael is going to sleep. All it takes is one, just one. It's just a matter of time. Rafael is in serious trouble if he thinks this is an easy fight. Conor is already in his head. Conor will break him mentally and then he will break him physically just like he did to Jose. Then Rafael will be back in Brazil working at Jose's restaurant.

    I can't wait to see all the Conor haters bawl their faces off for the 8th time in a row. There's going to be so many sad little excuses.

    It's going to be one of the most glorious nights in MMA history. It won't be as glorious as when Holly KO'd Ronda, but it will definitely be up there.

    Conor will take that belt and not only will he be crowned as the first and only two division champ in the UFC by holding two belts at the same time - he will be crowned as the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. You're just going to have to accept it. Fedor who? Anderson who? Georges who? Jones who? Conor > all of them when he wins this fight.

    Deal with it.
