    Not even 12 hours have passed since the conference, and it has over 1 million views on youtube as well as being a top story on all major sports news outlets (yahoo sports, espn, fox sports, etc.)

    The fans are pumped about about this one, and rightfully so.

    Looking forward to see UFC's official promo of the fight, the weigh-in, and most importantly, the fight itself.

    It's not a blessing for me. Or maybe it's just very well disguised.

    Not for me. I wanted two weight champion McGregor.

    Diaz at WW is stylistically more dangerous, difficult for Conor to beat

    You must be joking. My body was so ready for RDA vs Conor. I'm surprised my interest level is even this high after all the BS.

    "I love it when a master plan comes together" - so said Dana White (and then Kenny Florian)

    Ya maybe. But maybe RDA would have take Mac down at will. We'll have to wait and see

    When Khabib earns his shot, bring it on. He's too slow, McGregor would destroy him.

    Maybe for business,

    Not for me,

    RDA was a superfight,

    Two elite fighters, 2 belts, p4p implications...

    RDA smashed Diaz,

    They both looked in awesome shape.

    Yes for everyone's wallets, the casual fans and many hardcore fans.
    Most hardcore fans would be equally happy with RDA v's Connor.
    Then there are the usual suspects, the hardcore haters that will never be happy with anything Conor dose.
