    Just a bit of geekery for the fanboys and the nuthuggers....


    Raphael Dos Anjos


    Raphael (Hebrew) : God is Healed or God is Healer
    Dos Anjos (Portuguese) : From Angels

    Conor McGregor

    Conor (Anglicised form of "Conchobar") : Old Irish meaning "Lover of Hounds"
    McGregor (Anglicised "Son of Griogar"). Griogar is the Gaelicised version of the Gregorios (late Greek ) meaning "Watchful, Alert"


    So if we can bend the language slightly have here is the match up between:

    God is Healed from Angels VS Alert Lover of Hounds

    Strictly speaking from an etymological standpoint: I would bet the house on a deity healed through its own creations over an enthusiastic dog lover, any day of the week.

    Not a sermon, just a thought. Cheers!

    Etymology? What is that, the study of insects?
