    Rda has already admitted to being angry a couple of times, not that I think it will effect the result either way.

    Lol sherdog gets all pissy pants when threads like this come around, and when Conor says something stupid it's "he's in RDA's head! 1st round KO HEAD CLEAN OFF HURRHURRDURRRRRR"

    The double standard is hilarious

    Conor has gotten into your head at least. And he told me it's very empty in there.

    RDA must be working on the intricacies of details of maneuvers that Conor doesn't even know the names of yet.

    I might agree with you one this one. Aldo's MT technique might be slightly better than RDA's.

    Now, I might blow your mind with this one....hang one.....RDA will use his MT, instead of leaping in with a hook on someone who has a 8 inch reach advantage.

    Either RDA's MT or Aldo's MT is more than adequate enough to beat the brakes off of Conor, but here's a little secret, RDA might actually use it.

    RDA historically is the sloppier fighter, I think he's more prone than Aldo generally to charge in guns blazing.

    Obviously though it would be hard to charge in any more aggressively than Aldo did.

    Only way RDA gets the TD is if he can get Conor against the fence and drag him down. Not that he can't possibly get Conor down while in the center or something, just that his TD's really aren't anything special from there, he's much better with them if he can put you on the fence, throw some strikes to get you to put your hands up to block and then he shoots for the TD.

    But backing Conor up to the fence like that is easier said than done. He won't be able to push Conor back like he did against Pettis because of Conor's countering striking ability and movement. Nobody has really been able to effectively push Conor back and whenever they try, he either cuts angles well and counters and that makes them back off completely.

    Avoiding that left hand from Conor for 25 minutes is not going to be an easy task. RDA's defense is going to get him into trouble eventually because of how he drops his hands when throwing punches. I feel it's just a matter of time until dos Anjos is hurt and gets put down.

    Conor gets the KO/TKO eventually. I don't see how dos Anjos survives for 25 minutes. Nobody has been able to do it. The guy in your AV couldn't even do it for 20 seconds. It will all be over soon, my friend, and then you will jump on his next opponents' jock.

    Conor just doesn't have any material as he has had with previous opponents. Aldo, Mendes, Poirier. He had a lot of material only against Max he didn't ha e anything
