    As a big Conor fan...

    Respect to Siver. Guy is tough as nails, and he wasn't afraid. He just got outworked. No point in rubbing it in, that dude is a badass.

    All you Siver fans out there, hold your heads high. Especially the ones who still kept their Siver AVs, instead of jumping ship right after. :)

    Respect to Siver.

    No respect for the people hopping on the Siver bandwagon hoping in all hopes just to have Conor lose.

    I think Drunken was the only actual Siver fans. The rest were just GOAT haters.

    Conor bless them all though. They know not what they do.

    Siver fan for life. He was a lamb to the slaughter, but g'damn did he not flinch for a second. He went for it and went out on his shield like a warrior.

    Always...... I mean always.... a Siver fan.

    I wonder if he can drop to 135lbs... He seemed so small next to Connor.

    Might be very difficult given his age and natural body-type. Not impossible, but perhaps not worth the effort either. We'll see.

    Siver was swinging hard in those exchanges, looking for that chin. Guy is gritty, and was not beaten mentally. He just couldn't dance with McGregor, but he gave it a real go. Hespect

    Seems like a nice dude so respect. That said he's 36, coming off a steroid bust so he's likely clean for the first time in a long time. I don't think steroid free Siver beats a single top 15 fighter. Was a joke of a match up for a title shot.

    With the UFC's recent match making... if Conor wins expect his first defense to be a rematch against Dustin Poirier or some shit lol. UFC is a joke these days.

    Yeah. His chin was better than I thought. He took a couple clean head kicks without going down.

    Siver showed some real toughness in that fight and lasted a lot longer than anyone expected. He was simply outskilled and outmatched.

    What is truly shameful are the people who act like Siver is a can to discredit Conor. Siver is a badass and has only lost to top fighters in the last 7-8 years.

    Conor, Cub, Cerrone, Pearson. Two of those losses are at 155, and the 2 at 145 are against 2 of the top guys.

    Siver is not a can, respect him.

    It`s obviously that Siver is not a bad fighter, but let`s be real the guy was a tailor made fight for Mcgregor and that is the reason to all the hate.

    I didnt see the fight but I was able to listen to Rogan and Goldie commentate. According to Rogan Siver only grazed Conner twice and Conner repeatedly hit Siver with an axe and then ran over him with a truck. I cant respect that:redface:

    Siver is a good fighter, always has been. Was ranked top 10-15 not that long ago after beating Nunes until inactivity knocked him out.

    Siver definitely was stylistically favorable to McGregor, he always loses to guys with better movement and speed than him. With that said, the "stylistically favorable" argument is lame. A top win is a top win, doesn't matter against who as long as they're well ranked. Beyond that, fighters have styles, if an opponent is stylistically favorable to you, it's because you are good at that style and are able to overwhelm other styles. I remember people using that to criticize GSP "oh he fights stylistically favorable opponents." No he doesn't you fool, they're stylisically favorable because he's THAT good.
