    People were overly impressed with McG's demolition of Dennis Siver but they're giving McG too much credit and not enough credit to karma and the MMA Gods. When McG tried to touch gloves before the fight, Siver refused. We've seen countless times before that when fighter A goes to touch gloves and fighter B refuses, fighter A usually wins in devastating fashion.

    We saw it when Fedor crushed Ogawa in under a minute: [no footage because of UFC copyright].

    Here's the UFC's Ashlee Evans-Smith refusing to touch gloves and then getting KO'd in 5 seconds:
    [YT]5V0Puyoa_40?t=5m35s[/YT]

    Here's another example from a smaller org, a 4 second KO when the guy refuses to touch gloves:
    [YT]6gw-G6yy3Zg?t=38s[/YT]

    So McG's destruction of Siver, while complete, is not that impressive because it took him almost a round and a half to do it. A truly great fighter like Fedor would have finished his disrespectful opponent in a lot less time. Either way, the wrath of the MMA Gods were to credit for the one-sided fight, not some transcendent skills of McG.

    McGreggor talks shit about his opponents 24/7 and its Siver who has poor sportsmanship? Weird.

    What happens in the ring is different from what happens outside it. The MMA Gods only care about what you do inside the ring.

    Didn't Conor attempt to hit one of his opponents immediately after touching gloves with them?

    Good post, had forgotten about this fight too. But insomniatric is right too, Silva bowed to him instead. Not sure it's the same. Did Silva shake his head at the glove touch? If so, then he falls into the disrespectful category and we all know what happened next.

    It's fair game after the glove touch. Plus he was called out for it but people showed he touched gloves and wasn't really trying to hit his opponent cheaply.

    He didn't shake his head, he had his hands on his hips because he was doing some stretches or something, then Weidman extended his hand and Anderson responded by bowing.

    Maybe your deaf or just choose to ignore the shit talking McGreggor does.

    Calling the round and minute you're going to win is disrespectful to the opponent

    Sticks his finger up

    Gets in his opponent's face at every opportunity

    Pretty much everything he does is disrespectful so maybe you're blind too

    Yes, Aldo doesn't seem to have bad feeling towards McGregor, just finds him funny.
