    This superfight was put together in such seamless and easy fashion. Something was bound to go wrong. I feel like MMA fans are never really treated in insane fights like this, they will always end up getting cancelled some way or another. Same with Pettis/Aldo. These type of fights will typically NEVER end up happening.

    On the bright side, at least it wasn't a 6 month buildup. So the blue balls aren't quite as severe.

    the balls are still blue due to the premature ejaculation of Aldo vs Conor

    I'm still confused on why these things happen to MMA fans. We were only 2 weeks away from one of the biggest fights the UFC has ever put on. And RDA sprain his little foot? GTFO. I call bullshit.

    The same reason they have all pulled out. In sparing they can't find the answer to his striking. They keep missing those critical strikes that makes the difference in his fights. Aldo had the same issue imo but, after he pulled from the first one he had to at least try in the second one or vacate is belt and that's why the attempt at knocking him out in the first few moments of the fight. It was his only chance to negate his striking. Conor is a puzzle. RDA will have to face him like it or not to try and retain his belt.

    Now Conor will go KO Nate Diaz/Basic LW fighter and we will have to repeat the same thing with Aldo, waiting close to another year before we see Conor vs RDA, the original fight. Then RDA gets put in his place for running.

    Hardly, save your insults for the other kids and go back to class.



    For the record...He said NO to the fight. "Not ready"...seriously. He has only been training for Conor the past year and a half. He's not ready? He doesnt have to cut much weight at 155. lmao

    We need to just move past the point where we anticipate fights, and don't get excited until both guys/girls have weighed in successfully. Then when a card happens the way it's supposed to, it's like a treat.

    At this point I seriously don't get excited about the fight until they step on the scale at weigh-ins

    We brought this on ourselves. All the hate we spread to posters and fighters. We need to repent and change our ways...

    I hate you guys...
