We've seen Über Conor now, but, how well does he move?

    If Nate wasn't banking so much in this fight (he asked for even more and got it, supposedly) then I'd feel really bad for him. These shots will hurt and they will land repeatedly if necessary, “until the job's done”.

    Harder than a coffin nail

    Props to Nate for taking the fight even though he wanted it at 170. Another sacrificial lamb led to the slaughter but for lots of ching. It's a win-win situation for him barring the possible exception of losing the ability to take a solid shot for the rest of his career.

    Since Conor has the McNuggets to fight at 170 how epic would it be if Nate pulled out and GSP was put in. Holy fudgeing SHIT

    I like the Nate fight. I'd not be sad if GSP just stayed retired.

    No sweat if you actually believe this will happen. Just post your betting slips. Nate's a huge underdog so you'll make some good money there. ;)

    Just once, I'd like hear an interview from Conor where he's not speaking in "soundbites," as a caricature, with cool, action movie lines.

    I just wanna hear a normal, humble answer from him about something. Just once.

    Im a firm believer in Sandor over the Mountain because of his movement which was confirmed by ned stark in the book.

    and if there was ever a fight that was "he lost but he won" its the red viper vs the mountain.

    Dude if GSP popped up out of retirement in 10 days notice to fight McGregor you wouldn't be pumped? I would buy instead of watch for free.

    I never was a huge fan. A testament to my own poor judgement most likely. I did start to really like him when he fought Diaz and stopped talking about his legacy. I dunno, maybe I would. But this fight has my attention now. I do think McG takes it but it'll be a fun ride.

    The new size could actually slow down Conor and make him more lethargic and more susceptible to gassing out. Getting used to fighting in a new body takes time and muscles need oxygen. It could definitely be a detriment if it goes the distance or if there are multiple grappling exchanges. lol I make a fine sum of money betting on UFC bro. At least $100 each card. My small cash bet of $27 on Nate at +300 to win doesn't need to be posted but I assure you I stay winnin fam :D

    I believe Conor will land a Wheel kick on Nate's dome.

    He's pretty chill after he wins his fights.

    I would be. I'd definitely buy it, I think many people would. It'd be Über McGregor vs Über St-Pierre. GSP's been looking rather mountainous himself lately.

    Well, according to one of the greatest Muay Thai fighters of all time, Saenchai, he's not only VERY accurate but he's also quick and powerful, and this is coming from an extremely quick fighter himself. I'll take his word for it over yours. ;)

    Do you always use other peoples opinions to make your own?
