    Wins in mediocre fashion. Or Siver gives him an absolute war.

    Does the hype train continue? Does he still get a title shot?

    Of course it continues. Did you forget that the Holloway fight happened?

    He dominated an incredibly talented fighter on one leg. That was "mediocre"?

    No. But Sherdog & Dana hate decisions.

    The local fandwagoners have all kinds of excuses being lined up so he will be fine. They will blame it on luck, the bad weight cut, too much media attention, too much attention in the Boston area, over looking Siver, too much paying attention to Aldo, Siver on the juice, etc...

    So long as he wins, he'll be fine. Siver is tough.

    Siver is a good fighter. I won't be surprised if it's a tough fight for Conor. Obviously if Conor wins quickly it's because Siver was never any good, just like Poirier was never any good, Halloway was too young and sucked back then, etc.

    I started a thread dedicated to Siver on another forum over a year ago. Been following him for a long time. He has been in my top 3 favorites for years. I haven't actually been following MMA that long though tbh but have been following Siver since I started watching about 3 or so years ago now.

    I enjoy the grind line guys. I tend to favor them over the hyped up talkers and flashy types

    Oh, and the avi part is correct. Just changed it today actually. My old avi was me. I changed it to support the man.

    If Siver gives Conor a war, then he'll be ranked #2 in the world.

    Conor's movement and speed will leave Siver like a deer in the headlights ... Conor is going to crack that chin, other featherweights don't hit like he does, McGregor has reach, speed advantage ... Siver will be going night night.

    Knock out in under 2 minutes as he predicted or he is a complete failure

    1) No way Dana is gonna let that golden opportunity slip away, even after a mediocre performance a win is a win.

    2) Have no doubt in your mind the hype will continue, countless excuses will be made and he will still run through Aldo according to his bandwagon.

    I'd have to say yes. Even if Siver gives Conor the hardest fight of his life for all rounds, and Conor still wins... Than yes, he would still have his huge fan base and media popularity. Of course he would get constantly critiqued and criticized however
