    Likely scenario is Conor just walks Siver down and gets the quick knockout with his boxing, but does anyone think he has the bravado to throw a few spinning back kicks and use Siver's own move against him? Or does he use his brain and try to go for an early shower with a quick KO?

    I'd rather see a back and forth epic because I think Siver has the capacity for one in this fight, it's two seasoned strikers going at it, and it'd be nice to see Conor pushed into some deeper waters.

    I think Siver's best chances are off his powerful counter hooks since Conor tends to forget about his opponents range when he's inside on the offensive (he has been tagged a fair few times with decent shots when he shouldn't have been), or Siver needs to clinch and trip, or force a takedown, and grind it out.

    NO doubt about it. No fear of a catch/grab and shoot so I'll go 100%.

    I think he said something about a 360 head remover.

    Siver throws that kick hard but Conor throws it better imo. Just more balanced and less strained like he said.

    He has an eye for the dramatic so there's a very high likelihood

    Conor's movement is unpredictable so why are you asking me to predict?

    Probably, it's one of his preferred techniques.

    He's been working a lot of TKD recently. So probably.

    He'll probably throw it as soon as they touch gloves like he did against Brandao.

    He has thrown them a lot before so why not.

    Daniel Cormier said on that UFC Rising show that Conor's spinning back kick is his best move.

    He throws that thing in .4-.5 seconds with full force. Of course he is going to throw it....alot.

    Siver will reach down to grab it and get caught with a hook and be on queer street within 20 seconds.
