    Yoel thinks that if GSP wins then they will have a GOAT vs GOAT fight against Silva. Thats why he wants to fight abd beat Silva beforehand so that that is out of the question. That's what he means when he says "its like a chess match."
    Makes sense when you consider they decided to set up the Gastelum vs Silva fight instead.

    Tyron "jump to conclusions" Woodley can't accept that he's just not as big of a money draw compared to Conor. From a content perspective, I wouldn't want to watch Woodley's "show because it would be 10x more boring than the MAC life. Woodley needs to wake up and realize he's just not controversial enough. He's controversial now, but for the wrong reasons...

    Chiesa is way too hyped up on himself. He hasn't really beaten anyone, a 3 fight win streak is meaningless in a division with guys on 9 fight win streaks, 8 fight win streaks, etc. I hate that Ariel keeps pumping him up by saying he's "one or two fights away". In the LW division he's not even close to 2 fights away, he would need MINIMUM 3 great finishes to get there.

    How much time does Conor need? June would be 7 months. It would be better for him to fight in June. If he fights in June he may defend his belt in September-October. Put him and GSP on the same card.

      Larry Fisher they already said this Floyd fight will be late 2017 early 2018. He won't be fighting mma this year i doubt. even if he never fights Floyd he will drag this out for atleast this year. just because it's like 10 mma fights worth of pay for this one boxing match

      Cian Sheridan I hope not to see another belt vacated, it ruins the division for at least 4-6 months because the next 2 people who are voted to fight for a belt everyone will arguing over who deserved it, who was ranked where, maybe there should be a limit on how long the belt can be held without being defended.

    I don't clearly remember Michael Chiesa. I watched him on TUF and I think he was decent, but I only recently realized he was still in the UFC kinda recently, but other than that he doesn't feel relevant. I want to see another fight from him so we can remember him because he's talking a lot, but for whatever reason he's still irrelevant.

      And you're so upset about it too? Really? Who cares? One thing is for sure, you were very, very anti-Floyd/Conor. The way your voice sounded when you decried it as rubbish. We, the people do not forget. You can play spin doctor now if you want, but I remember you saying things like, "It will never happen", "Who would want to see it" Now you do a full 180 cuz it could be a thing. Yes you said that thing after the eddie fight, but what about the times it was mentioned, before the eddie fight huh? This potential fight is crap. I hate the direction the UFC is headed. Moving more toward a WWE format instead of distancing themselves from it. Be honest Ariel, you don't want this fight. Let me ask you a question... In a perfect world, who would you want to see Conor fight next? What sport? What division? What opponent? If you say Floyd, I can't trust you anymore

      *K131399* Год назад

      bisping 5 years ago was alot more agile, and even then i cant see him denying yoel' double leg. we're not just talking about a great wrestler, yoel's a different animal. cardio could be a huge factor, but looking at bisping' last few fights, i just dont see him being able to last long enough to make it relevant. im not a big romero fan but i cant see him losing.

      +Dan B I like your perspective. It does depend on how one defines the concept "put on the map." I don't think it matters if NON hardcore fans know them b/c I would bet they wouldn't know their names or fighting styles or career background. They would just recall that "Isn't that one of the guys Conor Mcgregor beat?" To me, that is meaningless & not putting them on the map. There is no benefit to Alvarez or Poirier that the NON hardcore fan knows that. Conor fought Poirier b4 his epic rise so that doesn't mean much. If Alvarez would have beaten Conor then he would have been put "on the map" in terms of people remembering his name & trying to find out who he is like what happened to Holly Holm when she beat Ronda.

    Bisping, saying he'll face Romero 5 weeks after facing GSP as if it is guaranteed he's going to win. Besides calming down the rumbles of fans and the #1 contender, he's making an excuse for his belief in losing to Yoel. I love that fight between Yoel and Anderson. Anderson has not put together a string of wins in forever, but he is not like the Diaz brothers as he is very dangerous in the striking realm with the ability to end a fight with one devastating strike, and extremely difficult to end in a submission even when grounded. This fight would be for the actual title, because Yoel winning is practically a guarantee that he'll demolish Bisping, or GSP with overwhelming wrestling control as well as his ultra athletic killer instinct strikes.

  • Larry Fisher
    Larry Fisher Год назад +2

    Nate Diaz has nothing to gain by fighting Ferguson and Nate knows that. Conor should fight Ferguson in May or be stripped of the belt. Khabib should then fight the winner in September. That's two money fights. Now if Conor wants to go box fine. Hand over the belt. The same can be said about Bisping. I am sick of Tony F wining though. Sit down, shut up. You are not fighting for the title because Mr. McGregor has it and he NEVER defends titles. They way Ferguson talks he makes it seem like Khabib always has a problem making weight. This was the second time EVER. Look at this from Khabibs side. He was promised a title shot at UFC 205 -Conor got it. He was then promised the next title shot. Dana then says Conor is taking 10 months off. Conor didn't even know about this. He just wanted the holidays off and time around the birth of his son in April. So UFC 209 would have been perfect. Dana has something in the works for Conor that is why he made an interim title so quick.
