    No love for our boy Whittaker? New interim Middleweight champ.

    I think he knocks Bisping out in the 2nd round.

    Also, Romero is definitely juiced. 40 years old with that kind of muscle mass, natural, is basically unheard of. I think in the years to come his samples will test positive for something we can't test for right now.

    Bisping is under rated .
    He`s fought the whos who of middle weights . And those that beat him generally got popped for PEDs after wards .

    War Bobby !

    This is true, but Bisping has a suspect chin and Rob hits hard as ****. Rob is definitely gonna need to work on his cardio for this one, but I think Rob has better kickboxing and hits much harder.
     
  10. Anyone else looking forward to UFC 229?

    I like the way McGregor fights but I hate how mouthy he is. I want Khabib to knock him out but I don't think he has the power, if he's going to win it's probably going to be by submission.

    I rarely find the time to watch MMA these days but I'll be tuning in. A part of me hates buying into the McGregor hype engine but it's a compelling match up.

    Stylistically, you'd say Khabib is a tough match up, but I'm not so sure he's got what it takes. He reminds me a little of Rousey in that his strengths can be suffocating but his approach in closing the distance is pretty suspect.

    Love to see him maul Connor ala vintage Matt Hughes but I see him coming in, throwing school yard punches and getting countered hard.

  12. Agree, I'd like to think Khabib will fight smart though. But I'm not so sure.

    Regardless of the outcome, I'd love a 3rd McGregor Diaz fight. I love the Diaz brothers.
     
  13. Not really into MMA that much these days. Unfortunately with title vs title supermatches and Brock Lesnar getting big matches while in the WWE. Not to mention all of my fave fighters either retiring or waning, it's lost that competitive feel to me and seems like a circus. Still tune in when the Aussies are fighting.

    I like Conor's style in the octagon, so I will cheer for him, even though, he's one of the biggest circus guys.

    Only chance McGregor has is to beat him inside the first two rounds. If that doesn't happen, Khabib will flog him

    They are really losing their edge these days. It used to be the top guys fight to settle who is the king of the division but Dana is starting to bow to these fighters with their match ups. Diaz hasn't fought in two years and the dude is in his prime. Its unacceptable in my books to not have a star attraction in your organisation not fighting for such a long period especially when they weren't injured. And Connor just walks back in and says he is fighting Khabib or no one is bullshit too. Dana really needs to stand up to them and realise that fans really caught on to this because there was no politics in the match making to begin with. It was your the champ and your the number 1 contender so your fighting. Its becoming a lot like boxing

  16. Do you reckon that's cause McGregor will get gassed quickly?

    Yeah and ring rust will take over too. Plus, McGregor hasn't exactly ever looked good fighting 5 rounds of an absolute war. Khabib on the other hand goes hard over 5 rounds and has the edge in fitness over McGregor. This fight will be a war and if it goes past 2 rounds, Khabib will grind him down piece by piece
     
  18. Who ya'll got today?

    I think Khabib will probably win, but I'm still rooting for McGregor, I love that little irish prick.

    Opposite for me. As much as I think Khabib has the tools, I think Connor's control of distance and timing could see him land something big early.

    Would be happiest if Khabib dumps his ass and hammers him through the floor though. Aside from a welcome dose of humility, I think a lose for Connor will take some leverage out of his hands, make him work his way up for another shot.

    On another note, crazy fight between Pettis and Ferguson. Pettis needed to finish him when he had him hurt, but Ferguson rode it out, got his breath back and came back hard.

    Staged as hell.

    Makes for great promoting for the re-match where McGregor will win.
