    If Aldo’s attack is to say “Conor’s talked his way into a lot of fights” … then it’s a little self defeating given it just so happens that he won all those fights as well. So if he’s trying to intimate that Conor has “talked his way” into his fight with him …

    Yes, Conor’s popularity won him an early title fight without plowing through the #1 & #2 contenders first. But let’s not pretend he didn’t have to win, and in EXTREMELY convincing manner, his last 5 UFC fights first.

    I get that Conor’s a polarizing individual. You either seem to hate him, or love him. I love his fighting style and the energy he brings to the sport. Certain of his shenanigans, not so much. I sure as sh!t am looking forward to this amazing card I can tell you all that much.

      No he didn’t fight the 1 or 2 contenders but not even the 3,4, or 5 he may have looked convincing but he has not fought 1 wrestler or a top 5 guy and looking convincing beating siver is not saying much but here he is fighting for a title it was his mouth and his arrogant bull that got him there. I will admit thought he is going to make a lot of money for the UFC with this fight and even though i can’t stand the guy i will be paying to watch the fight

        Dustin Poirier was ranked 5th in the division when Conor took him out. In one round.

          As much as I enjoy Conor Mcgregor as an entertainer and martial artist, I think everyone knows that Poirier was vastly overrated by the UFC. Poirier’s biggest victory came over Diego Brandao and he was nearly KO’d early in round one of that fight. The UFC also increased Poirier’s ranking without any basis in the months leading up to the McGregor fight. He was previously fluctuating in the 6-10 range of the UFC rankings.

            I wouldn’t put it past them. But do you adhere only to the UFC’s official rankings, or do you check out MMA rankings on a whole in general? I like to peruse a few to get a feel on who the real movers and shakers are. Those, the UFC has no leeway or leverage over. Honestly, I hadn’t even been paying attention to Poirier’s career until after the Conor fight due to all the ruckus.

      Only fight I was impressed with is the victory over Siver

    I never realized how much bigger Connor is compared to Aldo until this pas PR tour… Connor is gonna tear Aldo apart, Connor is better on his feet and aldo is a standup fighter so I say KO round 2

    • GuiloutineMelvinGuilliard

      Actually I agree wit you Conor is going to win for sure.. no doubt about that.. but I’m thinking either late 3rd or 4th round tko … aldo has just never met a dominant fighter like conor before. When Conor beats Aldo, he should jump to the 155 .. i can see him winnin gold there .. only person i see as a challenge is cowboy cerrone, otherwise he would tear through the remaining 155 and 145 . Nate diaz is underrated too

        bandwagon much?

        Connor and cowboy as the best of the best in MMA….LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Yeah Aldo has no striking ability whatsoever. He also has no grappling or TD’s. I don’t think he even knows about throwing leg kicks.
      It’s not like Aldo was a long time dominant champ or anything

    aldo will retain the featherweight champion and break down mcgregor.

    I bet 10 bucks on Aldo, he better win.
