    Connor is watching too much WWE. Snatching up the belt is straight out of the current storyline with the WWE IC belt.

  • TheCerealKiller

    There’s a rule among sports, you don’t touch the title unless you win the title. That’s a terrible curse to grab another man’s belt and parade it around. I’ll laugh if Aldo gets “hurt” a month out from the fight.

    • mmafanguy

      I’m not sure what you mean by that… Is this because Aldo is superstitious or because you think he is actually scared of Conor? To me Aldo look annoy and angry but not scared.

    • Illanoid

      Indeed, that is an unwritten rule. Conor is not disrespecting Aldo but himself here.

  • Sir_Roy

    Need to earn it first Conor. There’s getting inside someone’s head and space, then there’s being extremely unsportsmanlike. His other shenanigans notwithstanding, Conor just p!ssed all over the line in one fell swoop.

    • earlsimmons

      I dont know if you are that gullible or just going full retard but if you cant tell this crap is all an act to hype the fight and make money i feel sorry for ya. And here you are getting offended about conor urinating on some imaginary line. Get a clue.

      • Sir_Roy

        Cute kid. I get it. I’m under your skin now for calling you out on your idiocy. You’re stalking me in other threads. Definition of the term “butt hurt”. Troll away. Some I’ll respond to cuz I feel like doing so, but you’ll make the ignore list before too long. Your entertainment value is definitely very limited.

        And yeah, I don’t know they’re just hyping a fight or that this is what embedded is all about … nope, not at all. Y’know, for most with half a brain, the term “shenanigans” would be a dead give away. As I stated before; good luck!! You’re really going to need it meandering through this life with such obvious handicaps.

        • earlsimmons

          Yes completely butt hurt i can barely sit. And keep telling yourself that i am stalking you like you are that important. Typical lib thinking you are the center of the universe. And trust me i make way more than your minimum wage salary. So handicap or not im doing better in life than you. Stay salty.

          • Sir_Roy

            “Derp, I make more money than you do, hyuck, dur. So there.”

            Dear lord, you haven’t evolved out of grade school yet.

            I’m sure you have earned no less than 12 black belts, 3 world titles, own a yacht and are running in the next elections. Bet you’re secretly Batman too.

            Keep hiding behind internet anonymity bud. I’m sure your fantasy is far better than your reality. Again, good luck!!

    • Timothy Malone

      Agree, I generally don’t care about all the talking but this is the first thing McGregor has done that is over-the-line disrespectful. It isn’t just disrespecting Aldo, it is disrespecting any UFC champion who has had a title. That is something you earn.

  • Hyperbole

    I watched this and it met expectations. Connor buzzing like a mosquito, playing games even though he’s already landed the big fight. But what seemed odd was the little pep talk Jose’s people had about making Connor mad (which doesn’t seem to be the case at all). It just smacked of wishful thinking and trying to keep the fighter’s confidence high. I think this constant show might be getting to him. It’s hard to tell. He’s got the skill to sh!t stomp him, but doubt has a way of derailing the best plans. I know, I’m falling for this stupid WWE show…

  • Irish Sweetness

    You’re supposed to flip when somebody grabs your belt. Aldo wilted like a girl. McGregor has this fight won long before he actually goes in and knocks him out.

    • RoBEERtoe

      You’re an idiot. Obviously don’t understand mind games very well. Just because YOU might flip like a little girl doesn’t mean Aldo is supposed to.

    • taylor2008

      Conor is going to get KO’d. Aldo has class. Conor has none! Aldo is keeping it cool for the cage. Conor is doing what he is doing because he knows he got himself into a shitstorm. Aldo is going to teach him a lesson.

  • taylor2008

    I really hope Aldo KO’s this idiot bad! Conor is nothing but a Big mouth

  • Stephen Kennedy

    connor is a perfect example of a idiot
