Poirier finished Brandao in the first round too. Rather than getting carried away with Conor's win I think they should match him up with Poirier and take it from there.
Conor looked good for sure, I dont really hold Brandao in that high of a regard tho so I'm still looking for something more out of him. If the match gets made with Poirier and he handles himself well then thats a different story
Cole Miller trashes Conor McGregor's UFC Dublin win, insists only comparison to Ronda Rousey is 'they're both blond'
Brandao was actually a late replacement for Miller, who injured his hand in training camp and was forced to withdraw from his "Notorious" match up. But that didn't stop him from providing his mixed martial arts (MMA) assessment on Sherdog Radio (via MMA Fighting):
"I thought he looked pretty solid. It's pretty easy to look good when everything's made for you to look good. He got to fight in his home town with all those people there supporting him. He got a full camp of preparation when his opponent didn't. I don't think anyone can really judge Diego. He got in there and like I said, he didn't get his full camp. I think when these people are spoon-fed what their opinions should be they start saying the same stuff they've already been hearing from the UFC and the brass. I did see something where Dana said Conor reminds him of Ronda Rousey. That's a pretty bold statement. I told my brother they're both blond. That must be it."
And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
Maybe you shouldnt have gotten hurt Mr.Miller. Then you wouldnt be so goddamn bitter - you would have been the one ZzZzZzZ on the octagon and not diego.
Props to Brandao for taking the fight under those conditions, if McGregor turned the fight down he would have deserved to get the Jones treatment.
Im curious to see what happens if the Conor train gets derailed. At the moment the UFC is putting alot of eggs in one basket with him. Quit a bit of hype for a guy that has 3 fights.
