    yes. I wasnt saying Conor should move up to fight Faber. I was saying Conor v Faber would be a good fight

    and at 150 there are more exciting fights for Conor.

    sorry if that was confusing

    If Aldo, Mendes, and Edgar all retire maybe then but he still has to beat Poirer, Swanson and others and I wouldn;t bet on him to do so.

    Way to much hype fora guy that has only beat one somewhat relevant fighter

    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

    Wow cry me a river so was mcgregor just supposed to not fight so that it could be 'fair' to his opponent to get a full camp?

    Just to play Devil's advocate; Why wouldn't he want to fight a lesser ranked, not fully prepared opponent in his hometown?

    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.
