    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.

    Prove yourself in the cage, and then I'll pay attention. For now, he's just a talker. He's got an awfully tall hill to climb, and he may very well be in for a rude awakening.

    It will be hard to achieve the goal of winning the belt in the time-frame he says if you aren't even granted a title shot!
    Ok, I am eating my words now. Connor has got my attention.

    Not really. Its easy to hype up a fighter. The UFC is fortunate to have so many fighters they could hype up. Connor is just Dana's favorite toy right now, because he has to potential to open up the European market 10x more than Bisping ever did.

    I am a fan of Connor, but I dont think he will hold the title anytime soon. I need to see him face a strong wrestler before I fully hop on the hypetrain. He had a good fight with Dustin, I hope he continues to improve.

    Favorite fighters: Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, Michael Johnson, Jose Aldo, Chris Weidman.

    What I find most humorous is that Conor blatantly and repeatedly told everyone why beating Poirier wasn't a huge accomplishment. In every single interview I saw, he said he puts his head down and he gets rocked or dropped very easily.
