It was crazy how quickly Holm gets into trouble when that TDD fails her.
Hope he is a good little money saver lol

Mcgregor isn't going anywhere. Although, i don't think we'll see him at 170 again. He looked fantastic in the first round though. I guess he kinda gassed himself a bit. He'll be back stronger.


Nightmare night for Dana. lol

I think he really wanted the rematch of Holm/Rousey.
Connor losing is just self explanatory.

You're insane if you think that... This was really a low risk high reward situation for him. Short notice opponent 2 weight classes above his last fight. Win the fight, you beat a good, name opponent who is bigger and has longer reach. Lose, and you lost against a name opponent who is bigger and has a longer reach.

The "hype train" was real, and he attempted to ride it to the moon. Why not right? Make as much money as you can while you can. This loss slowed it down a bit, but I highly doubt it will stop. Even if he starts losing at 155 he can still rule the 145 division again. Will he be as big a star as he was yesterday? I doubt it, but he won't be 'fading into oblivion' until the UFC itself does.

I'm confused on how you think it's low risk? I'd say its pretty risky fighting 2 weight classes above on short notice....

Low risk as in if he loses (like he did), not much happens with his career. He will still get the big fights at 145 and 155. 170 is just not for him. Life moves on

Low risk in terms of consequences of losing

Highest risk would be losing the belt to a 145er... Up from there you have losing to Frankie, etc... Losing to Nate Diaz is probably the best case if he's going to lose to someone. It doesn't affect anything at 155 and 145, and it allows him to test the waters at 170 which obviously won't work out.

Conor might not do well at 155. Remember, Nate usually fights at 155 and number 5 ranked. He might have to cut cut cut and beat smaller guys.

Joe Lauzon is a genius and called it again. Said Conors weight gain will affect his cardio.

If you missed the post fight press conference, this is basically whatt he said there too. Don't feel too bad, I think if anything this gave him the tools and motivation to be able to beat RDA when they do fight eventually [if RDA is still champion when Conor is done beating up some midgets ]

i actually think this will help conor earn more fans. it will hurt his mystique being able to beat anyone at any weight class, but how humble he was after the fight will earn some fans.

i've said for a while i was waiting for a loss to humble him a bit so i could become a fan. am one now.


im worried if he goes back to 145 and frankie puts him on his back tho.

Conor meant it when he says he's humble in victory and defeat. Shows up to the post presser, gives interviews... He won't get nearly as much hate as Ronda and rightfully so.

It really should be Holmes VS Rousey because they are both coming off losses.
