RDA is the worst matchup for Conor

I'm really excited about this weekend and TJ vs Dominic Cruz

Yeah looking forward to Cruz coming back. Really hope he wins which I think he will.

So many great events to look forward to this year. I'm not a huge fan of Jon Jones' personnality but I think Cormier is just as bad and can't wait to watch him lose that belt.

Good news on Diaz also, hope he fights as soon as he can in August.

It's definitely a harder challenge for Conor. Edgar would've been the easier way out IMO.

Dillashaw/Cruz should be quality. Very good undercard aswell.

Yep, same here. Was looking forward to Miocic fighting Werdum almost more than Velasquez tbh.

Cruz Dillashaw card turned out to be pretty good. Cruz's speed is frightening.

McGregor looks to have started to get into RDA head already. The childrens names abuse was brilliant.

RDA looked absolutely stoic in the face off, don't think connor will get into his head the way he did with Aldo

Genuinely hope someone shuts the pikey up. He was entertaining at first, but now hes becoming tiresome and disrespectful, hopefully RDA will humble him.

But then nobody was saying Aldo was mindfucked prior to the fight, but now in hindsight.

The press week in Brazil will make a big effect on this fight I think. After all McGregor said in the first press, RDA will either make or break over there.

You can see how fucked off Aldo is in nearly every press conference they did. Squeezing his shoulders, ripping the belt off him, all the Brazilians cheering Conor on etc.
McGregors mind games were masterful and will never be bettered, amazing to watch the whole build up and be there at the fight. Not a man on earth it wouldnt have affected. Still very hard to know how good he is because its such a massive part of his game.

Ben Henderson has moved to Bellator! Reebok deal starting to bite?

With this Reebok deal, how much do fighters lose out on? I assume loads as it would cost Reebok millions per card to cover all the sponsorship.

Depends on the fighter, i think it's fair to say that the majority of fighters are worse off under the reebok deal

It would vary on the fighter surely - Big fighters will lose out on serious money.
