McGregor hype will soon be forgotten, he will get beaten by Aldo next time and then Dana will slowly start cutting the zero's on his cheques and jump on the dick of the next promising fighter.

Dana's only hope is Rousey IMO.

Conor will get beat again in his next 2 fights max whereas I can see Ronda coming back and dominating again.

Jon Jones Cormier is getting spicy. JJ is going to wipe him out and I cannot wait.

Interesting to see whether Conor takes the advice he gave to Mendes and take some time off before fighting again

Doubt it tbh, he will definitely fight at UFC 200 on July 9th. Personally think he will try to fight at UFC 198 to keep the hype train moving.

I'm surprised they've filled the next few months with such big fights, imagine the card they could have had for 200. It's a shame Thompson didn't get a go at Lawler but hope Condit gets a rematch.

I think Faber might have a chance of winning vs. Cruz after seeing how his knee was affected by the kicks from Dillashaw in the later rounds.

Jones is the best I've seen since Silva was at his peak, will be interesting to see if the layoff has cost him. Cromier is solid but Jones takedown defence is tremendous and have to fancy him to have too much for DC in the stand up as per the last fight.

Anderson Silva back training after the Bisping fight, not sure who he can face next or when he'll fight? Possibly 200?

Mousassi is good, will be difficult for Silva. If he doesn't do his arrogant showboating then he can beat most, but he'd rather dance around than knock someone out.

Does nothing for me; Two counter-strikers, one at the end of his career and the other who stays in second gear for 90% of the fight and tries to snake charm you to sleep.

As for Conor the hype train isnt over but it's fucked. All this 2-belt, 3-belt nonsense has finally been quashed, as it should. He should never fight at WW ever again, I think even LW might be a stretch. Realistically he didnt even go up 2 weight classes, Conor walks around at 172 and Nate about 175. Basically 2 natural WW's just didn't cut like they normally do, one down to LW and the other nearly kills himself to get to FW. I don't believe in MMA Math but RDA tossed Nate around and Nate dismantled Conor, he isnt getting that LW belt any time soon, if ever.

Saw that earlier, makes no sense at all. The fight wasn't even close why bother with a rematch?

He sort of needs to beat Diaz again before he fights anyone else cause everybody will just take the piss out of him otherwise at the pre fight conferences etc.

If he gets beat his career is in the dumps though
