I think Mendes KOs Conor ''hype'' McGregor in the 1st round.

No way. Not happening. McGregor is going to prove too much for Chad and I believe it will be the other way around. Chad is going to make the mistake of thinking he can walk over and get in Conors face and we are ging to see another McGregor first round KO. 
Chad thinks McGregor is to be messed with and thinks he can hang on the feet with McGregor. 

Huge mistake.

How did they though? What is normal for you? Does he have to clear out the entire division so he never gets to defend it(if he wins)? It seems many who use that logic, seem desperate in the hopes he never has enough title defences.

Im not picking against Conner until he loses. That said, this could be a bad stylistic matchup for him, but i also thought the same about the poirier fight. Heart says Mendes but my wallet says the mad irishman

"Grrr."

@rappin yeah,it's not that Connor is not a good fighter, no there's no denying he's excellent it's just getting countered and taken down by Dennis Siver regardless of the fact that Siver's punches didn't hurt him, and that he popped right back up after getting taken down, is a not a good thing especially when you're facing the guy with the best counter-punching and wrestling in the division in Chad Mendes.

Can't wait to see Mendes **** McGregor up. McGregor has been all mouth. Mendes ran up on McGregor at the weigh-ins & McGregor looked scared like a *****
