Feel like peeps are writing Conor off from the get go, and that's exactly why I believe he is gonna obliterate khabib. Every huge fight Conor shows up and gives almost anyone the work. he's gonna come out and throw a spinning heal kick to the body first round and will March forward the whole fight, even if he is taken down he will come back the next round and March forward. The key is if connor can get back up a couple times throughout the fight. That being said I believe Ferguson is the best in that division and would beat both.

Oh boy did Conor act like an idiot today. He may very well have a huge substance problem.

Connor embarrassed both khabib and Ali, he judges peoples character so well, a trait Faber caught on to way back. Not only did he spill the absolute truth to the world about the whole situation, he did it very aggressively and without doubt khabib was anxious and uncomfortable being there. I wonder what's going to happen to khabib if Connor slaps him to ground while still talking all that **** as he did Mendes and countless others. Best part of whole press conference was 'I **** ON BUS' 'I **** ON BUS' .

it's amazing how the UFC is making that little felony of mcgregor into a hyping up promo making it look like mcgregor did the right thing ... UFC is hitting a new low with hyping up mcgregor
one would come to think whether they would even go to the length of fixing/fixed his fights ....

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 6 of 12 Winners, 1 Perfect, 355 Points   |   Tied for 1517th

Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor
Khabib Nurmagomedov, TKO, R2
I probably won't watch this fight. I've enjoyed watching both of these guys fight, and this fight is awesome and historic. But McGregor is a disgrace to martial arts. Sad because his technique is fantastic, and his style inspiring. He used to have clever lines, now he just spouts off garbage and attacks people in busses.

Ferguson vs. Pettis
Tony Ferguson, DEC
Not sure if this will be a tuneup fight for Ferguson, or a ridiculous war between two wildly creative MMA practitioners. Either way, Probably going to be a great fight.

Lewis vs. Volkov
Alexander Volkov, TKO, R2
Hard to imagine a fight between two veteran HWs that are still improving, but here it is! Hopefully a great fight.

St. Preux vs. Reyes
Ovince St. Preux, SUB, R1
Scintillating. This is the type of fight I live for in higher weight classes. Reyes might be overwhelming for OSP, in which case we may see a somewhat brutal shut down, but I think veteran craft and outstanding subs are in the near future.

Waterson vs. Herrig
Felice Herrig, SUB, R3
Cool I guess. I think Felice is quite a bit larger than Waterson, and considering her ability to choke people... Hm.

Pettis vs. Formiga
Sergio Pettis, DEC
Formiga is more interesting to me, but chances are Pettis out strikes him by some wide margin, so...

Evinger vs. Ladd
Tonya Evinger, SUB, R3
Great fight, probably too much for Ladd. That being said, I could see her walking Evinger down and landing a lot of damage early on.

Luque vs. Turner
Vicente Luque, SUB, R1
I guess this fight is happening for some reason. Shouldn't Luque have a top 15 opponent, or something close? Odd. Maybe UFC is starting to build up prospects more on PPV nights, to try to get them some more exposure.
