Well if you watched any of justins fights he gets rocked almost always, he does recover well but no not great.
Yeah will brooks did over power mike twice and yes he is way too entitled.
He shoulda fought a low top 15 guy and been made to do so not get to be backup for title.

 I hate how the UFC order card, Use the biggest stars name to promote prospect and don't put the  piss break fight on the PPV,  Eye vs Calderwood is just gonna bore the **** of the crowd. Use the time to promote Arman Tsurkan, The next big thing in the sport instead. They did it better then last Conor card because atlest they have my future Wife Ribas, Hakeem Dawudu, Shane Burgos and Dan Hooker on the main card

Per Chandlers team, his fight is not a done deal either. They say there are a few hurdles left to make it happen but the goal is for Chandler to be fighting on the 23rd whether its Hooker or Gaethje.

Conor has the advantage inside 3 Rounds.  Everything after that, i can see it favoring Poirer.  About a third of Poirer's victories end in some type of submission but with Conor having 70% Takedown Defense it doesn't seem too likely that Poirer takes him down.  If i were Poirer i would be hitting up the Diaz brothers.  Conor looks strong in his training so he's probably going for the finish early.  We will see, either way i'll have my popcorn ready for the fireworks!

Poirier would beat the life essence out of Nate Diaz and Nick Diaz wouldn't be able to do a damn thing.
Poirier's boxing is superior to those 2 bozos.
Connor has been gone for so long, no one knows if he is able to outclass poirier in a rematch.
Connor has bulked up and is conditioning himself to get the KO again.
If Mcgregor is able to win without illegal blows....i'll give that man his respect.
Nate Diaz was never a high level fighter, just a tough one....and he walked down mcgregor in both fights. 
I will take Dustin in the biggest fight of 2021

Since their first fight
Dustin...more fight experience,more durability, more strength, more confidence, more mma training

Connor....more retirement , more whiskey, more drama, more money, more drunk statements, more weight lifting

I really want to put money on Marina Rodriguez at  more then +200. Because Ribas never fought a stand up fighter and Dern the only good fighter she fought. And don't act like Esparza is not the best grappler at straweight so it no suprise that happen. The fight pretty close to 50 50, I slightly lean Ribas, I think about the bet on the day

 Esparza lost the battle against Rodriguez. I don't understand how the judges judge the fight

Gotta admire Ribas doing the splits right before getting KO'd. That's a new one.
