    Is it right that Conor can take this route to getting a fight with Khabib eventually and does Cerrone have more of a chance at welter v Conor?

    McGregor one punches him in the first. Perfect style matchup for a return fight for McGregor coming off a lay-off. Cerrone has no range/distance. Only knows one way to fight , straight forward. Has no defense and can’t fight going backward. I’m stunned if cowboy makes it out of the first.
    If McGregor gets in there with masvidal he a dead man. he will have a better chance to beat masvidal then either diaz bro because he’s a tech sharpshooter with power. But he has a punchers chance only. Even if he cracks masvidal I doubt masvidal goes out. Expect another long layoff because McGregor will get beat worse then you’ve ever seen.

    Scale of 1-10, likelihood of McG getting the stoppage?

    8/10 chance Cowboy gets stopped before the 3rd. Unless he changes his style to hit and get out of range which i don't think he can. His chin is too easy to find, or he really has to go at Conors legs with non stop low kicks.
    UFC are banking on a Mcgregor win otherwise they would put him with Justin at LW.
    Cowboy is the lamb so McGregor can leap frog the other guys that would kill him for a title and it makes me sick.

    What's more troubling is that Cerrone said that he is happy to lose so long as the fans get a great fight. That tell's you all you need to know. He has a loser's mentality and isn't going to use all his tools to win the fight. So McGregor is fighting a guy who is not and has never been elite, coming off 2 stoppage losses and has stated that he's happy to lose. And as you say this will leapfrog Mcgregor over legit guys who would brutalize him these days. What a circus.

    You just have to see the twinkle in Danas eyes talking about Mctapper, if the **** he had done in any other sporting organisation he would of been banned for life years ago.
    The pathetic way Dana lifts him up and can't give any logic as to why is flat out ****ing creepy

    Yep It's all about milking the money out of the dumb casual fans . I'm absolutely cringing at the thought of what circus event Dana has planned for his collaboration with Floyd Mayweather next year. You just know it will be a complete farce.

    I think McGregor can beat anyone standing at 155. At 170 he becomes too sluggish. Power is there but his punches aren't as snappy.

    There`s a vid on youtube talking about how Conor has bulked up to take advantage of Cerrone being a slow starter, to get the early KO because Conor won`t be able to get a late KO because of his bad stamina.

    I think Fergie can take Connor`s power and walk him down with his high workrate, if he can get past the early rounds against Conor he would KO a gassing Conor later in the bout.

    He had the same admiration for Rousey before she got exposed, he seems obsessed by anyone that is the hot news at that point.

    Has to be by the 3rd, because Conor will start to gas.

    Potentially. But I also think it could just as likely end up being the time where his tendency to get caught and hurt comes back to haunt him.

    Hope Cowboy gets it done just to see the look on Dana's face wondering what to do with his McLover next.

    Conor Is far too good for cowboy, I reckon it won't go past one round. Cowboy is game but isn't tough enough to take it deep for conor to gas, I just think it's a bad match up for cowboy.
