whittaker vs anderson here is hoping. It would be a tough fight to get anderson to sign for, but offering whittaker anyone else in the division isnt really fair at this stage i wouldnt of thought and plus if you look below everyone else is booked. Unless we get Hector Lombard vs Whittaker. dont know how keen i would be to see that, tough fight and i want whittaker to keep this roll on.
Yeah Silva makes sense, and don't think they are getting Hunt to fight anytime soon, so will need some sort of aussie flavour in there somewhere to draw the local fans (probably early prelims again). Either way still going to head down to watch it, short flight n all.
i dunno about that i follow mark hunts manager on twitter. he seems to think they might have something sorted.
Hunt and his manager have been in LA. Manager posted something along the lines of "meetings done, ready for war"
So Connor carried on like an idiot because they didn't have a second belt for him
The second belt being his FW title which wasn't on the line and he was supposed to bring himself.
In the end they rushed someone backstage and borrowed Woodley's belt, and he was none too keen from some reports.
Also pretty hilarious that they don't trust Weidman to stay healthy, or Romero to stay clean, they that had Jacare on tap, training, cutting weight and weighing in, just in case they needed an alternate.
People love to hate on Conor - and each to their own.
I have been a fan ever since he fought on the Fox Sports debut in Boston (when Chael Sonnen headlined).
I flew to Vegas for UFC 189 - and it was amazing. Easily the best UFC event I've ever been to (no mean feat, that list includes 148, 159, 175, and 193, along with a few Aussie fight nights in Sydney and Brisbane).
Basically every fight McGregor has had, the self proclaimed "traditionalists" have doubted him, and tried to belittle the "casuals" who love watching him.
Yet.... here we are. Not only did he beat Eddie, it was a one-sided beat down. Boarderine embarrasing that Conor just walked straight through the "champ" without raising a sweat.
Whether you like his antics or hate the trash talk, he deserves the uttermost respect for what he has acchieved.
