Conor at 155? Can they handle him?

Even though Conor stated that there's no chance he'll relinquish the 145 belt and he defiantly wants to be a two weight champion, I can't see John Kavanagh wanting him to take that risk by staying at that weight due to the punishing cut Conor goes through. Dana has already stated Egder get's what he wants after destroying Chad.

My guess is, (if he doesn't suffer this alleged 6 month lay off by the Nevada Athletic Commission due to his wrist) then I see him fighting Edger at UFC 198 at 155 with the winner fighting the winner of Cerrone vs Anjos at UFC 200. Yep, I see Edger moving up again, not forgetting he's already held the 155 belt...it's the money fight and I expect him to chase it and move up with Conor.

There's not much left in the featherweight div right now. Chads had a ruff year, Holloway didn't come close to winning a round vs Conor, Cub got schooled terribly by Holloway. With the exception of Aldo, Lamas is the only fight out there at FW but not as exciting as maybe Conor vs Nurmagomedov. That's the fight that will define Conor as a true great and that's the fight I really hope to see in 2016. Khabib is no "stuck in the mud fighter" and will give Conor a true test.

As for Aldo? He's heads gone. Conor did a right psychological job on him. Damaged goods now! As for the rest in that div, they've fought each other enough to know who's the main man and that was Aldo until Conor came on the seen.

How do you think that left hook will go down at Lightweight? As he often states, these FW can't take that punch. Can these LW's take Conor McGregor?

Marco, I thought you was being serious with your last post until I re-read your verdict on the 1st round between Cruz vs Dillashaw.

Don't tell me RDA had fallen for Conors mind games already. He'd have done well to have shaken CM hand at the end and show he wasn't effected by what was said. Not shaking was a big tell imo.

A bit too early to say he has fallen for his mind games.

Sage Northcutt's hype has now been layed to rest. That was probably the weakest tap I've ever seen. With RR getting schooled and Sage being ...well...pathetic, that only leaves Conor left. If he loses then Dana will have to rush J.Jones back asap to keep the 2016 train rolling.

Just watched the Kimbo vs 5000 fight. Thought I was watching it in slow mo until I noticed Big John walking around at normal pace.

Seems like 5k is still in Hospital due to retina damage.
