    Can Conor McGregor beat Jose Aldo?


  2. No... No he cannot. Aldo's striking is on another level. His leg kicks put Uriah Faber on bed rest for weeks after their fight and he is a legitimate blackbelt in BJJ. McGregor has been submitted twice by lesser opponents.

    Personally I think Chad Mendez would destroy McGregor

    Chad Mendez got to beat Ricardo Lamas first which he probably will.

  4. It's pretty obvious that the UFC was trying to build this fight for a while now. They've had the tendency to feed their European rising stars sub par opponents to build a fan base on that side of the world. They did the same with Bisping. I'm not saying McGregor isn't a great fighter but I am saying the UFC hasn't given him too many tough featherweights

  5. The dude is something else and has a style unlike any I've seen. I don't think he ever got his heart rate up he fights so calm. The Aldo fight will be fun.

  6. He wont be truly legit till he beats Aldo,, its gunna be interesting fer sure.

  7. I hate him but I think he may beat Aldo, good thing is Edgar will crush him, no questions about it

    Edgars a punching bag with a huge heart, that would be a good tilt, but no way Frankies crushin him. Hes had alot of concussions ( Maynard) and I dont think hes the fighter he was year and half ago.

    not sure if you watch the ufc dude but 2014/2015 frankie is by FAR the best edgar. You should go watch the edgar/swanson fight

    I will happily give you 3/1 odds on any amount of $$ that frankie crushes mc gregor

    There is a reason the UFC cash cow hasn't fought a wrestler in his entire career

    By this logic, Aldo is the only legit fighter at FW. You don't have to be a champion to be legit.

    Hes had a rather easy road to a title shot wouldnt you say.

    Compare mc gregors run to rory mc donald, he had to go 9-0 in his current run fighting absolute killers. Its a bit of a joke

    You can't compare depth between FW and WW. As a whole, FW hasn't been very prominent in the US for nearly as long as WW. When you look at Rory's wins, the only really impressive victories are against Woodley and Tarec. I thought the stoppage against Condit was BS and that would've completely changed the WW picture had Rory been able to survive 15 more seconds. Conor is actually on a longer winning streak than Rory of 5 and 3, respectively.

    So, how does he not face Lamas, Mendes, Edgar, Swanson, Bermudez but has a title shot.

    He hasnt fought a single top 5, only one top 10, but has a title shot, its embarrasing and proves rankings mean nothing

    Ranking have never meant anything. Cub and Dennis just lost recently. They not only lost but were finished and soundly defeated. You need fresh contenders and throwing him to Lamas, Mendes, or Frankie jeopardizes that. Plus, it's an entertainment business. Bitch all you want about how he got the shot, but you'll be watching.

  15. He got given the shot over Edgar, when edgar defeated swanson, ill say no more.

    Ofc ill be watching, praying he gets taught a lesson, but regardless, this or next fight itll happen

    I personally think Edgar > Aldo in the first fight, thought it was a poor decision

    What u mean dont know if I watch UFC? Maybe not as much as you Josh, I just watched the some of the Cub fight and yes, Frankie can still bang. I stand corrected. I agree with the wrestler comment as well. Cant bet ya cuz I live to far away.

    I just think Edgar will overwhelm mc Gregor

    Mc Gregor is legit, I'm probably picking him over aldo , I just don't think he should of got to aldo in the first place , that's all.

    2015 is an awesome year of mma!

    How well did the first Aldo/Edgar fight do on PPV?

  20. I'll be watching for sure. I love McGregor's intelligence and swagger in interviews and his fighting style.

    Why don't you just watch LHW/MW/WW As you're clearly about the ppv draws bro.

    Came you name an organization apart from UFC? Why do they even call it mma , they should call it UFC right?
