That "step into our world" tagline needs to go far, far away.

Good lord this Dublin crowd needs to be imported to the US PPV quickly.   An amazing atmosphere to the point you couldn't even hear the announcers or anything else.  

 

Plus they are trying to bring back WHOOMP THERE IT IS in 2014   :lol:

Yeah, I am gonna safely assume Cole Miller would get smashed by McGregor.

 

Of course he was.  They are going all in Dan Hardy style on McGregor.  He won't have a tough fight until he fights for the title.

Too bad that Dublin biggest indoor venue only seats 9,500, they could easily sell out a 20,000 seat venue.  That's the problem of going to markets that don't have basketball/hockey arenas.

Define tough fight. You mean a top 10 FW? He'll certainly fight Poirier (if that's where they're going for 178) and that's no gimme.

I would guess that Conor/Dustin would be basically be taking the slot on the 178 card that Cowboy/Cerrone was going to take.

This was a fun little show. Crowd was great. I still put Big Nog knocking Schaub out in Brazil as the greatest crowd in UFC history though.
