Still don't know if Connor has enough to beat a Frankie Edgar or Chad Mendes..

He got taken down by Dennis Siver. He doesn't. 

 

 

Yeah, all the "he trains with Gunnar!!!" replies ain't going to help him.  Dana and company have known it is his weakness since the beginning, hence this "amazing" run.  If Edgar or Mendes got on those legs, he'd be down the whole round.

 

 

He got taken down and easily got up to his feet and slipped his legs out.  So what?  

 

Siver has no wrestling. Like really none. Imagine somebody who has wrestled mostly their entire life, taking you down and being on top. It's a big difference then a fading aging former steroid abusing german kickboxer.

Yeah, McGregor may have gotten taken down but you never got the impression he was in any trouble. It was almost like he allowed Siver to do it just for shits and giggles.

 

Anyone figure out what exactly happened during the instructions for them to black out the screen?

Have you literally missed Frankie Edgar's entire UFC run?  Remember the "no one gets BJ Penn down and makes him stay down" thoughts?

Middle finger. Anytime there is partial nudity, a swear word, or a middle finger, we get the cutaway screen.

 

 

Funnily enough they didn't cut away on TSN in Canada, who used to cut away from so much stuff when they had WWE.

Good to see some genius on the station run a commercial for the Jones/Cormier PPV in the first ad break

Siver actually has very good MMA wrestling.  To say none would be a lie.  He's grinded out a few decisions before.

 

And I'm out of likes for the day.

Cerrone's momentum is going to be put to an end by Khabib.

And Aldo's going to destroy Conor. You know your opponents have been handpicked for you when Denis Siver is considered your toughest opponent to date.

 

Yeah no.  His toughest opponent to date was Dustin Poirier who was legit top 5 when he fought him.

Greg Savage ‏@TheSavageTruth 2m

.@Cowboycerrone says @TeamKhabib is most likely next for him.

 

I don't expect it to be soon as Cerrone said he is taking time off.

 

 

 

is Khabib's six UFC wins in a row without a title shot a record?

 

edit: 

damn, not really even that close.

8 wins: Jon Fitch, Gray Maynard

7 wins: Chuck Liddell, Jim Miller, George Sotiropoulos, Matt Brown, Rafael Assuncao
