Nate is going to get absolutely butchered with body kicks, jesus christ. Will Nick be cornering or does his silly suspension not allow him to corner his brother?

I'd love to see Nick step into the Octagon if McGregor beats Nate and call him out.

If you're not willing to die for it remove the word freedom from your vocabulary.

Win Win for Conor fans. If he wins we get to hear how he is the greatest thing walking for months again. If he loses, fighting at 170 is an extremely convenient excuse.

I like that McGregor is fighting someone kinda similar to himself here, apart from the kicks of course. Nate is not his brother, he rarely throws body shots, he is all about his his accuracy and timing throwing to that head from the southpaw stance.

It will be interesting to see who can work that game better... I get why people are heavily picking McGregor. But i foresee an interesting fight that might just be a harder night for McGregor than many think... certainly if it goes some rounds, Because Nate always takes a round to get his timing down.





Look at my belt ^^

The fight should be fun, no doubt, but it is ridiculous being a main event when we have a belt being disputed in the same card. This is what I mean about entertainment going over the sport and lets face it, whoever buys this PPV or goes to the fight will do it regardless of this fight being a main or co-main event, so money wise won't be a difference for UFC, so why not respect the only Champion putting her belt on the line by giving her and her challenger the main event?
Soojooko and Spite like this.

This is such great news. I love the 209 boys as they are tough as they come. I hope Nate is in pretty good shape so we get a great fight. Nate might be big enough to pull Conor to the mat.

SMOOTH

Why? Isn't this match up a last minute Frankenstein already? Both last bouts would be 5 rounders anyway.

Can non-main event, non-title fights be 5 rounds? I thought that was the rule... might be mistaken.
