Mendes should have this.  The question is how prepared is he going to be.  On a bad day he should be able to beat this guy because generally speaking wrestling can neutralize a striker on any given day.  

But Mendes' striking has been really fucking good.  He's knocked out a lot more guys than Conor and has looked better at it too.  Also he's knocked out far better competition than COnor.  I think the size difference will play a factor, it might at least.  

Would love to see Dana's disgusted face when he's putting the belt around Mendes

id like mcgregor to win cause it would be fun for the sport but i really dont see it happening... but then i start searching predictions and all over the net people and sites are picking mcgregor so i dont know what to believe, one has to try to not jump on the hypetrain  :D
but in all honesty there's 4 or 5 top guys in the division i would conor would have a hard time beating

if conor can use his reach advantage while avoiding the takedowns i can see him winning but thats a big if... he throws a lot of sloppy kicks, doesnt take too much for mendes to take advantage of that and use to set up takedowns... he is taller but he isnt that much taller... then we have the endurance, mendes went 5 rounds with aldo, conor never went 5 rounds, conor only went 3 rounds once his whole career, mendes gone 3 rounds 9 times and im pretty sure they train at a very hard pace at alpha male.

it doesnt even have to be a spectacular win, it could be one of those mendes puts conor on his back every round for 5 rounds and wins by decision...

Post by: King Shizzo on July 10, 2015, 04:44:43 PM
If McGregor can avoid Chad's power, and stuff his inevitable takedown attempts, I think Connor's unique striking ability and leg kicks will take it's toll on Mendes. Both fighters are used to dominating their opponents either by KO/TKO or winning by unanimous decisions.

Mendes has an edge, because he has faced the best fighter in Featherweight division (Aldo) twice, and has gone a full 5 rounds with the champ.

This is Conor's opportunity to shine though, and he knows it. A loss to Mendes will pop his attention whore balloon, and be a major career blow for him. I don't believe that McGregor will let Mendes get inside and negate his length advantage with dirty boxing and clinches.

Conor will wisely keep his distance, and pick Mendes apart with strikes from all angles. I don't think McGregor will run through Mendes by any means, but I do think he will win convincingly enough to justify the hype and setup an even bigger fight with Aldo.



Lawler vs. MacDonald 2:

Robbie Lawler doesn't strike me as the type of guy who will be able to keep the belt for any length of time. Lawler won the first matchup via split decision, but I think that Rory has/will learn from that fight. Rory is more of a tactician, whereas Lawler is more of a tough as nails, brawler type.

I think this second fight being 5 rounds favors Rory. Lawler has been known to gas late in fights, and wouldn't be surprised if MacDonald uses those championship rounds to his advantage. Look for a weary Lawler to get taken down late in the fight, and for Rory to finish him off there.


My Picks:

McGregor

MacDonald

With Conor, not sure how much is hype/acting vs. fight mindset. Faber was clearly just wishing him luck, but being in Mendes's camp and all ...

He might just be that intense, who knows.

Interesting analysis. Think I mostly agree, too.

In fact, being a huge Lawler fan, I don't think he deserved that belt at all. Hendricks won that fight. And you're right about him gassing. Rory doesn't usually trade on his feet, so if Robbie doesn't catch him slipping early, Mac'll probably take him down and dominate on the ground.

Which, I think, is pretty much what you said.

One simple rule change would change the sport on its head and make it better. Make the weigh ins an hour before fight time for everybody. Much healthier and safer and closer to the real world. Most of these clowns don't belong in the weight classes they fight in. Let them have to be at weight an hour before and watch what happens to most of them. A lot of them that don't belong in the class to begin with either won't make weight or will get their ass beat because they're weak as fuck...

McGregor is a perfect example. The guy walks around at a lean 170+......so why does he feel the need to deplete to 145 for?

They do it to gain an edge in size and strength over fighters who are naturally closer to the weight class that they fight in.

Rumble Johnson was another example. The guy would walk around at 225-230 and then try to cut to 185.

He is much more suited for the 205 pound division.

Ron has created quite the conundrum. If they moved threads to the sports, MMA, religion, and general topics sections, then the G&O would suffer.

As it stands, many of the subforums are absolutely useless. I love Getbig, but that is the honest truth.


Just look at the demographic of Getbig's posters: Probably the majority are 21-50 year old males. 

We all know there are a ton of sports fans on Getbig. So how on earth is the sports subforum dead?

im still on the fence i had my money on aldo that i thought was EASY MONEY... now im not so sure anymore even though the odds are even better for mendes winning

lawler vs rory is too hard to pick IMO, not worth the risk. im leaning towards rory winning as it was close last time and i feel rory being the younger of the two is the one evolving more and getting better and better.

Random observations:

1) Spinning backfist is a bullshit 'Hail Mary' move, don't care what anybody says.

2) If the victor thanks God after a win, it's fair to assume the Almighty provides said competitor an unfair advantage; his future opponents, therefore, should be allowed to level the playing field via PEDs.

Guy took a headline fight on two weeks notice and was crushing Conman on the ground.

Whole thing is vexing. In the interview Chad did not say a word about the supposed tko or whatever they categorize it. ::)

Didnt connor dare dana to put up $3mil for a round 2 knockout?

I was wondering if the fix was in considering all the hype and the rebuild back to Aldo. I don't think the ref was was aware of the time left since he was focused on the fight. he stopped it when mendes wasnt responding back and just covering up. Legit stoppage. Herb let it continue on the ground when connor was asking for it to be stood up. Then again who knows.....

Good night of fights throughout.

He also allowed a couple of elbow spikes from McGregor too.

I was wondering about the potential for a fix myself considering that insane bet that dana never accepted, the buildup in getting ireland backed hero which would get more european eyeballs and open wallets. There was a lot on the line for connor and the UFC to lose if something came undone. I think dana said they plan on spending even more for the impending aldo /connor re-matchup. We now know that Pride wasnt above fixing their fights on occassion and allowing PED's. One  thing is certain - if the UFC gets caught fixing a fight they are done. Would the Fertitas risk their reputation?. The refs taint theirs? Eventually if there is a fix its a matter of time before someone talks and things come apart. Too much on the line for the UF C to throw away.

As far as tonights fight goes it looked pretty legit in terms of the stoppage.
Indomitable will triumphs?

As a known gambler i would be very suprised if Dana does not bet on the outcomes. He probably does it through a workaround so it doesnt lead back to him. It is Vegas after all.

As for connors bet he cant openly accept it since he is the promoter. Last thing you want to happen is the government digging into your internal affairs. They are apparently reopening an investigation on the UFC

That wasn't a fix Mendez was trying to take his head off. I'm impressed with Connor he toyed with Mendez he laughed off all his power shots keeping his hands down most the time. He escaped two gullitiones and a  crucifix he got back to his feet. His ability to relax and throw with such fluidity is what sets him apart. He does need to bring in some high level American wrestlers into his camp. Connor didn't change his style at all for Mendez he destroyed him on the feet easily.

Fix fix fix. 

Just dreadful.  Mendes gets up after riding McGregor the entire round lowers his right hand and just takes a shot and drops.  He would NEVER be gassed after riding McGregor the entire round.

Aldo hit Mendes 100 times harder and he never TKO'ed him.

The UFC was never going to let that cash cow McGregor lose that fight.

He needs to stop this. Mendes took advantage of it big time, and it's gonna cost him a fight eventually. One shot can put anyone to sleep.

Look at Anderson - wasn't even a good punch.

Didnt look like a KO just looked like he went down by own will because he felt dominated on his feet and was exhausted. Too bad because with better cardio he could have moved better and closed the distance like in the first round. also he should have done a better job with hammerfists and elbows on the ground.

So now we will never hear the end of this annoying loudmouth great...

How on earth was Lawler losing that fight? Said he was down on all cards before the TKO. Only lost the 3rd, maybe 4th, but dominated one and two.
