    This thread is to discuss any and every thing regarding MMA, including news, UFC, Bellator, WSOF, etc, your own personal experiences and so on.

    To get this rolling, I recommend watching the UFC The Time Is Now conference which got me very excited for 2015 after a lackluster 2014 (star-wise of course, there were terrific fights in 2014).

    There were a shit load of fights announced since SL has been down but every card outside of the TUF Finale from here to the end of February looks great.

    Mir vs Bigfoot, Koscheck back vs Magny, Hendo/Mousassi at MW, Brown/Saff, Gastelum vs T-Wood etc.

    Phil Davis vs Ryan Bader added to the Sweden card. Glad they are getting that fight out of the way and not giving it main event status on some lowly Fight Night. Should be a stinker but i got Phil.

    Don't Get Eliminated!!

    Nov 29, 2014
    I have nothing really against Connor McGregor, he's good, I don't know if I believe his full hype, but if he gets the title shot after beating Siver, unless he does something spectacular, but if he just beats him and gets the title shot I hope he gets starched in the first by Aldo.

    It's not even McGregor, it's his stupid f--king following that piss me off. Just reading comments after articles written with his name in there it's so annoying. Ughh.

    The guy is very entertaining, I'm guessing the hype lasts until the Aldo fight, until then it's an entertaining ride.

    I still have a feeling like he might get caught by Siver. This will be the first time he doesn't get in someone's head (or at least it seems so) and Siver hits hard.

    Giving him Mendez seems terrible from the UFC's standpoint since I think he would maul him, so I guess there will be no good wrestlers fighting McGregor until the Aldo fight where they will capitalize on this very entertaining hype train.
