I'd like to see Aldo get the KO here. I still see McGregor as FW champ though. He should be holding both belts still in my opinion.

Also, pulling for Vitor, Silva, and Moraes

2 entertaining fights to start the prelims. Eduardo just ate some brutal GNP.

Why should he still be FW champ when he's never defended it despite having won the title a year and a half ago and hasn't fought at Featherweight since? It's already bad enough McGregor hasn't defended the LW title and likely won't this year. The guy just creates logjams.

He does create log jams, I agree, but he earned both belts and he should be defending both. McGregor wanted it this way as well but the whole Mayweather fight is further slowing things down for his MMA career because there are huge sums of money involved with that fight.

He may have earned them but he deserved to lose it when he chose not to defend it. Is it fair for Featherweights to sit and wait while McGregor is fighting Nate Diaz for two fights and talks his way into a Lightweight Championship against Eddie Alvarez? Is it right for them to wait while he seeks a fight from Mayweather. He's an MMA champion and that's what pisses me off about fighters moving around. You're the champion, that's your number one priority. Not "Superfights", not "Boxing Fights". Defend your title or give it the hell up.

I can't believe UFC is still using "Face The Pain". They need tips from JMMA. Glad we have no Joe Rogan but Anik is dull.

Yeah, probably too many delays by McGregor in this case.

I know, that song needs to go.

That was a very impressive win. He really took it to Aldo in the third to earn the stoppage. Overall, the card was very entertaining with a lot of nice finishes.

No, but he is only doing certain events.
