    And look where McGreogr is now. Yeah it showed a hole in his game, so did the Nate fight where he actually lost. But he was able to stuff takedowns against Alvarez and Diaz. Diaz has improved his take downs over the years and Eddie has great wrestling.

    Hand picked guys? He's either fighting Fergusson or Kabib next at 155 and both guys are on big win streaks against good guys in the UFC. Dana even mentioned it might be Kabib next which could be a bad matchup for anybody....if he fights either one of those guys are you still going to say he's "ducking" people?

    Nate has average TD's at best and Eddie shot from a distance and never set up his TD's at all....I don't think Conor was tested at all by any legit TD threats outside of Mendes

    I'm not saying he's ducking anyone, but until he actually fights either Fergusson or Khabib I don't believe they'll be next, and when I say hand picked, I mean stylistically....I still believe the UFC will give him the most favorable matchup as they possibly can stylistically. I actually wouldn't be surprised to see Nathan get the next shot.................Dana can tell me to my face Khabib is getting the next shot but until I see them both inside the octagon, I won't believe a word he says

    Merc, can you start doing these again? Are these just free for the week or something? This is a great idea!

    At the moment I can't because I've got work that's been built up (Not on me, on my shitty assessors) and learning driving theory, so that's the priority for this month. Only stopped doing it after 2 because didn't seem to be enough interest. But after this month I could re-think it.

    Didn't want to start another thread, but as I'm bored and there is no football on TV today, I've stuck on UFC 66 to watch. Liddell vs Ortiz 2.

    Just watched the first fight, Bisping vs Shafer in his real UFC debut(after TUF Finale), crazy how much Bisping has improved since then, and how even then he was calling out the entire roster, "I'm coming for all you fuckers!" after the win.

    Also, I didn't remember the generic walk out music back then, brutal.

    Next up Arlovski vs Cruz

    Just thinking on the music........maybe it wasn't, could it be they just removed the music to save on paying someone?
