Dos Anjos out at 155. Nate Diaz in to fight McGregor at 170. What the hell?

Heard some of the press conference clips on radio. McGregor certainly wins the verbal battle lol.

The Diaz brothers are such punks. It's great to see McGregor waste Nate on the mic and I hope he does the same in the cage.

No, it's cool wireman. I said I hoped McGregor would do it but asking someone who fights at 145lbs to fight a bigger guy to start out with and at a weight where the bigger guy doesn't have to cut weight? Advantage Diaz. McGregor will always have that asterisk to fall back on but he didn't do that. At least not when Rogan interviewed him in the cage. I haven't seen the post fight presser.

My bubble's not burst in any way. Bottom line is Diaz beat a smaller guy, won some money but what did he actually accomplish in the grand scheme of fighting? Nothing. He'll still get his ass kicked by true 170lb fighters (see UFC 129 against Rory MacDonald) and he is too slow to be a top contender at 155lbs. He's still a punk with a bully mentality.

Meanwhile, McGregor still has his 145lb title, will fight for the 155lb title and on top of that he'll out earn Diaz by 3:1 or more. Props to Diaz for winning this fight but what did he actually win? The equivalent of schoolyard bragging rights.

McGregor is not worried about his rep. He took the fight for the cash. Fighters only have a small window to make the big bucks.

The biggest casualty of the night was Holm. She just lost a shit ton of future endorsement cash. She still would have lost to Rousey in next fight if she waited IMO though.

Turd - I have never really bought into the genius that is Turd.  I know he is well loved and considered a great poster.  His brand of humor just doesn't do it for me.

You sound like a total excuse-making McGregor-apologist bitch.  First of all, McGregor didn't "move up 2 weight classes".   He USED TO BE a 145-lb fighter, but he is now a 155-lber, and had been planning to move up for a while now, because he was too big for 145 and making the weight was getting tougher and tougher.   So he was a 155-lber now.  *From what I heard*, Diaz was asked to cut down to a catchweight of 160-lb, but he and his camp asked for 165-lb.  That's when Conor the loudmouth said "fvck it, let's make it 170 because I'm tired of hearing Nate whine."     Therefore, the fight was originally going to be a 155-lber  having to fight at 165-lb, a GRAND TOTAL of 10lbs more, not this mythical "he had to fight 2 weight classes higher" crap.

Secondly, Diaz is a punk with a bully mentality?  What's your definition of a punk?  Because Diaz is a warrior with great cardio who's tough as hell and trains his ass off.  And as far as having "a bully mentality" - it's professional fighting, you moron.

Lastly, what did Diaz accomplish with this fight?  If you even have to ask, then you wouldn't get it anyway.  This fight result is quite beneficial to Diaz's career.

fvcking nerd with your shitty inaccurate takes -you literally don't know shit about MMA.

p.s. The Great Conor looked like a total amateur on the ground, like someone who had never trained in jiu jitsu before - perhaps his movement coach should've spent a few sessions on that.  Nate must've been laughing his ass off at how easily he schooled him once it got on the ground - it was almost as bad as James Toney's fish out of water act against Couture - but surely the only reason for that was because Conor was "the smaller guy". Of course.

Miesha Tate beating Holm was considered a very possible scenario by those in the know - Tate is no joke and has been a top contender for longer than Holm.    Therefore, I don't think this was something that totally threw a wrench into Dana White's best-laid plans for Rousey and Holm - a Rousey vs Holm part 2 fight should still be as viable as ever.  My guess is they put Tate in against some top contender (maybe that Nunes chick, even though she's not all that), and then they put Holm in against Rousey again, and the winners of those fights will then face each other. They might even put those fights on in the same card.
