RDA will last a little longer though, but he'll overextend, get tagged then beaten down for a good 10 seconds before Big John comes in with the illegal knee to a downed opponent to save the day

Always wanted to ask what does heem stand for
Is it from heem sleepy or what
They keep it. Frank Mur gave each of his kids a belt
BARREL ROLLS BREH, JUST DO BARREL ROLLS YOU'LL BE FINE. TRUST ME, HAVE I EVER STEERED YOU WRONG?
If this is your first, welcome. It is a visceral experience that first time. When the veil recedes and you finally see how fragile the beauty really is. The ocean of shit, waves of bile we surf searching roses. Roses stemming deep in the viscous that is 4chan. Always temporary, as is the nature of the board, but to realize we sat plucking petals and bending stalks when we could be spreading seeds is a brutal reality check.
You've pupated anon, but it isn't your final form. You will continue to regress, hence evolve, along the path of pure lucidity to the meta-form: The Crystal Child. A state of pure autism. Embrace it. You're here forever.
>an aussie being a good lad
WAT HAPEN WIT YU STRAYA?
>________ will destroy conor.
can't wait to update this image.
Conor is a Featherweight (135-145)
RDA is a Lightweight (145-155)
Conor is moving up to fight for the Lightweight belt
If he wins, he will be the only multiple belt holder in UFC history
If he loses, nothing happens
RDA has everything to lose and nothing to gain
Conor has nothing to lose
RDA = fucked
>he doesn't appreciate argie autism
>no fun allowed
I will literally tap you in under 1 minute
how much better will Conor be without such a harsh weight cut?
GARDAI have confirmed they are investigating a photo posted by UFC champion Conor McGregor to social media.
The photo appears to show the athlete posing with what is believed to be an airsoft pellet gun.
>This level of influx of casual Conor Nuthuggers
This spic is mad as fuck, don't worry, he will not be here next week, watch.
In other news where is the rican and the kenyafag?
Were they proxies?
>asking about top quality posters is cringe
>unironically makings threats on the internet
how insecure are you?
lets just say i changed my vote to mcgregor before the aldo fight
lets see it this way, it won't be easy as aldo unless he can score a knockout and even if he will scoring a knockout aginst someone that have the same height as you is slightly harder
>asking about top quality posters is cringe
Because you unironically miss anonymous people from the internet
>unironically makings threats on the internet
>not getting the reference
Just kill yourself you fucking casual
I'm barely ever wrong on heem, we'll see on ufc 197. RDA is nothing more than a brute, he'll get flattened in the first round
im curious, are you irish or a foreigner? cuz ur acting pretty treacherous on here
To root for RDA over McGoobs on this one basically means hating the sport or being a brazilian, which is pretty much the same.
Why wouldn't you pose with guns? Are you gay or something?
>he doesn't enjoy memeing with specific flags on /heem/
>I'm barely ever wrong on heem
Heem yourself you filthy spic, all you are good for is to get pounded at literally every combat sport ever created.
Name one relevant champion Spain had at any combat sport.
top kek, you actually can't name a champion, i tought you were gonna look for one obscure boxing champion you once had, not even that.
Spaniards literally can't talk about fighting
we're not talking about fighting, we're talking about MMA
Name one relevant MMA Argentinian. You can't.
We have the living legend Abner Lloveras, you might remember him fron TUF which is farther than any italian indian from your joke country has ever gone.
>you might remember him from TUF
>He doesn't know Ponzinibbio, who literally destroyed every opponent at TUF Brazil and is now 3-2 in the UFC with two KO's
Way better than anything a spaniard ever achieved
Still better than anything Spain has to offer.
He even unironically Ko'd a black man.
This is a spic fight, don't get involved floody
>being THIS casual
How new are you though?
You don't even get the Blanco joke, god damn, you are autistic as fuck
>he thinks oblique kicks should be banned
>he thinks headbutt and knees/kicks to the head of a downed opponent should be banned
>he doesn't think there should be ufc 1, single round no time limit no eye gouging, fish hooking, and added no nut shots (except to Joe Son)
People root for people they like, what do you mean with "sway"?
Rooting for someone has little to do with opinion, you just like him or you don't.
And if you don't like him you'll root for the other guy because you wanna see guy 1 get heemed to fuck.
>liking mcgregor is not casual unless you're irish
Now that Ronda is kill he's literally the biggest draw for casuals in the entire sport m8
>I do like him, but that doesn't guarantee I'll be rooting for him
You literally just said that to root again McGregor means you hate the sport, which means you either hate the sport or are rooting for McGregor. Which is it?
That might sound crazy, but Mcgregor walks around 170ish, if someone were to give him some of that Overeem horse meat that might actually be possible.
YOU KNOW MIKE, SOMEONE'S GOING TO BE A THREE-DIVISION CHAMP EVENTUALLY, AND PERSONALLY, I THINK CONNOR MCGREGOR CAN DO IT.
>Undoubtedly, you have to root for McGoobs
Well it's certainly objectively better for the UFC if McGregor wins, but I don't really know why that forces my hand into rooting for him. McGregor's shit talk is great for the company, and he's one hell of an entertaining fighter, I just don't care for him very much as a person. Don't get me wrong though: I think the chances that McGregor ultimately wins are higher than RDA's.
Realistically though no matter who wins they're just going to get ragdolled by Khabib if his knees stop exploding
Thats basically it. You said everything that needed to be said, the only thing to add is to devalue personal feelings and boil it down to facts which you did.
And I would agree with you on Khabib vs McGoobs. I seriously doubt that Khabib and McGregor will ever fight tho.
It's like "Sea level" with Cain nowadays, it gets burned into your brain and used as part of your vocabulary when you describe them.
>I seriously doubt that Khabib and McGregor will ever fight tho.
Very true, I don't see the UFC making it very easy for Khabib to get a title shot in the near future unless Conor loses to RDA. If he loses then the UFC doesn't really have any reason to protect him at lightweight anymore and they'll go ahead and schedule RDA vs Khabib 2 (provided he wins his return fight). If Conor wins then the UFC will hold a death grip on their cash cow and try and justify giving someone less deserving the shot. I understand that the UFC is a business and money talks, but as a fan of mma I think the champions need to fight the best opponents available to really be called champs.
Well as a fight fan considering the UFC is the world's premiere MMA organization it would make sense for MMA fans to want the company to succeed
One is the interim one he won off Mendes and the other is the "real" belt he got from Jose
Just kidding, the UFC has already negotiated for RDA to take a flop when they fight so they went ahead and gave him his belt
I don't really care, all i care about it's fighting, doesn't matter if it happens in Japan or in Guatemala, i'll watch.
Even if the UFC doesn't succeeds, MMA will go on without them.
by taking a tougher fight in a higher weight class? The real question is
why is Floyd ducking Conor?
You now remember BJ Penn called GSP a quitter and then quit on his stool in between rounds when they actually fought.
194 did 1.2 - is there enough time for Conor to hype the fight? Not sure casual fans care about seeing RDA fight desu
Holly on the card is smart, but do people really want to see her fight Tate? Seemed like people like her so much because she beat Ronda
Conor himself brings 1m FOR SURE.
Where were you spic?
Cooking some paella?
>not being a true fight fan
do i have to say it, casual?
I listen to his podcast to make it bearable. Truly the peoples champ.
>pic related starts talking
>I wish they would show highlights of previous fights between rounds
Why is he the literal worst.
>mfw Tate beats Holly and Ronda then beats Tate and in the end Holly kills Ronda
fuck you bitches
Will he put a clinic on Mighty Mouse again after cucking Dilladork?
How do i achieve LHW WerDOOM mode lads?
Why did Cain put the division on hold for 3 years again?
Fuck that nigga

All of my envy.
Is it true Connor will be fighting Dos Anjos at UFC 197?
That seems like a retarded business decision to me, should have dragged it out more, let him fight some bum opponents, bring in those 500m gates, keep people questioning
Now he will probably get knocked out and lose all his star quality
I mean moving up to a new weight division and fighting the best right off the bat doesn't seem smart
How would Mc Ride hold up in the bantamweight division? potential GOAT material....
>Now he will probably get knocked out
He'd rack up a 50/50 score with some crazy af KO's but would lose a shit ton to subs because he doesn't give enough fucks to learn how to defend himself.
Decent enough gamble Tbh, if Conor loses it'll be because he'll get pressured and wrestle fucked and man handled for 5 rounds. If he can get beat down for 5 rounds and be beat up on the ground his rep will be fine because he was facing a "larger" fighter out of his "natural weight division". If he gets heem'd then his rep dips, unless it's a sub.
He did walk through Petti's head kicks and straights that wobbled Gilbert but at the same time he's got underrated defense. He never was really getting cleanly hit by Pettis. He's got a fantastic ear muff guard especially for MMA.
ufc are jews, they want the biggest numbers
i bet connor didn't have a saying in this, but im sure he will work his shittalk magic in this fight for extra advantage.
will it work? maybe
Belfort wouldn't have even been in the cage to fight had he not revitalized his career after the Silva loss with TRT. Belfort has good technique, but we would have seen him get retired years ago had it not been for TRT
Mr Maahgregor is going 0-3 in 2016 boys, the hype train is coming off the tracks.
That doesn't mean anything, it still shows Rockhold was unable to do anything against that move, whether it was Belfort doing it or the fucking Mighty Mouse, he still got rekt. If it was some ground and pound type of fight for 5 rounds then you could nullify that loss but not this.
I hespec The Conor for taking the fight. The Frankie fight was way easier on paper despite the exhausting weight cut. I'm really hyped for this card and it's also great seeing Holly fight before defending her title against Hogda.
That kick would knock him out even if it landed at 50% of its strength, it landed right to the face. It was just great technique, Rockhold got caught, stop lying to yourself Aussiebro.
You can't just look at that kick in isolation. If Vitor is weaker and slower in general, he doesn't get Rockhold going back or have Rockhold as tentative. Vitor doesn't land that kick if he's on the back foot getting pushed around. There's a lot that goes into landing that kick. That's why fighters take roids, because they make you better.
>If it was some ground and pound type of fight for 5 rounds then you could nullify that loss but not this
Why on earth would you need a reason to 'nullify' his loss? Rockhold fucking dismantled Weidman after Weidman just got done wrecking Beflort. If Belfort's technique is still so great, why wasn't he able to perform and wipe the floor with Weidman? Oh right, because he wasn't roided to the gills this time
>That kick would knock him out even if it landed at 50% of its strength
The kick TRTor landed on Rockhold didn't even knock him out though, he had to finish him off with ground strikes. Obviously therefor the same kick at 50% power wouldn't have knocked him out either you idiot
BREAKING: UFC will hold events in Zagreb, Croatia on Sunday, April 10th & Rotterdam, the Netherlands on Sunday, May 8th per a press release.
>Schaub received permission from Dana White to participate in the Metamoris 2 Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament on June 9, 2013, facing Roberto "Cyborg" Abreu in a no-gi rules match. During the match, Schaub refused to engage Abreu in his ground game, moving away from his opponent several times and earning the ire of the crowd, being heckled several times. After the 20 minutes lapsed, the judges unanimously decided the match in Abreu's favor. During the post-fight interview Brendan Schaub, confused about the crowd's reaction, claimed that viewers were uninformed: "They don't understand what they were seeing." and also previous opponents of Roberto "Cyborg" Abreu claiming that they "fell for his game, and weren't able to neutralize him".
>this piece of shit still using my Fedor pic and NOT PUTTING A FUCKING NAME ON IT
> le mazzagatti is the worst ref ever meme
Both deducting Brock a point for back of the head shots and DQing Jones for causing a fighter to be unable to continue via illegal shots were good calls.
>Nice MMA math there
It clearly shows that Belfort is a shell of his former self. Where did the killer technique you mentioned dissappear to? Do you honestly think that Belfort could beat Rockhold now?
>you dumb retard
Do smart retards exist? Can you even insult someone properly?
>And yeah I meant...
Good job backtracking and correcting yourself there m80, I don't think anyone noticed
Does the UFC unironically have the worst ring girls?
underwhelming more than anything, i think a lot of people were expecting Anderson to at least rock Diaz or knock him down a couple times. Instead we got quite a few decent exchanges but without much consequence.
>Anonymous 01/08/16(Fri)11:49:42 No.64750875▶
ahhhhh dude this is pretty much attempted murder
Yeah i don't get it
I went to ufc 195 live and they had girls 3x hotter than the ring girls just running around serving drinks to people
How is that dumb? Isn't that a smart strategy?
>yfw Conor doesn't win a single fight in 2016
Loses to RDA, Frankie and Aldo. Screencap dis yeh
>Conor heems RDA
>Nate gets a title shot
>5 rounds of stockton motherfucker outpunching the manlet
>yfw England doesn't win a single fight in London
No, but it's interesting to see you get so worked up over the use of a common expression. This would be the shittiest debate club ever, considering you've stopped responding to any point I brought up
Cmon man its 6am for me, how am I supposed to fall asleep if I'm laughing this hard?
>yfw anderson heems bisping worse than forrest
>Miesha wrestlefucks Holly
>Ronda vs. Miesha trilogy at UFC 200
>Ronda wins title again
>retires in post-fight interview and fucks off to be feminist hero and hollywood star for the rest of her life
Is Conor the most alpha fighter ever
>Beats literal 1 P4P for the title
>Immediately goes up in weight to challenge the champ who poses all kinds of problems for him
What problems would that be? Conor is for sure the better striker
it wouldnt be ducking since hes not vacating the belt you goof
>and then he defends the belt against Nate at Croke Park
Damn, this needs to happen
He more or less just had his way with him. Out struck him and dominated him grappling, and the fucker just didn't get tired. The entire time watching it I was sure that his effectiveness and pressure would start to wane in rounds 4 and 5 because he'd gas, but it just never happened. Hadn't really heard much about RDA before the fight, and of course everyone knew about Pettis, so it came as a big surprise to watch him get so utterly deconstructed
>tfw he looked like this in 2015
natty or juice?
>movie coming out about Mike Tyson's master vs Bruce Lee's master
>Hey bros, who would win in a fight Mike Tyson or Bruce Lee?
>HURRR BRUCE LEE COULD SHOOT HADOUKENS AND DO TRIPLE BACK FLIPS. NOT EVEN CLOSE HE'D KILL TYSON WITH ONE PUNCH DURRRR
Tyson had like 80 pounds on Lee and Bruce Lee learned Martial Arts a long fucking time ago when it was pretty much irrelevant and wouldn't stand a chance today. Also
>Actor vs Fighter
bruce was a glorified actor and fitness instructor, tyson was a professional world class fighter. of course tyson would win. did bruce lee ever actually win anything besides shitty show fights? and when bruce fought he only fought manlets, tyson is like twice his size.
>If Belfort's technique is still so great, why wasn't he able to perform and wipe the floor with Weidman? Oh right, because he wasn't roided to the gills this time
Styles make fights, dummy.
People outside of the "hardcore fans" don't know who Nate Diaz is either, so what's your point? In fact, people who aren't into MMA barely know who the champions are at all. The only vaguely recognized name is GSP, and even then people seem to be hazy on why exactly he's a big name or even what division he was in.
The argument that he should fight "big names" is fucking stupid, because outside of the actual fans, nobody has any clue who the eligible big names are.
