I read the play by play online, then would check the highlights on youtube before they were taken down. Sounds like it was one of the best cards they've ever put together. Lawler is a beast! Was hoping Mendes would expose McGregor, but oh well.

I just read that Conor McGregor and Urijah Faber are going to be opposing coaches on the next season of TUF. However, they are not going to fight each other after the season, which is typically the case for opposing coaches.

The UFC wouldn't waste the time on that match with McGregor's star on the rise.  He's one of the biggest draws of the company right now outside of Rousey and will only be fighting for titles until he gets beat a time or two.  

I'd love to see a championship fight held in Dublin against Aldo but it's sounding like it'll be in Vegas again. 

UFC 189 was the first one I've ever purchased and it was all that it was hyped up to be.  Top to bottom every fight on the card was fantastic. The reviews by the insiders almost all rate this card as one if the best ever, with the Lawler fight being one of the best fights ever.   Aside from the first round where there was little to no action,  it was unbelievable.

UFC is planning a fight card in Dublin in October, but it's scheduled to be on fight pass. McGregor was pretty blunt about the need to fight on that card, but it's not looking good.

Yep, but they are having issues getting a larger venue for a main fight.  Permitting problems of some sort.

The dude can back up his talk cant wait to see him and Aldo fight

Gotta love McGregor shutting up the haters!!!

Now we know why that C-S Aldo went running the last time.  13 sec?  Pfffft.  Go back to Brazil, fraud.  There is a new king in town.

I would hardly call Aldo a fraud, considering he was undefeated for over 10 years, and beat just about all the other featherweights in the division...majority of which was in dominating fashion. I'm not so much surprised that McGregor won, but definitely shocked in the manner in which he won. I hated McGregor until I watched him on TUF. Him and Faber going back and fourth with each other was classic! I actually like him now. I think he'll fight at least 1 more fight at 145, despite all signs pointing to him moving up. I'll be cheering for Donald Cerrone this weekend, as I believe a McGregor/Cerrone fight would be very exciting, as well as the build up to it.

Aldo ran from fights his entire career because of alleged injuries. He had a nice 10 year run but never had the pressure on him like he did when McGregor came steamrolling up the ranks. Aldo folded like a cheap lawn chair before he even stepped into the ring.

I'll agree, I think he was mentally defeated months ago. I was fooled a bit at the weigh in though. I don't think Dana White wants McGregor to fight Frankie Edgar. I believe once CM goes to the ground he's dead meat, and that's exactly where Edgar would plan on putting him. So, unfortunately I don't think that fight ever happens.

Maybe.  I don't think it's been decided that he'll move up but all signs seem to point that way.

    • Ketchup and mayo...  Burger Kings special sauce. 🤩
    • I snuck out after work and  heard 5 flushes. Heard but still too many leaves to see anything to shoot at. But I agree that if this any indication, we’re in for a better bird season than last year
    • I agree.  Mustered is the only way to go on a burger!  😋
    • Here's how most of my Hunting and Fishing goes! 🤪  😆      
    • Good to see your report Dusty. I'll be headed up that way in a couple of weeks.
    • @Abndoc I hope your conversation with the Landowner goes well.   In my experience, the 85 year old landowner truly DOES believe there’s enough land for the two hunters and couldn’t possibly think of a reason why it wouldn’t be.  A 50 year old will always be a kid in her eyes but she may not have even met him personally.  He could be a friend’s or even a friend of a friend’s “kid”.  This is a remnant if the good old days of getting private land access.   Modern deer hunting teaches us to have as much control over as much ground as we can to be more successful, so some people really forget their place as a guest of the true landowner ( I know you’ve been around long enough to know this).    I’ve  personally seen these situations go both ways:  The landowner finds out there’s a conflict and either kicks the 50 year old out for being a Dick or kicks the 2nd hunter out, feeling bad that they [PoorWordUsage]ed off the first hunter.  It’s crazy!   I think you’re handling it pretty well since the season has started.  Let her know and let her decision be the final word, without pressure from you.  BUT encourage your boy to be the FIRST person to knock on her door before next season starts!  Then he can tell the 51 year old to [PoorWordUsage] off! 😁
    • Could you summarize for those us with a non video learning style?  Or you just looking for clix?
    • Hey what's wrong with katchup on a burger???🤕
    • I've caught a lot of big bass on spinnerbaits over the years and I wanted to share one simple tip that is often overlooked when fishing spinnerbaits or really any bait in general when targeting big bass.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-PDaV8byhw
