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.

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4

    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
