We need some insight on the Aldo vs. McGregor fight this weekend. It seems the Irish fans are disrupting airline flights, drunk already. I guess Irish and "drunk" is sort of the same word, but a flight from New York was turned back last night due to brawls onboard. Drunken Irish, this is why I'd like to see Aldo win, but Colin is also good.

Latest odds I saw were MCgregor - 135, Aldo even money. Once again, UFC has unfair 30(35?) cent lines. You have to be sure to wager on it.

Looks like there won't be a rematch, I heard she is probably retiring. If we go by RR's match last night you probably would have won. I kind of think Holmes would have been the favorite to win.

FYI, if anyone goes back and reads this or other threads, I think I gave Pinit2win it a snarky time regarding his gambling theories or whatever.

I would like to say I have meet and done stuff with him many times since and currently. IMO he is a really cool, solid, hard working family guy.
His time is limited (dam wife, work and rug-rats) but I look forward to getting to know him better and doing more stuff with him.

Rousey got beaten badly again. Her arrogance and overconfident mannerism in the past when she easily dominated her opponents, mainly by grappling, while never experiencing the bitter disappointment of losing, has now turned into more humble, even intimidated behavior. She seems to lack mental toughness, but has abundance of narcissism. Having fall pray for good strikers twice in a row now, she just might not be the greatest women's champion she proclaimed herself an year or so ago.

Connor McGregor refused to do press interviews and Dana White took him off the UFC 200 card. Roussey hasn't done them and White bends over backwards making excuses for her. She suffered two horrible losses. Time to wake up and recognise her for the one dimensional fighter she is. She had eighteen months to work on her striking and learn to counter punch and did shit.
Time to either retire or get a new coach.

I really dont think she wanted to fight. She did manage to earn $3 million for 60 seconds and realized this would be her last big payday.

I'd say she really wanted to fight and win but she was trained by an idiot. Even her mother knew this guy was a loser and that's why she spoke out about it before she lost to Holm - she had a horrible game plan which consisted of trying to walk through punches and get the clinch.

She has no ability to handle losing, that's why she didn't return to the Olympics after she got the bronze. I wish Ronda would go to a real training camp and devote herself to the sport but that doesn't seem to be in the cards. She could still be great for the sport
