Conor just derailed his chance at the 155 belt, He needs to defend his title against Frankie and then move to lightweight permanently.

I'm sure he'll fight a couple a fights at Featherweight before moving up. Still can't believe he tapped out from a choke. Just let it ride. Even Holly went out like a warrior. 

Edit: I like how the votes for Nate when 6 to 9 after the fight is already over lol. 

He rematches Aldo and possibly fights Frankie if he wins after that he moves up to 155 but who knows what happens.

Very entertaining fight. I didn't really care who won. I'm just glad the fight was as amazing as it was.

Nah, I don't think that 155 lb title shot is affected. Dos Anjos has already dominated that weight division so McGregor is still one of the most interesting opponents he can have.

Even if Conor loses his belt in his next title fight, he's still an interesting opponent for Dos Anjos.

Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov is next and winner is supposed to get the title shot. I think Conor will fight Frankie Edgar next, then after that who knows. 

Champ vs champ is the bigger draw. Ferguson or Khabib may just have to wait a bit.

But we'll see, McGregor is gonna need to fight with increased frequency to hold two titles at the same time.

I said derailed because there is no way that Dana White let's Conor Fight RDA after Diaz beat him tonight Diaz fights at 155 and RDA destroyed him, Aldo just called out Mac on twitter and wants the rematch at UFC 200 and that is most likely his next fight.

Tonight's loss showed McGregor should stay out of 170 lbs and stop being so cocky. Again, had he not been so cocky he have probably finished Diaz.

Again, champ vs champ might be a deciding factor.

I mean I agree Conor was winning the fight before he got rocked but he was fighting stupid Keeping his hands down agaisnt a guy who has longer reach and abandoning his strategy of leg kicks in the second round and trading blows he even seemed gassed in the second.

The problem is that Diaz now has a right to challenge RDA because he just beat the #1 contender and now Aldo want's his rematch that he deserves as well, UFC 200 needs more than one title fight if they plan to sell out 100k having Mcgregor vs Aldo rematch and then Diaz vs RDA is the right way to go there are no other Champions that could be available for that card now, there is no need to hold up the 145 division when you have two challengers waiting with Aldo and Frankie who both deserve shots.

Conor wasn't just winning, he was dominating. It got to the point he was actually letting Diaz hit him so he could pretend they don't hurt. Once that started happening, it completely changed the pace of the fight. Its the dumbest things since... Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman. McGregor following with a take down was also stupid given Diaz's ground game.

We'll see what happens. I think Dana still wants a champ vs champ superfight. We haven't had one of those in a long time. But McGregor also needs to defend his belt.

He did that because his legs were gone and he knew he was going to get Knocked Out Diaz was putting pressure and he couldn't recover, IMO that was all he could do there was like 1min plus left in the round and he hoped that if he could take it to the ground then he could grind it out until the round was over.

Funny thing about that his he was just talking about he turns guys into panic wrestlers at the pre-fight press conference, and that's exactly what he did when Diaz rocked him. Turned into a panic wrestler. Give props though he admitted he panicked. 

Also Conor just said his next fight will be defending the belt. 



Go DIAZ!!!!!



Yeah he just said he will defend his featherweight belt. He said whoever tye fans want to see. So that means edgar or aldo will be bitching over who deserves it more.

Diaz against RDS makes the most sense.

On the fight itself, Puggsly has it spot on. Mcgregor was about to win the second round after a dominant first and he messed up. At the higher weight against a heavier guy he was pretty gassed. Diaz was tired too but once mcgregor dropped the hands and tried doing an Anderson silva there was only 1 winner.

The biggest loser in all of this is aldo. He said after he lost that he would fight conor place, anytime, anywhere. But when RDS pulled out he said no and no he's just after calling out mcgregor calling him a pussy.
