Still can't get the idea of Robbie Lawler getting knocked and being stripped off the title out wrapped around my head.

<awe>

Only just seen this topic exists !

What are everyone's predictions for 205 ? I think McGregor will beat Alvarez I wasn't confident when the fight was made but seeing Alvarez at the press conference he looked tired and very uncomfortable I feel like McGregor has got to him in the same way he got to Aldo. It'll be close though.

I think Woodley will beat Wonder Boy by decision I'm impressed with his grappling and think he can control the welterweight division. Prepared to eat my words though as wonder boy will be tough.

Joanna is controlling the women's Strawweight division and I see her winning by first round knock out. What was irritating is that the fight has barely been covered in the press conferences when it is actually a big bout!

Hoping Alvarez can beat McGregor, he took RDA apart in their fight and is probably a better fighter than Diaz.

I love Wonderboy but I agree, I think Woodley will win by decision.

Joanna will win, she's a beast.

I actually hope McGregor wins I never used to like him but the way he reacted to his loss to Diaz converted me. I think it'll be best for Conor if he loses cause Ferguson, RDA or even someone like Barboza would take him apart.

"I'd like to take his chance to apologise.. to absolutely f***ing no one."

I have close to zero knowledge about MMA but McGregor's antics will always keep me coming back.

Honestly think McGregor would beat Khabib based on last nights performances the lack of fighting Khabib has had seems to have made what was already a poor stand up game even worse. With McGregor's ever increasing take down defense as well as being great at fighting on the outside I think he could possibly do it.
Woodley v Wonder Boy was as close as I expected and was an amazing fight really impressed with it. Woodley's cardio looked a bit suspect at times and I think if there is a rematch then he'll need to improve that.

All in all a very good card was really looking forward to the Cerrone fight so it was a shame he didn't feature.

If Khabib could get McGregor to the ground it would be all over though.

I'd be interested to see Ferguson v McGregor first, I think it'd make for a more exciting fight.

See Mrs Rousey got destroyed again.

Her time of being an MMA fighter is up, as soon as she got hit the first time you knew she wasn't up for the fight.

She was great for the time she was at her best, and what she bought to women's MMA (a bit like Gina Carano) but now her times up.

I'm far from an expert but she went about that all wrong. Her defence was awful and she was never going to last punch for punch. Needed to defend better and try to get wrestling.

You would have thought that she would have learnt that from last time she was in the ring but obviously not.

Yes on prelims I think though <scratch>

Overeems KO of Hunt was brutal.

Lando hype derailed as he doesn't really know how to defend against strikes
