    Mental how you can generate that much power on your back half knocking a * out before getting up and finishing him :56:

    Ridonculous..

    Cerrone with another top performance, he's someone I can never get a good read on, he looked finished at one point in his career now he looks fantastic again. I don't know who I'd favour now if he fought Conor.

    Almost impossible to predict because of Cowboy.

    His performances are erratic, it depends solely on which Cowboy turns up. And I’m not so sure becoming a Dad has changed that at all because he’s had spurts like this before and then will turn up half arsed and get murked.

    Think McGregor would knock Cerrone out regardless of which Cowboy shows up.

    Genuinely don’t think it’s as simple as that. Cerrone would tower over McGregor and we seen against Diaz at 170 how quickly he gasses when his zinger lefts don’t wipe folk out in the first round.

    Also, if they clinch or it ends up on the floor there’s only 1 winner...

    Diaz has a better chin than Cerrone though.

    Cerrone should take it to the ground if they ever fight but I think he’ll try to go toe to toe and have an all out war. If that’s the case then I can see McGregor rocking him and finishing him within the first couple of rounds.

    Aye 8th June. Wonder who McGregor will get now or if he’s even interested anymore.

    Think Aldo will do the business tonight.

    Hoping for a Thug Rose win as well.

    Some interesting fights tonight. Main event and Aldo v Volkanovski I'm especially looking forward to. Can't really call either fight although I've stuck a fiver on the skybet 20/1 KO double for the Brazilians, unlikely but worth a shot.

    Hopefully BJ finally packs it in for good after tonight. Obviously a legend but he's not won a fight since 2010 and is just taking unnecessary damage these days.

    Wee Rose is lucky she never ended up with a broken neck. First round she looked great too.
