    That ref for the Paul Craig fight... Apparently his elbow was dislocated, so not as bad as it could have been.

    Moreno victory was stunning. Figueredo looked way off it.

    Vittori almost had a rear-naked choke, but offered very little.

    And why the * didn't Nate go for it after that 1-2? He had him!

    Jojo won her fight, the first was hers but close and she clearly won the third. Second she was dominated on the ground fair enough but not remotely close to a 10-8.

    I don’t need to see the fight. I know Rory isn’t getting beaten off Gleison * Tibau.

    Interim Heavyweight title fight.

    Embarrassing from the UFC.

    Giving him a can so they can get a highlight finish from him on the McGregor card and try sell him.

    That Dana White-privilege there.

    Fairly simple formula for Craig in that fight, get him on the deck - even if it means pulling guard. If he can’t, he will get * up badly.

    Huge step up.

    Gus will be a massive favourite. All depends on where the fight takes place, we’ve seen Gus have issues on the ground. Normally against bigger men tbf.

    What we thinking for the weekend? Can see Poirier winning again. Lot of people saying they reckon if McGregor loses this his next fight will be Diaz 3. I'd be happy with that.

    This would’ve had me buzzing 5 year ago.

    Watching some of the McGregor interviews from today. Can't believe that American boy Stephen A Smith is still doing stuff for the UFC. He doesn't know his * from his elbow.

    I think Poirier stops him again. Later this time I'll say round 4.

    Regardless of the this result I hope this is the end of this pairing. Would love to see Mcgregor against Nate again or Masvidal.
