I don't think Aldo will be overly concerned..

McGregor looks like he could have been taken down by anybody that has a wrestling background. Didn't see him sprawl thought Siver might have had him twice.

His head movement is non existent. Granted nothing to worry about against someone of Siver's reach.

Defending leg kicks could be a problem for him.


I do want Conor to do well. But he is far from the finished article.

Aldo is fucked, his last 2 fights were pedestrian, he's in decline.

Aldo is perfect for wrestlers like Elgar and Mendes,
Mcgregors long left straight is becoming like crocops high kick, there is no defense.

If he was so box office why wasn't last night a sell out? Attendance was just over 13,000. Around 5,000 short of a sell out I believe.

The main event at midnight on a Sunday wouldn't have helped either.
