I think he's doing a good job at it to be honest, he had Poirier rattled off his game heading into their fight. That looked to have made a difference as Poirier came out head first with steam coming out of his ears, the fight was over in the first round. McGregor talks the talk and so far has walked the walk, long may it continue.
Who's upset about it.

Beautifully scripted stuff. Some of the performances from these guys are very credible. I'd say McGregor could easily make the transition to Hollywood like The Rock did.

Not necessarily people on here, I've heard it plenty of people moaning about how much McGregor talks. Theres also a few here who it seems to have got to.


Are you suggesting just the fixtures and build up are scripted or the fights aswell?

Wouldn't last two minutes in a Royal Rumble. Hacksaw Jim Duggan would have spat him out for breakfast.

How long would McGregor last fighting The Great Khali from the WWE who stands at over 7 feet tall and 350 pounds



or the Big Show who is 7 foot tall and weighs 425 pounds

Hopefully he'll make the step up to face The Beast Incarnate...

very close fight last night, I think it will be difficult for McGregor to beat either Aldo or Mendes

Both the winner and loser talked about Conor in post fight interview.
The Notorious one has them well rattled.

Could be a croker sell out next summer, 80,000 Irish mma fans cheering on Conor vs Aldo
