Well that was an anticlimax.

Anyone else watch?

I genuinely thought Aldo would put him in his place. I guess I was wrong. McGregor definitely delivered.

I would like to say there is an element of luck in these quick knock outs however, watching Dan Hardy breakdown what we can expect from both fighters it appears McGregor is quite a calculated fighter and picks his punches very well.

Its a bit of a joke sport right? How does the number 1 guy get done with 1 punch? Number 1 woman gets beat by a boxer

The thing is: Aldo really fucked up by lowering his guard while throwing that swing. You train like every day and you grow tired of being told to keep your guard up when throwing punches.

But I don't know if you guys noticed, he (Aldo) scored a hit at the same time. If his punch was a little more stronger, we could have a double KO right there. Which would be funny.

That was a precision punch right there. It wasn't even a hard punch, it just connected in the right place.

The fight was lost in the very first press conference they had together. Aldo didn't know how to handle McGregor's mind games. He was psyched out completely.

Weidman vs Rockhold was a monster fight. Rockhold absolutely ruined Weidman's face in the last 30 seconds of Round 3.
