Thereís a seriously hive-boner happening here with GSP. He came back at a heavier weight because he canít cut as much as he used to and he barely beat... Bisping.

Itís actually the opposite: he has a harder tome gaining weight and hosed up his B-hole. Heís already looking smaller than he ever has and could easily make 155.

Bisping vs Silva was a good performance if you ignore the 3 seconds in which he stopped fighting to have a conversation with Herb Dean.


McGregor's stopping ability seems less to be about raw power and more about accuracy and timing. Abel Trujillo, Micheal Johnson, and Edson Barboza hit100% harder than McGregor, and maybe even Ragin' Al and RDA do too, but they're actually pretty poor comparisons for Mac vs Khabib. I don't see anyone on Khabib's resume who fights like a rangy sniper.

(Anderson Silva, when he punches, is probably the best comparison to McGregor - long straight southpaw strikes which typically cause guys to whither and cover up - Silva vs Okami and Forrest e.g.)

If McGregor wins it'll probably look a lot like Henderson vs Silva - he gets battered until something gets through and turns the tide of the fight and then never lets up. If Khabib wins it'll probably look a lot like Khabib vs Johnson. I picked Khabib TKO4 in goonweight fwiw.

Time for the ghost of Fatherdog to return and whip us all back into decent posters.
