    Yeah it wouldnt surprise me if it's Woodley next. I'd say that would be an interesting matchup but Woodleys past couple of fights have been anything but that.

    I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt to be honest. Not denying his past two fights have been snoozefests but the two prior were anything but. Maybe he was right to be cautious in the second Wonderboy fight after the first one. And if he'd got reckless against Maia he'd have been on the mat and subbed in no time. As it was he made him look like an amateur (as did Silva back in the day, which is quite a shame for Maia) despite offering little offense. Let's see what happens with the next fight.

    Plus I remember him saying something along the lines of 'I'm not going to give you my title, you've got to come and take it' after the Maia fight, which I kind of respect.

    I read a statistic recently that Ngannou started training MMA 17 months before CM Punk. Where's your excuse Punk? Should be fighting for a title now bitch.

    Hilarious story about a guy who streamed the UFC event on twitch pretending to be playing the game. Even had a controller in his hand the whole time. 😂

    Punk's lulling us into a false sense of security by pretending to have no stand up, no grappling game, and no fight IQ. We're all getting punked -- CM will be GOAT by end of 2018.

    Punk will fight Lesnar in no weight restriction ladder match in the octagon.

    Fair play to him coming back after getting the shit kicked out of him like that.

    Former WWE wrestler Jack Swagger is going into mma and joined Bellator as a heavyweight.

    He beat Cain in college.

    Gsp has vacated the middleweight belt. Hmm.

    It's the right thing to do if it's not what he wants. Take note, McGregor.

    Sensible thing to do imo. He was carrying far too much muscle and was gassing badly against Bisping.

    It paves the way for Conor to move up again and fight him at Welter. I think that's always been the plan.

    Yeah it's got to happen. Biggest fight of all time if it does. GSP all day for me.

    GSP will have his way with Conor at welter. Conor looked absolutely awful at that weight.

    For someone who's proved themselves not to be doubted, yep, doubt McGregor could win. GSP would just be way too much for him.

    It'd be an odd run up. This:

    Apparently McGregor is in talks to box Pacman in April. Ugh.

    GSP has colitis, he may never fight again. It wrecked Darren Fletchers football career for years and could do the same for him.

    He might recover faster but there are no guarantees.

    Didn’t know that, but read he thinks it’s a byproduct of the diet used to bulk up- perhaps resuming normal service fixes things a bit easier then.

    Some people can recover from it quickly as far as I understand, however with other people it can last ages. At his age and stage of his career though if it drags on he might just stay retired.

    I had Ulcerative Colitis until about 15 years ago when I underwent some pretty drastic surgery. Unless the way they treat it has drastically changed since then, it's not something that's very easily controllable with diet or medication if it's in anyway severe.

    And even when it's under control, the vast amounts of drugs your body has to deal with is really not conducive to good health or pique fitness as required by athletes.

    The fact however that he's won a UFC belt with Colitis makes me think his is probably pretty moderate.

    Seems unlikely. Surely there's no public appetite to watch him box again? I'm calling click bait.

    Conor will keep on fighting past their best boxers until he wins one and can declare himself the best ever.

    Then it's about as likely as him fighting Malignaggi or Oscar I'd say. They've all tried to initiate something but I can't see it happening again.

    Theres a good chance he'll actually die if he fights Pacquiao.
