    Love him or hate him, McGregor has been extrelemly convincing in his last two fights. Siver is a dangerous dude and Conor made him look like he had no place in the same Octagon. Paraphrasing Conor's own words, "crushing skulls".

    I've been a huge fan of Jose Aldo for a long time, and he has proven to be one of the best pound for pound fighters ever (just behind Silva), but McGregor just may have his way with this division.

    II haven't seen Conor check a kick like Jose can throw in any fight he's been in. Conor may crush skulls, but Aldo's leg kicks are legendary.

    Default Married with jiu-jitsu

    Cool article about Ed O'Neill, jiu-jitsu, and Al Bundy's take on the UFC.

    http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2015/1/15...jitsu-training

    "It is full of grapplers who don't want to grapple; they want to box. So, you've got wrestlers who don't want to wrestle, and jiu-jitsu players who don't want to do jiu-jitsu. And with the way the rules are now, they favor the stand up fighter; if you don't take your opponent down and submit them right away, you will eventually be stood up again. It is exhausting."
    ...
    "They don't know how to take a punch; they don't know how to think; they don't know how to throw combinations; body punches; hooks; they know almost nothing. So at that point, you'd say: ‘Well, I'd rather watch professional boxing.'"
    ...
    "It is a spectacle; none of it is smart fighting. None of it."

    Big night for Jiu Jitsu.

    Tate chokes out Holm.
    Diaz chokes out McGregor.

    Holm is a dangerous striker. All boxers are. But when you hit the ground, all that fancy footwork and timed strikes goes out the window. Tate put on a grappling clinic. Manage distance, change levels, clinch/takedown, advance position, finish.

    Diaz was down to brawl with Connor, and the Notorious proves again that when he connects, he inflicts damage. But once Diaz rocked McGregor, a desperate takedown gets stuffed by the Jiu Jitsu Black Belt and Diaz finishes with the mount, ground and pound, back take, finish. Classic BJJ finish.

    Lesson of the night, protect ya neck. If you're gonna jump in the shark tank, you better know how to swim.
