So... Woodley v Wonder boy.. call that one.

I'm thinking Woodley, but it should be a cracker.
Am i right in thinking this is Wonderboys first time on a PPV card?

He was saying Conor better apologise for what he said about my wife or something.

Minutes later he says to the press...his girlfriend's pregnant with twins and conor's not the father of either!
I'm full well sure he wouldn't have said that if Conor apologised. But Conor was never gonna apologise

And he said Conor's having two kids and his missus Isn't having twins. As in Conor was doing the dirt
Ha OK that makes more sense alright :D

Had to have a look at his Wiki page. He's only ever once been on a PPV maincard, UFC 170 as the opening fight.
Been on the prelims of others.

His last two fights have headlined Fight Night cards.

I fancy Thompson on that one. Not confident to put money on it though.
I reckon he'll be savvy and quick enough to keep distance for a couple of rounds then start picking him apart ala Hendricks

LADS, just googled it there and it seems the time difference will still be a bitch despite the east coast. 5.30am-ish according to the Telegraph and Balls.ie.

Beans, I thought it would be like 2 or 3.

God dammit. There was us thinking it was going to be on in loads of late bars.

(Doubt I would have gone out to watch it even if it was, but still)

That is a real bitch actually. If it were any other undercard, i'd just hit the hay and set an alarm for 5 or 6.

Just texted my mate about the time difference, he replied:

"You can take the UFC out of Vegas..."

Doubly sad, especially because McGregor didn't react the tiniest bit, and the journalist just left him hanging.

...............SO CONOR YOU'RE HERE IN NEW YORK.....
Just watched this now. Mcgregors reaction nearly looked like there was something in it. When has he ever let anyone have the last word? He looked stunned/caught for words.

Here lads are there usually torrents that you can download the next day without being hit with spoilers?

I don't think I'll make it tonight unless I have a little bit of help, which I'm not really arsed with these days.

But if you see me on here at 7 posting long winded anecdotes about how great I am then you know what happened.

Yeah my brother was going to have people over but when we discovered the time difference was still a thing he wasn't so keen.

Another one of the lads is having people over but it's all the way out in greystones and there'll be lots of assistance there, as snips puts it. Not arsed for two reasons there.

So going to sleep a few hours then get up. Just subbed to BT Sports.

Yeah my choices are pretty much watch it at one of the lads where the temptation will be too great after a few beers or just stick in home and see if I can manage to stay up.

Watching it in the living room later. I'd say the queue for the jacks will be out the door with the amount of assistance going on

That place always looks rough as fuck when I go by. I guess it depends on what's on though doesn't it.
