Well what are peoples thoughts?

Over all i enjoyed the card. I thought there was a couple of questionable calls.

Start off Larkin looked like a beast that night against Howard. McGregor looked good against Siver( but i think most thought that would be the case.) Hall I really think Hall's over protective attitude is pretty much gone now and we now have a more mentally charged Hall. If that same Hall came in to fight Howard when they met, Howard would have been nothing more than a blood stain. The way he called out Costa after the fight just shows me this guy is done being Mr. nice guy. Looking very forward to who he fights next. Even though he lost and i knew he would Parke handled himself very well against an ape like built Tibau. Parkes striking has been looking much better too recently.

Sean Spencer got screwed in his fight. Plain and simple and how in the hell could one judge give Pendred the 2nd round where he pretty much played Spencers punching bag for 5 mins. Is there a new point system for absorption of hits? cause if there is then i could see how Pendred could have won that round and the fight. I was actually pulling for pendred in this fight as well.

Finally Cerrone vs Henderson. I was so pulling for Cerrone in this fight and i will admit it was a close fight i really felt Henderson did more and should have gotten the win. I even think Cowboy was a bit surprised he got the nod in the fight. But at least this fight was close and could be debated unlike the Spencer/Pendred fight.

Pretty good card overall.
That cut that Hall laid on Stallings was freaking ugly as hell! Half his eyebrow was literally hanging off his face!
I too think Henderson got robbed, but he's been on the winning end of a lot of these types of fights, so what's fair is fair, IMO.
I know it was a little over the top, but McGregor vaulting the cage and charging Aldo was freakin awesome!! lol! Everything about it was great, from Connor screaming in his face to Aldo looking legitimately amused and smiling back at him.

larkin looked awesome. kind of like an aids patient but he looked prepared and ready to go to war.

spencer- robbed

hall- when he puts combos together and is motivated he is a vicious dude. would love to see him fight winner of brunson/herman or winner of munoz/carnerio fight

cerrone fight wasnt what i expected. it was a decent fight and im glad he got the w. it was a little questionable due to the amount of leg kicks henderson landed

mcgregor- fighting a guy who was clearly overmatched. however while watching that fight i did see what everyone else sees in him. he moves like water, stays calm, patient, smart, focused, and aggressive. it was like watching a budding mma champion perform. dont know what flipped the switch but i am now sitting down on the hypetrain bus. im pretty excited for the aldo fight.

I agree too trigg about Connor vaulting over the cage. maybe i am a bit of hypocrite. cause if i saw almost any other fighter do it i would have said some thing alone the lines of "what a douche or the UFC doesn't need jack asses like that" but when Connor did i got excited and even found myself going "oh hell yeah Connor!!!!! Show him who the man is"

Now that i re-read my statement i have no doubt now......I am a hypocrite.... lol!

Win or lose, I don't know how you can't like a guy like McGregor.
Constantly the aggressor and not satisfied just "controlling" a guy on the ground or earning points with non-damaging takedowns or soft jabs.

Maybe a little over the top borderline low brow. But fuck it, he's Irish and was probably drunk.

Yeah McGregor looked masterful in there at keeping his distance, putting together good combos, and had great timing throughout the fight. I know Siver wasn't a top-quality opponent, but he's no chump, either. I think McGregor is improving by leaps and bounds every fight, and it's probably a good thing for Aldo that he's fighting Connor next and not 3 or 4 fights from now.

I absolutely loved the McGregor fence jump as well. I really dont know what to say to anyone who didn't, because I haven't heard a crowd explode like that since Randy decked Sylvia. Great for the sport.

I thought McGregor looked incredible. He is smooth and calm as hell as well as accurate. The only concern I have is that he didnt check a single leg kick and his stance does seem a bit susceptible to them which could mean death against Aldo.

And according to Rogan, the fight would've continued if it was in Nevada.
I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt and just assume he was way higher than usual when he said that.
