He toyed with Eddie!...the real challenge will be el cucuy or the Russian...they both looked fabulous on their latest outing.

Yup! I think Khabib will be the bigger challenge because he's a grappler. I'd love to see the brawl between him and El Cucuy though! I was pretty impressed with the way Tony dismantled MJ. I think we'll need a title eliminator at 155 because Khabib and Tony are both right there, although Khabib is undefeated.

I truly think that's what's gonna happen!...Conor's gonna take time out with baby on the way in may...so they should fight to figure out who's next.

I was so impressed with the performance of McGregor. I was already a big fan of his but for some reason I was still a little skeptical of him in this fight. But he put on a clinic. Like flawless victory style. I think he is starting to get that thing Like Rhonda had, that Silva had, that Liddell had, where the opponent got so psyched out about who they are facing, they are mentally beat before even getting in the octagon.

Khabib looked like an absolute destroyer.

On a side note I was very happy to see Edgar win in the prelims. I love that guy and seeing him win in MSG just seemed like a throwback to the golden era of boxing for some reason.

I want to preface this by saying GSP is my favourite fighter of all time. I've read his book, listened to his interviews, watched every fight, met him in person and he is just class all the way through.

But I do not think he should return.

Agree or disagree?

Totally agree. I almost wish this return could be a separate thing from his previous fighting history, so as not to potentially tarnish what came before. Doesn't work the way though.

If he comes back and just gives it his best as usual, I think that regardless of the outcome it could be good to watch. I can see him beating Bisping, but I don't know about other fighters like Romero or maybe even Rockhold. What I would not want is him to return and just get wiped across the floor. He's coming back at a heavier weight class which he resisted when he had the belt. I think he maybe should have had a tuneup fight at the new weight before fighting for the belt.

Depending on how he does and how Anderson does in his next fight, we may finally see the "super" fight we've been teased with all these years.
