    It's going to be a hell of a night of fights. I'm really looking forward to Nelson v Maia and I think Gunni will upset the odds and stake his claim as a serious contender. Rockholt could well upset Weidman in the co-main event too, I think he has the power and the control to really hurt Weidman and get the finish. I've been a bit on the fence about McGregor but the closer it comes to fight night the more convinced I am he's going to get the job done, he seems incredibly relaxed, looks in much better physical shape that the Mendes fight and Aldo looks very tense and wound up.

    My best mystic Mac prediction is about 2 mins into round one McGregor checks an Aldo inside leg kick and counters with his left hook, stagger Aldo, follows up with a right and another left, sends Aldo to the canvas and rains down ground and pound until big John McCarthy waves it off at 2 mins 49 seconds of round 1!

    In the more boring alternative it's a very cagey fight that goes the distance and Aldo takes a narrow points decision as McGregor slows in the championship rounds and he repeatedly gets take to the ground.

    I think pretty much everything McGregor has done is to mess with Aldo's head. Aldo came to the press conference in his full suit (allegedly wearing inserts in his shoes to boost his height) fully expecting McGregor in flash, big mouth, confrontation mode, only to find a chilled out McGregor in casual gear with no interest in aggressive confrontation whatsoever. I never really believed McGregor had got to Aldo mentally but watching the embedded and seeing Aldo's camp persistently describe McGregor as a madman, and Aldo looking so stiff and uncomfortable I really think his head might be gone.

    Devils advocate: Do you really think the press conferences aren't completely scripted by Dana?

    You can love him or hate him. But we have to be real. He is Mike Tyson, at his weight class. Mike Tyson.

    That is the most horrific tattoo in the world btw. But, who cares? At this point he is Oscar and Tyson rolled into one.

    I wasn't too far wrong! Incredible to beat a legend like Aldo in that manner, freakish timing and power in that left hand.

    I watched the first undercard...blinked...and it was 7am. Ffs.

    I was also really drunk though so I don't actually remember the fight I saw. Nor do I remember asking for a decent stream. My plan backfired spectacularly.

    Supreme athlete. Born winner. Pure charisma. An Irish rarity not seen since Sonia O'Sullivan.

    Anyone watching Duffy v Poirer tonight? This better be worth staying up for. I'm not even a UFC fan but find myself watching it just because Duffy is from Donegal.
