Per UFC Tonight

McGregor's knee issue was a minor LCL sprain, and Brandao did not break his hand as was thought after his fight with Pineda.

This fight would be awesome, great fight for both guys.

Conor says he doesn't care who his opponent is, but his camp wants Brandao.

After this fight, winner should get a top 10 opponent.

Ithink depending how he looks vs Brandao (who is a VERY good striker) will determine what then. If he wins convincingly, they need to give him a wrestler like Lentz or Guida, OR someone like Dustin Poirier or Erik Koch.

He needs to fight someone like Nik Lentz or Clay Guida eventually though, because he's not gonna beat someone like Chad Mendes or Ricardo Lamas if he can't beat Lentz or Guida.

epwar, it says right in the op which contained 5 short sentences: "Conor says he doesn't care who his opponent is, but his camp wants Brandao." You're slipping bro. Anyhow, would love to see Brandao get pounded on and sent packing. Hope this fight happens.

Diego gasses after 1 and gets smacked around to a KO. I can see why his camp wants that fight.

Brandao is legit, in the first round. Afterwards the dude just gasses time after time. Now i do not really care if you put it down to his conditioning, his agressive all out style or a combination of both but he is just not the se fighter after the first.

He actually might need to move up a division ( even though he is kind of small for the division) because i am not sure the will really be able make the changes needed to stop the antropy after the first.

He is talented for sure. But logically you would have to give the advantage to Connor here.

And let the bring this kid along slowly. He has potential but isn't there yet at the moment. Why would you ruin thing by lettin him get blanketed by the the likes of Guida. Does nobody any good least of all us fight fans. Phone Post 3.0

Brandao is perfect Conor fodder. He's kind of a name, he'll bang and we wilts. Perfect opponent at this stage.

Lentz could be a worst case scenerio. I could see the UFC giving Conor the Florian treatment, where he only has to fight a wrestler for a #1 contender or title shot.

Porier and Koch play right into his style. He'd counter the fuck out of them in exciting, but McGregor dominated fights.

Siver would be fun too.

Conor will be on the Manchester card in October.

Put McGregor in there with Darren Elkins or Nick Lentz, even Dennis Bermudez (FOTN there). Need to see how McGregor can handle higher level grapplers.

if Nick Lentz is too much of a risk, Then Conor needs to fight Dennis Bermudez.   We need to see how Conor will do against wrestlers.

He's had 2 UFC fights, even if he called them out do you think he gets them?  zombie gonna be out for a while and Aldo is the champ.

 

Brandao is a decent opponent for him, that would be a fun fight.

Yeah, he had his camp do it so he wouldn't look so bad.  Calling out a guy who is good for one round?  Brave man, McGregor.

I dont think they need to rush that yet, after another fight or two then he will have to fight a decent wrestler.

Honestly I think they would like to get that event in Ireland done with Connor on a winning streak in the UFC so he could be a big attraction for them there. 

I wouldnt be shocked if they went back to giving him the Ogle fight just to build him up and keep the hype rolling for a while.
