UFC matchmakers aren't the only ones giving Marcus Brimage a hard time. Conor McGregor fans don't like him much, either, ahead of the pair's meeting at UFC on FUEL TV 9 on Saturday in Sweden.

Brimage is such a nice guy. It was weird seeing him act the way he did at the weigh ins. He's usually full of energy and joking around. Not today. I hope he pulls it off.

I think I'd be a bit frustrated if I were him. He beat Bass and was brought in to more than likely lose to Blanco. He beat Blanco and was matched up with another hyped prospect in Hettes...he beat him. Those two wins IMO should put him a little higher up the latter and not facing a UFC newcomer and yet another "hot prospect."

Conor's pretty big on himself for someone who hasn't accomplished much and Brim is going to humble him tomorrow.... then impress us all with some crazy flips!!!

Same here. McGregor hasn't faced anybody like Brimage yet. Hopefully the Bama Beast goes Super Saiyan and ends the hype behind McGregor

Can't wait to see McGregor's reaction when he realizes Brimage's power level is over 9000. It will probably look something like this.

McGregor made his name beating guys who wouldnt have even made evaluations for tuf. Brimage has proven me wrong 3 times in a row. All he needs to do is stay away from the power shots and he'll be good. I think that the UFC wants McGregor to win so they can break into the Irish market again and have an actual face rather than an American in Marcus Davis.

Ehhh I don't see him being the face of Irish mma, I think McGregor is better suited because of his exciting style and devastating ko's.

[WAS] Thinkin Brimage will take this fight easily...BUT, watched past 4 fights of Brim & McGregor. Now, judgin by the counter-plan McGregor (or, LOT MORE LIKELY, his team) has recently put to action...along with the fact that Brimage has already been handed TWO "show-fights" in a row, tells me that McGregor will beast through this fight in seconds.
Same with Michael Johnson...NEVER could stand the guy since TUF, nothin but cocky d*ck, but no defying he's helluva fighter after Castillo fight. Would've picked him straight up too as I've seen his last 5 full fights...BUT, n past few days I've seen all the adverts hypin Madadi, as well as all the "home-town" hype...which consequently led me to watch about 8 of his past fights...Now, I'm absolutely positive that Madadi will be the single-handed beast of a human stand-out in tonight's whole event! Literally changed my $100 bet from Johnson to Madadi 5 mins before I wrote this.
LOST A LOOOOTTTTT of money on NCAA strictly bc I bet on those I 'LIKED' & was 'HUGE FANS OF'...now I'm completely changing & betting objectively from here out. THAT BEING SAID...I have MCGREGOR (rooting for Brimage tho), Madadi (rooting for Johnson)...& Mousassi (no difference! was rootin for, as well as 95% positive he would have knocked out Gustaffson anyway.)

CALL ME CRAZY....BUT....Most looking forward to Tor & Cella fight!!! (Both beasts, but not at all showcased on TUF to the level their skills warranted!!!) Troeng is contender-calibur, but just bc he's not a sh*t-talking a$$hole, he got ABSOLUTELY no coverage on show. Google Tor Troeng & watch his highlight before ya even think about disagreeing w any of my statements about him.

Stylistically, this is Brimage's worst opponent's-fans matchup he's ever had.

So? lol... I thought he was going to win... and then he didn't. How does that negate my post in this thread?

I stand by what I said. Now he can be annoyed at that solid beat-down he received.

Don't worry about it. I don't think anyone else was supposed to get it. It clearly makes no sense.

Great sig by the way.

Glad McGregor silenced the haters. Brimage knew he was in tough and desperately tried to win quickly and got absolutely schooled by a superior boxer.
