Top featherweight prospect Conor McGregor done messed up his knee in the second round of his UFC Fight Night 26 battle against Max Holloway, which took place just last weekend (Aug. 17, 2013) as part of the "Shogun vs. Sonnen" event at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.Turns out it isn't serious.

Sounds like a solid fight.

I expect Brandao to gas out after the first round and possibly get KO'ed in the second or third.

That would make a great fight and seems like a good step up for him.

Weak call out, maybe before Saturday that fight would make a little more sense, but after, no way. Brandao would gas early and be picked apart easy.

Bubbs is picking Brandao? He must be kidding

Brandao will be easy pickings for McGregor in the second and third rounds.

I think the fight makes a lot of sense since the UFC has made it clear they're not going to feed Conor to the wolves. Diego also issued a statement that he would be thrilled to fight Conor and would accept it should it be offered, I read on MMAFighting.com

Brandao is dangerous and his aggressive style will make for a fun fight but he will probably gas out if he isn't able to finish McGregor. It'll be interesting to see if Diego shoots on him and what he can do from there, since he does have a dangerous submission game.

the fight probably won't even last that long. McGregor will have to respect Brandao's power or he will get KTFO and if the fight hits the ground it'll be a quick sub.

I hope it doesn't make it that far, but if it doesn't go to decision I think it'll be because McGregor KO/TKOs Brandao. I can't honestly see Brandao giving McGregor much trouble after the first round, nor do I see him KOing or submitting McGregor in the first. Obviously I could be wrong, but that's just how I see it.

I don't have anything against Brandao, but he has obvious cardio issues. We'll see if McGregor can stay off his back.
