But will his "dream" turn into a nightmare in front of a hometown crowd?

I wanna see Conor do well, that said he needs a humbling. My problem is that I don't like Miller that much....

I'll be pulling for CM though

I think this is a great fight...Miller is a solid gatekeeper and Connor has a ton of hype! Plus all the trash talk has helped build it up a bit. Let's see if Connor is the real deal!

McGregor will shut Miller up with ease.

Miller isn't terrible, but this feels like a padder fight to book stylistically. I think the Ufc is looking at this with the expectation Connor will win more so then he will be tested.

Conor says he's the best fighter but even a win against Miller in impressive fashion will only make him a top fifteen featherweight. I'll buy into the hype when he beats a Dustin Poirier or Jeremy Stephens.

Cool fight, definitely a step up and winnable match up for McGregor

Plus I'd love to see him get cracked by Stephens while he is in his hands down low stance. That would make the next several weeks for me. I liked McGregor up until fairly recently when I got into a heated debate with one of my buddies who buys in to the hype so much that he was telling me Jose Aldo wouldn't last 2 minutes in the cage with McGregor, which I VERY strongly disagree with. I'm ready for him to get a reality check so this hype train slows down a bit, kinda like the Rory Mac hype train seems to have slowed down post Robbie Lawler.

The classic striker vs. grappler match. UFC's favourite.

Cole is real tall for a FW, is very experienced and his BJJ is a serious threat. It presents a couple of challenges for Conor to overcome. Cole is a bigger test than Brimage or Holloway were IMO.

But I think mostly they just know Cole brings it win or lose. It'll be an entertaining fight that Conor should win, which will make Dana and the hometown crowd happy.

The year-long layoff probably influenced UFC's decision to not give him a top ranked FW also.

Should be a good fight.

even with a win over Cole, there's still alot of fighters in the FW that would give Conor a run for his mouth..so let me run down my list of guys..Bermudez, Edgar, Do Bronx, Pineda, Lil' Heathen, Siver, Poirier, Hioki..guys that would bring the fight to Conor..
