Here’s an uncomfortable thought: Imagine if Dennis Siver wins…
Back at UFC 157, Liz Carmouche had one hell of a dilemma. She was going up against the Creator of Women’s MMA in the UFC, Ronda Rousey. Carmouche was fighting for the inaugural women’s bantamweight belt because Rousey existed. Should she defeat Rousey, Carmouche would effectively tear down the very eco system that sustained her and everyone else in her category. In other words, if Carmouche was successful that night in early 2013, she would ruin everything. That’s a lot to block out as you prepare for a fight. And that’s sort of what Dennis Siver is going through as he gets set to face Conor McGregor at UFC Fight Night 59 Sunday in Boston. McGregor is not only the Gateway to Ireland, but the very fire and vitality of the featherweight division. As he said during a spot on SportsCenter this week, he’s not the Next Big Thing, he is the Big Thing. Siver is a one-man Washington Generals, a warm body to perpetuate the myth of Conor McGregor as McGregor rolls headlong towards a title shot against Jose Aldo.
