Connor is a dream champion for the UFC. Hopefully that Aldo fight happens sooner than later.
Conor mentioned after the fight there were worse things wrong with him than a bruised rib, and he still showed up. Wouldn't say what it was because he didn't see the point in bringing it up now, but the rumor is he has a torn MCL in his knee that will require surgery at some point soon. If true, makes Aldo looks absolutely terrible.
The live music was well executed, too. In the post-fight press conference, Dana said he can see why in boxing that they just hand the singer a mic and have them walk out with the fighter, because it's so much cheaper and easier, but they wanted to do it right and got the two lifts they use for the Grammys. No disrespect to whatever country singer sang Chad out, but Sinead doing Foggy Dew for Conor was something else.
