For UFC’s ‘other’ Irish fighters, spotlight is dimmer heading into UFC on FOX 14

mmajunkie.com — As Irish MMA continues to wade into unchartered territory, the rapid ascent and borderline omnipresence of Conor McGregor, has, perhaps, obscured the notable progression made by some of his compatriots, who are in action this weekend at UFC on FOX 14. McGregor's quick ascent is to be expected.

For champ Aldo, a challenger like McGregor is a gift from heaven - or possibly hell

mmajunkie.com — It's times like these you wonder how we managed for so long in this sport without a Conor McGregor. Maybe a better way of putting it is, you wonder how UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo managed without him, because something tells me that when Aldo looked up and saw the Irishman vaulting over the cage following his second-round TKO of Dennis Siver in Sunday's UFC Fight Night 59 headliner, all he saw was a big bag of money headed his way.

Twitter Mailbag: McGregor’s prediction, Siver’s predicament, Jones’ rehab, UFC uniforms

mmajunkie.com — With UFC Fight Night 59 just around the corner, this week's Twitter Mailbag is overflowing with questions about the inimitable Conor McGregor, poor, forgotten Dennis Siver, and of course, former champ Benson Henderson, who seemed to be the last to know that he was fighting Donald Cerrone again on Sunday night.

Does Koscheck's face seem extra twitchy tonight? Thought it was eye injury or jaw problem or broken nose. But I think he's just twitchy.

That's like AP Spanish. RT @jeffwagenheim Glad the Spanish they're using for this UFC 184 PPV is "100% Spanish."

Yo, Roan - you mind reffing these next few fights? You seem to be the only one worried about safety tonight.

Feb 28, 2015

@ctlacosta Big part of it. Rousey is attraction, but Kimbo news was big. Every time traffic starts to fade, big news follows. Pretty lucky

Feb 28, 2015

@ctlacosta It's been a record week. Second-best day ever yesterday - not even an event night. Likely going to be a record weekend and week.

RT @Karpel_EMG: @DannStupp Just got early word that @RomanSalazarMMA has Corneal abrasion and possible retina damage. Going to hospital @MMAjunkie

Feb 28, 2015

Seems like Kid needed to fully scoop out an eyeball before some fans would be convinced Salazar couldn't see.

Feb 28, 2015

RT @brentbrookhouse: “Can you see?” “not out of my left eye” “can you fight?” that’s…you don’t ask the second question there. Can’t see = stoppage always

Guess we'll let that cage-grab go. I doubt he even remembers grabbing it anyway.
