Lol Geathje is a savage.

Porier handled him, and was just vanquished by Khabib. Khabib is just so much better than everyone else. Conor shouldn't get a rematch, he is living off past accomplishments.

dude is the younger, Irish version of BJ. They're both out swinging on people in bars

I just hope he retires before he has a losing streak like BJs

Conor needs to go back and wreck 1-2 people before I will want to see him in any large fight.

And I don't think I'll ever want to see him fight Khabib again. I don't ever see him winning that one.

Also, Dillon is a fucking retard

I think we can turn the corner on Khabibs resume. He has now beaten, Conor, Porier, Barboza, Iaquinta and Dos Anjos. Cant really hate on the strength of his opponents now.

If he beats Tony it will be beyond reproach.

Khabib is the modern version of the 1990's Gracies. If you have superior grappling and you can impose it without exposing less-developed parts of your game, that is a categorically dominant approach to fighting. There is no response to being physically restrained by your opponent.

Todd Duffee wow that name is a blast from the past. Had some exciting finishes and then he disappeared forever, supposedly health related stuff.

“It’s 2019, do we really still need scantily-clad women to wander around the middle of a fighting ring between rounds?” Lord Mayor of Melbourne Sally Capp asked Herald Sun. “Grid girls are no longer part of Formula One, walk-on girls are no longer part of professional darts — surely it’s time to move on.”

Why is the old crusty bag trying to take jobs from women? They are getting paid. They are getting famous. They want to do it.

Masvidal made a great point in his latest interview, and it helps illustrate Dana's approval of this whole Baddest Motherfucker Belt thing.

He talked about why he was more interested in the Diaz fight, compared to a title fight against Usman. His reasoning was, he would rather take fights that are entertaining for the fans. He talked about how Usman (and Askren/Khabib) are "point fighters". They try to win by accumulating points and sticking to their strengths, not taking any chances or considering the fans.

He on the other hand, wants to put on exciting fights, knockouts, finishes, a true "show" for the fans. Dana subscribed to this, as he is all for the BMF angle. No one wants exciting fights more than Dana White. Epic slugfests/back and forth exchanges are what sells tickets, and that is what drives UFC profit.

Yea title fights and the ranking system are important, but at the end of the day entertainment is king. Guys like Usman and Khabib do not provide entertainment.
