    Action McGregor v Khabib - Who are you backing?

    It's a tough one to call. McGregor has the hands. Khabib mauls people with his wrestling.

    In most other cases of Striker vs Wrestler, the wrestler will win. However, Conor will do all he can to stay in his feet, perhaps KN will get more impatient and get caught coming in.

    I was team McGregor until the Floyd debacle. Everything since then had been nothing short of a fucking shit show, with Dana lapping it up.

    For that reason I hope Conor gets his fucking head smashed in.

    Self centered obnoxious cunt

    The recent presser was a joke.

    That presser Conor looked drunk, he was talking more shite than usual. I really liked it before, but seemed like he wasn't quite on his A game in the presser. It's hard when your opponent isn't really replying too I guess. Conor just trying to hype it up. The McGregor Mayweather first presser was quite fun then it just went to shit after that.

    Actual presser starts at 43 mins:

    I also think he was drunk. Not sure what deal he struck with UFC that allowed CM to promote his own whiskey at a heavily sponsored UFC event.

    Dana went from one moment calling the bus attack to actively using it to promote the fight. UFC fucking suck now, and I've been in since UFC 8.

    They make fights for cash, not due to rankings, they need to sort out the weight cut issues.

    Not a big fan of UFC , I think McGregor's not had a proper fight for too long and that will count against him so Khabib for me.

    Agree, Ring Rust can really hit a fighter, although you have to remembe Conor is one hell of an athlete so would expect him to bounce back and that not be an issue.

    He's come across as a total joke in that press conference, I used to quite like his banter in those but not any more. IMO the bus attack was nothing but a publicity stunt to sell the fight, same as a lot of the stuff that goes on in boxing with fake rivalries.

    The Mayweather fight was shocking, I didn't expect him to have a chance of winning but expected him to bring something to the ring at least, just another payday.

    The bus incident is an interesting one, as I know for a fact, UFC and Dad loved every minute of it. I don't think it was a publicity stunt, there are far too many factors at play here.

    He's a scum bag from Crumlin, once a scumbag always a scumbag, so the mentality of going off like that is second nature to him. In addition, I think he knew Khabib woulod have never got off the bus.

    The fact flying glass his Michael Chiesa and his fight that nigh was cancelled due to a cut on his forehead, was far too risk. If that'd had gone into his eye and blinded him, that would have been a much bigger lawsuit that it is already.

    Rose Namajunas and the other lass, Esparza I think it was also pulled from their fights.

    So for me, no way was it a stunt, but I would bet the UFC had something to do with him turning up (via the back door in service yard) to get him into the presser.


    Floyd fight was all about cash he knew he had no chance. He was outboxed and out cardio'd by Nate, so Floyd new it was an easy payday, as did Conor.

    But yeah, he's lost a lot of mutual support now, and majority of his fan are the fighting irish now.

    Fucking glad Conor lost.

    Don't blame Khabib at all, the UFCs promotion of CM and his circus has been fucking shameless.
