AKA needs to be nerfed

Khabib vs fergurson would be amazing if that ever happened I feel like fergurson is the only one who has a chance vs him

This is the 4th out of his last 5 fights where conor takes a lot of punishment. He will pay a price for that punishment in the mid-long run now that he became 30. Aldo is still 'young' (32) but I feel he's already showing signs of age because of the damage his body has taken in his last fights

im a regular at nl5

What a performance by Khabib! The whole card delivered, from the prelims all the way to the melee and all the media and public after thought/discussions.

People that bet Conor pretty much was just a Hail Mary bet, and didn’t think logically. I’m big fan of Conor and is one of my favourite fighters but as a bettor I really had a hard time seeing him win this. I have to say tho, he has a very good way of convincing casuals that he will win during the build up.

Next should be Conor vs Gathje / Khabib vs Ferg / Lee vs winner of Diaz and Dustin.

longple: ur missing the point! this is an attempt to get away from the bumhuntmentality!

nope. he didn't convince the casuals enough. the odds on him actually went up as the casuals were betting money on khabib.

and don't agree it was a hail mary bet. a hail mary bet would be 10.00 odds where you know it's a hail mary. bookies had priced him at around 2.50 minutes before the fight.

l like khabib vs woodley or khabib vs ferguson next. mcgregor should not be in the octagon unless it's a rematch.

So the Nevada commission decided to not shove the videos of McGregor attacking Khabib's teammates first under the rug, he s also facing a suspension. This is kind of good for Khabib, as they should be potentially facing exact same suspensions, as they did the exact same thing, except Khabib is the initiator

Do the videos show that? I didn't see any good angles. One I saw looks like Conor is throwing a punch at a teammate of Khabib who is yelling at him from behind a security guy, but from a different angle it looks like that guy was running at Conor and Conor swings while the security guard is starting to intervene. If it is indeed the latter you could argue strongly that it is in self defence.

I don't really see what is so bad about what Khabib did. What some of his teamates did was bad but Khabib didn't do shit. Khabib was just on beastmode; won one fight and was ready to go some more vs the rest of connor's squad (who remember mobbed on him 40 deep and when he couldn't do shit because he needed this fight to happen to get paid). Khabib had to listen to so much shit talking and about how much of a pussy he is for staying on the bus etc. but really he just couldn't jeapordize payday. Once this fight was over it was fucking on and he wanted that faggot Dillon Danis's head.

Yes he can fight in Moscow so that gives Khabib a chance to perhaps defend his title there once, but that depends on the suspension, assuming its 1 year, perhaps Dana is fine with this, but also perhaps he thinks Conor vs Ferguson and winner vs the Khabib coming back would mean even more money.

If you think about it, lets say Conor beats Ferguson, a rematch between Conor, the real champ coming back with all the bad blood would be much bigger than any other scenario where Khabib isn't stripped.

Khabib gets PPV, Dana said so in the inteview, he also said those checks take a while to be written.

I agree 100% that the UFC should have done something with Conor, however Conor was in such a massive leveraged position I also understand why Dana decided to didn't do anything about it, and Conor is a multimillionare, but he certainly cares about losing millions and being arrested, but no obviously that wont change his shitty attitude, thats kind of change rarely happens.

If I support heavy penalties for Khabib it doesnt mean I support Conor antics, I think all sports not just MMA should dish out heavy penalties for anti-sportsmanship behavior, when they dont the sports becomes a circus, like football or Boxing.


mma is a fucking circus. this is ppv prize fighting. this shit is closer to WWE than a real sport. this shit sells tickets. embrace it.

It would be cool but Connor is never going to accept that fight. He will only agree to rematch Khabib, fight for a title or a superfight.

lol. but he has a point. after a couple of days the brawl was like meh.

No, he doesn't. You must be a big fan of Kundera's "The unbearable lightness of being" since you believe that since everything will be forgotten everything is forgiven in advance. You know what is "meh" also these days? WW1, WW2, any war, and basically any bad shit that has happened. It's how our brain works, in the long run we forget about the bad stuff, that's why we don't learn from history and why the majority of people have a huge problem when it comes to learning from their mistakes.

If you can't see what's bad about violence, even when provoked (not physically provoked obv), then don't go to the cops if someone beats the shit out of you (Obv I hope that you never experience that), maybe the way you walked provoked him? I don't like the USA for many reasons, but their freedom of speech is the single most important thing that any other nation should adopt in their culture. There are plenty of ways to deal with little bitches that talk a lot, especially if you're in the position of Khabib after just destroying the biggest UFC star. Violence is not one of them. He could've just waited for the interview with Joe Rogan and could've completely shat on Conor's camp and the fact that the whole public would've "Booed" him makes his statement even stronger.

On a completely different note - I'm pretty sure Conor looked scares shitless after the first round. That's actually amazing, I still don't wonder what Khabib was telling him when GnPing him


Also during the post-fight press conference Tony Ferguson said he hasn't sparred for 4-5 years now. That is fucking insane, what a fucking god dude. Unfortunately, those leg injuries will most likely be deciding if he fights Khabib, Khabib locked Conor's legs and had them pressured 24/7 that shit must be intense, if your legs arent healthy its probably really fuck up your movement later on in the fight.

Watched the fight again and cardio really fucks up his game. After the first round his mouth open, hands completely down and already loading on punches (when you're exhausted, you tend to swing for the fence instead of keep hand up). Seeing this Kevin Lee, Tony F, Ortega, Holloway, Khabib could probably figure out a way to grind him down first two rounds and just outlast him on the feet the rest of the fight. Poirer or Eddie could probably do the same too. He did way better than expected on ground defense but like all fighters becomes cowards if they have no air left. He needs at least 40% more than 6 minutes if he intends to dominate the division.

as a spectator of a sport in which essentially has become like the WWE, that 'brawl' two days later is meh. i have my own life to worry about, which isn't meh to me. that event was nothing but a distraction to me. it's entertainment.

this is true. conor's movement wasn't quite there too. it looked like he didn't train for anything where he's strong at and only trained for defending khabib's wrestling.

maybe. but still wanna see that match up. i hope khabib doesn't get suspended that long.
