    I can tell my Uncle is intelligent by the thoughtful way he rolls that booger on his thumb as he ponders the merits of Rosenstruik.

    Got to be Conor and khabib if khabib beats Tony, but I think it’s Tony’s time baby.
    And Jorge fighting USMAN, USMAN Will baptise Jorge big time.

    If Conor can keep his mind set on his passion he’ll be unstoppable unless he allows himself to be overwhelmed by the life as a superstar, again.

    There's a lot of Connor copycats people who try to talk like him act like you because that's what selling nowadays but I remember back in the day fighters have their own identities like Fedor emelianenko was extremely calm and focus Chuck Liddell was always ready for war Randy couture had a Captain America vibe about him you don't see fighters trying to be their on self anymore like these fighters I just name take control of your identity never sacrifice your for money you'll lose love for a quick

    I think people love the Conor McGregor debating on everything from his whiskey his left hand everything he seems to evolve and everybody is trying to copy him but do not realize that they copy the old version where Conor McGregor moves forward through time to the Future

    Here is my math to how Conor made 80m: The PPV is 59.99$ BUT they threw in that ESPN+ for a year deal for only 20$ for this particular ppv, and I'm pretty positive everyone who bought the ppv got the deal WHICH LEADS to the ppv being worth 80$. 80$ x 2m PvP buys = 160m$. So if Conor gets half.........

    Everyone who is involved in MMA is trolling. 90% of comments and information from fighters or fight promoters or media people, is just hyperbole. It's not real. It's superfluous. Example: Conor saying he made $80 million dollars. Never once was that intended to be a fact. It was just hyperbole. And Dana White saying "Masivdal is too big" for Conor, was a troll job. The fact that Conor didn't realize Dana was trolling is very disturbing. If you're new to the sport, just try take things less seriously. MMA is not based on reality, it's based on myths and legends. ;)

    Masvidal can’t wear the belt that he beat the shit out of Nate Diaz to earn? It’s not power dill weed it’s dollar signs. The dude wore a robe, brought the belt and said he wanted the fight. After Conor didn’t reciprocate (who can blame him for being scared of that killer) Masvidal went right after Usman. He said exactly why he wanted the Conor fight. Mucho diniero

    people keep over looking poirier, do people somehow forget that poirier knocked justin the fuck out last year and is ranked ahead of him? lol and it would be a well deserved rematch from a guy that actually respects conor? guarantee conor fights poirier first and justin scared to fight anybody else cuz lets keep it real micael johnson had rhe bum almost sleep walking, poirier and alvarez fucking destroyed him and conor wiped the floor with them guys. i liked justin but his manager is ali so i cannot stand him anymoreZ

    Dana thinks Masvidal is too big for Connor, he does not want Connor to fight him yet. Dana wants Connor to have another fight or 2 before meeting Masvidal. Doesn't want to risk a loss for Conner. I agree.

    how much of that 80 million claim was also based on increased sales of proper 12 after the promotions in the ring?
    conor probably didn't only project his revenue from the fight strictly on fight money with the rest he has going on now.

    Connor can fight masvidal or usman and it would not hurt the draw of a Connor khabib fight. If he loses to a 170lber... So what? That doesn't demish him. He loses he can chalk it up to him being 170 in the ring and usman pushing 200 in the ring. It doesn't hurt him if he loses. But picture what would happen if he wins! If Connor did beat masvidal (who he COULD) and went against khabib afterwards it would only make that fight bigger. There is just nothing to lose if he fights masvidal or even usman first (that would be a bad fight for Connor).

    Didn't Dana say BMF is a one and done deal? Meaning whoever won the belt(Jorge) keeps it and its not going to be defended. It was a special thing for that fight between two bad ass fighters to see who is the baddest. We got a winner so let it be. Connor doesn't need the BMF belt if he wants to fight Mazvidal.

    He said he made 50mil in the Khabib fight. Its fair to assume he will make at least that,cause I'm pretty sure Khabib got a bigger PPV % then Cowboy got. Meaning Conor probably got a bigger PPV % this time around.

    Jerry O'Connor January 19, 2020 at 3:03 PM
    Behind the scenes, before the fight was booked, in negotiations Dana White convinces Cowboy that ‘the fans want a knockout’ and, before inking the fight, reminds Cowboy that the payout is millions of dollars, win or lose.. all Cowboy has to do is ‘give the fans what they want’ and none of that grappling B.S. cuz ‘fans don’t wanna see that shit in a McGregor fight’. They produce their own rigged analytics and PPV numbers to convince Cowboy.
    Cowboy catches Dana’s drift, there is a gentleman’s agreement, Dana knows he can trust Cowboy.. Subconsciously Cowboy knows he’s to stand in there for the greater good of the company to earn his biggest paycheck yet.
    A fighter agrees to dive without really agreeing to dive consciously.
    And here we are.
    …remember Mayweather vs Mac was literally a BILLION dollar fight.
    Billion with a B, my ninja..
    The money is in setting up another boxing match with Pac-man or Mayweather.. and other super fights, right(?)
    The reason Cowboy was chosen was bcuz he indirectly (and subconsciously) agreed to pull this off for Dana..
    Which, again, explains why it was at 170 lbs instead of 155 - why cut weight for a rigged fight(?)
    Which explains the no trash talking - why talk shit and play mental warfare for rigged fight(?) Etc.
    Cowboy didn’t land a single strike. He threw 1 head kick.
    Do you know how rare that is in the UFC. It almost never happens, if at all.. we should look it up.
    Shit was a set up…
    When I was 6 years old I figured out the WWF was fake and it hurt lol… Dana White just did that shit to us again!

    1 thing i know regarding khabib / tony is people are writting tony off ... khabib has never faced a monster like tony, meaning a monster in the way like masvidal is a monster where they are going to bring extreme violence.... should khabib win which he very well may not, he is going to look like he has been in ww3...he is NOT simply going to maul the shit outa tony no fkin way

    Slightly different take on Conor.. now that he weighs 170 could it be that he packed the muscle on and fought at 170 to test it and is hoping the extra strength will help in the khabib rematch?

    You can tell Jorge wants the Conor fight first because if he loses to Usman, he might not get the red panty night payday.
    He has to be afraid of Conor's left, but to think he isn't concerned with Usman's pace with Colby or control with T-Wood?
    Let's not kid ourselves.
