It's also about the "optics", most people didn't actually see the bus thing.

This shit happened while people were still watching the broadcast.

First of all, I want to say sorry to the athletic commission, Nevada and sorry to Vegas. This is not my best side. I'm a human being, but I don't understand how people can talk about jumping on the cage when he talks about my religion, he talks about my country, he talks about my father and he comes to Brooklyn and he broke the bus and almost killed a couple of people. What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage? I don't understand. ... You cannot talk about religion, you cannot talk about nations, you cannot talk about this stuff. This is for me very important.

This is America, bitch. We can talk about whatever we want.

Conor crossed a line. Dana let it happen. Khabib was in the wrong here, but what he did is still nothing compared with the bus attack

Part of me wonders if the bus thing was a planned publicity stunt


Flying 30+ guys across the ocean to attack fighters in a bus seems a bit much, no?

Watching this fight over again and the replays is really eating into my productivity at work today. Never before have I felt more compelled to re-watch a fight

I was reminded last night of this clip. Specifically Brock at 3:00. Beat Mir up badly then calls him a pussy. Epic.

I'm definitely NOT a huge Conor fan and I appreciate some nice grappling. And recognize the skill and strength it takes.

But I also agree with LV that Khabib is boring AF to watch.

Rogan explains why that was a legit choke, despite what the fanboys say.

Huh? Are people really saying that? I never even thought about that because clearly Conor was done. He was fucking gassed.

Nurmagomedov is an idiot. Does he not understand how unmarketable he is? Does he think he'll really get a better shake and more money at Bellator? He should just shut his mouth and wait for another big payday against Conor, which he will undoubtedly win.

I had heard before his fight that his plan was to go in - beat the UFC golden boy and retire with an unbeaten record, so all of this follows that theme.

OK, but I'd rather see him beat the shit out of Cormier again.

Id say 70% chance Jones fucks it up before fight day.

Cause there's any good reason for them to do that. The guy that hit Conor from behind though, he deserves to be prosecuted
