Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
3am our time he's due in the ring.

Regardless of what you say about the bloke, he's fucking entertaining.

That's more like the WHO I know.

Hold on a moment. Khabib is Muslim, right?

Why should we be sticking up for him? He wants us all dead?

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
no eerie, i never used cunt towards you did i? to be honest, apart from chuck liddell, i didn't give the ufc much attention at all before i started watching rogan's podcasts. im a boxing fan, but even i can appreciate how hard a game the ufc is, but you can keep the performing chimpanzees like mcgregor, even if millions idolize them

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
I am a huge boxing fan but UFC have done an amazing job turning a 2 million dollar business into 4 billion in 16 years. I don’t quite think the pikey Irish cunt is behind all of that growth.

Although it’s been a good year for boxing, the sport needs to learn two very important things which ufc get right and are streets ahead of boxing in this regard. The first is consistently making the big fights, getting the best in with the best. The second is the standard and corruption of referring - boxing is rotten to the core in this regard at all levels.

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
Hermit, I make your first paragraph spot on. Disagree with the second. But I'm not a massive MMA fan and I'm never gonna change your mind anyway so it doesn't matter.

TM, I agree. Its classless. All I'm saying is that it sells. And that's all it comes down to. That's why people who've never heard of anyone you mention (trust me, there are a few) know all about Mike Tyson, for example. The same sort of mongs who pay to watch UFC cos of McGregor making a show of himself 20 years ago would have been paying to watch boxing cos Tyson was saying he was gonna eat Lewis's children.

“golovkin, hagler, benn, calzaghe”

But they’re all boxers.

Even with boxing you get all the staged beefs and trash talk beforehand and like it or not, and I don’t like it much, it sells tickets. I don’t begrudge fighters their earnings in what is a brutal sport so I don’t mind them doing what they have to do to sell fights.

UFC though is really, really boring and a tad gay, so take away McGregor’s ability to gain exposure outside of the small world of MMA, and your revenue drops massively. That fight was the first MMA I’ve ever watched live, I don’t think I’ll be bothering again for a while. They sold it well though.

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
Miike, a cunt I most definitely am, but what has ever given you the impression I follow the rule of any cunt on here?

You like the UFC mate, but let's be real, it is a periphery sport. McGregor transcends it beyond what it ever could be without him, whether you like him or not.

McGregor IS the UFC

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
golovkin, hagler, benn, calzaghe. just a few champions who didn't behave like clowns to sell fights. fuck mcgregor and all the sheep that buy his bullshit, the cunt was always a myth

Takashi Miike 2:16 Sat Oct 13
Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
mashed, it's beyond hype and conventional trash talk when the pikey starts being personal about the bloke's parents, religion and race. there was also the bus incident, that may have been a staged event, but is still shameful with him throwing things through a bus window full of khabib's team, while accompanied by his entourage of hanger ons. everything that happened post fight was spot on, i just wish khabib and his pals had hit them harder

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
Choice for the UFC:-

Go back to the days of "respect", no trash talking, handshakes and complementing your opponent to appeal to purists = $

Keep Conor, the trash talking, the hype, the publicity, if anything turn it all up to appeal to the masses = $$$$$$$$$$$

There are many other MMA promotions that mostly keep everything respectful and no fuckers heard of them. Same with kickboxing. Just how it is.

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
Agree with Miike the UFC and MMA used to be about respect the Pikey does not belong there

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
Spot on, Hermit. A sport for middle-age, balding men who haven't come out of the closet.

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
Hermit is unfortunately right. The UFC would have made millions out of people who probably couldn't name a single other fighter. Sad truth about all top level sports... money is king.

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
absolute bollocks hermit. i heard the same when that other fraud/myth mayweather was at the top of the tree. i think ufc would be better off without the classless irish cunt

Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
You could say exactly the same about top level boxing, Hermit.

See also the amount of birds who are suddenly massively into boxing cos of AJ.

Hermit Road 10:45 Sat Oct 13
Re: Anyone watching the Khabib vs McGregor fight?
The only reason they earned more than 10k each for that fight was because McGregor sells fights and sells them with his mouth. He brings it to a new audience who aren’t that interested in MMA as it is. Without those, the paying fans would be limited to a few latent homosexuals with a fetish for seeing half-naked men role around on the floor.

Thing is trash talking and personal insults sells. Especially over here and in the states.

See the amount of people on this very thread who've said "Conor is MMA/UFC" or words to that effect.
