That was a bit frightening

265lb dudes..
I once weighed 279 lol at 6'

That left tagged him going mostly vertical.. Hardy looked like he was worried it broke his nose straight up into his head..

Burns would've beaten Usman had he not saw his friend and teammate there and would've kept beating on him when he had him staggered into another world

Should've been a 5 round fight

McGregor and Dana allowing his (bleep) really helped build this sport

he was a master of Law of Attraction

recent interview with him and Anthony Robbins.. regardless of what we think of Robbins he has been everywhere with that big head of his

Connor makes me believe in a God.. huh. . I only read some of the miserable crude things he said
and some things are overboard
talking bad things about Dustins wife and family etc turned me into someone who
wanted him retired... go away with all that

But then Dustin says Connor telling him he was going to murder him in the ring ...That leg break is Karma...

He’s done in regards to belts but like Nate he will makemoneyoff of exhibition fights. As Dana says when youre wealthy it’s hard to fight. Conor is that.

Stephen A Smith is horrible.

Nice seeing Greg hardy get smashed

He’s selling the 4th fight.

Even on one ankle.

Close to a billionaire.

He’s legit like no one I’ve ever seen. Good or bad. He’s nuts with his comments but how many people wanna pay to see Conor vs Dustin 4 now? I would bet it still draws more money than 90 percent of other headliners Dana could put up.

Shame he broke the shin, because the fight itself was awesome up until that part. Looked like Dustin had the upper hand but it could go any way. McGregor is not an elite fighter anymore though, he’s competitive and can stay in a fight with the elites but he will rake wins only against the second tier now like RDA, etc. He doesn’t have the same timing and arguably his body is starting to fade as well.

I would still watch Conor vs Dustin 4, Conor vs Gaethje, Conor vs Chandler etc but he may lose all those fights! I appreciate he still wants to fight the elites and does it now as an underdog. I also appreciate his ability to sell a fight. Make no bones about it. The reason he flipped the script is to sell the fight. It’s all business for him. And honestly I was much more hyped after watching that craziness than the boring love fest they had going on/during/after their 2nd fight. I much prefer this McGregor. Only, unlike 2013-16 he can’t back it up now against the elites. He’s going to be the underdog against every elite fighter he goes up against rest of his career.

So Dustins wife flips off McGregor after. lol
This is WWE with real fighting.
Dana can say whatever he wants but there will be a 4th fight if McGregor returns to MMA.

Bit disappointing to hear the delusion and nonsense coming from Conor after the fight.

He was losing that round clearly, made a huge mistake trying the submission with Dustin. And then to be taking about Dustin’s wife after is just classless.

we know dustins next fight which he may not survive. conor is at least a year away. IMHO he fights nate next. No belt just a money grab for everyone involved.

Conor's done. He hasn't had a "quality" win since 2016.

Yep. It's time for Nate Diaz or some other exhibition type fight. To me, people are missing the obvious with Conor. His power simply doesn't translate to 155 (on top of all the other crap he has going on). His sole quality win was against Eddie Alvarez and if y'all remember, Conor dwarfed him in size during that fight. That left doesn't have the same sting against bigger guys. I was the biggest Conor stan but the ship has sailed for my man. Time to hang it up, babbling on your ass is simply humiliating. The guy truly appeared to be an 8 year old that got whooped in an online game cursing into his hot mic. Embaressing.

@ WPL - I'm not buying that he was still selling the fight. That visceral reaction was from the heart. We were watching a desperate man trying to hang onto his mystique. He ended up looking like a petulant child.

In the heat of the moment it was hard to accept Herb stopping the fight but maybe his conscience was getting to him.. That kid took the fight on 10 days notice if I understand correctly...

11 days

The stoppage was acceptable...The WHAT IF... was probably weighing too heavily on Dean...

I agree he’s done being elite
He can beat second or third tier like Cerrone maybe Diaz etc

But I def think it’s all hype to promote new fights

He’s going to get a title shot if Dustin wins the title in about 10 months from now (roughly) and that’s insane because he’s had one win in 5 years (6 by then). All due to mass promotion.... Dana White all but guaranteed a 4th fight. And Poirer isn’t saying no to the money a McGregor fight makes him.

He has a higher potential of being incarcerated in the next 10 months than he does fighting Dustin again.

Hopefully Dustin says.. I have enough money. I don't need to share my fame with this creep. Let him fight some geriatric ex UFC star

After the fight Connor posted cryptic death threats about Dustin and his Daughter.. dude is a sick (bleep) who lost his mind during all his time off...

I personally don't think he deserves any more attention from UFC/Zuffa whatever it is
