    Love the show but have to say this is my least favorite lineup. Need Dave Doyle and Chuck on here. Luke and Jeff always the same act. Luke goes on and on, Jeff talks meritocracy. Let's get some fresh blood on here. Ariel always does a great job.

    Matt Hughes made over a million dollars during his career. Just because he mismanaged his money potentially, doesn't mean combat sports should be blamed, Ariel. Most people hardly make close to a million in their entite lifetime, so this isn't sad.

    Belfort could fight Rashad in that case.

    Dana White has his reasons behind saying that May-McG is happening. It has to be some kind of strategic move. I´m not sure what it means ultimately... But I´m pretty convinced that he´s playing for something...

    I agree the health consequences might be bad for two older men are fighting, a la, matt hughs vs Gracie but isn't there just of a chance of health consequences between two 0-0 amateur fights? The skill level could be must more lopsided on at least these veterans have trained most their life to avoid bad situations. (obviously harsh KO's not included)

    I think if you guys(media) had any legitimate understanding of range and timing, you'd think twice before saying Conor has no chance at beating Floyd. You have to know there is no validity in what you say since you've never competed in a combat sport. Yes, Floyd will most likely win as far as conventional wisdom goes. But in combat sports, anything can happen. Conor will not be easy for Floyd to figure out as he is awkward and has excellent understanding of range and timing. Conor also is a national youth boxing champion, which means he has boxing fundamentals and will be able to reapply them in a boxing match. You can see it when he fights in the octagon, glimpses of it at least.

  • nilanniruthan
    nilanniruthan 2 месяца назад

    So the commission has to "explain" to these guys why they would sanction the McGregor-Mayweather fight? This is why MMA was kept down for so long; because of pompous, entitled "purists" who don't get that the vast majority of fight fans are in it for the entertainment value. Just shut up and let the fight happen, don't watch it if you don't like it.

      nilanniruthan exactly. No explanation needed. A skilled fighter should be able to risk getting beat up by a 40y/o boxer for millions of dollars if he wishes.

    I got this feeling Yair is gonna do great, everyone counting him out, idk why people hate when a guy gets any push. Schaub said NoLove shouldn't be fighting Cruz or anyone at the top until a few fights but BOOM he showed, let guys get the chance, its a win win, if he loses he gets the experience of elite competition and adjust or he was always ready and elite. I think people really want Frankie to get a titles shot and this is a dangerous fight and not easy plus they have nostalgia for him and not looking at the matchup unbiased

  • Larry Fisher

    Who has Rodriguez beat? BJ Penn doesn't even count.- - Dana White has been planing McGregor vs Mayweather for months. That is why he made the interim title match. He knew that Conor would be out for a while pursuing the boxing match against Mayweather and the UFC would make BIG money off of that. I just find it hard to believe that a boxing commission will sanction this fight. The best boxer alive today against a man that has NEVER even stepped inside a boxing ring.

    It's a lot easier to find the exit door when you have a steady income. That is one reason fighters come back. The other is the rush. The rush of standing in the octagon and having 16,000 people cheering your name.

    They have a masters tennis circuit which is quite entertaining they've still got all the skill they used to have it's just a slower game. I'm sure it'd work similarly with mma. Although I agree with Vitor on the longer rest between rounds unless you want to see dada vs kimbo 2

      rahowhero X We definitely glorify our athletes to the point where they are Gods. Plus it's fun to have a drunken argument of who is the best of all time. The rest of the world does it with futbol, and a hall of fame also gives the opportunity to appreciate great players in other sports where they don't seem to stand out because of their positions like: defenders (futbol), field goal kicker (American football), or most submissions (MMA). Or we simply don't have anything else to do.
