  1. just a few days away from the big One FC show featuring the debuts of Alvarez and Mighty Mouse, also the first show to get any kind of American advertising and media push... anyone tuning in?
  2. i wasnt talking about him as a fighter, i meant his popularity/success away from being a fighter.
  3. Thats what i was talking about in my initial post, some people seem to think the guy is on the slide and revel in talking about it. Hes moved away from what made him, but outside of it hes doing incredibly well for himself. Back when it launched a lot of people seemed to take joy in the fact that Conor's whiskey was apparently of poor quality, it felt like it comforted people to know that it was flawed, yet it still smashed sales records and made him a ridiculous amount of money.
  4. Yeh i might have been a bit off with the billionaire thing 😄 think it stemmed from Dana White saying the whiskey would make him one, im sure i'd read other stuff about it though at the time of its launch because it was massively successful.
  5. Im not really sure what to make of Conor anymore. I mean, its not like hes on the decline from a fame and success standpoint, the guy is on course to be a billionaire if reports are to be believed. The knives are out for him though and its painting a picture of a guy far removed from the guy everyone fell in love with in the first place. I think as fight fans in our little bubble its become frustrating that he isn't around anymore, like the regular sitdowns with Helwani for example, the press conferences or any other kind of social media activity, back in the day it was all brilliant fun whether you loved or hated the man. The guy's just transcended the sport, he doesnt need to sport anymore and as people who enjoyed what he brought to the actual fight game its just disappointing that such a charismatic and entertaining personality isnt giving us what we want and has moved away from the game in his physical prime. Saying that, he'll be back...
  6. Surprised no one has mentioned Conor mentioning the word "formerly" in the tweet, thats clearly a dig at someone, or the UFC. He'll be back.
  7. an English version never surfaced anywhere so i didnt watch it, read a few reports though and the highlight of the night was undoubtably this...what a kick! Janikowski the bloke getting starched is KSW Olympic golden boy (Greco Roman Bronze medalist) seems he's tochave gone abit Aaron Pico, 3-2 now.

    did Warren and Lenny have a falling out? Warren talked about him quite negatively in an interview i saw a while back.

    anyone catch an IFL interview last week with Eddie Hearn where Kugan grilled Eddie about how much money he had in the bank. That spiralled into a conversation about what happened to Howard from the Halifax adverts, Eddie said if anyone could find Howard he'd get 2 free tickets to the Copperbox, well Saturday...
  10. echoing what Fook is saying about HD, i feel exactly the same way about live music footage. Have you seen a HD live concert with full home video production value? its painfully clean and sucks any kind of grimey, live feel away from it.
  11. of all the things i dislike about the WWE now, its the attempts at trying to capture audience reaction shots that annoys me the most. That Undertaker streak reaction kid ruined it for everyone because the WWE try to re-create it every few minutes and the supermarks in the crowd know it so they play for the camera instead of reacting organically, the worst.
  12. fucking hell, am i right in saying theres only 1 American on the card? pretty a Europeans only card.

    Yeh, we'll see how it goes. Considering he's headlining a big American arena against a German though he's gonna need to deliver. The American audiece will quickly lose patience and interest if the heavyweights dont bring the action.

    not really sure, i dont know alot about Schwarz other than hes never fought outside of Germany and that he had a wild fight with the bloke Derek Chisora is fighting next and won by DQ. A showcase this fight may be, and Fury has to fight someone but its a showcase on a massive stage, he has to go in and blow the guy out, thats what the American audience and his broadcaster will expect, nothing else will be good enough really.

    Buatsi should blow through Conroy but its his first British Title fight so its passable, Buatsti looks way above that level already though. Ritson isn't fighting Townend, hes fighting some Argentine for the WBA Intercontinetal title, hes moved up i weight too.

    we spoke about the (now off) Gorman/Maldonado fight in the week thats on BT. The better UK fight card is on Sky Sports this evening: quality little domestic show there topped with Charlie Edwards first World Title defence.
  17. Bellator 218 is tonight, its live on Sky Sports in the wee hours. fight card there ^

    aside from the money here which is great, i fear that Top Rank's idea of building Fury's profile in the States may backfire. Fury's stock is at all time high now, he was a viral superstar after December yet they've decided to slow build him and give him more US exposure, the problem with that is that Fury's more often than not in pretty dull fights. He'll no doubt outclass Schwarz with no issue, but he'll probably labour to a dull points win, if Fury wants to keep pushing his stock in the America especially, he needs to be going in and blowing guys like Schwarz away. I just dont see that happening. Be interesting to see what kind of ticket sales this thing does too.
  19. back on the subject of KSW 47, ive only just found out its streaming live in the US on DAZN, so theres a decent chance an English version may show up online at some point. Theres the fight card, some notable names there. The guy challenging Phil De Fries for the heavyweight title is the KSW 205lb champ whos coming off two wins over Mamed Khalidov.
  20. I dont think including people who got over because they were clearly very charismatic is the right thing to do here. Surely a shitarse is someone who had pretty much nothing going for them as far as attributes to stand out were concerned?
  21. Yeh thats true. I think DAZN and ESPN are a bit safer than that but i hear what you are saying. Is Eleven Sports still operating?

    a switch up in the Fury plans, all but confirmed now that he'll be fighting a German bloke called Tom Schwarz in May. It will officially be announced on ESPN's Pulev fight card on Saturday.
  23. yeh, id love to watch KSW regular. Their production level isnt far off UFC standard. They could really do with a UK TV deal though, the shows are streamed via PPV at the moment for a tenner or so, but they never fall right for me to tune in live though. The English version never pops up online afterwards either, its always Polish which puts me off. Props to Pudz though, i dont think anyone believed he'd have 20 fights when he started.
