    It's the only logical fight if he's coming back at 205lbs, isn't it?

    I know there's always a chance that AJ approaches a fight with Wilder entirely differently. but if Wilder finds his face as easily as Povetkin did, and as easily as some of his opponents in the past have, I would place my entire life savings on AJ getting dropped if they meet. Beaten? Who the fuck knows, as it would likely be a fight where both guys end up on the canvas a couple of times each unless Wilder catches him with one of those crushing KO blows he chucks sometimes. I still think an AJ/Fury fight, provided Fury is anything like the guy he once was, would end in a bit of a shitfest decision win for the big goon. I think he'd make it an 'orrible fight and jab and hold his way to a comfortable win, as AJ doesn't look all that technically gifted to be honest.

    An AJ and Fury win will likely see those two have to work together, which would be as interesting as the fight itself in many ways!

    UFC 229: Khabib vs McGregor

    He's hardly fucking fluent in English these days.

    UFC 229: Khabib vs McGregor

    Yeah, I'm not talking about his actual physical antics like grabbing the belt and so on, i'm talking about his general demeanour. At no point last night did he look in control of himself. He was stuttering, getting his words mixed up, looking quite flustered a lot of the time. As I said, there were more than a few instances where I was actually puzzled as to what he was saying. Could it all be an act? Possibly. I don't think it is though. Remember we were all discussing the weird lack of build for this? Some of us wondering why it hadn't been as intensive as previous McG fights? Some thought it may be because he was demanding time to to train and so on? I think we know the answer now. White looked as though he was shitting himself the full time, as though he just wanted to get it over and done with as soon as possible and get McGregor the fuck off the stage. And while he may have been doing his research, he needs to watch who's he's badmouthing and who he's running down when he's saying these things. It's all well and good for us sitting in front of our laptops in Wirral or Hull who think it's fantastic and very pro wrasslin-esque, but when a guy who was born and raised in that region refuses to respond to what you're saying and chooses to stay quiet it should be a bit of a pointer. You start a coke-fuelled rant about shit like that and you can wind up with problems. Virtually every book I've ever read that even hints about the politics in the northern Caucasus regions goes to great lengths to point out that you cannot generalise about that part of the world. I'm sure (not 100% though) that I've read that there are something like ten different groups who all claim to be indigenous to the area, and there are around 30 spoken languages in the place. Unless McGregor's absorbed the kind of information that many experienced tenured Professors still have problems getting their heads around there's every chance he's getting a lot of what he's saying wrong, and you don't want to be getting shit wrong and possibly offending the kind of people that can be found both living there and from there. Most will not even know who he is or what he's saying, but there are loose canons who will take umbrage at a white westerner chatting shit about their country while speaking Islamic phrases and brandishing alcohol around. I've heard from some fairly reliable sources that Conor's coke-fuelled mouth and behaviour has gotten him into trouble with some tasty people at home, with him being so wrapped up in his own aura that he's went from dressing like El Chapo and Tony Montana to thinking he is them. The boy is a liability, and I'd hoped after this fight he'd maybe go away and get himself straightened out.

    Is the aim just to annoy him though? I always though in the past that the stuff McG said was to make his opponents doubt themselves, to make them start to believe that maybe their game plan wasn't going to work? That what they considered to be their strengths wasn't actually their strengths? I recall him against Aldo being very sure of himself, consistently talking about how he was going to destroy him, he would be talking about victory in a very matter of fact way. Last night he was a sweaty, bug eyed twitcher, hurling lines about Khabib's old man smelling of shite. In all honesty I think Khabib had problems understanding anything he said. Christ, I'm fucking Scottish and I had problems understanding what he was saying at certain points!

    UFC 229: Khabib vs McGregor

    The whole fucking organisation is, for the most part, very politically questionable, and I guess you can't really blame the fans when the President is leading from the front. Talented black champion claims that his platform is something he wants to use to address racial inequality in the United States. That's a good thing, right? He's in a position of celebrity to an extent, and as a seemingly stand up guy he makes some pretty valid comments regarding the state of race relations in the US, and also within the UFC. now, any other company, profession or whatever where a prominent member of staff makes noises about what he perceives as racial issues you see the company look to address them, check out his claims, see what's what. President of the UFC takes time away from speaking at his Trump convention to claim that his black champion is "a drama queen," and if he was just a little more like his white champion and concentrated on fighting and selling PPV's by calling people cholo's and faggots then maybe the fans would like him rather than laugh at his claims of racial injustice as him "whining." Thing is, when this shit with Conor is all done and dusted and he fucks of back to his pile of coke were getting the main event as far as politically uncomfortable shit goes. Covington is already accusing Woodley of race baiting, and dear old Dana has already taken him to the fucking White House so he can pose with one of the most devisive leaders of our time. by the time that fight rolls around the memory of Conor calling a Muslim a backwards cunt will seem like a distant memory. I honestly don't know if it's just age or what, but I'm really starting to dislike MMA. It is, in my opinion, worse for boneheaded bigoted hillbilly shit today than it was during the "just bleed" era, and that's saying something.

    Yeah, I made the mistake of attending a UFC event in the U.K once. I'll not make the same mistake twice, it was full of absolute mouth breathers. I shudder to think what a local promotion is like, or cage rage back in the day. I'm not sure why, but I had a feeling that he was going to do something alcohol-related tonight. I'm sure some will say he's just selling his wares and all that jazz, but he picks the time he's sitting on a stage with a fucking Muslim to do it? Then proceeds to pour a cup and put it in front of the guy before saying what he said? Then again, maybe they didn't have Muslims in his little Irish village where he grew up, and he simply doesn't understand their foreign ways? Same as he doesn't understand what offends the blacks or the gays?

    UFC 229: Khabib vs McGregor

    Yeah, it's one of those ones really. The fact that virtually no one is mentioning it kind of tells you the level that MMA is at really. We don't see it because we're in a bubble to an extent, but it really is among the worst of the worst. Coked up Irish guy places a cup of alcohol in front of a Dagestani Muslim who says he doesn't want it becaus he doesn't drink alcohol. Irish man asks why not, and then before Muslim man answers yells obscenities at him and calls him a "backwards cunt." in any other section of society this wouldn't be acceptable, but in MMA it's cool because it's all part of getting the muzzie "rattled" before a big fight.

    Don't get me wrong, I'll definitely enjoy the fight, but from the perspective of an actual human being there's probably no way he should be doing any of this. He looks like Celebrity Big Brother material. I see he's not lost any of his classic "innocent banter" right enough, nothing better than referring to a Muslim as a "backwards cunt" when he doesn't accept a drink of your alcohol.

    And that's why you should stay away from drugs, kids. No wonder Dana is trying to keep this build up as controlled as possible. I actually feel sorry for McGregor, twitching and shuddering away in his chair, he's a shadow of the sharp, smart guy we saw a few years back.

    This is the section of the forum where real fighting is discussed, lads. Take the WWE fantasy matchmaking to the appropriate area, eh?

    Thing is, he can have all his millions in the bank, but when the lights are out and he's laying awake in bed at night he'll know... Jon Jones made him cry.

    Anyone see the TMZ interview with Khabib at the airport in New York? The interviewer asked him if he's planning on trying McGregor's whiskey 😐
