    If Khabib gets stripped after Conor is rewarded for atttacking the bus, it would be a crime.

    Khabib has by far the best strike.

    What were the odds on a Khabib ko, because it looked like he almost had that for a second.

    Did you know Marcelo Garcia kicked Danis out of his gym a while back. Marcelo Garcia, the sweetest guy ever in BJJ couldn’t put up with this guys bullshit.

    Woodley and Bispig are great commentators. So is Cormier. So much better than boxers. Must be the college wrestling scholarships?

    Yeah, I don’t think we necessarily appreciate what some of this stuff means to people in other parts of the world. I remember meeting some Chechans when I was young and trying to figure out where they were from. They pointed to a map. “Oh, Russia?” That almost ended realllllly bad for me.

    Bisping just had a great point - "How different was Khabib's actions than Connor coming over the cage at Aldo after the Dennis Silver fight?

    Dana said Khabib’s teammates are headed to jail.

    Dana is also legit purple. Is that booze or drugs or what?

    I just watched the highlight clip from the pre-fight press conference. One, it was not opened to the public and two, CM was late to it.

    Khabib sits there calm and collected while CM talks about the bus, pulls out bottles of his whiskey brand, questions KN's manhood, and consistently interrupts when KN speaks.

    I can only imagine the Champ fantasizing about the damage he'll do in the ring while putting up with CM's usual ranting and raving.

    KN was absolutely wrong for jumping out of the octagon but boy, it takes quite a man to store all that vindictive energy in with a smile and unleash it in the ring.

    So I'm just assuming Khabib is getting stripped of the title in the fallout, Connor and Tony fight for the vacated title, and we are back here in a about year for Khabib vs the winner.

    That’d look awful. Conor jumped out of the ring and got a title fight against Aldo. Then attacked a bus and got this fight. Khabib jumps out of the ring and gets stripped?

    3 of them, to be exact.

    The purple seems like both terrible video processing and some adrenaline still rushing through his bald head.

    its the fight business baby. you know the only thing that matters is WHO DRAWS

    khabib doesnt so he'll get punished appropriately. conor and jon jones do so they are never punished appropriately.

    Noobs on the first best mma forum used to ask “is Dana a fighter?” And the running joke and his nickname was BLAF, because he wasn’t a fighter but he was Built Like A Fighter

    Other then Khabib essentially Jon Jones'ing his big moment, fight went pretty much as expected though.

    I don't see Connor beating Tony either.

    I'm not sure. My "NOT Nurmagomedov wins by TKO/KO" bet was -515, so I'd guess something like +375.

    He had pretty bad staph that fight. He looked great in round one then lost all his wind...he recovered nicely to maul barboza. I’d like to see him fight tony again healthy.

    Conor apparently refused to press charges and the guys were released. Not sure why not pressing charges matter; the assault is on video, but fairly standup of Conor.

    Not surprised- Replays show Conor threw the first punch in the cage. A cheap shot on one of khabibs training partners while they were both on top of the fence.

    Judges apparently gave CM the 3rd round. They all had it 29-27

    He dropped the charges because he took the first swing at one of Khabib's guys. Fan video caught this.

    It certainly does.

    He threw first on the fence:

    And then he threw first in the ring:

    I had no idea the biggest winner of the night was going to be Dillon Danis. Bravo to him.

    Again spelled Conor, he didn't look like himself. A little slow, not very lean, probably not himself after catching that crazy overhand.

    Khabib is facing trouble here, not from the UFC but from NSAC. I think he's probably facing a year long suspension, and the UFC will have to strip him. 155 have to keep moving.

    Lewis is quickly becoming my favorite fighter.

    Conor didn’t look like himself because he didn’t gas out early. Otherwise, he was exactly who a lot of people thought he was.

    I still think Conor is pretty damn good. It’s just obvious that Khabib’s elite ground attack is something that nobody can resist.

    Think this might have something to do with CM throwing blows in the ring with Khabib’s guys? Gimme a break with CM being the instigator.

    He’s top 5-10 in the division, which is world class, but he’s not great or historic outside his showmanship.

    Im with you on that. But showmanship counts for a lot in terms of his legacy. He’s helped raise the popularity of MMA significantly.

    I think it’ll depend how he goes out. He just turned 30 and has looked bad against Diaz twice, Khabib and Mayweather with that little detour. Showmanship is great, but you have to win, and his antics have crossed the line too.

    McGregor is one of five multi-weight champions in UFC’s history. There are better fighters than him who did not do that (Jones, Silva, Hughes), but that’s a feather for his cap. He will be viewed as a historic fighter and as an all-time great. Let’s not overreact to a loss to an excellent champion.

    If you think he looked bad against Diaz twice we just aren't going to agree on much on Conor at all. This to me was his worse looking performance. I actually started thinking he looked a little soft and unengaged during his walk in. I don't think he has the fire that pushed him to the top right now. He wouldn't be the first.

    Top 1-2 ever at 45 and top 5 now at 55. It's just really hard to be an all time great when there's a glaring hole in your game, especially when it's on the ground.
