You folks are dreaming.

The big fight is Connor v. Khabib 2. All the shit talking leading up to that should be thoroughly entertaining.

Khabib annihilated Connor. Connor would only do it for the money. I think he is officially shook.

An animal is most dangerous when they're shaken.

I'm not ready for this ride to end.

they'll definitely do a re-match, too much $$ not to do one...........

But Khabib is going to be suspended most likely - Dana won't do it (too chicken) but Nevada State Athletic Commission will.....6 months perhaps?

In the meantime, Connor can do a trilogy with Nate Diaz in the meantime....

Conor didnt listen to his corner who told him to let Khabib come to him. He didn't circle off with his back against the cage. Expected Khabib to maul him.

On the hardness scale, Russian trumps Irish.

Rogan and Co. talking about what happened right after the fight



Highlight: Something foul was said from Connor's corner to Khabib that set him off. Khabib comes from a religious honor society, and C-team knew exactly what to say to play on that.

In my opinion Conor believes his own hype. I don't believe Conor has a chance to win but heaven forbid if he wins he wont be able to get his head through any door.
Its nice to be right.

Dana asked for the after fight WWE style to get ready for Brock if he ever comes.

Dana is not a master strategist, he just let this spiral out of control because it's an immense media event and a huge moneymaker.

Chael Sonnen and Ariel Helwani discuss Post-Fight Brawl


Chael is putting too much blame on Khabib, Khabib and company were wrong in allowing this assault to unfold, but it's clear who the instigators were. Connor's circle egged Khabib on, leading him to jump the octagon. Meanwhile Khabib's boy did the same thing to Connor, where Connor launched the first fist, with Khabib's guy lighting him up thereafter.

Connor threw the first punch:




No wonder he didn't want to press charges.


Hopefully Connor learned not to mess with that part of the world as they are clearly about that life!!!
Tx, I was looking for that.

I get it, but Khabib proved his point by schooling Connor.
Should've ended it there. Doesn't excuse him for attacking Connor's team outside of the cage. I can't help but feel Khabib is too thin skinned for selling fights.

Connor is a salesman and knows how to market and sell fights, and most fighters can only dream of getting matched up with him because it means a million dollar pay day. You just have to endure the antics and nonsense that comes out of Connor's mouth.

Yup, I get it, some of the stuff apparently was quite personal, but they're just WORDS man, just let his fighting in the cage do the talking. Heck, I didn't even mind him mouthing off at a defeated Conor afterwards but to get triggered like that to jump into the crowd? Guy seemed super chilled, calm and collected but I guess everyone has a boiling pt. Still, not good.

I think he actually spat on Connor, not just mouth off after the submission. In society, definitely advocate civilized demeanour.

But this is entertainment, and I'm glad Connor got served! End of the day, he's laughing with $$$, so I don't feel the slightest bit of sympathy for him, one bit.

I saw that but was thinking naw, couldn't be...it's proven he actually spat on him? That would be sick (literally).
