You're a credit to your community!

This does feel like the least hyped mcgregor fight since like Poirier.

If he still draws big its purely on his star power, not much promotion to speak of.

Conor needs a radical social or moral position that he can evoke when he goes meglomanic like Ali did

Like, if Ali didn't have his NOI stuff every once and awhile he would have just been a crazy rear end in a top hat.

I liked how he started going on about how he's the last one to have an ego and spends most of the 20+ minute interview having an ego about even being asked questions about his fight

I want to see him talk to Schaub to see who comes out sounding more brain damaged

It's funnier when you know how to say it without sounding like a dipshit though

Joanna says the fight fell apart due to UFC trying to move the date up a month on short notice

https://mmajunkie.com/2018/10/joann...vchenko-ufc-231

quote:

Me pulling out of fight? Never! Here is the truth. Yesterday I was informed that my fight had been cancelled. Unfortunately, I received this news from journalists, I was very shocked. I feel angry and sad. The already signed contract on the 8th of December was ignored. They were trying to persuade me into taking the fight in November, at the same time depriving me of a chance to properly prepare for the fight during the camp. Valentina is a challenging opponents, and my goal was (and actually still is) to prepare for this fight as best I can, and to eventually become the UFC flyweight champion

There are no men like me. There's only me.

Browsing the fight odds. I'm a bit surprised Pettis is a +300 underdog. I know he's had a drop off and switching weight classes but it's obvious he's still dangerous.

Valentina is going to fight someone who's in actual danger in the cage against her instead of one of the most dominant champs in the sport. The reason for this is because November is marginally more convenient than December for the UFC. exhibit 420 of why should I care about this sport or its belts at all

I feel like Pettis doesn't have one shot power, and against a more unorthodox striker in Ferguson, he's gonna have trouble landing at a good rhythm enough to test Tony's chin.
He may or may not be able to do something tricky on the ground, but even there he's at best a match for Tony.

Itís dumb and the Joanna fight makes more sense in every way other than fulfilling their desperate need for an MSG main, but when the TUF competitors are the division, who should she fight?
Joanne Calderwood? They stripped the champion and Eubanks is the runner up in the tournament, barring her failing kidneys.
I want to reiterate that I do think it is very very stupid and makes no sense as a loving MSG headliner, but UFC gonna UFC and stick it to Nate Diaz by putting a 4-3 fighter in the main event.

They should have left the fight in December alone and let Diaz main event it, then promote the hell out of Diaz. It would have sold OK. Now though, it'll still get a few buys because of Diaz, but they are just deliberately throwing away money.

I don't get it, are they tanking the card just to "prove" Diaz isn't a big draw to convince him to fight more often?

It's important to take supplements to give your steroid usage a cover.

The UFC is asking Chookagian to be ready in case something happens to 230. (Eubanks apparently has a tough time making 125) She probably deserves the fight more anyway, but Eubanks was runner up in TUF so whatever.
