9-0 light heavyweight Dominick Reyes just said on Ariel's show that he left his job at an IT firm for his UFC debut, debunking years of discourse on thi s forum

ufc presentation has been stale and bad through both good and bad periods, the shows would be more interesting if there was even a fraction of the fanfare of the last Bellator/RIZIN shows. those shows are more fun to watch even though the calibre of fighters throughout the card is of a way lower standard.

the traditional stripped down UFC presentation only feels really good when the actual fight is so big that it all it needs is bruce buffer to introduce it. I don't want a massive clown show but anything different would be better than 70% of every card feeling like Stupid fuckface 1 & 2 going at it

He says he's drastically changed his diet and training. Supposedly before he would hit the gym a couple times a week, now he says he's full time. He appears to have lost a lot of weight and has packed on more muscle.

He also says he just got a steroid shot in his back a couple weeks back and should be good.

I'm a big fan of Lewis and I don't think his fight will look like the last one no matter what happens.

it owns that you only have to get a work ethic in the heavyweight division once you're like top 5

It just occurred to me that we saw Conor jump over the octagon and try to fight Mark Goddard. for some reason I think something like that happened twice and his punishment for that was nothing

nothing really could have been done in that case, it was at a Bellator event in Ireland with no athletic commission and Bellator hired Mohegan tribe to regulate the event, so Conor was just a spectator.
Goddard didn't press any charges and Dublin police probably got some autographs. iirc Dana said they changed plans of booking a fight for him as punishment but that's Dana talking

it's been fun to see people in the leftist circles i am part of (although mostly peripherally) who don't normally watch fights make khabib a representative of high-ground morally righteous anger. they have so much to learn about the depravity of this fine sport

i saw some passing around a video of Conor using 'racial slurs' and self congratulating his loss. the vid is like, Conor calling Mayweather's off screen bodyguards (white dudes) juice head monkeys. like if you want to call him racist without being deceiving & misleading just use the footage from the same loving press tour a night earlier where he said he was "half black from the waist down"

Lid posted:

TMZ Sports quoted an anonymous cageside witness who claimed Danis was trash talking Nurmagomedov and drew a “death stare” by calling him a “f***ing Muslim rat”.
“We spoke with a fan who was sitting in spitting distance from Danis during the fight — and we’re told Danis was running his mouth throughout most of the fight,” the report said.
“There was a moment between the second and third rounds when Khabib shot a death stare right at Dillon, according to our witness who says it was obvious Khabib heard at least some of the insults. But, we’re told the final straw was the Muslim insult that Danis hurled toward the end of the fight.”

ive been to
McGregor vs. Brandao which was too good beginning to end
204 Bisping vs. Hendo 2 - weird 3am card with everyone sleeping through the fights, met Joe Silva at the airport hours later on no sleep
Mousasi vs. Hall 2 - kind of uneventful, Horiguchi's last UFC fight, Lobov somehow winning & Conor jumping the cage, one of Mousasi's last UFC fights

& a couple of Bellators including the one where Conor jumped in the fight and pushed Marc Goddard

basically all downhill from 1st event, still cant complain
