No way the UFC does any of that.

Nevada is going to fine Khabib and give him a good talking to a commission hearing. That would be the extent of the punishment. Dana is gonna be mad but he will get over it. He doesn't run the show in that way anymore.

Quote

I'd be surprised if they didn't try and buyout Danis' contract from Bellator and tried to setup a fight with Khabib, too.

Might as well get mini Conor because Bellator will probably get cold on him after he got superkicked and eventually slept. Let him fight one of Khabib's relatives or one of the other 240 Dagestani fighters. If ACB goes under, they can get some of those dudes. Petr Yan is not from Dagestan but he trains there. I swear to god, Yan vs. Gallagher would be the funniest ethering in UFC history.

The UFC has no one to blame but themselves.  They not only enabled McGregors behavior, but marketed the shit out of it to make $.  Don’t act shocked when someone else decides to do it as well.

I think UFC has been flirting with disaster...  what Connor did in New York was disgusting but I think UFC still felt that there's a certain "entertainment" aspect to Connor where all the shit he does is a studio gangsta version of thuggery.  

Khabib and his boys don't seem fake to me.  It's not entertainment with them and tonight they showed it.

Sometimes you run across someone you shouldn’t have fucked with, and the McGregor camp learned that tonight.

Here's my prediction-

Going in I was surprised to see the Diaz fight announced as I thought he'd be next for Conor if he lost.

Given this show, Khabib gets fined and suspended for 6 months - a year. Ferguson-Mcgregor interim title. Winner against Khabib late 2019.

A guy I work with said that Connor McGregor was (minus expletives) "walking around like an Irish Lucky Day. Well now he just got shot by El Guapo's men."

Props for the 3 Amigos reference but yeah... its kinda on point.

There is a reason Chael turned down his act all the way down.

Ali Abdelaziz isn't exactly the straightest arrow, but if you're wanna get sociopolitical and call folks rats and terrorists, you better win the fight and proxy fights after it. Chael knew he wasn't about that life and Conor should know he ain't about that life. The streets ain't in him.

Chael hasn't really toned down his act but he made more comical.   Like nobody can listen to his promos setting up the Fedor fight and take this shit seriously.  

Now someone you might have to worry about is Colby Covington.  He doesn't look to be stopping on his shit and now doubling down with this Trump support gimmick.

That's toning it down. He's just a silly white dude and not silly, walking the line of white supremacist white dude which will get you fucked up bad. 

Did he say anything insulting about Rampage that could be construed as racist? Because that's a true litmus test. 

Colby Covington lies about having foursomes with pornstars so how can you take him seriously?

Well given tonight I look forward to see them main event the next 3 UFC Fight Night show. 

 

You guys out here acting like they're in any way comparable to McGregor. He got away with that shit because he makes the UFC a ton of money. These guys don't - so, to UFC, they're expendable.

I will never again make fun of WWE universe rules being absurd now that we see that all security everywhere are incapable of stopping one guy from pretend shooting when there are 20 of them in the ring with him.

UFC needs to follow WWE's example of indy guys as security and start hiring Bellator fighters as theirs.

And Teddy Long. Right now we could be watching a tag match between Khabib/Some Chechen dude and McGregor/Some guy named Dillon???

Can we bring it back to what we should be talking about?!?  Derrick Lewis and his amazing post fight interview!  That MFer could lose every fight from here on out and always be my favorite fighter

Depends on how he hits the blunt on JRE

Since I brought up Houston earlier, I can only imagine if Floyd was still managed by J Prince and Conor said the same wild shit he said on that long ass press tour. Once Conor got stopped by Floyd, the real ass kicking would begin. Bodies of Irish men and their compatriots strewn everywhere in the T-Mobile Arena. Conor wouldn't make it to the Khabib fight.

Wait, who will be the random super heavyweight tossed in at a moment's notice?  Who will be UFC's Kane or Sheamus?  Roy Nelson?
