    When will these guys learn that Connor is an act. The guy is promoting a fight and trying to sell PPV's. He is a promotional genius. He took a guy like Khabib that nobody wanted to see and sold the most PPV's in UFC history. Khabib reacting after the fight was just dumb. Nobody buys the fight after the fight.

    The most awesome thing about this tweet is not that the Dad is speaking of "spanking" his bear wrestling son
    it's that the Dad is wearing the belt!! LOL.

    Almost every UFC gets a short medical after the fight.
    Taking the butt whipping he did it would have been miracle to not face one.
    Saw they were targeting the Garden in NYC next year the day before St Patty's Day for his next fight.

    Oh weeee scanty money grubbing UFC, lol.....

    Not really. The bus attack was staged and never made any sense to begin with other than the manufacturing of a rivalry thus setting the stage for a more interesting fight........a higher grossing fight. It was classic WWE staged violence. Throwing things at a bus is not the most effective way of hurting someone if that was the intention, but it can be unpredictable. The fact anyone got hurt was an accident.

    The whole rivalry is absurd b/c Khabib is a quiet respectful fighter. He doesn't bad mouth or taunt anyone. Conner was juicing him to get him involved in the fight promotion, b/c lets face it, nobody wants to see Khabib fight. I laughed at the bus attack b/c it was so transparent.

    Khabib told UFC and the commission to keep the check. Good to see some guys aren’t all about the money.

    Screw that. He shouldn't let those greedy *******s have his money. That's all they care about.

    That's why they are confounded by his response to Conor's "promoting" the fight.

    I respect Dana in a lot of ways because he was the driving force in raising the profile of the UFC.

    That said, he's a total front runner and Khabib is not wrong in calling out White for his blind eye regarding McGregor's past issues.

    White is certainly to be blamed for promoting the fight using the bus footage which is tantamount to endorsing those actions.
