Saw Khabib s video from yesterday, as much as he dissed Conor ("he fought one amauter boxing match in three years and lost") which is fucking hilarious, he seemed like he was up for a rematch.

Personally I’ve no interest in seeing the rematch. The first fight wasn’t particularly close and I’d much rather see Ferguson get a shot at khabib

i dont think a rematch will happen, realistically does conor REALLY want a rematch? i think he knows he cant beat khabib, stylistically it's like rock/paper/scissors with conor losing every time

ferguson/khabib would be amazing, and has to happen.

239 is going to be epic. really want holly to win.
also really excited to see sean o'malley fight again Cool Cool

I agree Khabib v Tony is the match, Khabib will be the bookies favourite but Fergie is such an unrelenting monster whose pace never drops off in 5 rounds he will run him close.

It would be absolutely hilarious if Holly caught Nunes with a headkick after Nunes being coronated as the WMMA GOAT.

Masvidal Askren really interesting, Ben can probably get him down though so should do well. But then I thought Mas would lose to Till.

Main event could be fun if Thiago says fuck it and comes out throwing bombs trying to knock him out.

BT sport taking the piss now, only joined to get UFC and now they've taken 239 to box office and want a £20 one off extra, fuck em I'm leaving, back to the bay of pirates.
(agree Askren the most interesting fight, Masvidal threatening him like an idiot "I can't wait to smash your face in" in the behind the scenes ufc vlog, idiot, Askren acts like a gentleman keeping a large distance and calling him boss or sir, Askren for the win but Masvidal punished Till and fairly easily beat the cowboy as his striking is fierce)

Luke deffo should hang them up. Still no defence getting caught the same ways, the extra weight hasn't helped him take a shot.

Wouldn't mind Ben retiring as well honestly, that was so brutal. He can go do a lot of things that don't include him getting KO'd, now the undefeated tag isn't there a title shot would take him forever. Love a fighter that is unapologetically one dimensional but I don't need to see him fight again.

Yadong getting past Perez easy peasy, that lad is exciting Cool

Bit of a self-aggrandising post, but got me BJJ Black Belt at the weekend
