Well that's honestly the first sports bet I feel happy to lose, can't believe that Khabib took him out of there so fast with a textbook Eddie Bravo move, the crying at the end I get, he lost his North Star.

Watched it a second time, that was not the Justin who did a clinic on El Cucuy or the guy who destroyed the cowboy and begged the ref to stop it it because he didn't want to hurt his friend, the eagle is the Goat but for whatever reason Justin didn't show up

I thought that too, watched the weigh in too and I agree that was well dodgy. Whole thing seemed off Puzzled

Kattar v Holloway was unreal. Jus a shame he’s proper cringey when he fights

Perhaps one of the best ever performances of all time. I was watching that in awe. Hats off to Kattar for hanging in there.

I dunno about cringe, he knew he it was the first show on ABC, if you watched any build up EVERYONE was just going on about how superior kattars boxing is. I think that got to Max and he was just proving the point he’s better. The way he was shouting to DC, whilst dodging punches was impressive enough, but then as soon as he looks back to kattar he immediately cracked him with that monster jab was so entertaining.

His throw down in the final 10 seconds of the lamas fight was the same kind of showmanship.

All aboard the blessed express.

Yeah it’s nothing new with him I know that, but I’m not a fan of it. Think he’ll get to go for the title next, hope it’s Ortega again by then.

Mad to think Poirier is going to take it?.

Conor is round one easy

Poirier was hit by a glancing Conor left hand and was out like a light. McGregor much stronger and bigger now so no chance it goes Dustin

Yeah I can't see past Conor. This weight looks perfect for him. Interested to see how he does in the later rounds though if it goes that far. He gassed out way too early in previous fights and i'm sure it's down to diet. He says he's been looking at the nutrition side of it. Nate vs Conor was basically vegetables vs meat in terms of diet and the stamina difference was so obvious. Maybe Conor's been eating his vegetables this time round. Looking forward to it.

Conor to win in the first 60 seconds worth a punt

Still think it won't end so soon, my head knows Conor is going to win but Dustin is tough and he's evolved so much I can't count him out. Though Dustin is going to be eating a lot of kicks.

What do we with think of Hooker vs Chandler?

Alot of hype around Chandler but I think Hooker is very dangerous and under appreciated.

Unless Hooker can Masvidal Chandler early on in this fight, I really think Mike is going to wrestle fuck, and possibly even tap out Hooker

It's a funny one, On paper you'd have to go with Chandler but let's be honest the level of competition at Beletor isn't the same and Hooker is dangerous.
Heart Hooker, head Chandler

Continuing my “I know fuck all about boxing and MMA” posts.

I always thought McGregor was overrated.
