Downloading it now. Yoel is a scary man. And a drugs cheat.

Did you see Romero right after the win, rush over to Rockhold to shout some gibberish at him and kiss him? WTF was that all about? Security should've stopped that, Rockhold clearly had no f*cking idea what was going on at that point. Or where he was, for that matter.

Yep imagine being knocked out by Romero and the wake up with him hugging and kissing you :oops:

You'd be confused for a while I think

Was disappointed his post-fight failed to mention "no for gay Jesus". Unquestionably, his finest hour.

Was hoping Rockhold would win, as smug and arrogant as he is, he's not a drugs cheat like Romero. That's the second time in 3 fights he's taken a few shots to the face when he's completely done as well.

I guess McGregor isn't taking White's threat to strip him of his title well.

He just attacked a bus at the UFC 223 press conference that Khabib and other fighters were on. Apparently Khabib was cut from the flying glass.

Just been catching up on all of this. Crazy!

I'd hazard a guess that's his UFC career finished.

nah, he'll get the winner of this fight

considering he hasn't fought in the UFC for what, 2 years give or take, he's still a BIG draw...

He is the UFC..

But judging from Dana Whites interview (he looks pissed) I wouldn't be surprised if he is axed.

wonder if this is right out of Vinny Mac's playbook ??

a story line ?? big apology, then a chair busted over MacGregor's head...followed by Dana White and MacGregor going at it in UFC 250 ??

Khabib and his crew cornered Artem in the hotel yesterday and Khabib slapped him round the side of the head. Bully tactics.

Right or wrong, as soon as that happened, something like this was going to be the response,

When this blows over, McGregor-Khabib will be a megafight. And to be honest, I'm wondering what I'm missing when I read of this viewpoint that Khabib wins that easily. I'm not particularly a fan of any fighter, I just judge them objectively. It seems quite apparent that there is a strong movement from Conor 'haters' to both disparage his skill set and prop up his opponents pre-fight. Once he defeats them, the previously all-time legends of the sport like Aldo, Diaz and Alvarez were 'always overrated' or the up-and-comers/present top guys at the time of fighting like Mendes/Poirier/Holloway weren't as good as made out.

Conor's striking and distance management is at a level far advanced than any other fighter at 145 and 155. He'll stop Khabib fairly easily, before the opportunity arises for the takedown. He would've finished Ferguson early too.

Three fights have been pulled from UFC 223 after the Conor McGregor incident. White must be livid.
