    Paulie Malignaggi. Now, I understand some of you want to live your MMA dreams vicariously through Conor McGregor, and Dana White. However, that is very short-sighted, and less lucrative for Conor McGregor.

    If the sparring videos Conor released were a true representation of what sparring with Paulie looked like, then this is the fight that makes sense.

    It will not do MayMac numbers, but that is not the point. The point will be for Conor to defeat Paulie, get some credibility and more fans from the boxing community, and bring both communities together for his UFC return.

    This is the fight that makes for Conor McGregor's continued success. Even if itself 250K to 500K, that is big time numbers for a boxing promoter who is also headlining the card.

    It makes sense on all fronts, even for Zuffa Boxing. Tony Ferguson has a sore elbow anyways, and he may be out for 6 to 12 months. Money waits for nobody. Neither should Conor.

    Tony Ferguson just had elbow surgery. He is out indefinitely, that could mean forever, or a few months.

    Mcgregor should do whats best for him and his family. He owes the spectators nothing. My only gripe is the fact that he’s holding up the LW division.

    I totally agree that cm will get back in the boxing ring for his next fight but it will not be against paulie, it will be against oscar. Oscar has a HUGE following and cm will make somewhere around $50 million which is wayyy more than a ufc fight or a fight with paulie. I been saying that its the smart business decision. Its a win win for conor. If he wins he will get another boxing payday vs someone else, if he loses it doesnt effect his mma brand what so ever. i find it hard to believe that he will take such a huge paycut fighting in the cage when there is $50 million on the table to fight oscar.

    Im telling you guys, dont be surprised when this fight happens.

    As much as I oppose the Diaz fight, at least fighting Diaz is an MMA fight ffs.

    He is not holding up anything. The UFC is holding up the division. As soon as they stripped him of the 145 title, the division moved on.

    The UFC is too pussy to pull the trigger, and that is not up to Conor.

    That is what everybody said about MayMac, and then the internet crashed on August 26/27, 2017. LOL

    The trolling is obvious here.
