    How would Gus beat JJ if they rematch, or does JJ destroy him?

    Do you shave upwards for a closer shave but worse skin and more risk of shaving rash or downwards for the better skin and no risk of shaving rash but end up with next morning stubble?

    If a train is going 60 mph and it has to travel 237 miles from Boston to wells, and another train leaves Boston and it's going 55 mph and it's traveling to New Jersey, 243 miles away, but has a ten minute layoff in the middle of the trip, which train gets there first.

    It's common knowledge Stephen Seagal taught Anderson his front kick. Given his wide array of techniques and aikido credentials, is it fair to assume he beats a prime Yoel Romero?

    After beating Ferguson, what would Khabib have to do in order to become the LW goat?

    Which of your styles (Boxing, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, Kung Fu and Krav Maga) would you recommend most for a street fight or self defense? *where no weapons are present*(hopefully).
    Don't give me that "just run away" crap. This is "stand your ground" rules.

    All we got was seagulls chirping in the background

    Interested to know what Ant thinks about the current PFL set up if he has been following it.
    With the 2 fights to get ranked, followed by a one night tournament style 1/4's and 1/2's and then the big dog New Years Eve show with all the title fights in one night in NY
    Also did he think Andre Harrison deserved to get the nod over Popo, persoanlly I thought he took the first round (but I'm biased)

    Also, who was the governor of Campania during the Herculonious period?
    do maggots get drunk when they bury alcoholics?
    And who killed Tommy's Boy?

    A win over Diaz (not a given) for McGregor would propel him right back in the spotlight for basically any matchup he wants in the UFC. Do you think this would be the next fight to make for the Irish star and should he win, who would you match him up with next?

    Khabib and his team are the ones to blame for the brawl, no question.

    Dudes got hurt by words and made the sport look even more unprofessional than it already does.

    Only words huh? Shows you don't care much about upholding your integrity if you only see them as words. Talk shit, get hit.
    I like what Firas Zahabi said " If everything is fair game before( talking shit of Family, religion, politics, culture) then everything is fair game after"

    Khabib was wrong no doubt. Unprofessional? Yes it was. But as a man, being the protector and upholder of his family, what he did was understandable.

    So was Conor. He is to be blamed too. If your telling me the reason was to sell tickets then this is bullshit. Must the sport of mma stoop so low to sell fights by blemishing the integrity and honor of their fighters?
