    I'm sorry since when do you get to determine what should matter and what shouldn't? It all matters. At the end of the day this is a profession.. certainly the aspect of skill and status in the world being the top martial artist is huge but at the end of the day that $$$ is what a profession is all about. These guys dont fight for free for a reason.. Its about MONEY. Its a business. In a very real sense if you make the most money you are in a sense the most successful. There are different ways to measure success. As a martial artist surely Khabib has taken the lead.. as a businessman and money maker Conor's got him by a mile.

    im trying to help you out bro, and help you understand why it doesn’t matter shit how badly he did on Saturday or how much ferguson deserves it...the next will be the money fight

    This is prize fighting, not martial arts, and the winner is the fighter with the biggest prize

    Hopefully now you will stop posting silly, uninformed, irrelevant nonsense nobody wants to read.

    Why do you also say “we” in your post? The rest of the forum will be highly offended to be affiliated with a dummie

    You're trying to help me out? You couldn't help yourself out with a lifetime fucking mensa membership. How about you start with number one and stop bumping your head.

    Oh for the love of god, shut the fuck up and tell someone who cares. Keep talking about mcgregor's money, I'm sure it's greatly improving your life.

    Anyone know the PPV numbers? Did it end up beating the previous records or not?

    Intentional homicides (per 100,000 people) :
    IReland - 1
    Dagestan 2,1
    Canada -2

    Styles probably played a bigger role, but if either of these guys is a "gangster", it's definitely Khabib.

    I gave you a like but this was no big deal compared to the post weigh in bus fiasco. Khabib might face a suspension but stripping him will only serve to devalue the title. Conor and Ferguson and Nate and Poirier can fight to determine who the next challenger is.

    Dana says they have way over 2 million PPV buys.

    That seriously surprises me. This fight didn't have nearly the kindof leadup to it that the Aldo fight did. Now that Khabib has stolen the spotlight I wonder how this is going to play out. This wasn't anything serious like smoking weed and the rematch will set new records for the gate and PPV buys so I'm guessing 6 months, year tops.

    Sorry bro, your point was, in a way valid, I had just seen countless, countless posts about, "it doesnt matter because mcgregor got so much money" obviously he made a shitload but I'm sure that is not what mcgregor is thinking about right now. And the fight between them was personal. But my bad, your point was valid in the way your worded it....

    Dana insisted it did well over 2 million. I think the rematch will happen in a year and set records as well.
