    That poster at the bottom is stupid. Who thinks a bird fucks up a gorilla?

    That said, Khabib by UD.

    We are in an age where fans are more interested in sales than the actual prowess of fighting.

    I'm the last MMA fan on Sherdog.

    King Conor has saved the UFC once again. Clearly they should've charged a lot more so it could've been even higher!

    Agreed, but you are not the last one their is 6 1/2 of us left, If they were worried about the company staying in business so they could watch fights it would be one thing but what they are worried about has nothing to do with the fan. It should only be the concern of the UFC and it's business partners

    In this era of weight cuts and injuries, hoping for more than a round is looking waaaaaaaay ahead. Let’s start with both making it to the Octagon...

    Stupid. Fedor would knock Khabib's head into the crowd and say it was God's will.
