    Solid, wholesome post that has nothing to do with Conor or Khabib.

    Well done TS

    he's a moron.

    refusing interview with the "you need to interview the losers" wasnt just poor career management,

    it screams "i care most about the losers because normally i am one".

    Yeah as soon as he KO'd him his first reaction was to check on him. Like literally right after he hit the canvas. Was cool to see especially considering Buckley probably would have talked crap to his corpse for no reason.

    Which made me like him even more, considering how arrogant (read: insecure) a lot of other fighters in his place would be. Class act, and I'll be rooting for him (haha, and Buckley too, for that matter. They both seemed good dudes).

    Dana gave him a POTN bonus, so I doubt it.

    He sounded like some gangster in that post fight interview. The voice of his.

    This picture perfectly illustrates why Buckley can't take a shot, and why Di Chirico has never been KO'd in 18 fights. Look at the difference in head size.

    Buckley has a small cranium, way too small to be taking shots from middleweights.

    Read this on his Wiki:
    "Di Chirico considers Italian MMA fighters to be knights instead of gladiators for Italians. MMA fighters are gentlemen, committing to fight for a principle and for an idea, according to his philosophy"

    I like that attitude. Will keep my eye on this knight.
