    ahaha he was fighting RDA. its not his fault he pulled out, why shouldnt he still get payed? he's trained for a fight, Nate accepted the fight. if Nate didnt want or wasnt fit enough to fight then he shouldnt have taken it. Cowboy wouldve taken it.

    either way Conor wins

    I do believe Nate has taken fights, had a shitty performance, and said something along the lines of "I was just looking for a payday" before. Am I right?

    He took the fight to get cash but that doesn't mean that his detractors are not taking note of his short notice victories. They are not impressive and do not help make the case for his actual skill set.

    I do love me some Diaz Bros., but I'm also on Team Conor since his 1st UFC fight.

    I'm leaning Conor because he is making history & I want to see him do it, but may the best man win, I love both guys.

    Conor's bravado stems from the fact that he is finally in a country that freed it's self from the yoke of British oppression over 200 years ago. Now he can just go around feeling so bold and right in all his statements and actions. Lol

    “I honestly like Nick’s little brother,” McGregor said. “How can you not like him? He’s like a little cholo from the hood. But at the same time, he coaches kid’s jiu jitsu on a Sunday morning and goes on bike rides with the elderly. He makes gang signs with the right hand and balloon animals with the left hand.”

    One particular fan, presumably of Diaz or a resident of California, took exception with McGregor’s comments about Diaz and his neighborhood. The keyboard warrior sent a tweet at Conor McGregor’s Twitter account that could be deduced as a thinly veiled threat at the featherweight champion.


    Famed MMA GIF maker Zombie Prophetcalled the UFC’s attention to the tweets. From there the UFC took swift action, getting their security team involved and alerting McGregor’s security team. The UFC also reached out to Twitter to take action, and the user’s account has since been removed from the social media network.From a law enforcement perspective, the FBI is taking the threat seriously and investigating as well.
