Congrats to Dustin on an awesome win.

Problem is he killed MMA going forward. He isn't marketable, well nobody is in MMA besides Connor and he killed off MMA in the states.

All that is left is a bunch of nobodies nobody can get behind to bring it to the next level.

Dana retires within the year, MMA dies in 2021, crazy shit.

It was a hell of a run and I am glad I was here in the beginning.

Thank you Dana!

Ngannou-Jones-Stipe is very interesting.

Whoever manages to beat the other two is an absolute legend and goes down as one of the greatest to ever do it.

This was Conors third fight since 2016, the UFC has been doing fine without him for years.

I remember the times MMA was dying because there were not going to be any stars after Ronda lost, GSP retired, Brock left, etc. Chill out chicken little. You've probably already seen the next UFC superstar fighting and dont even know it.

Akron OG!  Havent seen your pessimistic ass in some time good to see ya. 

 

I kinda agree tho. He has tons of money. He's conquered the game. But at this stage in the game, last night was bad for Conor. Its hard to keep selling him as the baddest man and biggest name in UFC taking these Ls like this. 

 

Sure he beat Dustin before, but hes been up and down too much lately.

Almost as pessimistic of an outlook as BruteDion has that OP ever pays the $500 he owes him.

Yup.

MMA was around before Conor. It will be around after him.

The fuck are you talking about! UFC is about fighting funny enough. Granted Connor put some casuals onto it but most are watching it for the skills in the cage. 

If you want the WWF promos then look no further than Chandlers post fight interview. He can fight as well - LW has never looked better than now, especially if khabib comes back. 

If Connor decides he wants to take it seriously again and not treat it like a payday, then he's a contender in the division

fwiw, I LOVED the Conor show this time around. He was funny, interesting, mostly respectful, and made me excited for the fight. If this is the guy we get for the rest of his career, I'll be delighted.

The Khabib build up went way too far and he paid the price.

He rejuvenated it for me. Was glorious watching Conor fall. To each his own.

And most importantly, stop calling the number two guy in every division the number 1 ranked guy (contender). It’s stupid as fuck and dilutes the product. Too many idiots saying some guys is “ranked number 1” when he’s not the champ.

Wiggs, I thought Connor seemed like he was in such a good mental place with this new humble, modest, at peace Connor. He really did put off a positive vibe. I guess this goes to show the mental/psychology game is not everything. The physical and MMA technical game matters too lol. Connor sat out too long, he might be in a good place now but he spent some prime years partying it up and not keeping up. He wasn't physically and technically prepared tonight.

UGPC (Under Ground Psychology Club) fails again.
