He said himself right after the fight that he didn't want a title fight and his cardio is gooseberry fool :lol:

Three and a half weeks to train for a title fight vs Cormier :dread:

He went from something like 400k followers to 1.2 million on Instagram after the weekend (Khabib went from 5 million to 11 million).

Probably best to capitalise on the red panty money since DC doesn't plan to fight beyond his 40th birthday in half a year or so.

Although I assumed that fighters are automatically medically suspended for at least 6 weeks after a fight unless it's an Aldo Mcgregor 13 second long fight.

One of my local pubs was a nightmare a few weeks ago when the Joshua fight was on, never seen bit so busy on a Saturday night before. One one of my mates I was with who I know has zero interest in boxing basically started doing a tale of the tape based on nothing other than the two boxer's photos on the poster we were standing next to.


Same could be said of every big sporting event unfortunately.

For example, the World Cup. All of a sudden, everyone is an expert :fp:

To be honest that is an issue but I was more meaning that everyone thinks they're an expert in actually fighting. The amount of fights I've seen break out after big boxing matches is just retarded.


I still can't believe Jon Jones is allowed to fight again.

He then posted it in English.

Instagram translate not doing a perfect job, but sounds like Khabib threatening to not fight in the UFC again if his team mate doesn't get unfired.

Is it the UFC that releases the fight money? I thought it was Nevada MMA regulator holding on to it until the investigation concludes.



That would make it the 3rd best PPV of all time behind Pacquiao vs Mayweather and McGregor vs Mayweather.

I think in 12 years Mayweather has done 24 million PPV whilst in 3 years Conor has done 13 million.

Whether he truly believes he can beat his opponent or not, those numbers explain why he trash talks before a fight.

Who cares, the guy is a (rich) scumbag. If he cares oh so much he can hire his brother.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Fightworld is new to Netflix. It's a documentary series that explores fighting methods and cultures around the world.

It's got an episode on the Israeli martial art Krav Maga which has always intrigued me.

There's a really good vice documentary on YT about the recent bare knuckle boxing event in the US which is trying to compete with mmc/boxing

Was trying to remember what that fight quest show was called that you'd posted up before, did really enjoy the episodes of it I saw.

Will check out Fightworld too. Have always had the same impression about krav maga, seems to place an ott amount of its legitimaticy on the fact Israeli secret services teach it.

The bare knuckle fighting did seem pretty scumbaggy admittedly, even with the organisers. On airport wifi otherwise would link to the YT vid but it is worth a watch. Seems much less technical than boxing, they just throw like crazy until one goes down since you don't have the big gloves to hide behind and protect yourself with.
