I don't know about UFC but the crowds that boxing bring are often the scum of the earth.

And for all I take the piss out of McGregor's fans I am really looking forward to his bout, pretty much guaranteed entertainment.

I went to UFC in the UK a few years back, the crowd were fun, nothing too rowdy, obviously every event has its bad eggs. (it was munoz vs leben) every other person is an analysis expert due to "training" mma other than that it's fine. Just don't touch the pulsating veiny ones.

I need to check the odds but Diaz is going to win again isn't he? Got the superior reach, clearly better ground game and has had a full training camp this time. Although maybe McGregor will actually bother doing a bit of cardio in preparation this time so that he's not gassed by the second.

Conor is great entertainment and I'm a huge fan of him being a cocky arsehole.

However, smart money has to be on Nate. Conor is biting off more than he can chew. It's just a super bad match up for him. Nate is taller, heavier, better cardio (triathlons for fun), longer reach, has a ridiculous chin, is far better on the ground, won't be taking the fight on short notice and whilst his boxing doesn't look flashy, it's certainly effective.

I do want Conor to win, I just think he's got the odds heavily stacked against him.

I like Diaz too, but I think Conor winning helps to grow the sport further. Dude has natural charisma.

Hope Conor gets smashed to strawberry float. Make him defend his belt FFS.

Mixed feelings about GSP returning, kinda depends on what kind of fights he takes. Him and Fedor probably my GOATs though. :wub:

Sweet, good analyses. Might hold off on putting money down then, I'm hopeless at betting on ufc anyway - try to keep it boxing where I at least win more often than not.

I'm looking forward to GSP's return as well, he's the first fighter I can remember as I got some magazine years ago with him on the front cover.

That presser was some scripted mayhem!

All about boosting those PPV buys. Dana screaming "DON'T THROW THAT strawberry floating CAN". ahahaha.

Here's the clip (19:55), would seem scripted but I can't tell if it actually was.

Throwing big unopened cans of Monster energy drink. :slol:

Don't think it's fake since lawyers wouldn't sign off on dashing them across the hall and risk hitting someone in the face.

Do you guys think Nate has really played him here and gotten into his head? it seems like he has from that video. Maybe Conor is now on edge coming up to the brink of war.

It's pretty amusing seeing McGregor trying to wind up the absolute strawberry floating master of winding people up

I haven't bought into any of this gooseberry fool with McGregor and Diaz. Don't care for the fight at all, but would be great to see McGregor lose again. Johnson-Texeira could be good, reckon Johnson will get it (think he fights DC then..?)
