Co Main event was a great intro for Mike Chandler into the UFC. With Khabib "retired" I wouldn't be surprised if they do Poirier vs Chandler for the belt.

His checking of the leg kicks was non-existent. Looks too in that boxing mind-state, as though he's lost the fluidity between kicks and punches.


I'd love to know how much money he's made from Proper Twelve, sales have increased year on year so it must be a fair whack. It's actually quite a nice whiskey* despite the snobbery it gets from "connoisseurs".

I don't think Conor's ego would allow him to retire on a loss but unlike most UFC fighters, he's financially set for life and his side income is immense.

Got to be a Nate Diaz trilogy fight now.

It's a guaranteed huge payday and Nate's older than Conor and been inactive for years with the only fight being the BMF title fight presented by The Rock. 8-)

Conor's only 32 (but looks older) but his fighting style is not one that leads to longevity as that explosive speed is the first part of physical fitness to decline and his gas tank has been noted as a weakness for years.

I don't drink whiskey regularly and never drink it neat and have a very small sample range of whiskeys to compare it with. :shifty:

Yeah Chandler did bits - I had a little money on a Hooker + McGregor double so that went well :lol:

McGregor Diaz to bow out is probably a good shout actually - not a massively dangerous opponent but an easy angle to make it a huge money spinner.

I'm not a whiskey drinker so never tried it but even in random shops in Poland I see P12. The distribution network for a young brand must be insane so I imagine he's really raking it in.

That's fantastic news :D

Can't wait for the Usman fight this weekend, should be a war!

UFC 258 tonight but I'm way too tired to get up halfway through the night. Usman has to be the obvious favourite. I've watched his fights since he first appeared in The Ultimate Fighter. Hard to see who beats him.

I've still not even caught up on 258 but I'm so happy the boxing's back. That Warrington fight was an absolute shock - he was 1/50 on sky to win! That's the longest odds I've ever seen in a two horse race.

Looking forward to the Josh Kelly fight tonight, then Canelo's return next week - should be over in 3/4 rounds but it's a privilege to watch him at the height of his powers.

UFC 258 main event fight is 100% worth watching!

Curtis Blaydes vs Derrick Lewis is the kind of heavyweight fight I like to see but the anger of watching a fight at 5am that lasts 2 minutes isn't something I want to risk so will watch it on Sunday morning at a sensible hour.

I'm skipping tonight's but hyped for 259, beast card.

For anyone who likes a war in boxing, don't miss Berchelt - Valdez in the early hours. Should be a strawberry floating cracker

Such a stupid move to pull. Christ.

Povetkin shouldn't have been anywhere near the ring last night.

Just watching this fight via YouTube and Povetkin seems slow and laboured. I wonder if he came into the fight too heavy? Whyte was so much quicker.

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

He was hospitalised with COVID a few months ago mate, don't think he ever properly recovered. Wanted the big payday to retire on, which is fair enough.

Looking forward to the Frampton fight on Saturday (on C5!) although I suspect it won't be a classic. Will go the 12 I'd imagine.
