In Moscow, according to Dana.

Fuck it, they may as well go the full Drago and have it on December 25th.

he said he will fight the winner of Khabib Ferguson, which he thinks will be Khabib

but I cant see him going through a camp for Khabib considering his history

McGregor was on top form in Toronto last night.
Calling the Exec V.P. of Showtime Sports a weasel from point blank range was probably the highlight.

That or grabbing Mayweathers money bag.

I enjoyed when he said Floyd looked like a 12 year old break dancer, which his schoolbag, even though he cant read. You could see that really got at Floyd and his crew

@frankieboyle
Don't get me wrong, I think someone trying to beat possibly history's best defensive boxer purely by being a mad cunt is actually beautiful
summed it up beautifully

Just by being a mad cunt :-D

That's the secret though isn't it. It's how he got Aldo, he just spent months saying you're dead, you're dead, you're fuckin dead, you're dead, you're fuckin dead. Until Aldo was left saying...holy shit what if I am dead.

He got into Aldo's head to such agree that Aldo wanted to kill him the second he got into the octagon. Cant see it working with Floyd, and if it does I dont think the outcome will be the same

From Floyds chuckling away at some of the stuff, and how cheery he was after the Toronto interview when he was in the studio with the guys, you can see he's just enjoying it for what it is, selling a show

Aldo really was wound up to bits

So bored of people on twitter going out of their way to remind everyone they do not approve of Conor McGregor several times a day.

Shut the fuck up about it then. Some people don't approve of Big Brother and fuckin Intercourse Island or whatever it's called.

Well why not flip that, why should people who disapprove of the hateful cunt have to listen to everybody signing his praises. Have you never complained about anything you didn't like?

Fair point, but that's why I came here to gripe about it instead of giving snotty replies on twitter.

You can see why McGregor would be a divisive figure though surely?

I mean, the irish people like to have a moan about Bono too, and he divides opinion as well, but the reasons are a bit more nebulous there.

I like McGregor, but i wouldn't defend him to someone who didn't.

Agh, neither would I tbh.

Wasn't trying to spark another debate lads, just saw a really smug tweet that annoyed me this morning. The arena sold out immediately, obviously, and someone shared an article to that effect saying "A fool and his money, eh lads?"

Fair enough, if I was on Twitter I'd like to think I wouldn't complaining about him the whole time either same as I generally don't come in here to bitch about him.

I'm in a strange situation I dislike McGregor and would love to see him being shut up but mayweather's a serial woman beater so I can't support either of them but I'd still like to see the fight.

Suppose I'll just read the reports in the morning and see if it's worth downloading because I'm not putting money in either of their pockets

Jesus that was absolutely brutal from Jones. Was gutted for DC, poor lad didn't know what was going on at the end. Jones to move up now surely?

Can't imagine Woodley will be headlining any ppv events any time soon. Another awful spectacle.
