Joe Rogan on Bill Burr's podcast today. His commentary is always fun of course, but he's pretty annoying.

Tickets sorted for UFC 205 :D

Expensive at 750e but fuck it, once in a life time thing

Have tickets to the Jets-Rams game on Sunday as well but I seriously doubt I'll be in any fit state to attend that one

thats probably for 2 up the back

It's going to break the gate record for MSG by a couple of mil.

Mid tier seats were going for $1000 I heard

No way would I pay that unless they were great seats. You're watching the screen most of the time if you're any distance back.

Doesn't seem to be a huge amount of hype about 205, or am I just imagining things?

It's been a very quiet month for the UFC with no events.
McGregor got over to New York a day or so ago so with the Fight Night card tomorrow night all the promotion is going to ramp up now.

Have my first rowing race in about 4 1/2 years tomorrow. Not an important one or anything and the real key point of the season isn't til next July. But I'm quite nervous about going back out and doing shit still.

Mid tier seats were going for around that. Pricing seemed inconsistent, heard of people who got $1100 upper tier tickets, not even platinum, and just last week there were a limited number of $600 lower tier tickets released. Even the attorney general said earlier in the year that buying tickets for an event in New York is a fixed game.

1 ticket and they're only half decent mid tear seats! Crazy money

I was thinking about selling it to a mate but if McGregor wins I know I'd be sick. Really stacked card right down to the fight pass prelims as well

Watching the 205 press conference on YouTube. Alvarez's trash talk is weak. Conor isn't even in the room and he's in his head.

Guy is fucking bricking it.

Think Alvarez is the first fighter that Conor's facing that I have a genuine dislike of. He's an awful annoying "little" shit.

His jokes were just atrocious and fell flat on their face.

its so foreign to so many of the fighters. They end up looking like mugs when it's something they just wish they never had to do

Did you notice Tyron standing up and videoing McGregir with the chair

This ^

He was saying Conor better apologise for what he said about my wife or something.

Minutes later he says to the press...his girlfriend's pregnant with twins and conor's not the father of either!

Doubly sad, especially because McGregor didn't react the tiniest bit, and the journalist just left him hanging.

...............SO CONOR YOU'RE HERE IN NEW YORK.....

I'm full well sure he wouldn't have said that if Conor apologised. But Conor was never gonna apologise

And he said Conor's having two kids and his missus Isn't having twins. As in Conor was doing the dirt
