    Hmmmm, I'm not convinced. It would be great if that happened, but becoming a draw never usually works like that, if it did, Amanda Nunes would be a huge draw.

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.

    Khabib is already starting to gather a following, he's trending in that direction and once he beats the piss out of the casuals' hero, everyone will know him

    He was always going to fight him. Conor doesn't dodge fights, he just makes sure he gets paid. Reminds me of Tito back in the day, people said he ducked guys, nah he just made sure he was getting paid.

    I agree, not to mention he has a big country behind him and is still undefeated....plenty of room for growth.

    Money had nothing to do with Tito trying to avoid Chuck the first time

    That was literally the major factor in why Tito didn't want to fight him, wanted to get paid for fighting a friend. Chuck just didn't see them as friends and wanted the title.

    That was the excuse....you could see the fear in the eyes of Tito during that interview.....I just watched it a few weeks ago, Tito wanted nothing to do with Chuck.

    I will say though, the paper champ doesn't seem to duck guys, he tries very hard to get good matchups and he wants money but he has taken on a challenge that will end him

    As much as I favour Kabib you cant count Conor out of a fight at 155. Kabib is hittable and Conor will be training for a guy coming in on him, if Johnson can stun Kabib surely Conor has a more then just a punchers chance to do so.
