  1. Why are people so obsessed with hating Conor? I know he’s an ass but the amount of satisfaction these people feel is kinda embarrassing. Of course there is some satisfaction but why is everyone celebrating this so much lmao

  2. CONOR MCGREGOR WAS THE CHALLENGER……. he's not obligated to get a rematch FIRST OFF. Secondly, Conor got destroyed throughout the whole fight. Pockets of the 3rd was his only bit of resistance to the pain brought on him by Khabib. Conor no longer has any belts to attempt to dictate what goes on. Conor goes to the back of the line like everyone else or bare minimum, take on another contender (Ferguson, Kevin Lee) to earn his 2nd title shot, but it's disgraceful he thinks people "OWE" him a rematch as A CHALLENGER. If UFC forces Khabib to fight Conor again even though he doesn't deserve it, i'm gonna boycott ever watching this organization again. It's already unfair watching them attempt to rail road Khabib with conditional punishment rather than with a standard code of conduct that should have included McGregor MANY TIMES OVER.

  3. >>>>>REMATCH IS OUT THE QUESTION<<<<<< Conor was in there fighting for his life and was left shattered on the canvas. We've never seen Conor fight for his life like we seen on Saturday, rules mean't nothing to him. Conor tried to illegally knee Khabib. Conor was illegally grabbing Khabib's shorts. Conor was illegally grabbing the cage with his hands and toes, all of that just to survive. So if a rematch WERE to happen minus all those violations, do you think it's gonna go ANY different? Unless Conor fans are ready to see him retire, it would BE BEST to put a tune up in front of him. I mean how could you even sell a rematch after being destroyed like that?

  4. I have been saying that Khabib beats Conor, Tony beats Khabib, and Conor beats Tony. Those three need to fight each other

  5. Can everyone please stop pretending as if the ending to 229 wasn't the greatest thing ever. Perfect ending to the way the UFC promoted it.

  6. Not quite the war Brendan predicted…there's levels to this game.

  7. Where was the back and forth fight that you were expecting, Schaub? Just like with the Mayweatger fight, you overrated Conor again and it bit you yet again in your stupid ass.

  8. Really bummed for Conor. Terrible performance by him. Timing was off, footwork non existent, laboured punches. I hope he doesn't get a rematch. It will go the same or worse. He needs to get his confidence back and get at least another fight in.

  9. Wait what? Pretty sure Matt Barnes did put that basketball in Kobe’s face bro

  10. McTapper is the combat sports piñata.
    Who would you like to see whoop McTappi's a&^ next? Ferguson? GSP? Diaz again? Floyd again? Paulie? Holloway? Khabib again?

  11. I just feel that Conor has gotten away with so much poor sportsmanship and ridiculous antics that its way beyond anything excusable at this point. Money and Favouritism prevails once again! Conor has been acting like the quintessential preck for years and everyone stands behind him. I don’t know their personal lives, but Conor has a lot more coming his way and needs to get his ass kicked again! NO REMATCH FOR CONNOR. They need to make Tony fight Connor as Tony would DESTROY MCGREGOR easily!

  12. Brendan u…..Dan and Kenny are the absolute best at predicting fights 😂😂😂
