To steal a line from Don King- "Only in America." If an American had pulled this clown show in ANY country they'd be on some type of legal hold and would be PNG'd once they left. Khabib needs to be PNG'd on American soil and his manager should be added to the No Fly List. As for McGregor, he needs to go home for a while, eat his Lucky Charms and take some time off from the US circuit.

The UFC really needs this line at the start of its matches.

The second reason is it was a one sided beat down. McGregor was never really a factor at all in that fight. At least with the first Diaz fight, he was holding his own until he gassed. Khabib just imposed his will on Conor right until the end. A rematch would just be more of the same.

Meh. Dana White has clearly stated that the new UFC management is all about PPV numbers. That's why they put up with McGregor's antocs and why they released his check while not releasing Khabib's. The only thing that might be a factor is that McGregor simply was so outclassed after saying that he was in the shape of his life.

None of the other stuff matters in a suitable neutral venue prepared for such things as you mentioned..

I'd say that's exactly why they'd have a rematch, the hype is so high White would barely have to promote it.

You know your fight is a mess when even Mike Tyson calls it crazy.

According to the interview it is the State Athletic Commission that decides if the fighters get paid or not, and they release the payouts, or don't.....
