Good to see that Dana, UFC and Conor are being called out like they should.

A little excerpt from one of those articles...

Quote
From what we've seen of Nurmagomedov, this is out of character for him. Still, he has to be held accountable for what he did. That said, can we assume Nurmagomedov will have to endure consequences that are more severe than what McGregor had to face for his bus attack? I'm not in law enforcement or a lawyer, but neither are most of the people chiming in with hot takes.

All 3 judges gave the 3rd round to Conor (9-10)

Yeah I saw that, but the judging is terrible in the UFC. Some of them look at the ground game as doing nothing. It's a bit of a joke.

Nah, McDipsheet won the third. Not much of anything happened that round but he probably won it since Khabib decided to stand and strike most of the round. Khabib was winning the other 2 and it was 10-9, 10-8, 9-10 and then he forced him to tap.

I did think at the time Conor did win the 3rd round.  Not sure if that was influenced by what the commentary team was saying though.

While the strikes didn't do a lot of damage he probably landed more. He also managed to defend the take down early and Khabib got one late in the round just before the end of the round if I remember correctly.

I remember looking at the strike count during that round and Conor was 22-12, so yeah, I can agree with Conor being given a round.

DC vs Derrick Lewis added as the main event to UFC 230.  Yikes, Lewis gone get smashed...

Poirier has pulled out of the Nate Diaz fight.

Agreed, DC has too much in his bag to take out Lewis.

Just wanted to say how good it was to see that the conversation about Khabib vs McGregor was mature and good-natured.

Khabib threatening to leave. He can do whatever he wants I'd think, the UFC couldn't care less. He could go to Bellator and they still wouldn't be a threat to the UFC

Some reactions to Khabib's comments.  Chuck Liddell makes some good points.
