  • Poirier is also a stand up guy and all MMA fighters know BJJ. Kellerman should never talk about MMA ever again. It's plain to see he doesn't respect the sport enough to do any kind of research.

  • It’s not just that Khabib doesn’t like Conor. It’s the fact that 1.) Conor hasn’t earned a rematch with him. And 2.) Khabib gains nothing from it. 1st point: Conor’s last fight was against Cowboy Cerrone who was damaged goods by the time Conor got to him. That fight happened both way too late and way too soon. Lemme explain. It happened too late because Conor should’ve fought him when he was on his win streak and when he said he would over Twitter. And the reason I also say it was too late is because later that year, Cowboy goes on a losing streak and loses by stoppage each time, most notably against Gaethje in the first round. Not long after that, Conor decides to cherry pick Cowboy and fight him just 4 months later even though Dana himself said he was gonna Cowboy take a long break after the Gaethje fight. Not only that but the fight wasn’t even in the right weight class. It was at 170, which means it has no bearing on the lightweight division. 2nd point: Khabib already washed him and proved that the style matchup is simply something Conor can’t overcome. The only thing Khabib gains from fighting Conor again is another big pay day (and I guess to remove doubt for the idiots that actually think Conor wins a rematch). But he’s already rich. Money doesn’t motivate him, his legacy does. And beating Conor again doesn’t add to his legacy. It’s why he wants GSP if he gets passed Gaethje. So yea Stephen A, I think it’s those other two reasons moreso than the fact that he doesn’t like him and knows it’s eating Conor up. That’s just the cherry on top if anything lol.

  • Aaaye Stephen A is learning! Stuck to what he knows and pays respect to those who know more, Credit where its due. But they just called Dustin a BJJ guy xD I mean he knows bjj, cause he's an mma fighter but he's one of the best boxers I mma getting credit even from teddy atlas, Max needs to move with the times or at least show respect where its due, teddy atlas would be ashamed.
