Hes hardly Richard Dawkins here lads. He posted a picture of Khabibs wife on Twitter and basically called her a towel head.

It actually isn’t. Islam isn’t a race. Discriminatory might be a better word to describe it before you start accusing someone of being racist.

Moving away from his Conor Trump tweet, I'd say Paulie is visibly shaking with anger after all the pics

I won't lie the second photo just of her, I genuinely thought mcgregor had cut in a photo of someone with a bath towel over their head.

It's like posting a picture of somebody in a purple suit and saying they look like Barney.

They should be insulted for how they treat women. Just not to sell tickets to a fight.

You should probably learn what racism is.
Islam isn't a race
Muslim isn't a race



Anyway, am I alone in not wanting to see the Khabib rematch yet?
He was too rusty the first time, I doubt much has changed, given the whiskey tour etc.

One or two tune up fights to sharpen the skills again and then have a go at Khabib again. Result may be the same, but he'll at least have a slightly better chance this time.

McGregor mocks Flyod Mayweather = racist
McGregor mocks Khabib = Islamophobe

Damn social justice warriors!

I don't think there is any tune up fight given that he wants to be the main event.
I'd also suspect that he has looked at that Khabib fight and looked at what he could do better and focus on it quite a bit.
That means nothing do unless he can do it in the Octagon.

She does look like a towel though.

It's a pretty sad picture in fairness.

Oh I fully expect him to attack more than the first fight.
He's still rusty though, so I don't see it going any better unless he pings the head off someone else first to get his timing etc back to where it was

He came into the Khabib fight with his hands down, walking forward with disregard for Khabib's abilities. He would approach a second fight completely differently, attacking more, but also respecting Khabib's ground game.

Am a big Conor fan but this pic of Khabib wife is going too far, not surprised he took it down. You cannot insult another’s fighters wife especially Muslim wife, it’s far worse than insulting his father. Conor needs to be more careful with this Muslim insulting, sure it’s funny but he could be bringing on lot more problems for his other than a bad beating from Khabib. It doesn’t look like he is gonna tone it down from the previous fight, if the rematch is announced.
I know you mean well, and is absolutely the right attitude.
But saying things like "especially Muslim women" and the insinuation that he might have bigger problems (as we all know what that means), is in itself kinda prejudice.

I think prejudice is the correct word. I dunno. But people pointing out that Islam isn't technically a race is a pretty weak arguement. We all know, what people are getting at.

But then on the other hand, it's not ok to discriminate women because of religion or other cultural reasons.

blah blah blah , it's far too complex and serious for this place lads. FFS
