What are you on about? He's lost his last two fights to two people that are being discussed for a title shot

Cowboy is always someone's tune up to a big fight. He's a glorified mid carder.

I agree, he should pack it in. Last I heard he had one or two sound business investments so for the sake of his health, hang 'em up.

8 of his last 10 fights were fight night events, and he's lost 6 of those 10, he's just a bait bag I think. I'd love to see what money he's on, I'd say he'd fight for his hotel room. Harsh?

Gaethje is an animal. McGregor doesn't want to go anywhere near him as he knows he will end the hype once and for all.

Gaethje should wait it out and fight the winner of khabib vs Tony.

Too much money on the table against McGregor for him to do that.

Agreed

Btw - it’s been noted here in the past, but Cowboy is one of the biggest suckers in history.

He’s obv on ‘good’ money now.. but for a guy that has fought so many times for the company and done them a million favours at short notice, in reality his salary is embarrassing.

He goes no.4 after last night. McGregor is ahead of him.

Think Mcgregor has to win a fight to even be considered.

Gaethje is on a tear, three first round ko's in a row and a fan-friendly fighter.

Cowboy fights too much that's his biggest problem, trying to be a company man and he's really a punch bag for the higher ranked guys. He took a beating off Ferguson only 2 months ago and you can gaurantee he'll fight again before the end of the year.

He's not an elite fighter, he can't take himself seriously so don't know why anyone else would.

In the entirely subjective rankings compiled by a collection of people whose knowledge is questionable at best.

There is no 5min for an eye poke. Ref should have actually called the doctor in earlier.

You think Mcgregor wouldnt be able to pick Gaethje apart?


If that fight does happen I say its the first time we will see Gaethje use his wrestling

He'd have some success early on I reckon given he can take a punch and I believe justin will keep it standing.
How long he could hang with justin is what I'm unsure of.

It would be a great fight if it ever happened.

This is something else for connelly to be fair, that 1lb pereira was over
worked out to be a costly one but what a debut that was.
I'd imagine it'll be a long time before he sees a payday like this again.

Tristan Connelly: $125,900 ($10,000 to show, $10,000 win bonus, $2,400 from Pereira for missing weight, $100,000 Fight of the Night bonus, $3,500 fight week incentive pay)

Irrelevant yet almost every post here mentions him
