Can you buy the fight and steam via the BT Box Office app?
There doesn't seem to be any option to watch it legally without Sky.

Shambles...

Ya the move to ESPN changed things.
I think the 2M figure might include new subscriptions to ESPN that they attributed to McGregor.

This article actually says 1M. I clearly remember thinking at the time that it didn’t sell great.

I reckon Conor stops him early,
Dustin has improved but still get hit hard and often in every fight which is a nightmare if your fighting Conor,

I'm surprised Conor hasn't played any minds games with Dustin as much as Dustin says he has matured he is still way to emotional not to get draw into things with Conor and lose his composure ,

I noticed on one of the UFC build up videos they showed Dustin boarding the plane and he had a little paw Patrol key ring on his bag that he carries every where because his daughter gave it to him ,Being a father I though ah that's lovely but then when he was on the plane he took a little tiny blanket out of his bag a to basically snuggle it on the plane & explained it was his daughter first blanket ( shes 4 now) Now nothing wrong with that at all but it points that the guy is very very emotional ,

I don't think he could hold himself together in there if Conor winds him up over the previous loss,

As for the undercard, anyone else think Amanda Ribas is an absolute peach? She could rear naked choke me anyday.

John mentioned in that Ariel interview that Conor has been training orthodox. Is that a slip from John or is he playing some mind games?

We expecting Dustin or Conor to come into the Octagon heavier?

What we looking at? 165-168 for Conor?

I reckon Dustin will be heavier,
He's a much thicker man than Conor,
Hooker said Dustin weighed 182.9 the night of there fight he , not sure how he knows that are they weighed again ?

Predict Mcgregor to be quiet and respectful all the way through, interviews and weigh ins, so Dustin will be at ease.
Then, when they are facing off in the octagon about to fight, Mcgregor will do the same thing - karate pose and calling Dustin forward with his hand.
Dustin's head will be gone from there and Mcgregor will make short work of him

I was in the arena for the first fight @ UFC 178. The lead up was classic McGregor.

He had christened Dustin "Peahead" and it really got inside Poirier's head.

Different kettle of fish now. I'm picking Conor but I think this fight will be closer than people think.

If Conor can’t take Dustin out I expect it to be a very competitive fight for as long as it goes.

Could McGregor be quite tired come rds 4/5 should Dustin be still there fighting..?
