I hope what’s happened today doesn’t jeopardize the chances of Khabib x Mcgregor 2 later in the year.
No doubt it sells the fight even more and brings in more ppv, but there is a real nasty edge between the 2 camps now, that could result in more trouble than its worth. In last fight I think Khabib could have crushed Mcgregor jaw if ref hadn’t stepped in, but he may not let the ref stop him next time. I just think Conor has been going way too far with the insults, it used to be funny, he was so charismatic and entertaining, but something changed in him in the lead up to mayweather.
Am still hoping for the big triumphant comeback and him winning back the belt and a couple of defenses (especially giving Diaz a shot for title) before he retires unharmed. And it’s a shame he no longer seems to be the type of character who will be a UFC lifer like Bisping, Cormier who we will continue to see on tv for many years after their fighting days.
