Unfortunately that fight will never be. Tony's now on a 2 fight loosing streak, so lost his concensus # 2 spot as the best lightweight in the world. With Conor loosing as well, it's now GSP or bust for Mr. Dagestan!khabib needa come outta retirement and fight tony ferguson. i wanna know which discipline is better; wrestling or bjj?? im thinkin the former.
One of the things that appealed to me about MMA originally was the class and sportsmanship displayed by the fighters. There was a lot of mutual respect. Fedor was one of the last guys that I remember acting like that. Like you said, it almost has an air of WWE theatrics and trashiness about it now.I watched all the fights, but the sport turned circus (fighters simulating friction outside the octagon), equal to football.
The first person to KO Jake Paul is going to become a national hero.
The presser where the dude face palmed him was hilarious.It could well happen in his next fight. Depends on how much he actually believes his own bullshit and how much of it is schtick, if he actually think he's a legitimate boxer he may well bite off more than he can chew next time.
He said in an interview that he views himself as an “elite” level boxer...despite only fighting people who don’t actually train in the sport of boxing.
I don't see him taking a fight with anyone competent. That fight against Askren shouldn't have been stopped either.Right, but the question is if he actually believes it or if he's just trying to hype himself. If it's schtick then he'll be careful not to take a fight with an actual boxer or even an MMA fighter with a modicum of striking ability.
