I don’t think anyone’s more excited about McGregor vs Cowboy than Khabib vs Ferguson. Even Conor knows what the real fight is.
Disagree, wholly. Didn't even know Khabib/Ferguson was happening. Knew about McGregor/Cowboy. Hell, even my dad told me about it. I think the McGregor fight will be a bigger thing.

It shouldn't be. Khabib v Tony is one of the best fights of all time.
I'm gonna laugh if it ends up a beat down either way, and it certainly could. It's conceivable that Khabib can immobilize ANYONE near his size with top pressure, even the crazy elbow throwing Tony. Also possible that Tony breaks Khabib with crazy pace and every technique under the sun. That's why it's so exciting!!

You are fucking mental. Name the last time someone who’s 28-0 fought someone who’s on an 11-fight win streak? Look at the names they’ve both beaten in their last few fights, too.

Conor McGregor
Cowboy
Poirier
Barboza
Pettis
Iaquinta
RDA
Michael Johnson

I’ve probably missed a couple, too. This fight must be in the top 3 greatest bookings of MMA history if you take into account the fighters’ records, the storyline of failed previous meetings, and their fight styles.

McGregor vs Cowboy is fun, but it doesn’t even compete with this fight regarding overall legacy and a historical moment in MMA.

Yeah, definitely. Also, even though it was close, he’s still the first person in MMA to take a round off Khabib. He got mauled, just like everyone else, but it was one of Khabib’s tougher fights. I think it might have gone all 5 rounds if Conor hadn’t been caught with that bomb of an overhand right. That definitely rattled him.
I think that McGregor only won a round because Khabib took it off and wanted to stand with him for a round just to prove a point.

It's debatable that McGregor even won that round.

Khabib landed the cleaner and harder shots. McGregor landed more but nothing impactful.

Aye I think he knew once he had gassed McGregor out through grappling he could stand with him

One thing Conor has never really demonstrated is power late into a fight

Off topic and got high for the first time in awhile. Just realized that Disney owns ESPN AND Fox. That's fucking crazy, bruh. UFC will have nowhere to go, and Disney can afford to put on their own competition between their sports network.

I don't keep up with MMA anymore, so this is someone that is a casual now. As I said, I don't think I've heard anyone say that Khabib/Ferguson are going to fight. McGregor/Cowboy, I think, will get more buzz.

It will sell more PPVs but it’s significance in MMA is ten times more relevant. KSI vs Logan made more money than Spence vs Porter, which would you say was the “bigger” fight? Depends on what you class as big and relevant I suppose.

Khabib vs Tony will gain more and more traction as time goes on. Your more casual fans will see how amped up the more hardcore bunch are and they will run with it. By the time it comes around it’s gonna be huge.

I feel like we’ve all spoken about it for centuries the wait has went on that long. I just pray they both make it to the fight.

Khabib Ferg has a very similar feel to Cro Cop Fedor back in the day in terms of the buzz around it

Didn't they also charge like $10 for it, though? I'm mainly talking about PPV buys and hype. I've not seen anyone talk about Khabib/Ferguson. Sounds a more similar comparison would be Spence vs Crawford or something.

Spence and Crawford were nowhere near the level of Khabib-Tony.

Yeah, I can imagine. Two fucking monsters who have been smashing people up in different ways finally coming together.
It's the fight of the year and one of the greatest fights that MMA has ever signed.

Too bad for me that the B side is one of my 4 or 5 most despised fighters. :lol:
