Oh, get over yourself, Haggis. You're comparing a sport with an absurd amount of history and evolution to one that is a fucking spark in comparison.
Nowhere near is an exaggeration, okay. But while Spence and Crawford is an A+ fight, Khabib-Tony is THE fight. It's the single most-wanted and most-needed fight in the sport, which Spence-Crawford isn't. You never get a dominant champion taking on a dominant #1 contender and they combine for a 40+ fight win streak. Not since Fedor and Cro Cop 15 years ago has MMA signed a fight like this. Is Spence-Crawford the boxing hardcore's most anticipated fight in 15 years? No, it isn't. That's no disrespect to either of those guys - that's a massively high bar to clear, which is exactly why MMA hardcore's are so amped about this fight. I think maybe it is you who needs to be a little less sensitive. :thumbsup

Bruh we ain't talking about MayPac here. Khabib vs Tony may very well decide the current GOAT of perhaps they best MMA division we have seen. New sport? Yea. When you see those international numbers though.... Just hopefully they don't try to put McGregor vs Jorge at the top of it to take away from what's real.

Assuming Khabib wins, I’d want Gaethje to get the next shot.
Everyone with common sense should want exactly that. What better fight for the division? Khabib's career is almost over, let's end it with some meaningful fights. If he can manage to beat Tony and then the smarter version of Gaethje...I think we can call it as the GOAT career without anyone currently close to beating it.

Jones' resume probably still deeper/has longevity though, and he's undefeated as well.

I genuinely thought Irish folk adored Conor.

Then I moved to Ireland.

They are embarrassed by the man, well at least here in Waterford they are not fond of him.

Rule of thumb, don’t be a cunt, because the Irish remember EVERYTHING

My mate went over last year and said the same thing. Can only imagine it’s even worse now.

They are right to be embarrassed by him.

What?

Crawford is one of the fighters of his generation, as Spence is.

Take your UFC blinkers off for a second you fucking nugget.
i'm boxing fan more than mma but i think you are wrong here, khabib v tony is a genuinley massive fight while spence v crawford is just very very important.

Sounds about right.

Up until the Alvarez fight he was 70-30 with the irish public.

Since then hes become an embarrassment, and possibly a rapist. Only thenhardcore really still like him.

How you finding Waterford btw? Where u living?

Also looks like ET at 135
His face looks weird, but I think he looks ok otherwise. He seemed sharp, sprightly and still thick at the weigh in.

McGregor looked worse, way worse at 145.

His height and reach advantage vs Moraes looks good. Hes a real live underdog here for me.
