There would be no hand-waving that away.

This is NOT "situation normal" and it's not "okay", and it's not "snowflake" to to say those involved should be dealt with severely.

As for those saying that Conor talked shit before the fight - true, but not as much as usual, and really that's normal in the fight game going back a hundred years in history. What is also normal is to win with honor and at least show some pretense of respect. Nothing about that was normal or excusable or okay.
Piss off with that shit. How can you be so dim ? Seriously ?
Guess what in certain parts of the world you can't keep talking shit and except nothing in return. Not everywhere is like Australia where carefree sledging seems the national past time.

You anglos keep running your mouths off and then act surprised when you get the payback. Funny stuff.
And there was me thinking that sports organisations demanded certain standards
Integrity in sports in the US, no less ? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Do you also believe in Santa and the Easter bunny ?

UFC is about $$$, that's it. Nothing else.
That's just ignorance speaking.

Non of it is excusable in any way, not in any sport, not in the fight game, and not because Conor said "mean words" in the prefight psychological battle.

I was a Khabib fan. My previous posts prove that. And he and his team proved themselves to be utter dickheads, not champions worthy of a vaunted legacy. More is the pity for all involved. Everyone lost here in one way or the other. Conor, Khabib, Khabib's Team, the Irish. Dagestan, Muslims. the UFC, MMA. Whatever angle or spin you want put on it they all lost something.

Same. He's a fairly divisive figure here, I watched the fight in a mates house in Dublin and I think about 50% of people in the room were happy to see him lose. "The Irish" didn't lose anything.

The UFC doesn't aim to be a clown show. And if you don't know that, you don't know UFC. They've fought tooth and nail for every inch of respectability they can get since day #1. This sets them back big time. Yes a Conor Khabib rematch might bring in big dollars as a novelty one-off, mean time every other UFC fighter and event suffers big time as casual observers who were just beginning to pay attention turn off in droves. Forest for the trees.

+1

The usual suspects just can't deal with the fact that the majority of Irish people loathe the crass, classless, loudmouth scumbag.

Not good that Irish fans are acting the maggot on the world stage.

Even our football fans have a good reputation for fun.
This isn’t a good look, we have never had any beef with Russia or any of its federations.

Newsflash, in som parts of the world words are important. Some parts of the world are "old school" like that. I'm not surprised its a new concept for an Aussie though, as you don't really have a history.

Whether you personally like him or not is irrelevant. The Irish lost a world champion.

Everyone else lost too as the haters calling MMA a scumbag "sport" for sociopathic knuckledraggers were proved right in the world stage.

Everyone lost here. Except MMA haters. They're gloating and rightly so.

That's so dumb it's not even worth a reply bar to higjlight out how dumb it is. I'll grant you everything you said. I though Khabib and his team were wiser, more honorable and respectful in victory, less volatile self righteous pricks of human beings. Granted. You're right. I was wrong.

And so...? Nothing to see here, all is explained? Get the fvck out with that shit.

He acted like a fvckwit, proved the haters right, deserves to be banned, fined and stripped of the title. The "reasons" you give are irrelevant. Maybe true but not excuses or justifications.

If he wants to fight on the streets of Dagestan for medieval honour he should fůck off and do that. If he wants to fight on the world stage under a sanctioned athletic commission for a world title then he needs to wake up.

Mick stating McGregor is a pillock would have been fine. What you wrote after is not. Leave out your racist undertones.
Making an idiot of yourself about the boxing layoffs is one thing. Accusing me of racism to deflect from your own stupidity is quite another.

While Khabib attacks McGregor's jujitsu trainer. McGregor definitely throws the first punch (00:24) after the fight before being attacked by Khabib's crew.

I feel sorry for McGregor's parents because they actually are lovely people.
As for Conor though, he really has a huge turd on his plate after making enemies with Dagestanis and the Kinehans. Plonker...

Conor with a gang storm into a stadium, attack a bus including throwing dolly's into the window resulting in 2 people getting injured, one with glass in his eye. The UFCs response to this was to give Conor a title shot. There is nothing respectable about this.

All the UFC has done is shown they will pretty much turn a blind eye as long as you can bring the dollars. By following that line they enabled yesterday to happen

Remember the pub brawl in Dublin a few months ago? He made enemies with the wrong lads and had to send a suitcase of cash over to Dubai to say sorry. :uhoh:

He's a Grade A plonker and is really on the road to a nasty end if he keeps up the smack talk. It's not Goodfellas.

Here if you wanna know why I have no love for Dags read this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lekianoba

A principle of western society is people are judged as individuals.

I judge Nurmagomedov and McGregor as Connor and Khabib, not as Irish and Dagestan.
Yes, but allow me to hold a rifle while giving them the benefit of the doubt :D
love how guy on the left casually joins the party in with his pistol.
