Comments Who do you think is a better fighter, and why?
Showing 25 comments.
Rafael is in dress shoes, Conor is in flat pumps. Are you retarded, stupid, or both?
Your momma would be a good start.
crisp?? You eat cookie crisp nerd?
thanks for clearing that up buTT head
McGregor's shoes are obviously making him taller too. A standoff with bare feet would probably have Rafael taller.
god these comments prove everything that is ruining the UFC today. McGregor fans are the Trump fans of the UFC.
your boy got wrecked. time to stick your dick in something else now.
choke, choke, choke. rear naked..... CHOKE
jose wanted to fight mcgregor is what he said and he wouldn't fight until he got the chance and then he got the chance and he turned it down like a little bittch that he is. Just go and fight holloway like a good little pumpkin that you are jose. conor mcgregor will most likely fight diaz. They should just give a shot to lawler and mcgregor can have that 170 belt
yep, and I don't even know who mcgregor is and never have seen him fight. Nice try punk ass. The brazilian went running, sound familar????????????????????? They will probably throw in khabib or ferguson but I am thinking diaz. Pettis is out of the question. This will be for the interim belt. It doesn't matter who the opponent is but they should just throw in robbie lawler to get beaten up for two minutes and then get ko'd. Easy money all fucing day.
I only didn't pick the other fights cause I've never watched Brunson, Garbrandt, or Mendes fight or at least I don't remember if I did
so you pick the obivous main events like mcgregor and jones to win but I pick the main card. so I am 3 and 0 and you are 1 and 0. Like I said boy, dos anjos goes down under two minutes. Its just going to be that crips you stupid little hillbilly. When I speak, you listen, when I write, you listen, when I look into your eyes, I take your soul. I am king. I am the one.
I can't argue with someone stupid enough to use an a random interview that you gave no link to when I give twenty sources of the betting lines and then you flag the comment
brunson, cody, and cerrone. 3 and 0 tonight. Just like every fucing night. the king says what the king wants to. I am king and the best ufc fight picker ever. what did I say about mcgregor whooping aldo in round one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what did I say about johnson whooping bader in round one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when I say something that specific, it will happen. dos anjos will lose under two minutes. crisp, on the fucing dot.
the source is that interview, I do not lie. stupid kid.
actually, it was the bookies favorite and just because some stupid litle person puts up on their does not make it factual. Look at the interview with mcgregor and conor is never wrong. stop wining and apologize, kiss my feet boy.
Also watch the actual fight when Bruce buffer is introducing them it says on the screen that Mendes is the underdog
Still looking for one that calls Mendes the favorite but I'm having a bit of trouble
And this one http://www.oddsshark.com/ufc/ufc-189-betting-mendes-vs-mcgregor-odds
And this one http://www.mmamania.com/2015/7/8/8914455/ufc-189-latest-vegas-odds-lines-betting-guide-mendes-vs-mcgregor-las-vegas-sportsbook-mma
Also this article http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2015/7/8/8913531/ufc-189-mcgregor-vs-mendes-betting-odds-leaning-towards-conor
First off cool it with the racist $hit that you wouldn't say to a black mans face cuz he'd kick your a$$. Second provide me with a legitmate source to back your dumb claim that Mendes was the favorite cuz I showed you 12 sources that all said McGregor was the favorite
you must be a nigger because no white(good) man could every say something as stupid and ignorant as you.
mcgregor will win in under two minutes you stupid retard
also, brunson will win, cerrone will win, cody will win. There you go you stupid little retard. The king lets you go but next time I will slay you with my blade from the fury deaths of hell to the frozen bits of fritzerland. If this was the old age, I would rip your fevele from horseback but this is the new age.
