    I think they could still sell Ferg V Mcgregor, the trash talk in the lead up, plus ferg has been rag dolled something mctapper isn't capable of doing to him.

    not saying he would beat usman. Usman wouod batter him but those two have had a few digs at each other recently and just seems liie usman might fancy it for the big pay day.

    He gets banged out and ragdolled enough by people in his own weight class never mind facing the guy in the class above.

    I would tend to think he would keep his options open.

    What are you arguing here? That Ferguson has only been beaten on the ground?
    Gaethje whooped him standing.

    Justin would send McTappers head to the moon, what are you arguing? Do you seriously think A Conor and ferguson fight wouldn't sell with the build up?

    No, you said the fight would sell because Ferguson has "only been rag-dolled", meaning that he lost his recent fights on the ground. That isn´t true because Justin tore him apart on the feet.
    And what does this have to do with how McGregor vs Gaethje would play out?

    And no, I did not say that A McGregor vs Ferguson fight would not sell. Conor can fight anyone and it will be an event. Ferguson´s trash talk would help.

    No. Mcgregor is an attention *****. He has plenty of money. He can't let go of the life that comes with being a professional sports star.

    Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor have some of the most delusional and unhinged fans I've ever seen within the sport, so that would be an excellent fight to make despite it being ultimately pointless in the grand scheme of things at lightweight. Tony moves about like he's made out of wood these days, so I don't really see him winning that one, even with his supposedly superior ground game.

    I think he'll give up on 155 if he loses and venture up to welterweight for the Nate Diaz fight. Nate will then pose and flex around the octagon and give Conor an easy decision win so he can retire from MMA and go harass the boxing world once again. Hilariously enough, the WBC president claimed earlier this year that Conor would only be one fight away from a title shot if he chose to go that route.

    Poirier is a different animal these days though,as he showed last time out...

    The Poirier vs. McGregor fight is the event of the week as far as I'm concerned. Maybe when this is all said and done, I'll make the umpteenth Tyson Fury thread in order to really break the monotony for you.

    Nah, he is not going anywhere. Win or lose he is still a draw and a spotlight magnet. Of course win or lose even a boxing match ( of no interest to me personally) with Paul would draw some serious money.
