    Throwing a kick in a boxing match is a good way to get your half of the purse snatched.

    Eh the reported purse

    The millions he would make for choking out floyd or hitting a flying knee ko? That would be cool.

    He still might get ppv options. And well just imagine floyd ko'd his posse jumps in the ring and connor laughing his ass off

    Have you seen the size of Floyd's body guards? They could probably eat Conor whole.

    Edit:

    Here are a couple of them:

    Well the UFC is finally make the best fight available at Women's Featherweight. It only took a coward for a current champ and Cat Zingano being unavailable for them to do it.

    That's true. They'd be gassed and probably pretty hungry.

    Jesus Christ that feint kick was beautiful. Do you guys think Holm added that extra punch as a "fuck you" or was it the typical "hit 'em until they don't get up" thing?

    You're supposed to keep fighting until the ref stops.

    Also, Holm goes 100% until the ref is really clear about it. She was ready to murder Ronda.

    Nah, I'm more than familiar with Mayweather. I just like to take swipes at the striking skills of MMA fighters at every opportunity.

    It's real simple. She wasn't trying to be Mokujin to Cyborg.

    She has a short sighted and stupid management team. One that cost her the most financially lucrative fight of her career. The standard Reebok sponsorship money for champion, 50K IIRC, is probably more than her usual fight purse. What does Germaine make per fight? 40, 50k? She could of made ten times that even in defeat against Cyborg.

    What leads you to believe that?

    Edit: The money part, not the stupid management part. They're DEFINITELY stupid.

    Dana isn't playing around these days, stripping GDR with no seconds thoughts.

    In other news, Palhares is fighting in ten days again:

    Despite his hurting dudes, I do like watching him fight. Him ripping dudes' legs off is not a big deal to me.

    I agree, just something about a juiced up half insane maniac going in no fucks given. Its not very sportsmanlike but I pay to see him fight over Lucky Charms any day of the week.

    This should be an interesting fight and I think Sage takes it. I hope we see spin kicks galore. :lol:

    She works as a police officer. Most fighters, there are exceptions, don't work full-time jobs if they make a good living from fighting. This is especially prevalent in WMMA. For example, Marion Reneau is a school teacher.

    Gunna put money on Makdessi and really hope he wins. Something about Sage pisses me off, am gunna avoid the whole mess of UFC stanning white people and that kinda bullshit for a sec, but on paper this is an easy win for Sage, and I really cant tell you one guy where Sage has fought and am like "hmmm this shit can go either way" outside of Gall, whom I also consider untested garbage tier.
