    Management? bahaha thought this dude was security for McGregor LOL, he doesn't get treated like management that's for sure... like the Mcgregor vs Mayweather press conference, he was just stood there on the side like security.

    There won't be an announcement any time soon. Probably never. Dana White has confirmed this in a roundabout way because of the ongoing *rape* investigation. November is going to go by and there still won't be any announcement. This video will age terribly and I'm glad to see many people are not falling for this media manipulation BS.

    Audie is a great communicator... this is great insight into more aspects of the game... I would imagine the majority of protesters are coattail riders but every so often you would get a true tallent advocate like these guys. Audie seems to be up there as one of the best

    Wow a 30 min interview about absolutely nothing, what a waste of time. I like Conor as a fighter, but I don't think he's really sorry for punching that old man he has a lot to make up for to win the Irish fans over and captivate the MMA world again.

    The announcement coming soon is about another announcement that will also be coming soon and Connor will finally be fighting and khabib would be retired living with bears in dagistan happily by that time

    Privilege at its pinnacle. Rape, sexual assault, women saying he fathered their child and nothing. No real penalties, he doesn't get cut, media doesnt even really address it. Must be nice.

    I have been a fan of MMA for years but this is no longer a real sport. Average fighters who can promote themselves have taken over. Conor McGregor was a decent fighter in featherweight but is way overrated. He got beat in all areas by Khabib after all his insults and disrespect . He showed how mentally weak he was during the fight. He has no heart and quits every time things get hard. He is now looking for an easy fight with a broken down Cerone who has lost his last 2 by TKO and 6 of his last 10. He even tried to cherry pick a 30 lb lighter figher (Edgar) who is way past his prime. If he ever gets back in the Octagon with a "real" fighter he will get smashed again.

    Every time i hear about Conor other than him doing an actual fight, I get less interested in the guy. At this point I really couldn't care less if he just stays away from the octagon and focuses on his crappy whiskey. And yes, 'talking about talking, meeting about meeting and announcing an announcement'. Who the f*ck cares.

    I understand that fighters’ persona is not who they are, if Conor takes the Cowboy fight over Gaethje it says a lot about his character and the UFC. Make the hard fights Dana.

    Oh f off... Nothing has been signed or completed, yet Conor and his team are still talking out of their a**. Fight Justin Gaethje or fight no one.

  • Nick King Televised

    Cerrone is a horrible match up for Conor. He's as big as Nate, except stronger with knockout power in his hands and legs. He also has top notch wrestling and could pound Conor out on the ground. Cerrone is the last person Conor should fight. Gaethje or Diaz would be a better match up, but I stick by my Holloway pick.

  • Nick King Televised

    He should got back to 145 and do the Holloway rematch. Then if he wins, fight the Winner of Khabib vs Ferguson. That will mean he'll be the Champ-Champ Champ Champ, having done it twice. It's the only thing that makes since. Plus Conor's gas looked better at 145 and Holloway will stand with him it's a good match up.
