    Cowboy should have won that fight

    Ive been saying we should riot if Tony doesn’t get a title shot. Think about his last four fights, not to mention it’s 12 in a row and would be 16 if he didn’t break his arm vs Johnson.
    He whooped Dos Anjos at elevation in a 5 round fight at an insane pace in Mexico City and still wasn’t breathing hard. He’s kicked Lee’s (ass sub off his back), Pettis’ ass (corner stoppage), now Cerrone’s ass (dr stoppage). That’s 4 straight welterweights too btw. Wtf do they want Tony to do for a title shot? Fight DC? Shit. Tony’s been next up for years

    I think the reporter just just said the line about McGregor Vs Khabib because saying why the fuck isnt Khabib vs Ferguson been booked already is a little unprofessional.

    Dana secretly Hope's Poirer upsets Khabib, That way it's the best of both worlds and the decision is made for him. Big $ McGregor vs Khabib rematch, and the #1 contender Ferguson getting the title shot he deserves vs Porier.

    This dude said “Conor is a fight the fans want to see”. No dumbass the fans want to see Tony vs the winner of Khabib vs Dustin. At least I hope so, Conor could actually go out and earn a rematch if he wants one, can’t deny Tony’s 12 fight win streak against the competition he’s beaten.

      The same one as me where tony obliterated cowboys face causing a doctor stoppage. Which one did you watch?
      Or do you believe that one punch changed the entire beating that just occurred. He WON that fight fair and square.. he did nothing illegal that affected the outcome.
      Tony will be harder on himself for that punch than a DQ loss could ever be.
