Any MMA/UFC fans?

I'm very much looking forward to UFC 200. I think it has one of the best cards ever.

I'll be rooting for Jones, Lesnar, Aldo, Valasquez and Tate.

On a different note: Is there any significant fan following for MMA here? I would love to watch UFC 200 in a sports bar with fellow followers of the sport. (I guess the timings are a bit uncooperative though.)

Re: Any MMA/UFC fans?

I am not sure if lesnar has a chance, Hunt has such a compact frame pretty hard to take him down. But I agree 200 card looks solid will break payper view records for sure

Re: Any MMA/UFC fans?

I agree. Hunt is more experienced, coming off victories and is incredibly durable (the bigfoot silva fight! yikes).
But he is boring and can't promote fights. I guess I'm hoping Lesnar gets the win, eventually takes a couple of more fights and gets the belt. The heavyweight division easily has the most boring promoters right now.

What a shame. Jon Jones failed a drug test. He is out of the card, I hope they bring in Gustafsson.

Same!

I think UFC 205 has the greatest card thus far. Everyone single fight is epic.

There is no way he will retire from MMA. His girlfriend is pregnant so he might take time off at most.

It will be fun to watch them in lightweight next. I think it will break all records.

Re: Any MMA/UFC fans?

The retire claim is to legally be able to fight outside UFC, then he will come back. Like many that "Retired" and are now fighting in Japan or back in the UFC. Also makes it possible to renegotiate contracts.

Re: Any MMA/UFC fans?

MMA fan late to the party here ...

That retirement talk by Conor is just a leverage/media play, same as his boxing license. He can't legally fight outside the UFC if he's under contract with them. There's a clause that prevents the fighters from competing in any other combat sport, including boxing. That's not to say that some organization in Japan might not care and sign him anyway if it were an option, but it won't be. As far as renegotiating contracts, that can be done at any time.

Re: Any MMA/UFC fans?

Indeed, I am quite looking forward to that. It looks like both of them will have 100 mil + paydays. As for selling the fight though, so far it has been all McGregor. Mayweather got completely outclassed. In ring though, I'm expecting it to be quite the opposite.
