Holy shit, I just went to pee and I missed the entire main event. :(
Not only did they keep the brawl, but they edited in better angles of the action than what was shown live. lol
Maybe every Russian and Muslim is buying the PPV and we don't know. It definitely won't do good numbers on NA and EU buys alone even if the Conor win did significantly raise Khabib's profile globally.
He is basing it off how many views Khabib's fights got on Youtube after they put them up last week
There will be a stage show at the Playstation booth
UFC president Dana White told ESPN on Thursday he will not offer the 40-year-old legend another bout in the Octagon, on the heels of two videos that were released of Penn fighting on the streets in Hawai'i.
The UFC was working on booking Penn (16-14-2) a fight against Nik Lentz before the end of the year, but those plans are now off, according to White.
"He won't fight again, that's it," White told ESPN. "That's a wrap. It's not even that this was the last straw. I didn't love him continuing to fight anyway, but with the relationship that he and I have -- he gets me on the phone, begging me for another fight. It's hard to turn him down.
"After what I saw in that video, BJ needs to, you know, he needs to focus on his personal life before he thinks about fighting."
He's got as much chance as most LWs. More, really. Don't know that he can stop the takedowns (probably not), but the dude is skilled as fuck and is a finisher. Khabib makes one mistake, Poirer will make him pay.
I have buddies that talked about wanting to buy the PPV but did not even know that it airs during the day (easter time).
