I'm buying the McGregor card, but Dana is going to find out that the internet is undefeated

Any idea what this new magic bullet is that Dana has to keep folks from streaming?

Are you suggesting that people aren't still streaming the fights? Not being argumentative. I'm a dodo who's not understanding your question.

I would be beyond shocked if he figured out a way to stop streaming but his recent interviews have him sounding very confident in his ability to frick with people that do.

Dana said he has something in store for those streaming fights.

Dang I didn't know he came out with a statement like that. I'd be interested in know what he means as well.

I'm sure he/UFC has the money to invest in cyber/forensic investigations of IP addresses who stream illegally. Just a matter of how much effort he wants to put in it.

The illegal streams won't stop unless the ones caught are publicly penalized.

Didn't he say he was KO'ing Poirier in under a minute?

I listened to him last night. He said he knows he will never stop all of them but he at least wanted to catch a few to hear them cry. He said they talk tough in the internet but when they get caugh they cry. Then he threw out his that’s illegal meme line.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on mcgregor vs Poirier? I’m leaning mcgregor, Dustin gets hit a lot, he is tough but Conor has great power, especially early. Dustin is also kinda slow. He is definitely tough as shite though. Mcgregor seems to be re-energized and in a good place mentally. Anything can happen it’s mma and Dustin is good enough to beat anyone on any given night, but I think Conor can take him out in the 1st or 2nd like last time.

If Dustin fights like he did against Dan Hooker then he will lose within the first 2 rounds.

I've missed UFC fights over the last couple of months. Glad to see that they're back with a flurry.

What sucks though is that since the fight is on Fight Island, that means no Rogan on the call. He just makes a fight feel bigger, plus his commentary is pretty spot on.

I'll never forget the Khabib-Connor fight when the third guy in the booth (forgot who it was) was trying to wax poetic about Connor and said something to the effect of "I don't know why he's not doing this or that" and Rogan's immediate repaonse was: "Because he's getting his face punched in."

It was Dominic Cruz. He said that Conor, while eating some ground and pound, is trying to tire Khabib. He should be banned from the booth.

not his best moment but he is usually solid. you can say the same about joe every punch thrown someone is hurt. I also think cruz likes being the antagonist so he will take the opposite opinion of rogan just to argue sometimes.

It's the new felony streaming law that was passed in the big budget bill last month. Still got to catch them though and most are probably outside of the US.
