Sonnen and Wandy will finally fight in June at Madison Square Garden :lol

 

This will be Bellator's second ever PPV :lol

 

Wandy hasn't fought since March 2013, they were supposed to fight in the UFC but Wandy ran away from drug testers and Sonnen failed 2 drug tests himself :lol

 

Yet for some reason, I can't wait for this one. Wandy may get himself DQ'd before the fight, I'm sure he'll try to get his hands on Chael in the build up

Triple post, sorry

 

Bader officially to Bellator

 

Wonderboy said he would like to face Gunnar down the line but right now he wants to fight Lawler or Condit after his minor knee surgery tomorrow. He shouldn't miss much time will be training soon

PPV? After Sonnen's dud of a performance this fight has lost significant steam, I mean as a hardcore fan I'm intrigued but not gonna order a ppv. If they re-booked the Fedor-Mitrione fight then maybe its ppv-worthy but even then I'm not too sure it would sell to well.

post #38464 of 39533
bellator already had a ppv before? I thought it was moved to spike tv after the main event was cancelled or something like that.

Bellator's only PPV was supposed to be Eddie vs Chandler, but Eddie pulled out and they made Rampage vs King Mo the headline

 

Bellator has a ton of young talent, they just need to showcase them now

Looks like they have officially re-booked the Fedor vs Mitrione fight on the Sonnen vs Wandy card

 

Also, Nate lashing out at Dana lol

Surprised they didn't wait til there next event to announce that Bellator MSG card. Glad they got it done with Fedor and Mittrione rebooked.

 

LOL at Nate, so the only fight he was offered was Alvarez?? He really is holding out for Conor III. Can't say I blame him with the amount of money he could make but just sucks to see him inactive so long and he may not even fight in 2017.

A September fight between Conor and Floyd makes much more sense than June

Offer nate someone else Dana. Ya clown
post #38470 of 39533
The Conor Floyd September talk has to be an effort by McGregor tomlretend hebis the face of boxing. Golovkin/Canelo has been discussed for September for over a year now, so if he can get that date it will be to compare numbers to a legit boxing match.

Mayweather already said he wants June, but McGregor is pushing for September. It's either a ploy to pretend he's bigger than boxing or to hold another division hostage.
post #38471 of 39533
The only fights I wanna see Nate in is vs khabib, Eddie or Pettis cuz he has issues all of em lol besides the trilogy w connor
post #38472 of 39533

Conor is the only fight for Nate. Nate playing it smart. He knows that HE'S the draw at 155 outside of conor. He has nothing to gain and everything to lose by fighting someone else. 

 

Finish the trilogy and let them retire gracefully.

I just don't see how Conor and Floyd fight in June

I figure they'd want much more time to promote it and Conor may want more time to spend with his new born before starting camp. September would make more sense at the earliest and recently Floyd usually fights in September anyway

Well, yes of course it does. It's almost April now. That's only 2 and some change of months of promotion. If that happens I'd be shocked. They would benefit greatly with more time

 

Keep in mind Conor's baby is due in May so the promotional aspect from his side could even be more limited

post #38477 of 39533
I might shoot somebody if I had to deal with all the promo for this bs fight 6 months out, I hope it happens in June.

The fight sells itself, and the sooner it's over the sooner Floyd can officially retire and Conor can get back to MMA. As annoying as his fans are, the dude is talented and the sport could really use him right now.

If Conor gets this Floyd fight, win or lose with that pay day he'll secure who knows when Conor will ever return to MMA

 

I've already accepted the fact that we may not see him back for long time

 

The more and more I see this developing, the more serious it's getting the more I feel like he's put his eggs into one basket. Was in denial that the fight would happen this year but damn... idk looks like it really could

If the fight happens.. I believe Conor will retire from fighting unless he gets a rematch with Floyd :lol

 

Conor probably makes more than he's made in the UFC.. and Floyd gets another monster payday. Win/Win for both parties.

 

I was in denial the fight would happen.. thought it was some kind of joke tbh..kinda like when I heard Trump was running for President

post #38480 of 39533
Thread Starter 

The Trump thing sums it up perfectly

 

I would say Conor fights at least one more time in MMA, win or lose against Floyd. I think he'll want to make one more huge pay day in MMA. I just think it'll be more likely he'll be taking his time until he gets the terms he wants and Dana will bend because the money will still be coming in by the boatload 

post #38481 of 39533
Yeah that's definitely possible, depends on the paycheck I'd assume.

Even if Conor got like 50 mil though I don't know if he walks away from MMA, unless he gets absolutely embarrassed by Floyd. I think his MMA price rises as long as he has a respectable showing. And he supposedly got paid like 15 mil to fight Nate the second time so he could probably make some serious money coming back.

I don't see him bowing out right as he's reaching his maximum earning potential, especially if the UFC offers 20+ mil for a fight. He's still young with alot left and he'd be leaving alot of money on the table. But who knows.

conor going into early retirement after the floyd fight
the guy is a business first and has zero to gain getting back in the cage
he's talked about the dangers of the sport and getting his and getting out

Wouldn't be surprised either way. I just think one more big pay day would be too good to pass up. He also could return after another long lay off, do things on his terms

This is what I mean..He gains nothing coming back tbh laugh.gif

Get in, get rich and get out was his plan.

With the money that can be made on all sides you'd be crazy to think it's not possible.

I know he said all that get in get out **** but if someone waves 25 mil in your face for a 3 month training camp + a 25 minute fight, we'll see what happens then. He's young and just reaching his prime, for the right money and the right matchup, my money would be on him fighting again.

How exactly is Nevada going to license 0-0 Conor to fight 49-0 Floyd?

NSAC willing to grant Conor McGregor boxing license to keep Floyd Mayweather fight in Las Vegas

“Would the Nevada State Athletic Commission consider a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor? Of course we would,” NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett told Los Angeles Times. “And we’d definitely want the fight to be in the fight capital of the world. What commission wouldn’t want the two biggest fighters in the world right now to fight in their state?”
