    He's in a tough spot. He had a shot and got embarrassed by RDA. That knockout by Nate was bad too. Cowboy is just not going to win the big ones regardless of 170, 155, 145.

    I'd like to see him in fights against Conor, Tony or Dustin. Khabib is just a terrible matchup for everyone (except for possibly a prepared LI, Lee and Tony).

    LOL at Cerrone slander. He been washed though, not a huge Perry fan but I'd like to see him KO Cowboy this weekend. After all the trash Cowboy has talked that would really humble him.

    How much money would that really make? Malignaggi isn’t exactly Floyd, Wilder, De La Hoya, Joshua, etc.

    No way it’s doing may-mac or Floyd v Manny numbers.

    It could sell, but Conor’s pull might be fading. His schtick is getting tired, especially when you factor in the back to back losses.

    Fighting someone like Paulie and potentially getting embarrassed seems like a bad move. This isn’t like losing to mayweather or khabib or even nate

    Especially considering if he doesn’t get a huge pay day. At this point it’s difficult to speculate exactly how much he’d stand to make so I won’t knock it yet but seems like a no right now

    It maybe was to you or I, yet it did nothing to extinguish his stardom or persona

    How does the DAZN payment model work? Is a guy like Canelo getting paid monthly based on his current contract? Assuming this could be a one fight deal wouldn't they just pay him a set amount out right considering DAZN makes money off subscribers and I'm thinking ads?

    Was looking forward to seeing how zombie handled Frankie’s pressure. Yair stepping in could potentially make this more exciting

    Hopefully he’s in shape

    Losing to Nat showed the blueprint for beating Conor. But he definitely bounced back in the rematch by going five rounds.

    But Khabib and Mayweather exploited his stamina or his grappling prowess.

    Agree n he didn’t have full camp as did Diaz. But if chad had full camp Connor would not have gotten off mat. N I’m a Connor fan!

    Not excited. Hope TJ puts the final nail in 125.

    Can we get TJ/Cruz 2?

    TJ versus everybody!

    I'd rather see Moraes get the shot but since hes not I dont know why they have Cruz fighting Lineker.

    I picked TJ to beat DJ. I'm picking TJ to beat Henry.

    TJ on fire right now and he's never looked better. Him losing the title was the best thing to happen to him. Top 5 P4P right now for sure. And that's coming from a huge Dom stan

    Was it?

    Thought considering how classy he was after losing, and agreeing to an immediate rematch...he came out looking like a bigger star.
