What up Freemoney check out Teemu's stylish celebrity gf, sweg overload. Id go for the MGTOW strategy though .. gfs ( sperm / natural steroids robbers ) = losses in the cage. Unless your super alpha trad like the Dag guys. Looks to me like Taisumov and Zubair may be indulging in more western style cuisine and customs .. they seemed low testosterone a.f tonight. If Murphys wrastling was 10 to 15% better he would have won out

He never fights at light weight again. Mark. My. Words.
The idea of having to face khabib to get the lightweight title. Terrifies. And confuses him.
@cartell I meant in regards to his lightweight career not his philanthropy efforts.

Truly, what a class act. I genuinely believe that guys heart is in the right place.

Dudes a stud. He just ran into a one of a kind savage in Khabib. 


Crazy how much I was on team Conor when they fought..I’d love to see them run it back. 

I’m not normally a turncoat kinda guy but looking how McCrackhead turned out, then seeing where guys like Dustin are at mentally...pretty easy jumps for me.

"Khabib will probably get Dustins neck or win a dec but Dustin wont just throw single shots at Khabib like MJ, Al, or MG... Dustin will string his combos in a way that Khabib has never seen before and has a good chance at hurting or maybe getting the KO from an angle that Khabib doesnt see coming

i got Khabib for the win but I got a feeling that Dustin is gonna fake the left and come up with right to hit Khabib clean and either he takes it like a champ or he goes down and the USA has a new champ"

WOW HOLY **** *** guys I said this on the wednesday before the fight and wow it was actually on point... Khabib got Dustins neck and Dustin clipped Khabib in the second round with that fake switch in to the right hand holy **** we've never seen Khabib that hurt but damn he really took it like the champ that he is
Also Dustin shouldnt retire imo hes still world class top 3 at LW and top 15 in the P4P with his win over Holloway he only lost to Khabib (future goat?? maybe) but he won hearts and minds i legit cried up a bit when he said "When times are good be grateful, and when times like this be graceful" #TreadLeftInTheTires

You lot should check this dudes video hes got a nice breakdown of the fight shows how Dustin was able to land that punch

if Dustin stays id love him vs Conor Cowboy Felder Al/Hooker winner and hey mma is crazy he should at least wait for Khabib and Tony to happen and if Tony gets it done (a very real posibility so i cap it at 50/50) Dustin is still in position for a fresh matchup against Tony

I think also that Dustin Poirier has every chance to show himself in the future. That why he should not give in to despondency. He is a very good fighter and a man with a golden heart. The world of MMA needs people like him. Because he is the embodiment of the high standard end respect. I say this sincerely

No offense, friends. However, I care not to listen to your YouTube video breakdowns. If you write it out I may or may not skim it. Fact is, evidence by the sweet ass “songs you’re listening to” thread, I’ve gotten far better sounds to hear. That’s simply fact. Also, right now, the Phillies and Flyers rookie games are on...is also football season and so like....write it cliff note style and maybe I’ll skim during commercials....if I’m not firing up some funk. 

Thanks for the spam though, fella.
