@Mikey1903

TBH I don't actually watch that circus card, I just watched the fights on YouTube afterwards but from what I have seen of Triller events, I don't actually mind all that ****** music as I can just mute it and watch something else until the next fight if I don't like it. Sometimes if the commentators are **** then I just watch the fights on mute as well. UFC, Bellator, PFL, Cage Warriors and some boxing cards are about the only events where I actually watch the filler segments so if Triller want to put Madonna pole dancing in between the fights then I say go for it but don't expect me to watch it! 

As for the standard boxing, I guess I've seen Jamie Quinn and Kevin McCauley get out-pointed by prospects so many times that any fight between two boxers of roughly the same weight is all I ask for!

So Bovada has current odds at -5000 for Conor McGregor over Machine Gun Kelly. Kelly at +1000. 

Thriller is currently deeply interested

It's crazy that Vitor has cheated his entire career
The way he came out was pathetic, going that hard on a 58 year old man? Not to mention he celebrated like he just won a world title.

He's got a good doctor.

I ll play devil's advocate for Vitor Belfort and use the Lance Armstrong defense. Was he really cheating when almost every athlete during his prime was also using PEDs?

Lance Armstrong cheated. But cheating was so bad in cycling that like 95 of the top 100 athletes were cheating. So it was almost a fair playing field at that point.

Vitor was definitely a doper. But so did everyone from his era. He just started his career very young and didn't do cocaine and hookers like Chuck Liddell and burn himself out. I can't blame him for cheating for "most" of his career. Because basically every fighter in the gym was doping, every opponent was doping, and even PrideFc event officials were actually telling the fighters to dope and gain weight because there was no drug testing in Japan.

In the UFC or USA, it used to be a intelligence test. Your drug date is 8pm on July 14th. Be clean that day. Cycle off and on.

So I do have sympathy for fighters from that generation who doped, today's fighters with a clean UFC I have little sympathy from me.

On the one hand, Holyfield is a grown man who can make his own decisions. He knew what he was getting into - better than anyone, really, given how many people he's almost certainly seen badly hurt in combat sports.

On the other hand, what the hell was that?

If Holyfield really is mentally incompetent at this point, everyone on the Florida commission should go to jail.

To be honest it's not the drugs that bother me about Belfort. I mean half, or more, of my favourite fighters have some sort of drug test failure!
I just don't like him!! Haha

@Xconchris

I get your point but Vitor screwed over so many careers (especially Bisping's) yet he's getting headlining spots on major cards, getting props from the former president of the United freaking States, and making a ton of money while being a total prick.

There are a lot of cheats, but I've never seen it as Vitor in the early days, everybody was on steroids in Pride FC, early UFC, other early promotions. My problem is the ability he got to fight while on TRT and blatantly cheated in front of everyone, he was one who just always needed steroids or was terrible. 

I despise the UFC for letting Lesnar fight while obviously on steroids, guys like Chael who made a career off juicing also. It's not just Vitor, but to me it was how in the biggest organization he turned himself into the incredible hulk and fought so painfully obvious juiced/whatever to the gills in a time when guys were getting caught left and right.

They did their time, most of them. Vitor has not paid for any of the destruction he left in his wake in his PED/TRT abuse. I mean once he went off he lost by TKO and went away for a bit, and comes back well, the same cheat he always was. Not even trying to stay away from steroids or PEDS. But who knows who is on steroids, and at 46 it's hard to believe these guys can still perform like this without a little extra something.

The issue with TRT was that it was a legal loophole. Not just Vitor Belfort, but tons of UFC fighters used TRT. We only know about 10 UFC fighters because medical records are private and some fighters were able to keep their use a secret even untill today.

The saddest one I read back before it was banned in 2014 was Forrest Griffin taking TRT. Thought he would be better then that. But also it wasn't cheating. He was playing by the rules. It later became a dirty thing when Super Belfort was created and we saw the results.

Nate Marquardt ****** up and took too much testosterone. Became a Marvel character.

I attached a list of known UFC fighters that took TRT

I really like Triller. And btw I think Triller need to book Evander Hollyfield vs Jake Paul next. That what the true Triller boxing fans want to see.

@duck Triller is definitely the best MMA promotion in the world, no question.

Today has been a really random day of fight announcements. Tbh I don't hate the trilogy fight. Figgy would've won the first on without the lost point and Moreno really shocked me with the adjustments he made in the second fight.
