  • If Conor actually wants to be a serious contender he wouldve already booked a fight with Tony. If Conor lost to the champ and wants nothing to do with the next best guy on a 12 fight win streak, then he isn’t worth mentioning in a serious conversation. Let him have the rare one off fight with some jerk off like Nate Diaz

  • Yo Anthony penis bro you sorry dude everybody tells you you like the worst fighter in the MMA octagon bro I kick KO you my grandma on TKO you and my little brother could KO you. Bro last time I checked Tony ko'd you... bro you suck............. you got lucky on the Wonder Boy fight and now you act like you're the world champion stop pronates going to trash you dude......... like honestly Road you don't have what it takes to be the best in the world you get ko'd by everyone everyone cares you.... you're like the KO boy you're The Waterboy but worse if the KO Boy

  • we know wonderboy took a dive, ima address the elephant in the room

  • I'd fight Conor for 52 fuckin grandfather would fight him for that kind money... No shit Anthony the bum Pettis would wanna fight him for the money no shit Sherlock....

  • the moment when pettis said his coach filled the role of his dad. you know pettis had teary eyes, maybe just mine haha.hahahah hhnnnnngggggggggggggggggg....

  • Juggling Taxi 🚖 Graduations

  • Watching this again, and why did Megan need to state she was from New Jersey ?? Lmao what difference does it make where she’s from , lol man. Women..

  • Funny liberals never protest MMA over toxic masculinity.

  • They deleted the highlights wtf

  • You know Conor is a easy fight when literally everyone is constantly calling him out. Khabib is a superstar now and a undefeated champ and not a single guy has called him out.

  • mcgregor vs pettis would be epic lets be honest

  • Tony don't do it you will be hurt.

  • Twood vs Pettis lmao


  • Conor would kill this kid after seeing Wonderboy wore his ass out, Got a lucky superman punch to get it done.

    • Just wasn't lucky, though.

  • Pettis isn’t even on mcgregor’s or Stephen Thomson’s level. He got lucky with that punch. A real mma fan will not really consider him on the level we’re talking about.

    • A real MMA fan won't say that was a lucky punch.

  • Well none of that is happening now.

  • Winning VIA lucky punch and now he is calling out Conor. Dude, Thompson was beating the hell out of you but unfortunately he was stupid enough to let his guards down. The fuck, you dont deserve a fight vs Connor. Btw, he just announced his "retirement". Lol

  • Something Tyrone couldn't do

  • I want to see connor get rag dolled by khabib again

  • Not gonna happen anymore since Connor retired

  • Well of course he would. I would get in the ring and fight CM for that kind of money. With swords.

  • It's all fun and games till someone gets punched in the mouth

  • Fuck google fuck the resistance lets fight🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳

  • So many fighters want to fight Conor, do they know that McGregor retired yet?

  • its not a sport punching people

  • love these 4

  • And? Does anyone honestly want to listen to Conor bleat trash for a month during the build up as he hawks his whiskey and drags the sport into the dumpster

  • Pettis -"I'll fight anybody",was he referring to Woodley? Would dana white do Woodley vs Pettis, to fight for a title shot?

  • I WANT TO FIGHT CONNER, catch phrase and on the back of the t shirt FOOK CONNER I HATE THE COONT

  • Michael Jackson is a pedophile 👌

  • *I wanna watch Jon Jones vs Brock Lesnar!!!*

  • If Pettis fights McGregor I don't care if that fight is on the moon I'm going to watch it

  • Anderson’s debut was 32 but he didn’t spend years before that cutting hard weight and getting hit by UFC fighters, he was fighting mostly bums. I think him debuting so late had a lot to do with his success. It’s not about age, it’s about miles and your chin.

  • Duke is such a great guy. Love that Pettis has only stayed with him no matter what goes on.

  • I cant stand a pettis

  • Hope he doesn’t do himself the disservice of jumping back and forth between weights. Every fighter that’s done that (except for champions) just gets lost in the mix instead of rising toward a title in one division. If he just wants big fights okay but if he wants a title he should pick.

  • Anyone who knows boxing could see that punch coming all night. Every right Pettis threw kept creeping closer and closer, I was just waiting for it. Had no idea it’d be such a hard shot though, that was wild.

  • Paid off

  • Everytime a fighter wins: I wanna fight connor

  • Every one wants to suck on Connors nutsack after they win a damn fight be careful what you wish for Mystic Mac will demolish your wore out ass

  • No way you mean to tell me another fighter wants to fight Mcgreggor thats crazy....what else is the sky blue today

  • Why is everybody calling out connor hes shite everybody looking for the easy dude

  • Everyone wanna fight connor obvi for the money duhhhhh

  • One lucky punch with a 1-5 in his last fights and he's calling out brock lesnar..... and he's a side talker, i hate people with those chins that aren't symmetrical. It's my ocd.

  • Wonderboy was picking your ass apart. gotta give props though. AMAZING finish. Askren v Pettis, Wonderboy vs Lawler....lets see em!

    • @Luka i have eyes. Everybody that has them saw it.

    • You have no clue what you're talking about.

  • Conor always has a lot to say when "strikers" win. Still trying to see if they can get a striker in there with Conor for that easy win.. smh.

    • @William Lewis ., For the record, my comment was a jab at the ufc's need to resucitate Conor's career by ensuring the possibility of him KO'ing of a standup figher. Is that clear enough for ya, genius!!! It was sarcasm. Now go back to studying boxing history.

    • @William Lewis ., I been watching prize-fighter and the UFC when Royce G, put this shyt together. Where the hell were you then? Sitting on ya daddy's lap, watching Barney? Save it, david!!!

    • You clearly don’t understand the goal of prize fighting and why the UFC or any fight organization is created.

  • Takes a special fighter to admit when he's been broken by wrestlers.

  • Duke is so damn modest and humble; giving Pettis all the credit. He’s a brilliant coach. Creating the most underrated camp. Managing egos like Woodley, Sergio, Anthony, Felder all in one gym! Never any controversy. If Jones were kicked out of Jackson-Wink ONE day we would hear about it the same day.

  • Can we just officially say EVERYONE wants to fight Conor and make millions of dollars? Sick of people way bigger than Conor and way down in the rankings trying to call out the CHAMP CHAMP
