    • GSP STARTED THE RETIREMENT OF THE GLOVES IN THE RING

    • @Johan Mentally he waant the best. I saw the press b4 the fight and he, when asked about his predictions ,seemed scared. He even responds idk with an insecure face. Against Khabib u could tell he was nervous, here it was different. His stance and figthing style also changed P.s no excuse tho

    • What about Conor vs Chandler winner faces Dustin for belt?

    • @Ntokozo Shange wasn't it mainly the leg though? Same thing happened to Chandler in Bellator.

    • Dustin used ATT signature leg kick. Just as Izzy did to Costa, Dustin knew Conor would be too eager to come forward and it cost him, dearly. Dustins ring IQ was better on the night. I can see Conor coming back strong tho...

  • “Special protection for your bois” coin that shit.

  • I totally disagree that he seemed out of shape, I think he was in the best shape I’ve seen in a while, I just think he hasn’t been doing any competitive simulations in his training camp

  • The thing is that we saw what happened this shit is unnecessary.

  • It's like watching a Trump supporter trying to say he's a nice guy still. He lost because he was beaten. He was beaten legally and fairly. Poirer won convincingly, therefor he was better end of.

  • "Nobody expected this takedown" - Enter Khabib

  • I think conor looked great. Its just that porier's inprovement and strategy was too much. And BTW conor was puzzled mid fight as soon as the takedown and leg kicks begun

  • I think the problem for Connor was him thinking that Dustin was the same guy he beat 6 years ago. Big mistake!!!

  • He's been finished in 3 of his last 6. Can we stop overrating him based on a fluke from 5 years ago?

  • Sheet underwear I ain't putting my piece in that little hole all day

  • Couldn't agree with you more... You're a scientist when it comes to breaking down fights man 🙏

  • Conor hasn't won a fight at 155 since 2016, and he is still ranked top 5, and talked about fighting for the belt. that is the real scam.

  • horse shit you guys look foolish and sound worse.

  • conor and his team before the fight were saying this is the best conor we have ever seen and now after the fight i hear all kinds of excuses

  • LOL @ the song at the end, "Uncle Chael" .. fucking classic 😁👍

    • Here's what happened: THE HYPE WAS EXPOSED!!!

  • "You didn't tell anybody anything. You just spoke." - Ok, great.

    • just isnt the fighter he once was. He will never contend for a title at 155 again. All of the top 5 fighters at 155 beat Connor right now.

  • Conor may be 3-3 in his last 6, but he's 1-2 in ALL of his 155 UFC fights EVER. Conor deserves to be in a title fight as much as Chael deserves to be in a spelling contest.

  • So GSP should have been smoked by Bisping because GSP didn't fight at all (MMA or Boxing) for 4 years? Ok.

  • years and improving every time.

  • Why cant the guy with an 8 fight win streak ever fight for a title.

    • That fair, but put to put his win streak in perspective, he has one top 10 win at 55 at that is against the shell of what used to be Tony Ferguson.

  • Connor cant fight for the beltch

    • whiskey, Conor did not learn from the Floyd fight he made too much money, if it was a boxing match Conor would have won, Khabib is boring, Khabib jumping out of the cage

  • THERE IS A REALLY THIN LINE BETWEEN A WEASON & A EXCUSE...

  • years and improving every time.

  • Has anybody ever thought Henry Cejudo for Khabib? Like yeah Khabib is bigger but Henry is quicker....also its an olympic wrestler vs a dagastan wrestler. i just think its an interesting matchup

  • Speaking of drug addicts... I love how nobody talks about the fact quirky could barely like that joint but when he did, he had cocaine on his finger... Just like nobody talks about him raping that girl and then retiring to keep the media from talking about it... You're not a journalist, you're a hype man, you sell fights...

  • How many videos have you made saying that there's no such thing as ring rust??? I could swear I've seen quite a few of those ... must be that Irish Cream talking again

  • Again, even your dumbass was talking about how this was going to be the best Corky McGregor anybody had ever seen, prior to the fight... Everybody was talking about how strong he is, how many hours he's been putting in the gym, how ready he was and that there would be no excuses... It's crazy to hear you making these excuses! But then again, your breath doesn't smell like Irish Cream consistently, so I shouldn't be that surprised...

  • Again, he wasn't a gentleman... He was trying to steal the moment with his excuses and it backfired on him, he's a punk and I'm so glad that there's a meme now ... Mr highlight...

  • And somebody that's been calling out the Corky hype-train since the beginning, I was so happy to see him lose on a personal level... But if somebody that collects cards and has been really pushing for MMA cards to take off, Corky losing hurt the entire Hobby... We really would have seen a jump in MMA card values if Corky would have won that...

  • Here's what happened: THE HYPE WAS EXPOSED!!!

  • Screw Michael Chandler. It has to be Dustin and Do Bronx for the belt. If not Do Bronx, then Gaethje.

  • How would you guys feel about Connor going back down to 145? I know he hasn't since 2015 and maybe he can't even cut that much weight anymore but he just isn't going to contend for a title at 155 anymore. He isn't the same fighter who beat up Eddie Alvarez.

  • Poirier is by far a much better fighter than he was 6 years ago. At the end of the day Connor is no longer the fighter he once was. Leading up to the fight the story was how Connor is back and better than ever. There is no way anyone who knows anything about the sport can truly say they believed that. You can blame it on ring rust but the truth is he just isnt the fighter he once was. He will never contend for a title at 155 again. All of the top 5 fighters at 155 beat Connor right now.

  • 11:47 I need that on a tshirt

  • my answer: conor was the same , inactive dustin got ten times f**+**g better

    • I liked it very much i am very thankfull?

  • Dustin has been in the trenches, fighting the top 155lbs guys, Conor has been sparring little boys on yachts. Chael is wrong btw way about foot strikes. Conor never had leg kicks like that before that he checked.

  • *THE DEFINITIVE MCTAPPER FAN EXCUSE COMPILATION* *BEFORE POIRIER FIGHT:* _Put your feet up and watch the masterpiece I will paint on Poirier, I run MMA, I am levels above greatness, Conor finally looks focused and a focused Conor is dangerous, Conor has never looked this serious and focused in his life, this is the old Conor we love and miss, mark my words Poirier is in trouble, Conor already destroyed Poirier, the Irish are back, ou can tell Conor is serious now Conor is in a great place mentally and has matured as a man and as a fighter, Poirier has nothing that can worry Conor, Poirier is scared and remembers the last fight against Conor, Conor is in such good shape, Poirier is gonna get smoked, the King is back, Conor is sober now a sober Conor is unbeatable, Conor has a deadly left hand , easy 1st round KO. Mark my words, the king of MMA has returned. All you Conor haters will be silent after the fight mark my words. Conor being rich only makes him better and focused._ *AFTER POIRIER FIGHT:* _Conor was not focused on MMA, Conor is too rich now, he has lost his dangerous streak, Conor has never been in good shape and always gasses out, if it was a 1 round Taekwondo match Conor would have won, Conor is a father now the only UFC fighter with kids and a family this distracted him, Conor had the wrong hairstyle, Conors stance was not wide as usual, Conor did not use his kicks more if he did he woud have won, Conor is not in his prime, at least Conor made money,Conor does not have the same intensity that helped him build his momentum, Conor is not light on his feet, of the fight was at 145, if Conor had a sword and baseball bat, if it was a street fight, if it was 2017 Conor "would have won", Poirer is the greatest MMA fighter to ever live atleat conor lasted 2 rounds._ *BEFORE NATE DIAZ 1:* _Diaz is a sloppy, 11th ranked fighter, he is too slow, he cuts easily and has a skinny fat body, everybody lands on Diaz and Conor's left hand is deadly. Diaz can't box, Diaz is not as muscular as Conor, Conor will sleep him easily, this is just a warm up fight, Diaz smokes weed he is just here for a payday, Diaz is not even a top 50 MMA fighter._ *AFTER NATE DIAZ 1:* _Diaz is naturally a 6 foot 5 , 345 lbs linebacker/bodybuilder/pro boxer, Conor was "inefficient" with his energy, at least Conor cut Diaz a bit, no one cuts Diaz. Diaz used to be a boxer, Diaz would probably beat Mike Tyson, Diaz has better ground game than Royce Gracie, Diaz is one of the greatest MMA fighters to ever live._ *BEFORE FLOYD MAYWEATHER:* _49-1 Mark my words, Floyd is not even top 50 in boxing he just runs and has no power, Floyd just pays ref's. Floyd is too old, too small and has brittle hands, Conors amazing left hand will break Floyds defence, Conor has been boxing his entire career, Conor started off as a boxer he has a lot of Boxing experience, Conor will not gas out he is in the greatest shape of his life, Conor is winning the mental game in press conferences 3rd round KO easily 49-1, 12 oz gloves Conor's power will show he has a freight train lef hand._ *AFTER FLOYD MAYWEATHER:* _Floyd is in his prime at 40, Floyd is the greatest boxer to ever live, at least Conor "lasted" 10 rounds with the p4p king, at least Conor made money, Conor has never boxed in his life, if it was a street fight Floyd would have died, if Conor had a baseball bat he would have won, if Floyd came to the octagon, if Floyd had one arm and two left feet , Conor was not in shape, Conors power doesn't show in 12oz gloves. Atleast Conor hit him._ *BEFORE KHABIB FIGHT:* _Conor learned so much from facing Mayweather, Khabib has a glass jaw and is afraid of a smack Conor told him in the press conference, Khabib has no stand up, has no chance of dropping Conor on the feet, Conor is not afraid of Khabib's grappling his Jiu Jitsu is underrated, Conor looks confident and focused, Khabib is quiet cause he is scared, Khabib has no gas tank, Khabib has never faced a fighter like Conor, Conor learned from his loss to Nate, he is stronger now. Conor smashing the bus and injuring other fighters was amazing pure entertainment this is why we love Conor._ *AFTER KHABIB FIGHT:* _Khabib is naturally a 400lb WWE wrestler he is the same size as Cormier, Khabib is on steroids he is Russian, Conor was not in good shape, Conor was focused on his whiskey, Conor did not learn from the Floyd fight he made too much money, if it was a boxing match Conor would have won, Khabib is boring, Khabib jumping out of the cage is not entertainment it was criminal he should be locked up this is why we hate Khabib, Conor should have been given the W becasue Khabib jumped the cage after the fight. At least Conor won a round._

  • I don't like the way that chael talks and enunciates like every damn thing he says is important. He comes off as a blowhard whos trying to fake charisma. What a dork.

  • i put 6 bucks on dustin, got 20 bucks in return.

  • -_"Oliveiras of the world, if they ever are gonna speak up, need to do it now."_ ... _Gaethje has been relatively quiet..._ TRANSLATION: "Guys, our main hype-train-driver is running low! Make some NOISE and DRAMA!"

  • -_"He is not a guy who refused to shake hands, refused to give a post-fight speech, or refused to go to the press-conference._ _Those are procedural issues that you do, whether you win or whether you lose."_ Is that a dig at Dan Hooker?

    • I wonder if Conor even knows who Chael is

  • -_"When Conor got up from that exchange, he was no different. Not meaningfully,... but he was different, it changed him._ _It also... offered a threat. The threat of a takedown is just as effective as a takedown._ _..._ _That's where the fight has started to change. Not only Conor got up a little bit more tired, but now he has a threat of a takedown."_ Nope. This takedown only showed that Poirier is able to do it. But it had no impact on the result. Moreover, I would argue it was more beneficial for McGregor than for Poirier. Yes, it went through, but Poirier has not realized its potential. He did nothing. Beyond that, McGregor has overpowered Poirier with ease and got up quite quickly. That really surprised me (and he talked about that at the press-conference). To me, after that scramble POIRIER LOOKED VISIBLY MORE TIRED, while MCGREGOR DID NOT. After they split, Poirier immediately ate several significant strikes which rocked him, and missed his own shots, respectively. Poirier lost the first round, he was outstriked and outgrappled. Thus, I think the opposite, it showed both of them that takedown from Poirier perhaps is not that dangerous for McGregor. So McGregor neither was tired nor much threatened by a takedown. And what are you talking about? Successful takedown created a threat? The threat of a takedown is ever-present in this match-up, regardless of previous attempts, if any. What has really changed the fight, and it is clear as day, is those calf kicks. Sure, Poirier had started to lay the foundation in the first round, but where you can see it started to go downhill for McGregor - is around 04:45 of the 2nd round. After two more crippling calf kicks the damage began to settle. The leg was just incapacitated. McGregor started to lose movement speed drastically, and soon his punches did, too. After few more faltering steps, Poirier just fell on him with an avalanche of blows, because McGregor couldn't move away, and Poirier was ready to eat a few more counterpunches in the process. To conclude, I see it as a strategic victory/loss. McGregor looked promising and generally had outplayed Poirier on many levels in the beginning, but he allowed to lose a leg. And having only one leg and no ground game plan, you are almost guaranteed to lose in a stand-up fight.

    • mins that definitely played a part in the loss. Fair play to Dustin tho he got his revenge

  • anyone: tells mom that they love them uncle chael: you didn't tell anyone anything, you didn't part with your money

    • "You didn't tell anybody anything. You just spoke." - Ok, great.

  • Again uncle chael idk what fights you've seen lol..look at all of conors previous fights..the opponent would throw a leg.kick conor would shake his head and they would Never threw one again....he took more leg kicks in one round than his entire career.

  • Dustin was more surprised at the takedown than ANYONE? lol Conor does have good takedown defense but no one ever tried except khabib really

  • I tried very hard to believe you, but you are unfairly and grossly biased towards conor mcgregor.

  • _- "What in Dustin's past shows you that he has the skill and the ability to go wrestle him?"_ Is being bjj black belt and one of the few fighters who was able to offer at least some ressistance to Khabib's grappling not good enough for you? Stop dusting casuals' eyes with these contrived and farfetched excuses/explanations. Wrestling and staggering was always one of preferred strategies for Poirier. But hey, just beause the striking turned out to be more effective, you can't shit like that on Poirier's grappling. McGregor may have a stronger takedown defence than Poirier, but once it's through, Poirier is definitely better on the ground than McGregor.

  • why??? throwing the glove should be rewarded and viewed as a mark of dignity or something? in that interpretation of the quitting gesture, that is pure infantile expression of frustration. Russians have it in classic literature - to throw the glove at someone means declaring war - an invitation to a duel

  • Goddamnit, I love Chael Sonnen !

  • I'm with Justin, if Conor's next fight is for the belt.. I'm never fighting in the UFC again.

  • The symbol on those underwears That you are endorsing Is the symbol For pedophilia Men who like little boys I would never wear them Look it up And don't endorse them. It's on the fbi website. I don't know if you knew this, but I will share this with you. Love your videos and your channel. Around the waist is what I am talking about.

  • Its sad no one is giving much props to Dustin

  • ... and Conor says a lot of things, but if he'd have won, he'd be off boxing Manny. He ain't fighting 4 times in a year!

  • Who am I to disagree with the undefeated Chael P., but did every other fighter really throw leg kicks? Did Conor really look scrawny and the worst ever?? I say no, no, and no.

  • I was surprised by Conor's stance. He didn't use the "karate" stance that he normally uses. He had a weird boxing stance.

    • Its almost as if it wasn't connor

  • Can you put Connor in a title fight when he's got one win in the division and just got KO'd? Don't even bother answering, this question is offensive.

  • Conor was in good physical shape. But fighting isn’t all about fitness and strength. The fact that since 2018 Conor only had 40 seconds of cage time unlike Dustin who had 80 mins that definitely played a part in the loss. Fair play to Dustin tho he got his revenge

    • Oliviera vs Poirier for belt thats it, enough talk! Chandler needs to fight 2 more before a belt fight! Needs to earn it in UFC!

  • I wonder if Conor even knows who Chael is

  • my answer: conor was the same , inactive dustin got ten times f**+**g better

  • "You didn't tell anybody anything. You just spoke." - Ok, great.

  • when chael makes the explore page 👌🏻

  • Yeah, i get that people pretend kabib didnt retire 9 weeks ago but i feel people also assume diaz still fights. Hes done fuuuck all for years now i dont know why hes always in the mix

  • Look at chael reading his script at the beginning

  • Max halloway vs porior

  • Conor must fight MC

  • The guy that cheated him whole career the bad guy ... bum

    • dueeh nyyu is your page full of paid followers lol 😂.

    • Connor is trash . He said he had the most best camp ever he felt he was one in the sun so if that was home at 100% and We all wanna dusting to win nobody cares about Connor anymore besides his brain washed fans . Cherry picker . Now he stuck in a position where he’s not going to get a big fight next he has to work his way back . It doesn’t matter brings in 200 million people . The true fighters of the division right now is Leon Edwards Dustin Poirier Justin , KHABIB obv . No we have Charles Oliveira you can’t just skip out of these guys and get a title shot . Nobody will care for it and eveyone already said it he has to work his way back he needs atleast 2 wins or a big knockout to put his name back in the conversation

    • dueeh nyyu they alredy did u fool

    • so hard to believe that the best lightweights in the world (Khabib, Poirier etc) could beat Conor at his best?

  • anyone: tells mom that they love them uncle chael: you didn't tell anyone anything, you didn't part with your money

    • Basically anytime Conor loses it's never because the other guy is better. There's always some excuse =)) The guy is 3-3 since leaving the Featherweight division. I think peop

  • The Conor McGregor 6 years ago @ the Conor McGregor now are two different people even his style is different

  • I agree with Chael ring rust is real ! Rematch Connor wins

  • everyone has an uncle Chael in the family....

  • Oliviera vs Poirier for belt thats it, enough talk! Chandler needs to fight 2 more before a belt fight! Needs to earn it in UFC!

  • McGregor is all but finished. Legacy's end. Hes had his time

  • Scrawny and weak?? I submit to you: Unpowerful

  • Connor McGregor’s reign is over, just jump on another band wagon already. I’m sick of all this unnecessary drama and bullshit.

  • expert analysis from uncle chael. kinda easy when theres actually stuff to break down xD

  • Ummm..check my taplology I picked Poirier and Chandler by ko.....

  • Agree on him not checking leg kicks. Was very strange from Connor. But to say his mini take down changed the match is ridiculous. Conor dominated the first round & Dustin looked way too slow for him. Even with a rusty connor I will still say that the better fighter did not win. Dustin is awesome & knew it would be close, but apart from the leg kicks Connor was clearly better skilled. What concerns me more is that connors chin was so soft. He’s been hit like that many times & not gone down. Very worrying going forward.

  • Has to be poirier v oliveria for the belt.. the chandler gaethe hooker etc all fight it out for No1 contender slot... McGregor Diaz just for shits and gigs

  • Connor lost and Chael is just another person giving excuses for him I bring that to you

    • I like both fighters, but damn chael could you have sounded any more biased. What do you have against DP?

  • I like u man,but you became an conor a** kisser. Do not take merit from a way better fighter to justify a great trash talker whose luck ran out.

  • Basically anytime Conor loses it's never because the other guy is better. There's always some excuse =)) The guy is 3-3 since leaving the Featherweight division. I think people forget Nate Diaz isn't even a top contender. He's a fan-favorite gatekeeper. And yet he dusted Conor the first time and lost a razor thin decision to him the second time. Is it really so hard to believe that the best lightweights in the world (Khabib, Poirier etc) could beat Conor at his best?

  • Hes just not hungry for it anymore. Hes already made it. The dog climbing the hill is hungrier than the dog on the top of the hill.

  • If Conor wants a rematch he's gonna have to kick Dustin's lead leg right off the bat or implement stance switching to prevent poirier from throwing leg kicks! Could use his front hook kick to prevent it as well but dang dustin got good accuracy

  • He was out of shape?! Really Chael. The whole build up was how this was the best shape he ever been in and all that stuff. Now all the sudden he wasn't? Fuck outta here. He just got out skilled plain and simple. Difference is Dustin got people giving him that work everyday like gamebred and them killers at ATT, making him better and more durable. Conor has human punching bags and yes men who make sure he wins every spar and training session. He got exposed that's all. If he can't knock someone out early, he has no other threats to beat anyone with.

  • He got pieced up! That's what happened Chael...

  • Chael is correct on the matter its no excuses conor is the most intelligent man his brain works like no one else his name is bigger than most athletes. Do not forget no one cared about dustin even me. Conor is a observer and a man who calculates his opponent's and times his knockdowns. This conor did not he was Planning to please manny paccio and max Holloway, conor forgot the world was watching only him and famous people. Conor was thinking about passing max Holloway and his performance but forgot about dustin and his moves and plan to take his leg off. Conor should have known a game plan not a boxing match

  • Chael starting to sound awful salty and bitter in his videos. Hope he's doing okay.

  • “Apples aren’t apples here”

  • To be fair, everyone mentioning the boxing stance, we saw that briefly against Cerrone but nobody mentioned anything, obviously Dustin and Cerrone aren’t comparable but I feel like we knew coming into this one his stance would be different

    • @chael Conor has separated from his longtime girlfriend and mother of his boy. I do believe that he has lost a little piece of support that has got him where he is now

  • The ultimate salesman😂👍🏾

  • Fights to make in this division: Porier vs Oliveira Chandler vs Gaethej Hooker vs Mc Gregor That's how things should go. Chandler just arrived. He needs to fight one more time at least to prove his ready for the titleshot.

  • Dustin is a MMA artist, that's why Conor got whooped.

  • CONFIRMED Chael is in the Mcgregor camp all i heard was excuses excuses excuses

  • The hell with that ring rust!!!! Dustin skill level was too much for Conor! Dustin's boxing has gotten more crisp and his ability to take a punch and stick the game plan came with experience as he's endured alot more wars.

    • @Soinas Doyi how it should be.

    • I have respect for both fighters.

  • I don't think Chael likes Dustin very much.

    • fighting Eddie for the light weight belt within the same year. Fighting that much, sharpened Conor's skill. This time tho, Dustin put in the time and was more active then Conor

  • Connor did not look like his self. He has lived a fast life...this might not be just rust, I think his prime could be being cut short because of hus life style!

  • I like both fighters, but damn chael could you have sounded any more biased. What do you have against DP?

  • Poirier vs oliveira Chandler vs gaethje Conor vs tony

  • Chael, what do you think of Poirier Vs Oliveria for the vacant lightweight title, Chandler Vs Ferguson, Gaethje Vs Nate Diaz and like you said Connor Vs Hooker? We already saw Poirier vs Hooker and Poirier Vs Gaethje, what are your thoughts???

  • Damn uncle chael, normaly you are spot on but let me offer you this; diaz 1: I wasn't efficient with my energy. Khabib: my foot was a balloon. Dustin 2: I was inactive....you see the problem here? Had he won you'd get the praise and never mentioned inactivity. Cruz once told Faber if you focus on reasons why you lost versus fixing them you won't get better.
