    that's one I was thinking of, Tony Ayala Jr. was another. Probably a lot of them.

    Following Satuday's pay-per-view event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, UFC president Dana White announced the winners of the UFC 223 fighter bonuses. Zabit Magomedsharipov, Kyle Bochniak, Chris Gruetzemacher, and Olivier Aubin-Mercier earned the $50,000 performance incentives.

    something else I haven't seen talked about, Iaquinta was only training for a three round fight.

    I'm not 100% positive, but I believe he can't get a license to fight because it's a work visa thing, not to mention I don't think he'd be allowed back in the US with a felony.

    That doesn't mean he can't fight outside of the US though.

    Edit: in regards to Tyson, he is also a US citizen so the rules are a bit different.

    What Conor did was horrible but it’s not unforgivable in my eyes. I will probably not root for him but I hope he learns from this. I can’t really judge. I’ve done some dip shit things in my days. Hopefully he goes to anger management and does some forced charity work after a jail sentence. He has a lot of work to do on himself. I love a good redemption story but he does have to pay the piper.

    I just said "could" be trouble. Alot of people think holding your chin high is not a good idea. I believe Johnson rocked Khabib at least once. But yes, he has dominated all of his challengers so far. I'm not taking anything away from him, if that was what you were implying.

    I bet Pettis is glad he didn’t take/get the fight.

    Think they’ll do Pettis Chiesa soon?

    Possible yes but likely? Hell no. Mike Tyson raped a girl spent a couple years in prison bit a dudes ear off and was granted a license.

    Connor will have no trouble getting licensed to fight in ANY state. And if you think otherwise, you're naive as hell.

    @Trodden @NotSoDarkAngel
    Yea ok him not being a us citizen might make things a bit tougher, but there's too much money involved for there to be any real issues.

    I hope so. Was one I was looking forward to. I like teen wolf. Or caddy from Happy Gilmore. On topic this has been a pretty good Masters! Cmon p reed.

    Because I myself have fucked up. I guess I can judge him I just can’t throw a stone. The inner me hope he rights the ship.

    Anyone think if he had actually caught some real charges for pushing the ref that he may have straightened up? This has to be sobering for him, right? It’s not horrible like rape but it’s bad.

    I encourage you to throw multiple stones, bricks, grenades, etc.

    @Poindexter I’m also a ginger read head with some Irish blood. Is this racist or nationalist or just plain me being stupid. I’d like to add a disclaimer that I like Conor the fighter. I think that entails his madness as well. Madness “our house” is a bitchin 80’s song. I have got on my Sundays best. War Our house. It’s in the middle of our street. Only thing I like more than 80’s music is mma and my family but in no particular order.

    You think Brock Lesnar could throw a pallet jack? That would be bad ass.
