Who looked on top at the time it happened?
Stupidly McGregor got into a grapple fight with Poirier, which is one of Dustin's strengths.

Conor had him unsettled with his kicks to Dustin's right leg. They were stinging him. Should've stayed upright.

It would have been hilarious if Conor actually submitted Dustin.

Yeah going for that guillotine was such a bizarre risk to take, the second it failed I though the fight was over. Surprised that McGregor even made it back off the canvas.

Dustin let him up because McGregor was illegally pulling down on the glove. Ironically conors leg would be fine if he didn’t do that lol

What an incredible fight.

Volkanovski a class above, but wow, Ortega has some heart. Still can't believe that Alex got out of those submissions.

Volk is a cardio machine. He just doesn’t get tired and to survive two Ortega submissions is unbelievable!

That was incredible.
Volk earned a ton of new fans after that fight.
A couple more wins and he will start earning his place in the GOAT debate.

If he beats max Holloway again should the trilogy happen then it’s without doubt he is the featherweight goat and I’m a max Holloway fanboy.

Ive re-watched him slip those sub attempts by Ortega a dozen times now, incredible stuff.
I cant believe he didn't go to sleep.
That third round will go down in history as one of the toughest championship rounds the sport has seen.

That moment in the second attempt I think it was, where Ortega's got his legs around Volks neck and their face to face - you can see the determination and absolute intensity in Volks eyes.

That moment both scared and impressed the shit out of me. Screenshot 20210927 105146 YouTube

I'm pretty excited and keen for this weekend's fight, Fury v Wilder 3!

Fury is just great to watch with his unorthodox heavyweight style, and Wilder as seemingly dimwitted as he appears to be, he can really end a fight with one punch.

First PPV I'm buying legally in a long time, just annoying it's one day before we're allowed to have people over.

I really hope fury wins convincingly just so we can all move on from the fury wilder show. If wilder wins, fury will want to run it back and it just goes back and forth again.

Fury will clown Wilder again. He can actually box, Wilder cant. Then I hope Fury moves on to Olysk next to unify the division belts. AJ has hidden enough and the unification fights need to start happening.
