    It's so bogus to try and claim Jon only beat DC because of dope- the amount they found in his system wouldn't have given anyone an advantage- and that's a quote directly from USADA. Extreme weigh cutting and showing up 10 pounds heavier than your opponenet gives you as much or more advantage as any PED but, no one cares about that- it's not only allowed, the fans ignore it as well. The truth is that the only ppl who really think dope is why Jon beat DC are these super sensitive types that can't stand to see someone they deem a "bad person" have any success- it throws their whole concept of justice and the good guy always winning right out the window- and they can't handle that. But the UFC isn't about who the better man is, it's about who the better fighter is- and that's Jon Jones in this case- period.

    i like Javier's honesty . he's not just saying khabib will just walk threw Conor and can beat him everywhere. i like both of these fighters but i like Conor a little more and understand that if this goes past the second round ,its khabib all week long. i do think there's a good chance Conor catches him in the first 2 rounds. i cant wait to see this fight.

    Damn! Ariel is nosy. It's none of his business why Poirier was going to Jersey. But then again, I guess that's what makes him such a good interviewer.

    Javier Mendez mentions at the end of the interview that Cain seems to be good to go, so why not set up a fight with him and Jones at heavyweight? For sure that would be a main event big enough for MSG ;) I can imagine that getting a lot of people excited and would come as quite a shock in the best way possible.

    I can't believe thats all they keep saying Khabib gets hit in every fight. Well so does Connor or do we not point that out? Connor also gets taken down in most of his fights at least once. Connor can catch Khabib but the chances that Connor will KO Khabib with 1 punch is astronomically low. In my personal opinion I think this fight will be back and forth for about 2 minutes and then Khabib takes over

    Man you think Javier Mendez was Connor McGregor’s coach the way he was giving him so much praise.. he basically said “if Khabib doesn’t take him down he’s screwed” lol

    For me it’s the same. Not sure what everyone’s beef is with the show. The only thing I don’t like is I’m not really sure how to watch the show live. With that said, it was very rare that I watched any of the show live anyway so I watch the interviews I’m interested in on Tuesday and Wednesday on you tube. I saw mma juice saying they are having are not able to stream it internationally. Is that mainly live that you are talking about as it seems it would be easy enough to watch it on you tube for anyone, anywhere
