    You guys assume that the UFC league doesn't want all this publicity to happen. Whoever the Commissioner is, I doubt he's some punitive nerd like David Stern. He loves it.

    wasn’t really the crowd. Crowd doesn’t sit where the corner sits. They sit behind that. If you watch the footage, he didn’t just jump into the crowd. He jumped straight at dillon Danis. Nobody else was in harms way. Nothing even happened from it because the bodyguards stopped it real quick

    Did you watch any clips of the brawl? It was not just two guys.
    I just got done watching a clip of a couple people going at it in the crowd while a fighter jumps off the ring at them with a flying kick. A decent scuffle of some people happen there and at the same time another fight broke out in the ring.

    Just saying, it was not just two people going at it in the crowd. Thats not even close to accurate.

    They billed this fight as the biggest, most anticipated ever. Why? If you forget all the out-of-ring BS by MacGregor, there really isn't a whole lot to build up. They have history, but so do most guys in big fights. Khalid is an animal but just making a name for himself. Connor hasn't fought in a long time.
    My point is, without the over the line shit talking by CM and the bus attack, the UFC didn't have much to build off. So yeah, the UFC is beyond hypocritical in how they used the incidents to promote after the lip service of how bad those actions were.
    The UFC had a good thing going for a long time. One of the things that made it what it became was the simplicity of it all. Now they have delved into the world of WWE and for my money, it's not nearly as appealing as it was. Hopefully they learn from this and get back to the fights being the showcase.

    Because it was. They are expecting it to break the previous PPV record (1.65MM) with some estimates going as high as 2.5MM buys. Even if it only hits 2MM that makes it the biggest event they've done from a PPV standpoint.

    McGregor's awaited return to face arguably the best LW in MMA history, with whom his team had tremendous animosity, was more than enough to sell the fight.

    Dude, you missed the point of my post. I wasn't questioning whether or not it was the biggest fight ever. Obviously, when it breaks records, it is.
    My point was the hypocrisy that Dana White showed in making it that big. The stunt CM pulled should have been enough that the UFC would just get rid of him. Instead, they use it to build up the storyline and profit from it. Total WWE move. And most of my friends have said they lost some respect for the UFC after last night.
    Now, the ultimate test will be how they respond to this. Will the protect the authenticity of the sport or do they slap a couple wrists and use it to promote the sequel.

    I was there. So, didn’t need to watch clips. I had a great view. I have also watched a ton of clips as well because it was fucking hilarious.

    People were going at it in the crowd no matter what. People were obnoxious all night. Drunk Russians, Drunk Americans, and drunk Irish.

    The fighter jumped at ONE specific person, Dillon Danis, who is one of the best Brazilian jiu jitsu practitioners in the world as well as fighter in Bellator. That is where the corners are. The scuffle is people separating Danis from Khabib, they didn’t even go at it for more than a couple seconds. Most of them were security.

    The scuffle in the ring has nothing to do with Khabib and scuffles have happened multiple times after fights in the ring. Werdum has thrown bombs at people for instance.

    Also, where Khabib jumped, was Conor McGregors corner area.

    In regards to Khabib, it was two guys... him and Dillon Danis.

    Conor also threw the first punch at Khabibs brother, inciting the melee inside of the Octagon.

    you do realize the clip you showed shows the fighter exiting the ring and then another fight in the ring with Connor and trainers?

    Also, 99% of the time the worst view you can have is from IN the arena. Cant see over heads and other bodies, etc. Elevated cameras will ALWAYS give a better view than being in the stands....


    Again, Im not calling this malice in the palace 2, but your description of the event is not accurate. Proven by the cameras that caught the footage. Half the scuffles in the malice at the palace was people trying to hold others back as well. Whenever a fight breaks out there are people trying to hold others back.

    I have no clue what you’re going on about. My description of the event is completely accurate, reinforced by what the NSAC ultimately decided.

    You were going off of clips of the event, while I was there and witnessed the entire event unfold and I was REAL close to the action.

    Khabib jumps fence going after Dillon Danis, after Danis Is verbally taunting him and one of his training partners. Security restrains them VERY quickly. Danis landed ONE punch on Khabib before they were separated, after the flying knee. There was a TON of security here, so there weren’t a ton of fights around this situation. Particularly near the cage. Mostly people being separated, once again, by security. Luke Rockhold helped restrain Khabib very quickly.

    While this is breaking out, Conor tries to jump the fence where he sees Khabibs brother. Conor punches Khabibs brother, who has done nothing at this point.

    Then, Conor is attacked in the ring by multiple people, after cold clocking Khabibs brother on the fence, as shown.

    Why is Nevada suddenly going after Conor if this isn’t what happened?

    And no, you had MULTIPLE players in the stands fighting fans, not holding people back.

    Notice how Khabib nor Danis were arrested or charged? They only went after each other, not fans.

    So, not sure where my “timeline” of events is wrong...

    Okay.

    What im saying is in my experience, being in the crowd at a sporting event provides an extremely limited view of the rest of the crowd other than directly across from you. ESPECIALLY when there is a big ring in the center, then you can really only see people across you from the top of the ring on.

    I know that cameras mounted well above the crowd provide better angles of viewing than any seat in any auditorium.

    Anyhow, not worth the debate.

    Conor is a douche and the other guy is overly sensitive...
