  • Dustin is a true great fighter... the guy is about the journey, ya money makes the world go round but I believe he’d fight Connor in a bar parking lot for no money!! I don’t know all the ins and outs but I believe his personal accomplishments are more important than the clout? Could be way off base but I think he’s a genuine person

  • Dustin's being the nice guy because he doesn't want to say across word against the cross action. He opens his mouth that little brat in Ireland will start his threats of stopping the fight again. So Dustin is not going to blow millions of dollars that he's going to get. B******* goes both ways in this case

  • If Conor loser this one then as an MMA fighter he will no longer be the Connor of the past that people are still paying to see waiting for it to be like the past. He did awesome things befokijg champ champ and eliminating his original division plus everything before the UFC and then to earn so much. He is a legend. But this fight is pivotal.

  • Every one saying that Connor dissed Dustin, and "fook your foundation" and that Dustin is just playing the mind games by thanking Connor for the donation, you're a fool, Connor and Dustin are like legit homies. They not only have mad respect for each other, but there's absolutely zero beef or anything personal between them. Just unsettled business, and it's just that, business, nothing else. Anything leading up to the fight that may or may not happen or be said is straight up acting man, all caaaappppp for the money and for the views. ... These dudes love each other. Probably more than most.
