    I disagree.

    There's a good possibility the world tour shows were more entertaining than the actual event will be.

    Hopefully not, but it is possible.

    That is a great promo interview. He sure had some fun with it.

    im not talking about the fighters... im talking about people like "Ariel Helwani" and "Luke Thomas"... i was basically poking fun at how ridiculous this world tour is... yet the fight media has to commentate seriously on it

    too much corporate cash grab on this one... its like watching the WWE, something i respect but cant stand .... i was kind of making a joke about how silly it is but yet theres so much money for everyone involved they take it seriously... Brendan schaub is like a little school girl with the mic

    I was rather saddened watching the LA show first and then Toronto. It was the exact same thing both times, just with a tiny bit of local flavor thrown in. I'm sure it's exciting for the people on the ground, but I don't know if I can stand to watch any more of the promos.

    Who care's, really, why is money a factor? More power to them, it's good business in my book.

    i have no clue what the actual fight will be like..... i was saying that "i feel bad for people that have to watch every single part of this world tour in order to report on it accurately" I understand promotions are scripted and they stick to the game plan because its entertainment.... Im loving some of the stuff that has come out of this already.... MMA reporters probably love their job... I personally have not been able to watch an entire conference... maybe they love watching every second of it.... different strokes different folks.. i can only bring my own opinion into the domain of conversation

    im 100% in tune with with your point of view... everyone is getting rich off this, more power to them... its good business for sure..... just me personally .... it may end up having adverse effects in the long run anything is possible

    The whole point of the world tour circus was to pump up pay per view numbers.

    Thats why both Floyd jr and Leonard Ellerbe were smiling most of the time no matter what trash talk Conor was spewing.

    They know he's got people saying "maybe I will pay for that fight" and it will make them more $ .

    They know its all part of the fun.

    Remember when James Toney stepped into the Octagon?

    This is going to be kind of like that, but in reverse, and spread out over maybe 6-8 rounds or something.

    Definitely not on the A-Team.

    What I loved about the above interview is that that is exactly how I felt he was taking it all. On one hand trash talk. But look at his personality to it all. Just sarcasm and smiling.

    149.5 and 153 at weigh in.

    Conor will probably hydrate to close to 170.

    Not sure if thats a plus or minus.....

    Did you notice that Floyd had his high heeled sneakers on in the face off after the weigh ins? That gave me a chuckle, insight to the man's soul! LOL

    Saw that, self conscious.

    Conor just might have got in his head a bit...

    Showtime confirms it is going to delay the fight until it figures out its PPV issues

    And that's a wrap, money in the 10th round

    interesting enough fight.
    don't think it was a $100 fight, but glad I was able to see it on youtube today.
    obvious that Conor isn't used to going so long and hadn't been mentally preparing for 12 rounds.

    Is there really any such thing as a $100 fight ?

    My answer would be no.

    I'll watch it on YouTube later on.

    I heard he did better than most expected.
