  • The fact he's not the least bit salty about the donation going to a different charity, but is simply happy that the money is going to any charity after all, really shows Dustin's strength of character. Hope he knocks petty McGregor out again in July.

  • 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.
