KevinAlbach ,

Thank you for all the content! Im a fan from the Philippines!

John Kavanagh teased during his interview with Ariel Helwani that Conor trained mostly orthodox during this training camp. If this is the case and John is not just playing mind games, how good do you think he will look against Dustin? Having said that it seems like he is really preparing to fight against our national hero Manny Pacquiao, how good or bad do you think of an idea will it be to fight Manny orthodox?

Ja Rule so Coole ,

Question

Alright lads, great show.

Which of the following would have the best case for being the GOAT? Please rank:

-Demetrious Johnson if he gets the win against Cejudo in the second fight.
-Anderson Silva if he retired after the Bonnar win.
-Jon Jones if the judges gave the win to Reyes.
-Daniel Cormier if he retired after the Lewis win.
-Fedor Emelianenko if he retired after the Rogers fight.
-Conor McGregor if he wins the 170lb belt.
-Israel Adesanya if he wins 205lb and heavyweight belts.
-Tony Ferguson if he beat Khabib instead of losing to Gaethje.
-BJ Penn if he retired after KOing Matt Hughes.

Cheers.
