That fine will really crush him  

Think it could have been 100x that, but they have been very clever with the timings of the "suspension" so that the purse and advertising revenue from the PPV, will be at its highest!

Well he is the UFC cash cow so this is of no surprise at all. 

The thing I rate most about him is his mouth not his fighting. 

Fair play to him but if you look back when the fighters were literally getting Peanuts, they must look on at the new breed with a degree of jealousy. 

My favourite ever fighter was Evan Tanner sadly now dead.

He could win, without even having to step foot in the 8, one of the purest cross mma's legends, there ever was 😉

There has been rumours of him and rape doing the rounds for a few months now. As is usually the case money talks

In reality, McGregor barely did anything wrong, well apart from getting beasted for 4 rounds- Dana White is a known wrongun JonJones has tested positive for banned substances like 3 times now and he is still probably gonna be able to fight DC and become champ champ. McGregor is universally know in the MMA world as a massive gear head

Poker buddy have you seen the amazing documentary about him? 

"Once I was a Champion" 

If not watch it buddy. 

He was plagued by mental health problems I use to follow him on social media and even had a few chats with him. 

The stuff he used to do like the infamous "I'm going to buy a boat and sail it around the world"

And obviously his untimely death in the Desert, again more questions than answers.

I also remember one of his fights where he showed so so much empathy, he won but was so concerned about his felled opponent. 

His choice of hair style at times was debatable though lol.

Yes, I have, one of the TGC resident "always" watching something somewhere members!!

Was a while back I ripped it, so now you have mentioned it again, another viewing will not hurt 😉

Love the stance, attitude and rare and very real skill set he trained so very hard, to encompass in his varied careers.

I had the, what I can only call privilege of watching not only the warm ups, but the pre match local eliminations, that led to the Port matches when he won in Tokyo, think it was 97-98, got some photos and some vhs of the trip somewhere, also saw him in Brogans cage, before one of the local NV casino matches, but never got to say hello, which in the world of any decent mma fighter, was one of the hardest things to do, nowadays its all SM rubbish and everyone "thinks" they know everyone and everything!

Also used to love, Herring but one of my real old skool fav's, was kotc Hoffman, would loved to have seen him and Tanner live in the same octo!!

All the fighters of today's version of the sport, would not stand a chance of getting cageside, let alone in one, with the fighters of yesteryear, they have about as much respect as Gemma Collins has, for the Ice on ITV UK 🙂

I would love to see the pic or video is that possible? 

Yes years ago it was very different I didn't like him as a fighter but Tank Abbot told some amazing stories about fighting for a few dollars, also "Gumby"  Jeremy Horn I think he record was crazy the amount of fights he had, and that was before the official stats. 

He used to fight literally anyone. 

The list is plentiful I never know who the GOAT is however as they are many contenders to the crown and many different weight classes, saying that some of the Grand Prix events were crazy.
