  1. Valentina has been training all summer for Montano, Joanna has been holidaying and following business opportunities, of course she needs more than 3 weeks to prepare. UFC should be wanting their fighters to be in the best condition in the cage, instead they just want two bodies

  2. They should have found 2 more middleweights, and then made an 8 man tournament for the interim middleweight title. Throwback to the old days. Problem solved!

  3. Nate Diaz v Conor McGregor II — 1.65 million PPV buys
    Brock Lesnar v Frank Mir II — 1.6 million PPV buys
    Conor McGregor v Nate Diaz — 1.5 million PPV buys
    Jose Aldo v Conor McGregor — 1.4 million PPV buys
    Eddie Alvarez v Conor McGregor — 1.3 million PPV buys

    Just to give people an idea of the top 5 highest UFC PPV's of all time. 3 million is way over-reaching.

  4. I completely agree with dana on the 165 lb weight class I hope they don't put it in. I don't want ufc to become like boxing and have a million weight class with three pounds in between them.

  5. Dana lying as usual. I'll bet ANYBODY here it doesn't do 1.5 million buys for a thousand! Any takers?! Dana always lies every bloody fight. Oh god now he's saying his whiskey is "killen it" LOLOL what a lying piece of shit!

  6. please this fight will barley hit 1.5 mill ppv buys. This idiot lied to everyone and said conor vs floyd hit 6.5 mill and it actually hit 4.3 telling the truth is pointless to this bald faggot

  7. "We have enough weight classes." What a joke. Never has the UFC ever desperately needed new weight classes like it does now especially with A LOT of fighters missing weight lately.

  8. Dana: "We have enough weight classes…" + "…these guys are gonna start hardcore cuttin' weight gettin' ready for the fight."

    I don't know if these statements are 100% contradictory, but they certainly sound odd being said in the same breath.

  9. All the Youtube views were from Russia and Muslims who do not buy PPV lol.

    I'd say they should be happy if it hits 2 million. Dana is trying to speak 3 million into existence. He's trying to give the perception to the fans that this fight is massive and will do huge numbers to get more people interested.

    If he said something like, this fight will only do 1 mill buys, it loses the big fight aura.
