Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Thanks to the NY Daily News, I now know this exists: A wax statue of Conor McGregor. It looks as if the artist were looking at a UFC video game rendering of McGregor, instead of the man himself. The statue was unveiled today at Dublin’s National Wax Museum.
Perhaps I shouldn’t hate. It is, after all, not the worst sculpture made in an athlete’s honor.
McGregor joined his friend and fellow rich athlete, Cristiano Ronaldo, as fellow celebrities with awful sculptures in their honor.
Speaking of McGregor, here he is speaking on Malignaggi’s weak mind, his coaches, and his baby son.
Why? What purpose does this serve?
NAC wants the gloves afterwards to "study" them, will return them but they will be cut up #MayweatherMcGregor— Mike Dyce (@mikedyce) August 16, 2017
This narration is beyond funny. Hey, he asked for it.
I keep telling you all to bet money on The Money Team.
Conor McGregor is now a +325 against Floyd Mayweather (-450). McGregor is now less of an underdog than Maidana, Cotto, Judah, Berto & Ortiz.— Andreas Hale (@AndreasHale) August 16, 2017
King Mo’s insight on the smaller gloves is not as optimistic for McGregor
2oz makes a difference.— King Mo (@KingMoFH) August 16, 2017
nope. His body shots will hurt that much more. Connor has no infighting game. Thatll lead to his downfall.— King Mo (@KingMoFH) August 16, 2017
This referee is known for letting boxers get rough in the clinch
Worth noting re: ref Byrd, who was selected: Kovalev's team complained he let the first Ward fight get too physical last year. https://t.co/wIsKSlEe7z— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) August 16, 2017
Max Holloway is just here to point out inconsistencies in the narrative
This is why Khabib can’t fight Ferguson for the interim lightweight title- he suplexed too many bears and gave himself a hernia
According to life.ru at the beginning of July Khabib underwent small hernia surgery - all went well but that's why he can't fight in Oct.— Bartek Stachura (@Lowkingpl) August 16, 2017
A timeless Anderson Silva greeting
This is a great matchup. Matt Brown against Diego Sanchez has potential to be awesome.
