Canelo/GGG officially cancelled. Alvarez and the Golden Boy camp are trying to spin this as GGG ducking the fight, and I don't even think most Mexican fans are buying it. Billy Joe Saunders has suddenly come up injured, and I don't even think most UK fans are buying it. Golovkin's options for May 5 are looking like some guy, some guy, maybe some other guy. What a shitshow.

I'll file that in my list of combat sports fly-on-the-wall moments alongside the PRIDE yakuza story breaking, Sonny Liston cornering Cus D'Amato, and Ali any time he was alone.

The real killer, whoever GGG ends up fighting, they probably can't put it on PPV without drawing a buyrate to rival the likes of WCW Greed.

so, uh, I'm not really sure what the fuck this is about, but apparently conor mcgregor attacked a bus? something like that?

I don't actually care unless the ideal outcome results and conor ends up in rizin fighting baruto.

missing Sven because he would have a read on how many angles Conor and his entourage could get sued from.

Should I assume that this was a scripted thing to make sure that an aging McGregor stays in the limelight?

It's always possible I guess. But there are too many different people involved and too many potential angles of liability for me to cry work on this one.

Yeah, I totally understand why people would assume it's a work, because the whole thing is utterly ridiculous.

But no, I think Conor is just a violent asshole. He's done plenty of dumb shit in the past, but I don't think he can bounce back from this one as easily.

It's all in your perspective. "Rich man assumes he is immune to personal responsibility" is not really such a shocking headline in 2018.

Apparently this incident has cancelled Chisea/Pettis and Borg/Moreno do to injuries they sustained during this incident. It also almost cancelled Joanna/Rose, as Rose just got out of the way of getting hurt and was shaken up. I don't think the UFC would ruin their card for a publicity stunt.

IIRC the vigorish on WME's purchase debt is north of 8%. The Fertittas continue to be the smartest guys in Vegas.

If there is anyone on this planet who I would believe would get it in his head to beat up public transportation, it would be McGregor, frankly.

If we're currently living in a Hunter S. Thompson novel, that would explain so much

"last night he killed a subway" is a sentence of such quiet power and beauty that it passes unnoticed in the book as a whole. I don't know if they ever made em as good as HST.

journeyman fighter Rod Salka has long been known and ironically loved by boxing heads for his general hopelessness, but last night may have put the capstone on his career: he came out rocking red, white, and blue trunks with a brick wall pattern and the slogan "AMERICA 1ST" on the waistband.

his Mexican opponent, Francisco Vargas, administered six rounds of one-sided ass-whipping before Salka quit on his stool.

Rocky IV perhaps offers us an instructive example.

The massively overpriced BJJ instructional weekend circuit calls to you, Vitor. Please listen.

Default What the fuck happened to mma while i was at work?

Meanwhile Rocky Pennington needs to fire her entire corner for making her go out there for round 5 after she quit on her stool.

Because the drama can't stop in this feud for more than about two weeks at a time, now both sides of GGG/Canelo 2 are posturing over how to divvy up the money for a September fight. Golden Boy wants 65-35 in Canelo's favor, GGG wants a 50-50 split. Oscar de la Hoya is currently saying the fight is off, which is certainly bullshit at the present time. Whether it ends up being true depends on which side is willing to blink and go back to fighting JAGs on premium cable. Sweet Science of Bruising!
