    I’m unaware who took the belt off of him since Khabib’s last fight???

    Khabib new interim champ imo. He beats conor to win the fake belt then fights the real champ in the winner of ferg vs pettis. Not this bs belt that khabab was gifted from dana for being from dagestan when he stripped ferguson.

    First logon in a long time just to chime in here. I remember when Budden found Barry's profile on one of those sugar daddy sites. Just incredible.

    Oh yeah!! Wasn't it like a balding dude standing next to a bicycle with some weird thing saying he'd like to be a sugar daddy or something?

    I feel like Derrick Lewis always finds the most absurd way to win

    I thought EZ alluded to the fact that Barry is actually another poster on here.

    Really? I missed that. I gotta know who it is LOL. It's the most legendary alt account ever if true.

    Me??

    Ha ha man I have nowhere near the patience to stick with a gag that long. Plus back when Barry made the switch from "the cooler" to acting like he was a sharp I didn't understand the act at all. Now I kinda get it a bit more as he's stuck with it in a legendary way. Not to rip myself, but quite frankly I'm just not that clever honestly. Or at least I don't have the foresight to play a long game like he has. Not even close.

    But in a way I guess I'm kinda flattered if people thought it was me ha ha.

    I remember EZ replying to some deer-in-the-headlights newbie who had fallen in Barry's web once. He told him it was probably a troll, but an extremely committed one. EZ didn't seem to really know either. At that time, anyways.

    EZ did say that he was pretty sure that Barry’s persona was another regular poster a while back but didn’t give a name. I kinda had a hunch that he was talking about MMAGoodfella, but not 100% sure.

    Rewatching Lewis-Browne, I feel like Volkov should be like -500.

    I agree. It's a terrible match up for Lewis.

    Agree gents, just finished tape and went 4u Volkov -175, which is a huge HW bet for me. Been waiting for a good spot to fade Lewis with a big bet and think this is a great time, Volkov should be -300 and there will hopefully be an easy hedge.

    Devil's advocate here, but I'd have some concern with Volkov. If Lewis gets on top of Volkov, it could be a lot of trouble. Couple that with the fact that Volkov doesn't typically get quick finishes and Lewis remaining dangerous throughout a fight, I do see potential for an upset.

    I hear ya and 5 rounds would make this a much harder bet for the sole fact it gives Lewis an extra 10 minutes to fluke his way into another win, but holy shit even at HW how many times can you almost accidentially get top position. His wrestling is awful and Volkov seems intelligent enough to keep range on the feet.

    Joe Budden came back a lot of times with new names. He rubbed some people the wrong way, but he made me laugh. I had no issues with him.

    Hmm...Kowboy Karl huh. Could you...nah never mind.
