MMA Depressed-us: UFC 229 special - Khabib vs. Tibau & Mayweather vs. McGregor

New, 2 comments

Zane Simon, Connor Ruebusch, & Phil Mackenzie are back to watch the worst fights they can find. Focusing on Pride, Strikeforce, WEC, and the UFC. This time we’re watching a UFC 229 special featuring Khabib vs Tibau and Mayweather vs McGregor.

UFC 229 is in the books and we... uh... totally recorded this show right after watching the event, and not at all last week. Definitely. Either way, it seems as good a time as any for a Conor McGregor & Khabib Nurmagomedov themed Depressed-us. So we’re watching the worst fights we can find for both men. Being that they’re both incredibly good, dominating fighters that’s actually something of a challenge. None of their fights are really, actually bad.

But we’re watching Khabib’s sophomore UFC effort against Gleison Tibau (a fight many thought he arguably lost), and Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor. Yes, not technically an MMA fight, and yes an unexpectedly decent performance from the ‘Irishman,’ but also a cartoonish spectacle that resulted in a harsh beating by the end of it.

As always, if you enjoyed the show, give us a ‘like’ and subscribe to our podcast over on SoundCloud and iTunes under the MMA Nation banner.
