  • Dustin is a true great fighter... the guy is about the journey, ya money makes the world go round but I believe he’d fight Connor in a bar parking lot for no money!! I don’t know all the ins and outs but I believe his personal accomplishments are more important than the clout? Could be way off base but I think he’s a genuine person

So Dustin is not going to blow millions of dollars that he's going to get. B******* goes both ways in this case

They not only have mad respect for each other, but there's absolutely zero beef or anything personal between them. Just unsettled business, and it's just that, business, nothing else. Anything leading up to the fight that may or may not happen or be said is straight up acting man, all caaaappppp for the money and for the views. ... These dudes love each other. Probably more than most.
