    gregoo buddy..... im not sure if you have realized yet but you burned your own career with your infamous boxing circus... you burned your army of fans.... you have burned you trusting irish lads..... if you are not sure what i'm talking about have a look at the fight again.... you do not deserve to be in mma family with hard working fighters bleeding and sweating to get the pro card.... pouring their hart out and looking after their families.... worst of all you brought doubt and distrust to both boxing and mma..... for you my friend the only way back is a very long way around..... through charities and schools but not gold watches and sports cars
