UFC 229 Tinder Predictions: Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov

We all know that you can go on Twitter and see other fan’s picks and predictions before a fight card, but we figured it was time to try something new!

Myself (Alex Scaffidi) and Esha Chanel took to Tinder, a popular dating app, to ask users for their opinions on the upcoming UFC 229 main event fight between Conor McGregor (21-3) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0).

We began this experiment on October 4th and it lasted 34 hours. The results were interesting to say the very least.

Below you will see a select batch of the conversations we had on this app. At the end of the article, you will find some of the totals to sum up our findings from the experiment. Hope you all enjoy this!

CONNOR… CONNER?

Here we have a three-time offender… this was no accident. Extra points taken off for the off-theme GIF. Having a Conor McGregor GIF sign-off may have saved this one.

Just remember who to thank when Khabib Nurmagomedov submits Conor McGregor via rear-naked choke in the fourth round.

Massive points deducted for the misspell, but we will take it.

The ‘Casuals’

We don’t like the word, some of them admittedly do not follow the sport. You better believe they are tuning in for this fight though!
