  1. PBC is way to professional in a way it’s good. But you have to let fighters be them walk out with there music entourage and let then talk shit to each other. The best fighters you can put on PBC Is Broner, Garcia, Thurnman. In they don’t like Broner being Broner that’s what I hate the most. I love the dancing in unprofessional stuff Broner do it keeps me entertained.
