Raptors Republic Android & iOS App

Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    Changing my mind now, but the retirement might have something to do with his irish sexual assault charge.

    wow Conor says he retiring out of nowhere.. I mean I guess I can't really blame him I don't know if he can beat Khabib and what's the point of going on when you have already set yourself up for life epically in a sport that has potential to really mess you up if you stuck around to long. all the troubles he has been getting in lately probably doesn't help either.. I still think he will probably return for 1 last big money fight. maybe Diaz #3?
    I think it is a negotiation tactic to get a share of ownership. If he is retired he probably grew the sports popularity more than anyone. I used to go to the same bar in Shanghai for every ppv. When conor was on the card it costs 200 to reserve the table, had a minimum spending per table, and every table was full. No conor there was me and my 5 buddies for bloody mary breakfast, and maybe two other tables.

    That karate-style stance in MMA is dangerous man..... I've never like how guys tend to keep their hands down when they get into that look. Honestly, he has never really looked the same since the Rory Macdonald fight. He played it safe against Woodley in both fights, got beat solidly by Till and then knocked out.

    I agree, and his age is up there now, so his reflexes aren't going to be as quick.

    but, he was solidly beating pettis until a back foot push off superman punch caught him square. Up to that point he hadn't seen the punch, and the extra like 6 inches from the push and stretch was enough to get through the distance he figured was safe.

    i hope his brain is ok, and he comes back healthy. I hope he can get one more run in because i like the traditional martial arts styles that succeed in mma. Same as miao. For me the kumate is alive.

    that was crazy. wonderboy was tearing him apart, and then bam.

    the 2 after shots might cause damage.

    Pretty meh card this week. Wonderboy to pummel pettis. I used to love pettis, but now i just see a quitter. Duke roufus' boys are all losing now.
    curtis blades is a pretty decent heavyweight, but the rest is meh. I think pena is more about the look than the result right now.

    out of the country and now i read cowboy vs raging al in ottawa. Fuck i would like to see that live.

    Dillashaw giving up his 135 pound belt after they found something in his piss for the January fight which was for the 125 belt ... seems weird.

    Edit: Nevermind, he's been suspended for a year.


    I don't think anyone is surprised that TJ was juicing ... pretty sure Cody and Faber both called it a long time ago ...
    A moraes/aljamain fight would be nice. I don't know why he vacated the belt after all the work he had to do to get it back. The ufc would have just made an interim belt and he would fight that guy when he gets back. Vacating means no ppv money, while he warns his shot again.

    That sport won't live through too many more of these. It was already a joke, it's just pathetic now.

    I was actually wondering about Masvidal after they started talking about a potential title fight. I mean, the guy's record is pretty mediocre but 4 of his last five losses have come via split decision and the other loss was a decision to Wonderboy. He hasn't been stopped in 10 years. He's a much better fighter than his record indicates....
    I like him

    Unless you were a Welterweight top contender, then you would, and you'd knock him out.

    How about Masvidal smacking Leon Edwards a couple times with his knuckles after the fight?

    Masvidal is legit "about that life" ... I would not fuck with that guy.
