Have you ever taken martial arts? One of the main aspects of any traditional martial art is respect and humility, he lacks both.

Bruce Lee was a true martial artist, McGregor is a decent fighter with a a gimmick and a bad attitude.

gim·mick

ˈɡimik/

noun

a trick or device intended to attract attention, publicity, or business.

By definition you're admitting that the McGregor character isnt tge real Conor. You get to see that after his fights. He always seems humble and respectful in his post fight octagon interviews and in tge post fight presser.

The reality is this: the UFC is an entertainment promotion. Americans aren't generally taught the moral values that are taught in martial arts. For the most part they are irrational, disrespectful fanatics that dont care about discipline and humility. If they were Mighty Mouse would be as big as Conor and Ronda.

Not only that, but the ufc doesnt have a union. These guys will not be taken care of when they start experiencing the long term effects of getting your brain rattled; CTE, dementia etc.

Conor has acknowledged these 2 points time and time again. I respect that.

His gimmick is just an exaggeration of his normal disrespectful attitude. He lacks respect and humility for the most part, I don't care how complementary he is of his ballet instructor/side piece Ido or what people in his camp try to say to make him seem like a good guy. Post fight statements mean nothing when all you do is turn around and continue to spew the same ignorant garbage about the same opponent thereafter.

As far as Americans not understanding that moral values are key components in martial arts, I don't disagree. Fact is, MMA gyms are filled with idiots that want to learn how to fight while not viewing it as martial arts. And a fair number of the gyms they attend do nothing but perpetuate this. Same goes for the basic fan that swallows all the WWE shenanigans sold by the UFCs worst characters.

Reminds me of the idiots I saw at amateur shows 14+ years ago just yelling "eff him up" with no regard for technique. Plenty of constant posters in here are exactly that.

If being disrespectful made you the money Conor makes you'd be disrespectful too

post #20168 of 34104
I always thought at his core conor was respectful/humble.


you see glances of it here and there when the real him pops up....IE after the aldo loss he gave aldo mad respect, same with chad, saw a glimpse of it in the nate presser....


hes got the black hat on right now, and he look damn good in it.

Like I said, I don't see the point in judging anyone that I do not know personally. Especially if all you see is a magnified version of an entertainer. Not a person in this thread knows who Conor McGregor truly is, or any of the UFC fighters on the roster.

I ignore the WWE shenanigans and enjoy the true test of martial arts combat. I leave all the other extra drama to the fanatics.

Conor is a entertainer .... He is selling his fights.

 

As much trash as he talked, during the UFC I personally gained more respect. The initial speech he gave to the fighters was real. Dude has no filter and speak the truth. He straight told Faber about TJ and company .... When Faber tried to punk him about fighting him, Conor straight told Faber, I wanted to pound his *** but Dana didn't want to and he almost didn't do the show.

 

Dude during Diaz conference admitted he respected Diaz because he thought Diaz was real and not a ***** .... so again dude is real. He toyed with Aldo, got on his head, predicted how the fight would end because of studying videos and he delivered. We can't get mad because he has been KOing dudes effortlessly .. Hell that's what we loved about Tyson the brutal KO power and his trash talking... Not sure what's the difference ... 

 

Again, I think that at some point or another Conor will probably get exposed on the ground, but until then he has been walking the walk .....

IMO more fighters would be like Conor if they could talk like Conor, but they can't. It's a special skill and special wit to do the things he does

Not saying I agree with his antics or anything but I see other fighters trying to talk smack and promote now and it's just like, wow, you're terrible at it

Glimpses of humility followed by more disparaging remarks and insults mean nothing.

In due time, he'll look like a fool just as Rousey did. Only difference being that he's a guy, so people won't take it easy on him like they did with the UFC's white trash crown princess.
post #20174 of 34104
Yeah, Conor is exactly like Ronda.

Except instead of flipping people off, not shaking hands, and telling people "don't cry" after wins... he gives them props and talks about how much he respects them.

Don't forget he isn't going to try to off himself after getting beaten while trying to trademark "Eff them all"

Conor running the game in every aspect. Floyd Mayweather perfected it. Conor just better hope he never loses, so far he's put in the work ethic of someone that doesn't want to lose all this.

I don't think to this day there's been anything more satisfying in MMA than this...

Didn't even realize Glory was on tonight, but the only fight worth watching is Marcus vs. Levin and they should be fighting full Thai rules.  A guy I trained with for several months in Thailand was supposed to fight on the card until he got injured either during or after his last fight for Lion fight.

 

Doubt it is any accident Glory scheduled their event the same night as Lion Fight.

 

If you feel like watching any of Lion Fight, the Topic vs. Wielzen fight should be the best one of the event.

Man the last 5 pages been too much back n forth. Can yall dead it and get back to the highlight ko we gon see tomorrow
post #20183 of 34104
I'm pumped for this fight today I might be the minority and go with bisbing he's been talking so much ish for a while about steroids and silva.

As far as Nate and Conor I'm looking forward to this one but I really wanted cowboy in This one bit Conor is a business man watch him take out Nate and go straight for Nick. This guy makes chess moves not checkers.

Idk about you guys but watching thre pressed it seemed like Nate was out of it with his dumbass comments. Nate isn't as quick he just kept saying MFer the whole time and it got old real quick.

Media making Conor vs diaz isn't a racist thing is just hilarious he called him a cholo gangster to pump up this fight and even so it's the fight game not big 4 of sports.

Lmfao Fabre getting a shot is comical dude is way past his prime and Conor would eat him in the cage and in the mic...worse than he did on tuf..favor had nothing on him and it was wild to see Conor calling airing out the dirty laundry of TAM on the show and even predicted the whole "snake in the grass scenario"
post #20184 of 34104

Gotta give it to Conor. His wit and quickness with his comebacks and ability to stir **** up is phenomenal.
