No doubt, I agree. He is nowhere near as good as his career earnings and bank balance would suggest…but that is the point I’m making. He made hundreds of thousands of fans, both cultural and casual believe he was that good by enacting the WWE style of marketing and landing a lucky punch against Aldo. He didnt deserve to have his name uttered in the same sentence as Mayweather’s yet landed a massive purse PPV against him.
This doco shows that he was smart enough to exploit stupid people well before he was a household name. He wins.
was smart enough to exploit stupid people
Yep, it’s ridiculous.
Loved seeing Khabib flatten him then make him tap.
Like you said, a personality fighter that saw others do it with some success - play the heel - Tito Ortiz, Chael Sonnen to name a few. Moderate fight abilities with some easy match ups as well as some luck (Aldo fight, Alvarez fight - what was he thinking? no game plan whatsoever.)
His fans are just as bad as him. Ego through the roof.
I won’t watch the doco because I cannot stand him. Just a goof who is an embarrassment to the sport. The fans who believed his hype are bad also. I was at the pub for the Mayweather fight and I overheard people saying they put up to around $3000 on Connor to get the first round knock out LOL
@LeichhardtTiger Norsemen was a great recommendation. I loved it.
Just found it myself. Thought I’d check here before recommending, but now I realise Im not the only one with a weird sense of humour. Funny as buggery. I give it 4.5 prosthetic hands out if five.
