He has legions of fanatics who believe he wins even when he quits and gives up his back to get choked out by a short-notice opponent. There are large numbers of haters who want to see him lose even when he smokes so called Underground Kings like Eddie Alvarez. Then there are a minority of neutral fans, like myself, who do recognize his talent but are not convinced that his record matches the adulation he gets, and they want to see him prove himself against more fighters with better records than 3-and-something in the UFC. Basically, he has the entire MMA community and even some boxing and other sports fans waiting for him to fight again. That is the sweetest spot to be if you are a combat athlete. You need a powerful group that backs you no matter what. A triggered and cringed hypnotized by hate group who want to see you lose. Finally, the neutral reasonable group that recognize your talent, but can't make put on the same pedestal as the GOATs because your record doesn't reflect the same pedigree. This is the same spot where Mayweather spent the second of half of his career, and generated billions of dollars for boxing and the state of Nevada.
