    A hypothetical press conference for a hypothetical Ferguson-Covington bout would be the cringiest moment in the history of the human race.

    there's legit like, 2 people who can trash talk in the UFC total. Maybe not even that. These guys should stick to fighting.

    If the UFC promoted these guys correctly, they wouldn't need to do much.

    There's kinda a difference between the two.

    Now Tony doesn't make sense at all and say stupid shit but you can tell that Tony isn't being fake about it. He says what's on his mind.

    However, Pussyington is just not being real or don't have the charisma to make his words stick. He's stutters, looks uncomfortable when someone is dishing out on him, steal other people material and don't seem confident in what he's saying.

    Plus Tony don't pay women to do promos or back down when someone confronts him (Werdum)

    The biggest MMA organization in the world has a promotion-less promoter. Sad.

    For some reason, I feel less annoyed when Tony talks shit. Cause he's just a 100% weirdo, through and through, and he's saying what pops into his head.

    When Colby talks I get the feeling that he has rehearsed the lines in a mirror for hours at a time. "Maybe if I insult people and call them nerds it will erase the pain of being bullied for being a nerd all through my childhood"

    Tony's naturally like that, As cringe as it may be. Colby just started doing it one day out of the blueand he looks like a 12 year old.

    Ufc thinks that giving fighters “airtime” is synonymous with promoting them.

    There is always an interesting angle to be found, an interesting story to tell, a better narrative to follow. The ufc doesn’t try hard enough to promote, they just showcase a fighters life through the lens of what THEY think will get ratings but what they don’t notice is that by aiming towards that low brow demographic , you aren’t aiming your promotion videos and media content toward those that have more of a sophisticated taste in docu-biodramas. The ufc sells it with a reality show feel imo. Pride did it well. They could make you identify,empathize, or relate to even the lowliest of mid tier fighters thanks to their creative video promos.

    Colby is just your typical MAGA Troll on Facebook, we've all seen it before. Boring. Just say/do whatever for shock value. Next he will come out as a Brony and Juggalo - anything to make someone cringe and say "Yuck, dude!". We all know one of those guys "smell my finger". Worse ever, he wants to impress people... like... "If I were rich, I would also have pornstar threesomes. You aren't any particular quality, you're just a rich dweeb". This dude is like Eric Cartman with less maturity.

    T-Ferg is more natural with his words and tries to come off real instead of as a caricature. However, he also comes off as someone who doesn't have a lot of interesting things to say. He's the guy at a party that when he talks it's all either "it happened!" stories, or long drunk tangents that leaves everyone thinking "okay dude, please pass out drunk now...". I liken him to Kyle except instead of giving "here's why I am right" speeches, he just rants on and on.
