    He's just too plain as a human being, he's coming after almost cartoonesque HW fighters like Brock, Overeem, Hunt, Big Country, Struve, Mir... or legends like Big Nog, Fedor, Randy Couture... Cain, Werdum and Cigano all had their share of big fights with big names before becoming champion

    Stipe just went under the radar and then boom! he's the champ

    Also, he's in the shadow of the McGregor era

    Stipe used to be underappreciated due to his perceived lack of power, but he's fixed that on his current winning streak. I feel like if he defends the title one more time, his drawing power will skyrocket because at that point he'll have broken the HW title defense record and he'll officially be in the GOAT HW discussion.

    No

    it is that he is a good guy, who like you write has a work in a community (paid by the tax payers (or tax rob victims) where he now is very famous. If Stipe started doing a Nate Diaz or Conor act by talkin shit and behaving badly in media to sell fights he could lose his work as fire fighter.

    Despite not talking shit he is not boring as a fighter outside of the ring, just watch embedded episodes.

    There were already civilizations in the Americas prior to the arrival of Europeans.

    No one appeared suddenly out of thin air to occupy a land. All people have fought to take or keep what they have. Interesting that warrior cultures are so revered unless they actually win a war.
