faber is a midget but he's loved and grew his star power by not taking bums to decisions or waiting until it was totally safe and the crowd was asleep from boredom to go for an exciting finish. This isn't a post on goat or rankings or skill level. Fans are clear what they want to see; they want excitement and charisma. Rousey 1 rd demolitions Conor's wars w Diaz and explosive ko's Gsp's marquee 'it' factor ( his fights weren't exciting but he had some type of appeal that for some reason when he fought made people feel like they were walking onto an exotic car dealership or something. Nick Diaz attitude Fedor, jones, Andersons destructions of elite fighters and sense of invincibility Mm uses a safety first style until virtually all risk is removed then he goes for the finish. There's like, no excitement in his fights for the average paying fan. No 'war' aspect that Nate Diaz, gaetche, Conor, fedor, and others bring to the table when they fight. The only thing worse than watching a 5'2" man fight is watching his fight safe, in addition to watching him fight safe against a Ray Borg caliber fighter for 4.5 Rds. It's not UFC fault that mm lacks the fighting style, charisma, or marquee factor of other fighters. He could start helping himself by going out there and violently destroying Ray Borg within two Rds, like Conor does to fighters 39947473 Times better than Ray Borg, in 1/10th the time. What does mm expect w his performances against Tim Elliot, Ray Borg and Wilson reis, when other fighters are giving us wars fought at just as high a skill level against better opponents. No amount of promotion is going to salvage or make us care about his performance against Tim Elliot or Rds 1-4 vs Borg.
