    Why is UFC not pushing a legit british fighter like Aspinall instead of this clown?

    I’m not particularly impressed with his skills but he seems to have enough Charisma to be a star. Wish him the best moving forward, best avoid big hitters moving forward unless he improves defensively.

    I don't think so. He's going to be very popular and people will lose interest when they realize he's a very ordinary fighter.

    What I saw is that he is very hittable and even was buckled . That's not a good sign with heavy hitters in the divsion.

    And I don't even know how his ground game is either.

    He's already more of a marketable british fighter than Leon Edwards

    5.8 million LADS saw him get roasted by Bisping.

    Why are all these 'marketable' fighters such geese..

    The mainstream has such terrible taste..

    Watched some interviews with this guy.. just more of the same, "I'm the chosen one, it's my destiny, I'm just different than everyone else.." bla bla bla

    Really don't see the appeal..

    some fighters are just unmarketable. Aspinall's boring ass is a good example

    You can buy views, I doubt he made that many after one fight.

    UFC should just have a fake fight promotion, something like pro wrestling where they can promote dudes like this and have them win all the time.

    He's a BJJ black belt with serious hands and personality. Aspinal is a good fighter but kind of boring. It's not rocket science. Also, Paddy was big BEFORE coming to the UFC. Easy af marketing and money maker for the UFC.

    Because they know how to market themselves. UFC only know how to market fighters that already have the public appeal.
