    How does anyone on his team not fill him in that one of the top contenders in the UFC has branded "Cowboy" and is known as the cowboy??? Never understood this. Worst marketing ever. I cringe every time I hear the name said or see him in the hat.

    Anyone wearing a dorky hat as a gimmick should probably reconsider.

    Better Cowboy over Assassin, Pitbull or something else generic.

    He was a real life rodeo cowboy, maybe do the minimum amount of research numb nuts.
     
  11. He should have went with Alex "Rodeo Cowboy" Oliveira.

    He was a bullrider and his nickname was already Cowboy, no marketing there, it's just the way it was

    I knew that but that doesn't mean he has to market himself that way.
     
  15. I bought the movie. I am going with the KOd Ronda avatar until after the Ronda vs. Nunes fight and then I am going back to the Brad Pitt's Fury avatar.

    Why would Cerrone spend the money on a lawyer and the time in the court room when he already beat the guy and is the relevant one before and after their fight?
