    I've never doubted the fighter Conor McGregor but I never cared for the public figure Conor McGregor. Aside from the Khabib and Mayweather fights, he's always been game and love him or hate him he's entertaining.

    Anyway, I'm kinda rooting for him this time around. Something about Dustin changing tune and going for a money fight over a lock in a title shot doesn't sit well with me and I wouldn't mind seeing Conor do something spectacular. Anyone else in this boat and supporting Conor for perhaps the first time?

    I'm rooting for him but I was never a hater. I just didn't take the lightweight division seriously when I started watching MMA actively. I only cared for the heavyweights.

    Never rooted for him before, and not going to start now. Enjoy his fights though.

    As much as I like to bag on Conor with jokes and memes, Conor winning would be good for the sport as it brings more fans into MMA. And before you say we don't want casuals, isn't that how most of us started off as MMA fans? Remember TUF noobz were used as a diss on these forums, and now those TUF noobz are the veteran fans

    Eh I'm rather indifferent either way.

    Though I'm neither much of a fan or hater of either him or Dustin.
    Conor winning I think would spice up the division. Conor vs Do Bronx sounds like a fun fight.

    Poirier winning kinda solidifies the upper rankings.

    I’d like to see Conor win just to bring some excitement back to the sport. MMA has been boring as hell lately.

    Not a fan, but his fights are always fun whether he wins or loses.

    Bad for the sport? He's been the most interesting fighter to watch for years, even most of the haters agree to that

    Nobody has brought more fans or money to the sport than Conor McGregor

    I like poirier, and I was a mcgregor hater back in the day, mostly because of his nuthuggers. But MMA is more entertaining when he has success.
