    Drake and LeBron James both took to social media to endorse McGregor around the time of 196 which only boosted the ratings for that event, now that hes lost do you guys expect him to receive the same support from the upper echelon of celebrity for 202?

    PS: I do strongly believe that these endorsements make a difference when casuals are deciding on whether or not they want to take time out of their saturday night to watch the event.

    That's great, but it doesn't mean shit in the outcome of a fight. I guess the extra exposure could be good for MMA, but only if the fans stick around.

    Strong belief deserves a more worthy focus.

    Maybe if the fight is rigged for Conor like the Finals were for LeBron 'About to be 2 and 5 in the Finals lol' James then he may have a shot.

    Most of those Hollywood fucks are more fickle than casual fans here on Sherdog.

    you mean the same demographic (single males between the ages of 18 and 25 with large amounts of disposable income) are the ones keeping track of what's "in" and making sure everyone around knows exactly what and how they're doing it? noooooo they're too busy buying yeezys and buying fake watches. not like most popular brands cater to that demographic not at all...

    Only endorsement that matters is ine given by Chuck F Norris. It's an auto-win.

    Mhm.

    You really think they'd have suspended Kyrie, Tristan Thompson or Kevin Love if they had been in the same situation Draymond was?

    Most celebrities I've heard through interviews on MMA dont really know what they're talking about.

    Lil wayne mentions MMA, Rampage Jackson, and other UFC related things in his raps but I dont think he could tell you stylistically who has the advantage between Nate or Conor or anything.
