    SAS is disgusted by the quitter Rigondeaux.



    Rigondeaux was a tremendously respected elite boxer, was there any backlash from this?

    SAS also regularly argues very impetuously with notable boxing trainer Teddy Atlas in his boxing commentary.

  5. That's seems to be SAS' MO and same with his former cohort Skip, even tho they might be on to something there they have to deliver it in a way that is controversial because that turns into ratings and he's getting paid for his personality as much as his analyst side so if he manages to get people talking then that's what makes the company happy.

    Goddamn it. This is our new reality isn't it? We're going to have this loud mouth prick creating controversy for clicks in MMA all the time, aren't we?

    Fuck.

    I cannot tell you how much I would love to see Masvidal deliver a three piece and a soda, right in his inflammatory mouth.

    To be fare, Rid did quit against Loma. He didn't want to get kod.

    Cowboy got kicked in the head, then ground and pounded, and received a broken orbital and nose. Smith is just too blinded by his jealousy of Conor.

    He didn't get backlash cuz Rigo did quit. Cowboy maybe didn't quit, but he certainly folded in the big fight again, repeating the very narrative that we're all aware of and that Cowboy even referenced himself before the fight. He absolutely shat the bed in an incredibly bad way. It was disgusting

    He's actually a bit of a prick. General rule in boxing is bet opposite of what he predicts.

    That's a tough assessment; I' never really looked at the predictions ; I'm not a boxing specialist but I like his take on a fight.
    Gambling is a Sin :cool:
    But that's a strong assessment, I'll keep an eye on his predictions !
