    Many fans do not like Conor because of the way he presents himself and seemingly, treats others.

    Other fans will not like him because they view his fan base as delusional.

    Others may simply just not like him.

    Which is perfectly fine.

    However, love him or hate him, as a fighter, I would hope everyone respects him.

    He makes bold predictions. Not always 100% accurate, but pretty damn close. And to add to it, he delivers. Conor has not lost one UFC fight.

    He has made it to the top of the featherweight division in less than 3 years. He has recently beaten, whom many considered the #1 pound for pound fighter in the world in Jose Aldo.....and it only took 13 seconds.

    That takes a career to do for many fighters.

    ALl the talk surrounding Floyd picking and choosing his fights when the timing was right, but then you havev Conor McGregor dethroning the former number one pound for pound champion and then signing to a fight a champion in his prime a weight class above just months later.

    The entertainment he is providing us fans should be celebrated and appreciated, not shit upon.

    We, as fight fans, are wreaking the rewards of being loyal to the sport we love as we get to see this young man make history.

    Conor Bless

    I don't care about his persona, his predictions or his prefight BS.
    I just care whether he delivers in the cage on fight night, he does & I'm cool with that.

    Seriously TS... Go find me ten posts that aren't pure trash, where anyone has said they don't respect his accomplishments inside the octagon.

    This is fucking rubbish, man. And it's not just his delusion fans. There are some that feel the need to White Knight a position that's never been taken.

    He makes the UFC look like the WWE and insults other fighter's pay, making the sport look like it's only about the money, and that it would be a waste of time for other fighters to stick around considering their dirt pay. On top of this, he arrives at pre-fight conferences coked out, insults fighters and their families, and thinks he's allowed to dictate what goes on in the UFC.

    This is what his fanboys find inspirational.

    His actions have always spoken louder than words to me.

    5.53 Significant Strikes Landed Per Minute
    6 passes on 4 Take down attempts
    1 decision in 21 fights (when he blew out his ACL)
    17 KO/TKO in 21 fights
    Never turns down a fight
    Seeks out brutal competition
    Is never in a boring fight...ever
    Instead of complaining about fighter pay he takes control and delivers so he gets what he wants instead of complaining
    Does any media obligation he is asked to do
    Still trains like an animal despite his success and distractions

    The guy is pretty much all you could ask for in a fighter.

    I don't like the antics but I respect the guy and absolutely love his fighting style although I am one of the people in the audience praying that somebody shuts him up and makes him eat humble pie but he thanked me, so we are cool.

    Conor was born into an ideal member of the First Order. He will exceed all expectations that you people couldn't event imagine.

    Conor, Conor, Conor. What about Conor? Conor is a fighter. Have you heard Conor speak? Some ppl like Conor. Some ppl don't like Conor.

    Conor, Conor, Conor.

    I can't believe the threads I'm reading. I literally made a thread called Conor, Conor, Conor one day to see what would happen and ppl began posting in it like it was a real thread until it got wastelanded.

    I've never seen anything like this and I like Conor. But this is insane.

    The fact that he's stil considered a hype job by some is ridiculous.
    I do think that if he beats RDA and then Frankie, the haters will be left out of arguments.

    Then again, maybe not. Maybe people will claim that Poirier, Mendes, Aldo and RDA were all past their prime and that the man to beat is now Khabib.

    Of course it's all about money you fucking dummy. What do you think it's about, fun??

    yup, train like a dog, eat disgusting shit, pay for coaches, etc. For FUN and all that martial arts respect wax on wax off bullshit.

    It's always about money.

    What the hell are you talking about? Everyone likes watching him fight. Stop pretending like you're all alone standing on a corner cheering the guy on. He's the most popular fighter in MMA. Stop making stupid threads pretending like you're his biggest fan.

    Cool, when is the Royal Rumble? Is Frankie going to run in to the cage during the RDA-Conor fight and get a DQ for Conor by attacking him, maybe they'll make a triple threat at UFC 200 between RDA, Conor & Frankie?

    The WWE argument is so dramatic & childish it's unbelievable.

    What a joke TS. Why do people care so much that others "respect" their favorite fighters? Nothing makes me want to see a certain fighter lose more than their whiney fans telling me what to respect and like. Screw Mcgegor.
