LOL insinuating Masvidal to be a journey man as well
He’s right, cerrone is a very good fighter but he’s fringe top 10 in either LW or WW, virtually no chance of getting a TS. Journeyman doesn’t mean bum.
gatekeeper is not equal to journeyman
He's a gatekeeper. Always hanging around the top, can't win a big fight
That's the giant guy who's runs away from tiny HWs the entire fight?
Gatekeeper. Not journeymen. There a difference.
Cowboy is a glorified jobber
Donald is a quality gatekeeper
He's dangerous for anyone but the top guys can beat him if they don't make mistakes
fury does this to stir shit up since he said he was going to train mma with Mcg as a coach. so it's expected he's rooting for him.
it doesn't mean top 10 either
Love Fury but didnt he just talk shit about conor and say he copied everything he done in boxing?
Well he did say: "It's been a real journey, man."
Conor said he’s never spoken to Fury and doesn’t know where Tyson got that idea lol
I think it's a fair enough statement from Fury, he openly admits to not knowing or being familiar with MMA records. But relates this to a 'fight record' as best he can.
There is sound logic there, if you've lost 13 times it stands to prove that the fighter is obviously beatable as it's been done. However as many seasoned MMA fans know, it's more about the context of the fights themselves, who they fought, how they lost etc. Split Dec or Close U/D.
As others have stated above, Cowboy is a game opponent and is of top 10 quality. A gatekeeper is a fairer assment to someone more familiar to the sport of MMA.
Cerrone is a crowd pleaser and fan favorite, never won the big fights and is inconsistent but you can't dismiss him as just another journeyman fighter, Fury is basing his theory purely on Cerrone's losing record ("A man who has lost 13 times is classed as a bum really" -Fury) but the Boxing legend readily admits he doesn't really know or follow the sport much, but if he would he would notice and recognize 99% of the fighters that Cerrone has lost to (no bums in there whatsoever)
Giant, Tiny and HW dont go together well brah.
If you think about it... Conor is a journeryman as well. Sure he won a belt here, and a belt there, but he NEVER defended them.
Not far from the truth.
But look at your last two opponents Tyson.
He is, a journey man who’s had a 3 fight win streak. Still a journeyman, he’ll revert to type when he next fights an elite!
