    Would love an Aldo rematch. He'll never do it.

    At least Ali and Tyson weren't afraid to defend their belts.

    MMA is still not a big sport, the majority of people on the street probably have no idea who Conor is, whereas everyone knows who Tyson and Ali are.

    He got stripped of his licence for rightly refusing to engage in the Vietnam War.

    Good on him.

    if you know anything about ali at all i'd say its hard not to make the comparison. ali was hated by many in his time as well and it is conveniently forgotten how horrible his publically stated opinions were.

    " It reflected a hateful worldview that Ali, as a devotee of Elijah Muhammad and the segregationist Nation of Islam, espoused for years. At one point, he even appeared before a Ku Klux Klan rally. It was “a hell of a scene,” he later boasted — Klansmen with hoods, a burning cross, “and me on the platform,” preaching strict racial separation. “Black people should marry their own women,” Ali declaimed. “Bluebirds with bluebirds, red birds with red birds, pigeons with pigeons, eagles with eagles. God didn’t make no mistake!”

    In 1975, amid the frenzy over the impending “Thrilla in Manila,” his third title fight with Joe Frazier, Ali argued vehemently in a Playboy interview that interracial couples ought to be lynched. “A black man should be killed if he’s messing with a white woman,” he said. And it was the same for a white man making a pass at a black woman. “We’ll kill anybody who tries to mess around with our women.” But suppose the black woman wanted to be with the white man, the interviewer asked. “Then she dies,” Ali answered. “Kill her too.”"


    thats ali, and now we got conor calling siver a nazi, talking about massacring and enslaving brazillians in aldos favella etc.


    now obviously conor is just a hype job and his record is fucking rubbish compared with ali's, but that doesnt mean there arent similarities. basically they both got their fame from being loudmouth trainwreck assholes, with the key difference that ali was actually prepared to put a belt on the line while conor just grabs belts then runs away. nobody will be talking about conor after he retires because he just doesnt have the body of work, but there are still comparisons to be made

    Tyson in his prime versus Conor in terms of popularity he is on that level. Check the numbers. 1 million buys every time out. Global media coverage.

    no one gives a shit about conor in germany, italy & spain.

    Tyson was/is bigger.

    Put him in this era and only jesus would be more popular than him.

    Ali didin't lose 3 times before age 30. Neither did Tyson. Ali was much better at the trash talk too and more varied with it.
