Cowboy is a journeyman, nothing more. UFC was setting this fight up to make Conor look good once again. On the other hand, Conor was a special fighter. Only way Conor loses was if he destroyed himself. That was what I said leading into the fight. This was similar to Eddie fight. I was saying Eddie was the easiest match up for Conor at that point, but people were up in arms and talking about how great Eddie was, not really knowing how good Eddie was, then after he got slaughtered like Cowboy, his fans all but disappeared and some talked about it being a fixed fight. Cowboy and Eddie both needed something like a miracle to win that fight. They had good names, good resume, but Cowboy is nothing but a journeyman who did good for himself, and Eddie is better but a guy also was rather completely outmatched on paper. Disrespect towards someone like Cowboy, though he lacks skill but what he doesn't lack is willingness and love to fight, this whole suggestion that he somehow threw the fight, is nothing but ignorance and stupidity. At the end of the day, don't buy the Zuffa cool-aid. When Dana is talking about someone having a chance to win, you really believe Dana out of all people? Once you start buying into UFC cool-aid, It will turn you into a brainless, hate-filled, irrational, stupid just bleed noob.
