Forbes going hard... just a shame they don't know shit about MMA. Why are they having a go at UFC's competition when the NBA/NFL have absolutely no competition either? I hate journalism.
Also you're ranking these American sports with viewings when the world cup and champion league finals get billions of dollars worth of viewing.
Saw this coming when they first started saying that, guys good no doubt. and he might even turn out to be THAT good, but its too soon to tell and to make that claim was pretty outlandish, no wonder he distanced himself from it. At least it shows his boastfulness has limits, actually makes me like him mcgregor a bit more.
The article is pretty dead on. inb4 butthurt UFC fans
"bigger than soccer"
Agreed. Pretty terrible of the ufc to compare Ali to the GOAT. Ali is nowhere near the GOAT's level.
The UFC is making their own bed with this type of stuff. The more mainstream they are, the more criticism that will come their way.
I hate the word "Humble" but they need to be humble going into this next phase
Not a good comparison at all. Sometimes hyping up fighters can go way to far as in this case.
Pretty much spot on
conner beats ali round 1 KO under 2 minutes
Why is Ali so overrated as a person? He was not a very nice guy. At all.
Ronda beats Mayweather faster though.
I mean... UFC is surging recently... not all good though (lawsuit, Jones etc...)
And for those delusional McGregor fans, he's the Green.
Because he had the balls to say things like this in such a hateful time (And thousands of other stuff Im not going to post)
And done in such a smart and charismatic way.
No one thinks Ali was "Nice". He had balls. Gusto. Rage. Impact. Importance.
He would be the last person to describe himself as "Nice". After he came back from the Olympics, his life and views were based in a lot of inner turmoil and hate none of us can really imagine, and he used those things to become even greater than anyone thought he or any heavyweight boxer could be. Very important individual in modern culture. Very brave. Not nice.
Ali vs Flair for a public office would have been grand
Bigger dan soccer
You also have to take into account he came from a very different time when having that edge and burden he carried was a bit more.... necessary. But Ali also did have a moral compass and he stood by it.
It's hard to overrate Ali's significance as a person.
