    And while he had some great wins he really hasn't that achieved that much in the sport besides being a master of trash talking and being Irish. It just annoys me how he talks like he is the best fighter ever regardless of weight when any middleweight and most likely welterweight would destroy him.

    "Hasn't achieved that much in the sport."

    He's literally the champion of the world.

    Beat it, nerd.

    I'm confused why the height matters. Conor markets himself very well. He created an image and continues to deliver with it.

    It is a little weird considering if you were standing face to face with him it wouldn't be very intimidating

    That's like SJW level stupidity. What the fuck does his height have anything to do with his popularity?

    This man needs to stop fighting cans. I really enjoy watching him fight and want to see the step up in competition.

    And as far as the height thing, who gives a shit. There's plenty of popular fighters from smaller weight classes. They generally put on better fights than heavyweights.
