    Korean Zombie has been in the UFC for almost a decade. Although he became prominent in April of 2010 when he fought Leonard Garcia in which the fight was so goddamn exciting that he became a household name.

    Unfortunately, he had to do some mandatory army bullshit but now he is back and his last fight was a win. He is an exciting fighter who is action packed standing and creative submissions on the ground. He subbed Dustin which is like totally super impressive when you look back and see how great Dustin is as we saw in the Khabib fight.

    Now Conor needs a comeback fight and regardless of the outcome, if you put him against the Korean zombie it would be exciting. Both have a strong nationalistic fanbase and it would be very action packed. Conor wins great he is back in the mix but if KZ wins then you market him as a guy who left the UFC to train in some top secret military mission for sake of promoting him.

    Seems highly unlikely, but who could complain if it was made?

    Good fight, but the Zombie doesnt attract enough eyes for the Princess to wanna fight him. She isnt interested in any fight that doesnt earn her more than a couple mil.

    Im (partly) kidding. Conor is a great fighter, but he is more promoter than fighter these days.

    Korean Zombie has gained fame and UFC fandemonium during the time when Conor was starting his MMA career. He was just away to do his army thing which is unavoidable. He still has fans bro, I remember his fight with Leonard and that was almost 10 years ago!!!!!

    Sure, 10 years ago he had more fans than McGregor, but this is 2019, and McGregor is still (unfortunately) the #1 star while KZ is not even top 30

    Its no knock on KZ. Just that fandom /=/ skill.

    Does he do?

    I mean he punched an old man and has been involved with tons of scandal's that and his back to back losses to Floyd and Khabib don't look good because he talked so much shit about them and got finished in both fights.

    KZ is a 145er. Conrad is never going back down.

    But he has to, I mean Conors entire fame and fortune was at the FW division. Besides Alvarez, he has not done anything sensational. Barely winning a questionable decision against Nate and getting choked out by Khabib and the first Nate fight is not good.

    If you wanna fight a Just Bleed opponent, why not just fight Gaethje? At least that's a top ranked guy in your own division

    It won’t go under anytime soon tho. To much fanboys who started watching ufc just because of Conor. Those r the ones that always buy Conor’s whiskey. They worship him.
