Seriously. And why?
I'm going to go with the white, blonde guy that speaks english.
Skin colour is irrelevant. Looks are mildy irrelevant.
Fact that Dillashaw speaks english and is CONFIDENT in his speech is key.
When the eventual rift with Faber comes, theyre gonna milk that storyline for all its worth. Its gonna be like Evans vs Jones/Jackson but in mini form.
And it will be the most marketable small man fight in ufc history. But ufc will probably ruin that momentum by making them do a dumbass TUF season first.
It should be irrelevant but it is very relevant
TJ. By a mile.
Ugly guy that speaks no English or the pretty boy from a well known promoted camp that speaks English. No brainier. Huge upgrade in marketing for zuffa
While it's a fact that more people in the world speak English (even just the most basic), are there more "white, blonde guy(s)" who can relate to a "white, blonde guy" UFC champion?
Did you see how happy Lorenzo looked? possible he was smiling because he just saw a huge upset, also possible that he sees a guy in Dillashaw that will be 50 times easier to market than Barao.
Dillashaw was more marketable before he even won the title
Everything about Barao (short of his abilities) is unmarketable
Great foresight, bro!
Well Barao was never marketable, at least not to casuals. I liked him cuz he had decent striking, a great spinning back kick and could keep the fight standing, didn't care what he spoke or what he looked like. Casual fans are shallow like that, they're like 13 year old kids.
Even if TJ was the favorite he'd still be smiling because that was a phenomenal performance. Makes the sport look really good with fighters like that.
TJ's performance was the best fighting performance to this date IMO
Doesn't matter cuz Cruz is gonna come and take back his belt.
Its what I always was thinking anyway that belt is Cruz's only if he is healthy.
They're the same, the masses don't about 135 lb male MMA fighters.
With what they've shown, the masses should care about the "135 lb male MMA fighters."
Who also put a striking clinic on the #1 P4P fighter in the world according to Dana White.
