Wow. Couldn't watch. The dude's face is grating.
Variety sports analysts shouldn't be a thing. These guys generally have 1 or 2 sports of expertise yet dip their toes into everything and usually end up coming off as completely moronic. Him and Skip Bayless man... I remember Skip just repeating "40 years old!" Over and over again when talking about why Mayweather would lose to Conor lol.
It's fine for them to watch the big events and get excited about it but to be arguing about it on live tv when they have no idea what they are talking about...
Lame response, he didn’t even address what rogan was criticizing him for. Rogan’s main issue wasn’t that he was wrong about whether Conor did or didn’t show in the fight, it was the way that he was talking about and basically talking shit about Cerrone. In his response smith didn’t say anything about that other than briefly saying that he’s an experienced sports reporter and entitled to state his opinion. He was mostly just talking about Conor, which wasn’t rogans issue at all.
Also, he’s bragging about the fight doing big numbers as if people were tuning in to watch him... somehow good ratings means his comments were “good for the sport.” No one that watched that fight put it on because of Stephen a smith and the fight was over before he made the comment.
Lame response, he should just shut up.
Next up to do some MMA broadcasting.....
Smith got some of y’all acting like some bitches.
He should talk about the sport, just not on live tv like he knows what he is talking about.
Ladies and gentleman, referee Keith Peterson has called a stop to this contest. The end comes at 3.30 seconds of the first round, declaring the winner by KNOOOOOOOCKOOOOOOUUUUTTT - STEPHEEEEEN AAAAAAA. SMIIIIIITHHH
yea, which is exactly why he should not be commentating about this fight
Main reason people are hating on SAS is because he's going against the narrative that there is this new and improved Conor. Obviously his comments about how he could do better than Cerrone were ludicrous.
MAke him stop talking. Last time I checked this America not crybaby land.
MMA fans are so insecure.
SAS is bringing more attention and viewers to the sport. He’s a casual fan that brings a casual take. You don’t like it you can move the UFC back to Spike. Him speaking about the UFC brings in a ton of viewers that don’t necessarily fit the UFC demographic.
He still gave a more accurate analysis than Rogan did
Folding like a cheap tent disrespectful? Sure... but it was also accurate. Cowboy folded like a cheap tent, CM was the wind that caused it.
I do not believe that Cowboy is incapable of making a fight with Conor more competitive than a sub-30 second folding. Therefore I think he underwhelmed, under-performed and did poorly. Conor capitalized on it like he should have.
SAS isn't there for respectful analysis. That isn't what he's known for. He's known for: hyperbole, bombtastic statements, inflammatory analysis, etc.
It's not my job but the UFC/ESPN can. The UFC is already cracking down on analysts trying to make sure they all know what they are talking about which is why 90% of them are current or former fighters now.
Sounds like a crybaby tactic for sensitive people.
The camera should have been positioned a lot lower to really capture the size difference.
Okay? Or maybe for people that like to listen to people that know what they are talking about? What is Smith your boyfriend or something?
lolol A level troll. his job is to say ridiculous things and get a reaction, just like skip bayless.
