They just called mcgregger the Irish Mohammad Ali during the Seahawks packers broadcast.
Please kill me
One of a kind.
Haha just herd that too, Im a fan but this hype machine is getting a bit out of control.
Ali was the black Chael Sonnen.
More like a mixture of Tyson, Fraizer and Jesus Christ in my opinion.
Also Hawks could you play worse right now.
"I've seen that guy in....those fights and he....(nervous laughter)...hes pretty good"
Oh my god... this just keeps getting better and better. An upset in the main bout tonight may reach biblical proportions.
Ah, the NFL has been blessed.
Wow! What a compliment for Ali. Best birthday gift he could have gotten.
Yeah, Conor MC*** fans are putting too much pressure on him, it may end badly.
He's the Messiah.
Gonna be hilarious when Siver puts him to sleep.
Even as a big McGregor fan, it would be quite embarrassing for the UFC if he got caught with a haymaker and lost.
Me too plz.
attracting and appealling to casuals, no surprises there
Cannot disagree, but these particular foolish words were spoketh by FOX folks. FOX too will look really stupid if an upset occurs.
Where is Joe to say "No" to such comparisons when you need him?
So if Fox can get a few thousand more people to see what the fuss is about, win or lose is that a bad thing?
This isn't new. Yesterday in the weigh-in footage they referred to Conor as "the UFC's version" of Sugar Ray Leonard or Muhammad Ali. It's in the beginning of the footage so I don't know how some of you missed it. It isn't surprising that FOX is parroting what the UFC said.
