Finally the press has had a chance to step back and look at McGregor's accomplishments objectively, without the distraction of his superstardom, over the top rhetoric, etc. And the truth is that he has signed to fight the toughest opponents, never pulls out, and has one of the most impressive records in the organization, with victories over Holloway, Poirier, Mendes, Aldo, and Alvarez. And not just decisions, but one sided, devastating beatdowns against these world class opponents. I remember a few months ago when Khabib won the belt there was this idea going around amongst the haters that Conor would never fight Khabib despite him being the obvious choice, instead favoring a rubber match against Diaz that no one wants to see. The idea was dead in the water to begin with yet still people believed it. Now that the fight is signed these people have even less credibility.
