Holy god................ those eyebrows............ Groucho Marx would kill for them.
As casual as they come
The support behind him will never be the same as was at MSG for the Alvarez fight - that was his peak and tbf it was something else, you felt like he could’ve ruled the world that night.
Man and I thought Conor's accent was thick...
Damn, I guess Irish people just have a "what a have you done for me lately" mentality.
1:40 The one black guy in Ireland..
Rare sight indeed..
Hitto coming in hot any second.....
Good questions by Pete Caroll, and fair responses from the public.
Love those charming Irish accents.
Casuals like winners. If he kept winning, he could have punched his way through all the pubs in Ireland and he'd still be a massive star. To be pretend his popularity has dwindled because of his antics outside of the cage is disingenuous. Look at Mayweather, his popularity pretty much kept rising throughout his career no matter what he did outside of the ring because with every victory, he became more of an enigma (being undefeated at all). For an example in MMA, look at Jones. He's not a massive star by any means but he's not any less of a draw now than he was before the pulsing and the coke binges. People like winners and turn on them as soon as they lose once or twice.
You obviously never been there have you lol.
Don't mind if I do!
I think it's way more nuanced than that. I mean he carried the Irish flag and the Irish nation along with him to the top and was unabashed in his arrogance as he fell from the top by losing with zero title defenses. His mouth has become larger than his abilities to fight since 2016, almost 4 years can leave a bitter taste.
More like feeling a bit used and abused imho, especially coming from a nation that is not known to have a multitude of historically famous figures on a worldwide scale like Conor was able to do in just a few years.
Gotta love some Irish tits, even the smaller ones are perky and built for speed.
the split between loved/hated is more generational that national
all over the world i feel people over 30 hates him, and kids from 15 to 25 love him
especially if you have kids... all the parents that i know who follow MMA hate his guts, regardless of their religion or skin color.
194 Vegas was absolutely insane
yeah 229 was ridiculous as well
even at the Calgary event prior just because there was rumours of khabib vs Conor being announced there with Conor in attendance there was a fuck ton of Irish ppl that flew down
there doesn’t seem to be nowhere near the hype as before
Conor's done terrible job promoting this fight, nobody knows he is fighting. Oh, wait, isn't that UFC's ONLY job? To promote a fight?
his antics from the mayweather fight onwards lost him a lot of fans, most felt he was just plain cringe (mayweather) or went too far (khabib). and the two rape investigations pretty much wiped out the remaining irish fans.
