    Random thread is random but just curious to know what moments lead people to crazy levels of fame for a short while?

    Some I can think of:
    - That dude in the chuck costume
    - Though still famous, Holly reached a crazy level of fame for a short while after beating RRR
    - Dave Sholler after the Jones / DC staredown

    No one was even talking anything about him before the Conor fight.

    Now everyone knows him, however, after Conor beats him there will be no more Nate talk once again.

    Idiots weren't talking about him before the Conor fight. And people who know about MMA know that he's never quite maximized his potential.

    The fact that Conor can't beat him makes you wonder if Conor's 15 minutes is up.

    It should be.

    Nate was discussed plenty on this forum over the years. It may have increased for the Conor fights, but what you are saying is not factual.

    Who gives a shit. No one was talking about him. When he loses again, no one will talk about him because no one cares about him. It's just how things is.

    Nate will never do any good without Conor.

    Charlie Brenneman vs Rick Story is a great example of 15 minutes of fame.

    The Spaniard's greatest moment.

    Josh Grispi. Top contender in WEC. Supposed to be Aldo's first title defense, Aldo gets injured, he takes a fight with Poirier instead of waiting for Aldo, gets rekt, ends up on Dr Phil with his crazy wife whom he abused.
