    Im a big fan of his fighting style but not much more. The counter he landed on Buchinger was gorgeous.

    I wouldn't consider myself a nuthugger, but I like Conor, I think his style of fighting is very entertaining. Gotta enjoy a fighter who goes for the finish, unlike Jose Aldo.

    I not only knock out, I pick the round. He made the bold prediction and did exactly what he said, then he said that.

    I've never been a Conor nuthugger, his balls reside on my chin like the rest of us. Get on the train or be left behind with washed up has-beens like Jose Aldo

    Well it hasn't truly hit me yet.

    Maybe when I sober up.

    Anybody who recognizes greatness within themselves realizes greatness in others & how they're aware of it. Conor is aware of his greatness.

    For me, ever since i saw it in him. First interview really..

    I remember hearing a lot about McGregor after the Holloway fight. It was right before he was going to fight Diego Brandao. He was riding in Dana's lambo and saying crazy shit about defeating the greatest Featherweight of all time. I saw the Dublin show and instantly became a fan. He had that movie fighting style, kicks spins and heavy hands.

    We're not here to take part! We're here to take over!

    It was a crazy thing to watch. It was pretty much the McGregor show for me after that. His fighting style reminded me of Silva, and as a SIlva nuthugger, I couldn't stay away. I went to see 189 live and my nuthuggerness increased 10 fold.
    As a fan, it's a crazy ride. You just want someone to reach greatness and be there when an athlete makes history.
