    The dude's an exciting fighter that's for sure, but how is he drawing such large numbers and fan base? His trash talk isn't really that good and he can be grating after a while. I just want to understand why he's so popular when more exciting fighters are not.

    He's the most exciting champion right now for sure, imo.

    There's no reason to think he wouldn't. He has never missed weight at featherweight and even came in under weight against Siver.

    Because his fights are the biggest MMA events in the sport currently. I don't love him though

    Imo, no one brings the vibe or excitement like McGregor. He makes the press conferences a show, his style is exciting and unique. You can just tell how effective he is based on all his detractors.

    I don't love McGregor, but he makes prizefighting a show the way it's meant to be

    I bet if he asked you to suck him you'd delightfully jump at the opportunity. You may as well, you do it verbally on the forums.

    Who is more exciting? 19 wins 17 by knockout 1 decision. What kind of fight is exciting to you?

    Idk. But I do know no other champions are calling for fights at higher weight classes.

    Why does everyone hate Conor would be an equally fair question. But who can really say why we love something? He obviously connects with people in a unique way.

    Whole country behind him like GSP. GSP was a pretty boring fighter lets be honest compared to conor too. And did huge #s.

    Americans don't really support our fighters like foreigners do sadly.

    His fights are exciting, his fighting style is unique, he has KO power, he's brash, fairly articulate, clever, and talks a metric ton of shit and back it up against everyone but Mr. Diaz. He has the "it" factor.

    Brilliant self promoter.

    Never boring in or out of the cage.
