Wouldn't Conor McGregor be more of an 'Irish' Bruce Lee than a 'Irish' Ali?

    I've watched a lot of vlogs and interviews of Conor McGregor, he seems to imitate and idolize Bruce Lee more than Ali in terms of his philosophy, fighting and image.

    The only thing I see in common with Ali and McGregor is that they both talked tons of shit?

    P.S. Lets not get into a discussion about whether Bruce Lee was a legitimate martial artist or just an actor. The discussion has been exhausted...

    He reminds me of lyoto machida more than anything. His switch kicks look cool, but it's his boxing that does all the damage.

    He reminds me of an average mma fighter.

    No. Machida has class and actually earned his title shots.
     
  8. No Bruce Lee is an actor not a fighter. Connor is no Ali though either.

    His game of throwing pot shots and spinning shit from the outside isn't going to do it.
