Fedoral Crime -ImNotSurprisedDonks -CRE - Firas vs. Conor is a great random beef. It almost sets up a GSP vs. Conor fight.
Conor is done. Worst fall from grace in the sports history, but that was to be expected seeing the type of person he was. He was never going to stay around long and have a graceful exit.
People said the same about Jones the last time he was banned but it only takes 1 fight for people to change their tune.
Look at Nate Diaz & even Masvidal recently. Nate was forgotten about and disregarded but after coming back from a 3 year layoff, he's the talk of the town.
Masvidal has always had a cult following but he KO over Till & his post fight scuffle with Edwards, he blew up. That was his 1st win in 3 fights too. Then after his KO against Askren he went into the most popular fighter in the UFC.
If Conor comes back & gets stopped by a fringe top 10 guy, by all means write him off but until then he's still the biggest draw in the UFC.
People conveniently forget how the Diaz brothers assaulted someone on national television and that led to CBS removing all MMA programming from their networks yet he they are still the toast of the town.
What Conor did is meh and happens ALL THE DAMN time. Just because he is a celebrity doesn't make it any less true.
Its only on the UG that people treat Jones and McGregor like they are some ultra psycho version of OJ Simpson.
