    Watching everything Conor said prefight was cringe when it happened

    Going back and watching now after the fact you begin to feel embarrassed for him

    Watch some of the videos of his shit talk prior to the Floyd Mayweather fight... that shit is gold. Good laughs for sure. Conor believed the shit he was spewing which makes it even more fun.

    Gotta say though he's like the Eminem of MMA when it comes to trash talking, unfortunately you have to back up everything you say in the octagon, and it's a winner takes all type of situation.

    Why? All that talk generated more money.

    Win or lose the trash talk made him serious cash

    you feel embarrassed for him making more money?

    I am more embarrassed for so called fight fans who think UFC should mean Ultimate Forbes Championship. Money doesnt make you a better fighter.

    The fallout... in the fight business when you talk the shit Conor has you have to hold up your end of the deal and perform. He has been over the top and promising big KOs in his last 2 contests and then absolutely got thumped and under performed. Right now hes being clowned on his social media accounts and you are crazy if you think his fights still generate what he has prior. He needs a Khabib or Diaz fight to get big buys now. People sense BS and move on quick.

    Its called promotion. It increases the prize for the prize fight.

    229 sure sold a ton of PPVs didnt it?

    Yes it did, but as i said you have to uphold your end of the deal. Using the trash talk promo and then getting your ass handed to you back to back tends to do your star more harm than good. His next fight, with or without Khabib doesnt do as well as UFC 229.

    Typical McTaps response. His bank account. Which 99 percent of his fans care about most. Wish you scum would die off. He touted himself as the best ever and got handled in embarrassing fashion. Crawl back into your hole. Hugger.

    one of the two had to lose. Ali lost, Tyson lost, DC lost, all talked serious shit to sell the fight.

    uphold your end of the deal?? what does that even mean?

    Khabib had Conors name coming out of his mouth non stop while Conor was silent for a long time. Conor finally caved in and went back at Khabib promoting the fight to the best of his ability. Thats his job whether you like it or not.

    Both guys talk shit. One wins one loses. It isnt the first time and it wont be the last time a guy talks shit and eats humble pie.
