Times have changed in the UFC and what once looked like a firmament full of bright stars has slowly but steadily seen them go out one by one. With Anderson Silva in decline, GSP in a self-impossed retirement, Jon Jones constantly shooting himself in the foot with out of the octagon problems, and Ronda Rousey getting destroyed in her last 2 fights, the options are scarce but there’s one star that still shines.
The UFC has only one mega star left. Love him or hate him, the truth of the matter is you can’t deny him. Conor McGregor is now the face of the UFC and perhaps even of MMA. The purists will say it’s not fair and he doesn’t have the necessary merits, they could be right, but none of that matters when it comes to business and making money.
Conor McGregor has a faithful legion of millions of fans who pretty much worship him. Today some of them might feel betrayed after watching this video, others might take his side, defend and justify him. The reality is he’s just another human being and sometimes people just want to be left alone.
