F23K THE SOCIAL WELFARE
Connor McGregor is arguably the golden boy coming out of UFC on Fuel TV 9. He was pin point accurate in destroying Marcus Brimage, calm and collected before, during, and after the fight, followed by his charisma being on full display at the press conference. Our usual UFC viewing crew were calling him a Superhero even before he won. They cited his universal appeal, an appeal that isn’t diminished by his ability to speak English yet not be from the US. He’s got the kind of star power that could open some huge European markets, think GSP but globally. Time will tell if his talents are as good as a GSP or Silva or Aldo, I know the UFC is betting on it.
Check out his social commentary, and don;t forget DFW’s funny lines about McGregor and M-1 head honcho (who was apparently in attendance).
