Swanson not a fan how McGregor carries himself


Featherweight contender Cub Swason talks to the UG's Jonathan Shrager regarding a plurality of subjects, including;

-His experience so far of Ireland and his impressions of the Irish people. Topics include Guinness, Google Glasses and Golf.

-His opinions on Conor McGregor as a martial artist and man, Cub's response to Conor's remarks directed at him, the prospective matchup between both men, how Conor's marketability might fast track his progress to the title shot, and the genuine threat posed by Diego Brandao to Conor's burgeoning profile.

-Who appeals to Cub as his next adversary, and his route to a title shot.

-How he'd strategically approach a rematch with Jose Aldo.

-USA's recent impressive display in the World Cup, and whether USA could win a World Cup prior to England, how football ("soccer") rates globally against MMA in terms of popularity and its potential for growth, and how football skills can prove useful when transitioning to MMA.

-Cub's philosophy towards Martial Arts.

Did I ever say the sport was doomed?No I did not, I am speaking 100% about his money earning ability.both he and Conor go out and finish fights. Both are fun as hell to watch. But one is a vet of the sport and not making anywhere near as much as the other.People need to wake the fuck up and realize that this is a business. You can have your "fights are all that matter to me" mind frame. and thats great, but fighters need to start seeing where money can be made.I wasnt talking about him in the ring, he is so vanilla on a mic. I'm not saying he has to be crazy, but man $ is all that matters here

Chael has a shtick to promote fights and then gets beat up. Conor talks shit and is the one handing out beatings.

lol @ this crazy shit.He is far from Vanilla in the ring. (Where it counts)If he was a boring fighter who laid on top of people for 3 rounds, you might have a point. But he throws some of the most vicious punches I have ever seen and is trying to decapitate fools with every shot.But let's shit on the guy because he does not do a good WWE style promo.This 'sport' is doomed.

Swanson is just a bit sore in his bum. He is a great fighter, but he is so vanilla.Conor has been around for like 4 years, and is already skyrocketing upwards towards the real money. Swanson is teaching his students how to work really hard and not make jack shit

"Cub should look up to McGregor as someone who doesn't take no for an answer and will keep pushing to get what he wants."WTF? lolCub pushes for what he wants by knocking fools out in the cage and has been doing so for a while.Good luck to McGregor and perhaps he may be as good as he says he is, but Cub has already proven how good he is, Connor has just told us about it, so far.How the fuck can anyone shit on Cub? One of the most exciting fighters in the UFC and seems like cool guy to me.
