The shelf life of a top level fighter is very short.  On top of everything else, i think that’s what makes Cormier so special.  There’s only one guy that can beat him.  His entire career has been “his prime”.  So we boo him.

"There's only one guy that can beat him."??

 

Nate Diaz choked him out.

Mayweather thrashed him.

Khabib destroyed him.

 

Look like 3 to me.

You reallly can’t count the Mayweather fight as a real fight in terms of how a real fight goes down. Also the fact that Conor came back from The Diaz loss to win the rematch says a lot about the guy.

 

he will be back & is still a star

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?

 

Money can't buy respect and right now, even his hometown is showing him zero respect.

No both UK and ireland have trashy newspapers that traditionally sell a lot to blue collar folks.

Though their sales figures are bombing in the modern internet age.  

But these are well known publications.  Everyone would know the name of the papers.

Agreed.  The papers are comically bullshit.

But in this instance, they are comically bullshit against Conor, rather than for him.

There was some talk that leading up to the bus incident McGregor was losing the home fans.

They could relate to the guy living on welfare and hand outs trying to make it big not so much the yachts and flash money guy.

The Irish media never had Conor’s back...it’s not some new thing after this loss. They have zero interest in covering the sport unless they can get a tabloid headline out of it. They jumped on this the same way they jumped on his loss to floyd. The papers aren’t good representation of the people of Ireland. Trust me he has tonnes of fans still. Very passionate ones too...one of the very few countries loyal enough to fly anywhere in the world in their thousands at great financial cost to support their fighter. 

I’ve been to lots of UFC/boxing events in Europe and I’m yet to see a considerable American crowd show up to support any of their fighters.

thats not meant as a knock to the American supporters..I’m sure there’s tonnes of proper passionate fans. But some countries just don’t seem to really rally behind their guy as others do. 

Dont take the word from these rags that the whole of Ireland is against Conor...it’s simply false. 

PS it’s also not incorrect to say he has lost support from some people due to his arrogance/antics of late. But it’s no mass exodus as those headlines suggest

He wen't from a guy who couldn't hack a real job and standing in line for handouts to getting paid more than he could ever spend pretty much over night.

He then proceeded to start calling people like Aldo poor and a bum on TV.

He became gross overnight it's true that not just home fans began to dislike him but people all over the world disliked him it's just that his CHAV (Council house and violent) fans soaked it up and shouted out loud how much they loved it they put on cheap suits and grew beards and thought they were going to become millionaires overnight because their so fucking stupid they can't grasp reality.

I was entertained before, but it's true some of his tirades against Aldo, Khabib, and lower rankled fighters some of whom he'll never face, that was just arrogant prick stiff. Success did inflate his ego. He was super confident, driven, with a clear vision, but the classless when he achieved it.

So you're saying the Irish media is as bad as so many places. Damn media suck!

The media, and their interests are bad.  But also just the structure of the media is bad.

That guy,  who has that double page colour story, called McGrath stated his opinion.

But he said it as thought its fact.  He is asserting, as though he is speaking for the whole world.  but he is just some random guy called McGrath.  Who give a fuck what he thinks?

But because he has that position he does influence a narrative.
