Didn't know where to put this so I guess here will do.
Seen a little video of Conor saying he was done with MMA, then the phone rang and it was UFC. I knew this was bollocks cause I remember keeping an eye on his twitter after the Buchinger fight and I specifically remember him begging for a fight constantly.
Just funny reading some of his shit from the start. Like an extremely ill timed "I'll silence you like your kindergarten classes" to Jim Alers on the same day as Sandy Hook. Ken Egan, Irish Olympic Boxing Champ, posting gay shit about Conor then Conor puts him in his place with his now common "In pure unarmed combat I'd whoop you" stuff. Then some boxing page comes in saying "Calm down or we'll set Joe Duffy on you again" and Conor's like "Joe's an elite martial artist. Good luck with his boxing career" and Joe's like "Thanks, bring them UFC titles back to Ireland". Now we're been presented like that's a life long rivalry since Joe came back to MMA and is in UFC
Sharing a James Gallagher video from when he was only 16. Pictures of SBG looking not too dissimilar from
the shitty shed I was training in for a while
Being delighted because Nidge from Love/Hate is following him on twitter haha. Saying he's going to watch Liz Carmouche Vs Ronda Rousey butt naked lmao (Probably kept that one quiet when it came to meeting her). Saying UFC is following him and he doesn't want to get sacked for what he tweets (Probably didn't think of that when announcing his retirement).
white I'D STOP EDDIE ALVAREZ IN THE 1st ROUND, I'D STOP JIM MILLER IN THE 1st ROUND, I'D STOP CLAY GUIDA IN THE 1st ROUND
That's an interesting one. Close enough Conor, close enough.
Cool that stuff like this is captured in this day in age. You have to wonder what a young Ali and stuff would have been thinking. Tyson was exposed to it all instantly so we got to see him but lots of fighters of the past where we never actually saw their thoughts before they made it.
