Tweetwhat else can you expect from a piece of excrement like him? to start with yes, he is an extremely talented fighter. he is literally a student of the game, meticulous studying of various disciplines, reads his opponents well and knows how to tear them down before the bell even rings, very, very talented. Unfortunately Dana and company have let him know in no uncertain terms that he is the golden child of the UFC, they depend on him to make ridiculous amounts of money so he has learned early on in his career that he can pretty much dictate who he wants to fight and when, he can demand a title shot in a division he has never fought in and get his demand granted. The UFC has also taught him there are zero repercussions for his actions and you now have a full grown man, a very skilled and dangerous man, who is essentially having the emotional mindset of a 10 year old spoiled brat, doing whatever the fuck he wants and expecting zero punishment for it. So some older gentleman is seen in the video being poured a glass of Conor's whiskey, Proper 12, along with a few other patrons by Conor himself. Perhaps a taste sample ? and with no audio it's hard to say what conversation took place but i am assuming it went something like this:
Conor: hey mates, try my Proper 12, best irish whiskey in the world.
Old man: sure, thanks.
Conor: (expectantly waiting for a response of "great stuff, lad")
Old man: eh, doesn't do much for me, i prefer Jameson.
Conor: Fook you wanker (proceeds to sucker punch old man in the face)
As an aside, i actually really like his whiskey and almost always have a bottle in the house. i actually tried it about 2 years ago at Hooters hoping i'd think it was absolutely awful but in fact prefer it to Jameson and almost like it as much as Jack Daniels as my regular libation of choice. Problem is impressionable youths, at least in the case of the swooning males who watch his fights at Hooters are skinny little pussies with man buns who couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag and literally sound like a teen age girl at a Justin Beiber concert yelling Conor!!!! And these young dudes are acting just like him and expecting the same "no one will give me grief" free pass that Mr McGregor gets and are finding rude awakenings when they wake up face down in the parking lot. Dana and company have created a monster with their god like image they have given Conor. Even the old golden child, Wahnda Roussey was never this bad in the public eye. Eventually this idiot is going to either fuck with the wrong person, like the last old man he beat up who was a lesser ranked individual in the irish mafia or he's going to kill someone and spend the rest of his days in prison wondering what happened. To summarize, incredibly talented fighter who could be the best ever, but his own worst enemy that many UFC fans and most casual observers cannot stand for his behavior and attitude, kinda sad.
