    Wow they must have a big marketing budget to be able to afford an image of McGregor for their promotion.

    Well good luck to McGregor. All that money from beating guys well out of his league, no defence of the title, it’s a great sport.

      And McGregor is the chief jester with $30m + banked…not that much of a clown.
      How’s your bank balance reading.

        chief jester he is, in a world of clowns. fair play to him!
        Bank balance is very healthy thanks and my dignity is intact too.

          It’s not about the money, it’s that he has become the top dog in the industry in 3 years but some folks on the Internet need to feel superior to him.

          1. Anomanomanom

            I’m not a huge ufc or mma fan in general. But from what I’m told McGregor cuts tons of weight so he can fight the guys he’s beaten so easily. It’s a good game plan and made him loads of money but it sums up the sport

          2. ReproBertie

            McGregor did not invent cutting weight nor is cutting weight something that only happens in MMA. The notion that he won a world title because he hit upon some magic weight cutting plan that nobody else thought of is ludicrous.

          3. Anomanomanom

            I didn’t mean he hit a magic formula. Again from what I’m told, I’m not a fan, he cuts so much weight because it’s an easier Weight class for him than his natural weight class. Again I’m not a fan so not sure how it’s Weight class work.

          4. MoyestWithExcitement

            Aye. Everyone cuts weight in combat sports. All the boxers do as well. McGregor never missed weight. Plenty of others have.

            And what about you and Michael O’Leary then?

            Earning money is fine in sport but EVIL in business?

          6. MoyestWithExcitement

            Yeah I never said earning lots of money in business is evil. Thats a very tired strawman that’s been used by right wing slogan chanters for decades. I’d go into more detail but with lines like that, I doubt you understand the concept of nuance. Well done, fella.

        1. MoyestWithExcitement

          Why do you have any interest in that? Can’t feel superior to him so you just tell yourself he’ll blow through his money?

      I was of the line of thinking Harry until I got chatting to the barman one day, I asked who was Mary and he laughed and said she’s fictional, he then went on to tell me that it’s owned by the same crowd who own a whole host of things including a hotel and Wagamama, but worst of all… he told me they owned Bison! I was gutted, I was full sure that Bison was a one off business owned by some BBQ lovers who got together to open a restaurant (or similar)

      Anyhow, I got over it.

      It’s a made up Irish country theme bar which used to be found overseas but are now found here. So Irish bars are now a parody of themselves and who better than tasteless southsiders with no imaginations to lap it up and think this represents someone edgy and cool. It’s like preppy Americans who build new houses to look like 200 year old English mansions. Farce.

      They’re still too afraid to go the International. They only got over the authenticity of Kehoes 10 years ago and have that place ruined now with their loud competitive showboating conversations.

      Used to be a certain class of enlightened person in Dublin who recognised quality and good conversation. Now people confuse that with having money. All talk, no substance. They don’t respect people unless they want to get something from them.

      They reserve good manners for among their own kind only yet treat outsiders with contempt. That’s bad rearing.

    I like when contrived places like ‘Mary’s’ open up. It draws the easily impressed jumper over the shoulder goys and their bland blondes away from the actually authentic bars nearby.
