My Summary

πŸ₯Š The Fighter β–Έ My appreciation of the fighting style, how enjoyable or inspiring I find it based on the skills, the heart, the will etc... Basically the greatness or the sheer excitement the fighter brings in any way way, shape or form. ⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘⁘ πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ The Man β–Έ My appreciation of the man himself or at the very least what transpires through what we can see since we can't judge people we don't actually know personally. So basically the personality he brings and how much respect I have for the man or simply the excitement he brings to the sport.

Nobody in the history of the sport has ever taken it by storm the way Conor has, and his meteoric rise to fame and glory remains one of the most fascinating things i've ever experienced in any sports. I remember seeing him for the first time at the weigh-in of his UFC debut against Marcus Brimage and wondering "who the fuck is that guy ?!" (for real), and that first fight against Brimage as well as the post-fight presser sure rose a lot of interest. I remember having heard the name before but never actually knew who he was so I went back to his Cage Warriors fights, and you could already see the potential and what the hype was about. From that point, I knew this guy could be something special. I just never knew he would turn out to be the sport's biggest star ever in about two damn years... The man single-handedly changed the game forever and elevated the sport to new heights (much like Muhammad Ali did for boxing) through his captivating trash talking and mind games, brash attitude, unbreakable confidence and remarkable ability to back it all up in the octagon in spectacular fashion. His Irish takeover was quite simply mind-blowing and the hype he created was unparalleled, he brought Ireland on the map like no athletes before. His rise was a thrill to watch. From his first 5 fights in the UFC to his interim title fight against Chad Mendes (which remains one of my favorite moments of all time), he was arguably my favorite athlete ever. I simply had never experienced such a thing in MMA and it was mesmerizing. The whole Aldo build-up was a thrill to watch (and i'm a HUGE Aldo fan), and even though I was heartbroken and beyond shocked by the result, Conor's aura became something else. His first fight against Nate Diaz sure took some of it away and was kind of disappointing at the time, but it turned out to be a MONUMENTAL moment that made a superstar out of Nate and gave birth to one of the sport's greatest rivalries that led to a legendary rematch for the ages. The following fight against Eddie Alvarez was the cherry on top... An history-making masterclass that restored all the hype, left me in awe and further cemented my admiration for the man. Unfortunately, Conor's career went kind of downhill from here... There was the money fight against Mayweather, which did nothing to help his legacy and kind of tarnished his reputation in my opinion, even though some are able to take some positives out of it. His star power and credibility were arguably at its highest entering the fight and earned him tons of money. But then, the Khabib fight happened, and the McGregor effect took a massive hit. He brought a lot of controversy with some of his despicable, uncharacteristic actions and his trash talking leading up to the fight became sort of questionable and somewhat of bad taste for the most part. Sure the whole build-up created a lot of buzz and made it the biggest fight in the history of the sport, but it also made Conor look bad, and his performance didn't help overshadow all of that. The aura that made him so special prior to the Mayweather fight lost some of its magic, it lost me a little bit as well, but the man managed to get back on the right path, built himself back up and I hope this can lead to another title run as there's nothing quite like a Conor McGregor run.

GSP's philosophy is the polar opposite of what detractors of the sport think of it. He's not (all) about violence, blood, trash talk and stuffs, of course there's some of that, that's a part of it and one of the reasons I love it, but GSP has always valued respect, intelligence and athleticism over everything, and you can only appreciate that. He was never the most entertaining fighter to watch, especially for casual fans... Frequently criticized for not finishing fights, even labelled as boring by some, and I hated it. OK, he never had one-punch knockout power, never engaged in some wars and all, I never thought he was that fast or explosive either, but his IQ and the way he was able to dominate thanks to his jab, his perfect timing, his elite wrestling and top control was quite fascinating. He always fought the best guy available, some very solid competition. I honestly don't think he would be quite as dominant in today's MMA, but he was one of my first introductions to the sport, a true martial artist, always a class act on top of being a french-speaking fellow, and his comeback win over Michael Bisping after 4 years to become a two-division champion remains one of my favorite moments of all time.

A man who went from being an exciting young prospect at 145, albeit a mostly wild one with a questionable chin, which ultimately cost him some of his most crushing defeats, most notably first-round knockouts at the hands of an ascending Conor McGregor at 145 and a more stunning one at the hands of Michael Johnson after a promising 4-0 run after moving up to 155. But from there, Dustin quickly evolved into one of the very best in the world in arguably the UFC's toughest division. He was already known for being an exciting fighter prior, but took it to a whole new level after that Johnson fight, all while drastically improving his skills and never losing that heart and fire, and if anything, only making it bigger. It resulted in one of the most inspiring rebuilt ever seen in the UFC as well as one of its most exciting runs. A thrilling 6-fight undefeated streak including wins over former UFC Champions Anthony Pettis and Eddie Alvarez (twice, the No Contest was bullshit), future UFC Champion Justin Gaethje and capped it off with a win over the UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway to win the Interim UFC Lightweight title. And he did it all in the most exciting way possible, earning 5 post-fight bonuses, putting on classics against Gaethje and Holloway and not having a single ordinary fight, only wars in which he displayed exceptional heart, an undying will, a phenomenal ability to recover and a somehow improved chin on top of elite skills. Of course he went on to be another victim to the monster that is Khabib in a failed attempt at the crown, but once again rose back up and came back with yet another mind-blowing performance in one of the greatest 5-round non-title fights ever in an absolute war against Dan Hooker. Really, his ability to overcome adversity is absolutely remarkable and he still brings it every single time. You just cannot hate the fighter... And you can only respect the man as well. A true role model whose genuine charity work earned him the inaugural "Forrest Griffin Community Award". The man embodies the spirit of martial arts beautifully. A true inspiration inside and outside the octagon.

One of my favorite fighters to watch, his striking is phenomenal, explosive with some of the deadliest leg kicks ever, excellent boxing, a crisp jab, a wicked liver shot, some of the best head movement and reflexes in MMA, stellar takedown defense, remarkable toughness but most importantly tons of heart and an undying will. His reign on top was a joy to watch, from his flash 8-second knockout of Cub Swanson, his destruction of Urijah Faber's leg back in WEC, to his hard-fought classic with Mark Hominick in front of over 50.000 fans in the first featherweight title fight in UFC history, his knockout of Chad Mendes in Brazil, and their legendary rematch, his great first (super)fight against Frankie Edgar... Some will say he had a couple of underwhelming defenses in between, that he was too preservative and lost the killer instinct he had in WEC, but he was dominant and I had no problem with that. He also was never the biggest personality, the fact he doesn't speak English never helped obviously and remains part of the reason he was never a huge draw despite being one of the best fighters to ever do it, but he's always been respectful, humble, friendly with the fans and his story is one of the most inspiring rise to glory. Even as a Conor fan who had a blast during the build-up to their fight, his 13-second, career damaging knockout loss remains one of the most heartbreaking moments i've ever experienced as a fan of the sport. The following back-to-back losses to Max Holloway (a nightmare match-up) just after regaining the title against Frankie also affected me a lot as a fan. That's also why the following back-to-back emotional wins by knockout over top competition when most people were counting him out only reinforced my love and respect for the legend he is as I realized just how much this meant to him and how much I wanted him to succeed and prove people wrong. This man deserves more respect, people (most of those who started watching because of Conor) diminish his phenomenal accomplishments ever since the Conor fight and his crushing defeats over the absolute beast that is Max Holloway, but he is undeniably one of the the greatest fighters of all time and one of my absolute favorites, whenever Run This Town starts playing, I get goosebumps like very few other entrance songs in MMA.

    A true marvel to watch. The Last Stylebender is one of the most brilliant strikers to ever step foot inside the octagon, he has a swagger and confidence about him both in and out of the cage that makes him fascinating to watch. He's a true stud with a great martial arts spirit, a remarkable mindset, he might come off as cocky and arrogant but he's just REAL and truly down to earth. He loves the sport and respects his peers as perfectly displayed by his fight with Anderson Silva in particular but also his absolutely epic 5-round war for the ages against Kelvin Gastelum. Adesanya is for REAL. πŸ₯Š The Fighter β–Έ [ ≀ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ] ~ πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ The Man β–Έ [ ≀ ⭐⭐⭐⭐+ ]

I instantly, and naturally, wondered how this crazy fuck would fair in the UFC against elite competition, and when that finally happened after making 5 defenses of his WSOF title and creating a bit of buzz around him, I was hyped. First UFC fight, he gets a main event spot against a top 10 lightweight, and my god did he show what he was all about.
