But, wait...why would anyone pay for a wrestling show that is totally scripted and fixed? And "homophobic and racial slurs hurled around"....you as a wrestling fan asking that? What McGregor is doing is the same wrestling has been doing from the beginning and still doing, even though WWE is much more subtle about it now due to going corporate.
McGregor is the greatest thing to come to MMA, probably ever. He's a brilliant self promoter and a great fighter. You have not followed McGregor at all if you think he's just all talk.
" It's such an obvious cash grab, and they're not even trying to hide it."
Sure it is. And it's working like gangbusters.
