Chael is right
Chael also thinks athletic commissions and federal courts are annoying
I'm not going to watch it, but I'm guessing it's coming from the same part of his anus he pulled the 'expose the business' rants from.
No way I'm wasting my time watching that video of Fhael, but I will say that the translation is that Chael knows that hardcore fans see and speak of him as the good fighter but fraud of a fighter he is, with cheesy antics, and we don't hate him but we see the bullshit, and he wants to discredit the hardcores to pour more bullshit to get bites from casuals.
We see you Chael
LOL you better spend your time focusing on Fedor if you want some advice playa
it's a sport until you're good, or flashy enough to get on tv. once you're on tv, extra show-business duties are silently assigned. some don't realise. some refuse to conform. the guys that understand, make the bucks.
chael is the king of undeserved fights and he choked in every big fight he was ever in
I agree with Chael on this one.
Every time a GOAT discussion comes up, it constantly gets shit-spammed by a small group of "hardcore" fans claiming that Fedor somehow deserves to be on the list.
Yes he can be annoying but he's good at keeping himself relevant and I agree with him on this, I do like the cut of his jib. Nice shirt too.
He is very knowledgeable, but I just hate when he outright lies & makes up stories on his podcast.
If he just stuck to an honest look at all things MMA, he can be brilliant.
He has a great mind & see's both the fighter & promoter side of things & calls it fairly.
yep, if chael never spoke of chael he would be one of the best, he plays many angles and most are funny and insightful
but when he makes himself part of the entertainment, I tune the F out
Oregon produced Colby and Chael...gimme something to root for
-oregon resident of 30+ yrs
I don't even mind when he hypes himself
Its part of Chael.
But I remember he had Chris Jericho on & told him a story about Vince McMahon that did not have 1% truth in it.
It made me realize if Chael can completely lie to a WWE guy about his boss, he can lie about things not as easily proven incorrect
Spoiler: Chaels Vince story
Chael said that Vince offered to buy the UFC from Lorenzo/Frank & that if he bought it, he would just fold it because he thought UFC was too much competition for WWE.
Not one part of that is true
I didn't used to like him at all, I thought he was an idiot but I saw a really genuine nice side to him after the Bisping fight abd changed my mind. It's just a shtick in a similar way to Conor's bravado. Chael's not the greatest fighter but he knows how to talk up a good fight.
He's not wrong. It's just that no business model can survive catering to ONLY the most ardent fans. All the profit comes from casual fans.
It's like when PRIDE kept bringing in crappy Pro Wrestlers for real NHB/MMA fights. It was a shit show for sure, but it got them viewers and asses in seats. And when PRIDE kept putting undeserving Japanese fighters up against then MW Champ Wanderlei Silva.
I didn't like it then, and I don't like it now. But it's something I have to accept if I want to see the fights I actually want to see as crap like this will fund the good fights.
That is just retarded. If Vince bought it and folded it than someone else would start it up again. I’m sure Vince would’ve had it written in the sale that the Fertittas couldn’t do it.
All of those fighters would fight somewhere...
Or depending on when this made up shit happened then Strikeforce, Bellator, EliteXC or some other org would become the UFC.
Agree, but outside of the actual logic your provided
There was no such attempt even.
One more Win for the Bad Guy
He is spot on in this one
Chael said something great on his podcast.
He said the difference between DC & Broc is ...
If you are on a deserted island & need to fight natives for food ... you want DC next to you
If you are on a deserted island & need to scare the natives to get their food ... you want Brock
