    Great athlete and very talented. But his interviews are cringey. I seen him flapping his gums but not saying much. Kind of dumb and shallow. Has the brain of a 3rd grader.

    If a narcasist tells you hes humble, do you take him at his word?
    All this clown talks about is, "did you see me do blah? I am the best at blah, I am born entertainer, me, I, I, me, i, oh and by the way, I am staying humble.... hahahaha!!!

    There is nothing humble about him. Go watch some of his kickboxing fights, he has always been a showboat. Of course that does not take away from his skills, he just needs to be real about himself.

    Israel's hype seems similar to Conor's hype, good to have the belt but let's hold up to see if he's able to defend it against Yoel and Paulo; before getting in to deep waters with the GOAT...just put a few rubies on that belt before calling yourself the greatest...

    "Staying Humble" implies that he was humble at one time in recent history. ESPN MMA: please reference the one instance in his last 31 years when he was humble.

    Rematch is a waste of time, let the man move on to more skilled and interesting opponents. Although he dominated this fight, dude is 30 years old and needs to be further tested.
