(From El Chapo to Phoebe Buffay, my oh my how Conor’s impression game has fallen.)
It’s funny how much of quote unquote “modern journalism” and/or blogging has become based around sh*t we read on social media, isn’t it? A basketball player throws some shade at another basketball player? We write an article about it. An actor gives an incredibly vague update about a potential project? We write about that, too. Hell, we have at least three pages of archives devoted to Twitter beefs between fighters, for Christ’s sake. Twitter and Facebook are practically the hands that feed us nowadays.
No fighter seems to be more aware of this fact than Conor McGregor. The man damn near shattered the MMA blogosphere with a single tweet, pulled a Jon Snow and came back from the dead with a Facebook post, and then tried to force his way back onto the UFC 200 card with another Tweet, and each time, no less than a thousand articles were devoted to him for doing so.
So when the featherweight champion began tweeting up a storm earlier today, we pretty much knew that the best course of action would be to just sit back and wait for the storm to pass, then round them up and put them in the ONE place you could check them all out (other than, you know, his Twitter). So with that in mind, head after the jump to see what McGregor had to say about stuff and also things.
Shut up, you know you’re gonna.
