You should show more respect to Lee's game. Athletic and well-rounded guy who can be a contender. Beating Drinaldo in Brasil was no joke.
Chiesa is a solid fighter at this point too. That's a good match.
But the referendum on their personalities is on point.
I used to like Lee, but he went company man, and cut off the fighter's noses to spite their faces in mocking Iaquinta when he went Raging Al on the UFC's mistreatment of fighters. That was really off-putting.
As for Chiesa, he's one of those irrational guys when in the heat of the battle if you mention anyone in their family, regardless who it's actually disrespectful to if at all, they lose their minds. That's a bad look for civility. If Lee wanted to emulate Conor or even better, he'd have responded with some pro wrestling schtick about how he's more civilized and he'd win one for the evolution of a species. Some British guy used to do that in WWF, I forgot his name, but that would have been funny and I'd like to see someone bring that mentality to MMA. Chael did to some degree. He's still the gold standard over Conor. If he had a country behind him, actual entertaining style, and didn't choke; he'd have been the full service GOAT.
lol probably Regal.
