Granted, it’s not that hard to make Skip Bayless look like a fool; Especially when it comes to combat sports. The guy literally has no idea what he’s talking about. Leading up to the May/Mac fight, aside from Brendan Schaub, Bayless was one of the more deluded public figures.
Skip was the guy who told Floyd Mayweather Sr, “Conor McGregor is going to knock your son out”. He was also the guy that said that Nate Diaz was 40 lbs heavier and used sumo wrestling to beat McGregor. Back in January, he proclaimed, “There is no way that Mayweather wants any part of McGregor in boxing”.
Again, Skip does a fine job making himself look totally unenlightened about combat sports all by himself. When he screams until he is blue in the face at guests like actor Michael Rapaport, he gets wrecked in embarrassing fashion.
Rapaport schools Skip, simply because he won’t admit to or face the reality of what happened in May/Mac. It was an entertaining match between a fighter and a boxer. Period.
Conor is an elite fighter, but a less than average boxer. Most (normal) McGregor fans will agree with this sentiment, but there are some (like Skip) who refuse to educate themselves. Conor took his loss like a champ. I’m dumbfounded as to why Bayless can’t.
Actually, yes I can.
