Conor McGregor just lost the biggest fight of his career. Many McGregor haters and Mayweather fans are saying that McGregor is a loser, they are laughing at him and saying he sucks. Many MMA and Conor McGregor fans are disappointed about the result. But if they can stop and think of all that Conor has gained from this fight then his fans wouldn’t feel as disappointed about the results and his haters wouldn’t be so quick to laugh at him.
What has he gained?
Let me take just get the most obvious benefit out of the way. Yes Conor made a lot of money for fighting. More than he will ever need. But even if we take the money out and see that the remaining gains are still worth it.
More people know Conor because of this fight. There were many people that had never even heard of Conor McGregor before the fight but they certainly know who he is now. He had a huge fan base and he was popular before but this exposure has certainly increased his fame, notoriety and popularity. He is now more marketable as a fighter and this has increased his earning potential greatly.
3. Peace Of Mind
He doesn’t have to wonder what would happen if he faced Mayweather in the ring. He doesn’t have to wonder if he would win or knock him out. Or if would get out classed and get his tail whooped. Or if he would’ve been able to fight a good fight, silence his skeptics, get in 100+ significant strikes and win some rounds. He doesn’t have to wonder, he knows. Many people are too afraid to take risks and as a result they lose their peace of mind. They will always wonder what would have happened if only they were brave enough to just try.
Conor will never wonder “What if?” when it comes to Mayweather. Now he knows.
4. Better Skills
Let’s face it he’s probably a much better striker and puncher because of the training and preparation that he went through for this fight. It will improve his skills as a mixed martial artist and as a boxer.
Many people said that he wouldn’t be able to land one punch on Mayweather. Not only did he punch Mayweather, he did it 100+ times. He did it more times than an other fighter has been able to do in Mayweather’s last 9 fights. If you can’t respect that, then you are simply bias.
More importantly , he gains more self respect. This is priceless.
McGregor has showed us that it is better to play than it is to watch. Even in losing, the pros out weigh the cons.
It makes me think of the man in the arena.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ~Theodore Roosevelt
Losing is simply better than watching.
