Cowboy Gave Up
In 2020, Conor McGregor defeated Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds. ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith roasted Cerrone’s performance on the broadcast. But the MMA community reacted badly because they thought he was being extremely unfair. They also believed that he didn’t have an educated opinion.
Smith said: “Here’s the deal: 15 seconds in, ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone was done. He got hit with those shoulders in the clinch, and he was done. It looked like he gave up, it was just an atrocious performance on his part.” Even Joe Rogan criticized Smith’s comments because they aged like sour milk (via Bloody Elbow).
