Mcgregor doesnt count to me... He's so transparent in trying to sell the fight with that nonsense that I actually respect him.
But how does it get you invested? Im genuinely curious about this because I give zero fucks about trashtalking. It's just pathetic and it puts me off of a scene if too many people do it. But a lot of people seem to be more invested, as you said. Can you explain why personally?
And no, Im not autistic.
