On Conor & UFC 189 …

And so here’s the thing about Conor McGregor, and fighters like him…it’s our gullibility that is always at stake. That’s what’s fun. We know we’re either being fools to believe in him (like he believes in him), or we think we’re too smart to fall for that. In any case, that’s a good dynamic, having your powers of perception played with so freely. That’s why people seek to monetize their hunches through gambling.

Good way to describe gambling from the MMA Fighting blog. It’s obviously intuitive, but … watching Conor’s display brings an uncanny sense of reality to this characterization.
