    Conor looked cute, like a cute UFC mascot. Think Mickey Mouse:

    Watching Khabib smash Mickey Mouse was heartbreaking in a way. This may sound a little bit out there for some people but it's how I feel.

    Yeah man I was really tuned it. It’s like I could feel McGregors emotions. I also felt Ferguson’s love for the game and the pain he feels being disrespected. I also remember understanding that Derrick Lewis doesn’t want to fight and this is the only thing he has to make ends meet. Sorry bro just venting.

    Completely different. He KNEW he had no chance vs Floyd and he was in a win win situation. He was about to make more money then he will ever make in his life, so he didn't care. He had a shitload of pressure VS Khabib that he didn't have VS Floyd

    Its not that he didn't care, its that he wasn't confident. Who can blame him? Khabib is the worst stylistic matchup for him outside of GSP

    It's not excuses, it's commenting on what he saw. There was definitely simething off about Conor before the fight.

    Never seen Conor so flat footed. He was way to focused on the takedown and trying to defensively grapple than he was on his own game. Look at the Eddie fight compared to this (granted Khabib is a different fighter) he was not fighting his fight....at all

    If there’s a rematch he needs to be landing shots/cutting angles every moment at distance and accept the takedowns/minimize damage when Khabib gets them because he will never be able to out grapple khabib defensively.

    I felt he was so focused on the takedown it made him fight very abnormally. Maybe that will always happen with Khabib but I think Conor has the ability to make major adjustments now that he has been in there with him.

    Normally I dont buy into the whole "body language" thing, but I did think on his walkout that he didnt have the same confidence.

    Somehow, Khabib fans and Conor haters think this is an excuse. Bull the fuck shit it is. It's saying Conor knew what he was up against. For all the hatred people may have for him, he's no dummy. This was his nightmare match up and he knew it.

    hearing his coach on Rogan as well, seems the whole training camp was wrong mindset - way too defensive.

    Khabib fans relax. Your guy is a T-Rex Caesar Genghis khan mfcker who couldn't have come out better, and in retrospect even jumping out of the cage to attack conor's team comes off as crazy bad ass.

    Conor looked like shit, I said this in another thread that even featherweight conor would have been more trouble for khabib that night. He was impotent. Not even that puncher's chance - to the extent that I don't even want an immediate rematch and I'm a nuthugger.

    Im sorry but his best days in a cage are over.
    Ive been trying to tell it on this site but the McConor fans hate me for it but Conor is a finished fighter on the elite level. Ive been watching boxing all of my life and mma since its infancy and you can spot a finished fighter if you have seen 1 enough times.
    Everybody looks good when theyre winning a fight but when you start to get hit back, and youre starting to tire your heart comes into play, you see a mans spirit in those moments. Weve seen Conors spirit and hes just not a born warrior, no amount of skills/talents/athleticsms can make up for a lack of heart. Conor has plenty of pride but what little heart he had, was beaten out of him in his fights with Floyd and Khabib. Things wont end well for Conor.

    Not necessarily aiming at the ts, but I see a lot of Contards saying Khabib was shook, mentally breaking and was an easy opponent. Yet the fight happens and hardly any of them gives Khabib any props & claims Conor was just having an off night.
    It's pretty ridiculous tbh.

    I think the things you're talking about are the minority and not the general consensus. Unless you got trolled.

    So here is the breakdown for you: Khabib is the better fighter and Conor knew it. His only hope was to enrage Khabib behind control so Khabib would run to him with his hans down. When he couldn't break Khabib mentaly, he was fucked. Conor knew exactly what's going to hapoen inside the cage if Khabib can remain cool. The fight is gonna be one sided.

    While I agree to an extent, had he knocked him out in the first round people might have attributed it to his new "serious" approach

    Some of these guys seem blinded by hate for Conor.
