    Did you have to ask specifically for a custom prop? What book indulged that?

    No reason to gloat. Just because Conor lost emphatically doesn't make your points right.

    Agree.

    I thought Conor looked like his instincts were fried from all of the partying and drugs. Not because he was never good all along. No way does Khabib land the most significant strike of the fight in a battle with 2016 Conor

    The threat of the takedown opens up the striking. Conor was petrified of being taken down, leaving openings.

    I don't think his instincts were fried & he actually scrambled quite well. He just isn't the grappler Khabib is...We all knew he needed the kill shot in the first, didn't get it & the fight went down as expected from there. The people trying to justify their bets on Conor now are the people who discussed the fight to death when all we all knew it was the most basic striker vs grappler fight in the last 2+ years
