I'm going to call it right now. Conor gets one title shot in his career and loses. He is plagued by injuries and is always in the mix but never quite gets over the hump. Lets not forget, 145 is a pretty stacked division now, its not like flyweight.
Since when Conor was "plagued" with injuries? He had a sever knee injury and had to take time to recover, but it doesn't mean he is made of glass like pettis. He has some of the better stand up skills, on par with Cub and Aldo, the thing is his ground which next fight he needs to fight a wrestler, like Nick Lentz or Clay Guida, but prolly Dustin Porier will be next.
