    gotta love little guys online trying to insult me...You'd cower in fear if you ever seen me in real life, little guy...and losing to floyd would be no different than losing a tennis match to federer...different sport...instead of giving conor credit for actually going 10 round with an all time great boxer, you rag on him..and you call me the moron...haha like it or not, conor won the first 3-4 rounds..fact...this was conor making his pro debut...against a many time multiple weight world champion with 49 fights..a guy whos been boxing for over 20 years...so keep calling me moron as you lose another argument...haha..

    I would bet $5K you’re wrong. Absolutely won’t be last time he fights win or lose.

    and how was conor knocked out, if he was never even knocked down once...the ref stopped it cause conor was totally gassed and couldn't defend himself...

    I kind of disagree.
    Conor did not lose his star power after DIaz loss.

    If Khabib beats him, you will see a lot of excuses (i.e. his long time out) and it will never end.
    He will then (probably) fight Diaz again or get another shot at the belt.


    Wait and see...

    Predict something positive, negativity is so dull.

    Skill wise, idk...he has been out two years.
    But, I think he has jumped the shark with WME/UFC.
    I don't think they are willing to keep shelling out cash to pay for him anymore....with his outrageous pay, lawsuits, and refusal to do promotion/media, I think he is becoming more expensive/trouble than he is worth fighting once in a few years. Rather than to continue to pay peanuts to more capable and willing fighters who will fight consistently.

    I think this fight in particular is the higher ups testing the waters with him, putting him up against a fighter he has the possibility of losing bad too and not pushing the media to test his numbers.

    Just my opinion.

    Didn't say it would be the last time he fights. I said it would be the last time he fights under the UFC banner.

    You don't know what jumping the shark means.

    Speaking of 'losing', you lost all credibility with this post when you included the loss to Mayweather. I don't feel like taking the time to explain all the reasons why.

    He is going to jump in the cage with a shark.

    Followed by retirement.

    And sooner rather than later, zero money.

    ...which may compel him to come out of retirement...onward to disaster once again.

    Kids think 30 is fucking ancient, that's how you know you're posting in a thread made by someone who's proud of his crayon collection.

    I think Conor takes this, however Woodley had excellent hands and Conor gets tagged more than he should, Woodley wins convincingly, khabib loses heavily.

    In all fairness Conor is looking way older than 30

    In the face he is about 40 at this point. I think we will see a slower Conor.

    His sparring looked pretty shit too.

    He looks stuck like this against Khabib and he'll be ragdolled.
