    Nah, he's looking rough maybe, but 30 is jack shit, it's just a number bigger than 29.

    Also we know nothing about this, it could've been his third fresh opponent.
    The truth of the matter is we know what Conor can do, we know what Khabib can do, they're both in their prime and it'll be a fucking hell of a fight.
    People denigrating either fighter are fucking idiots which this place isn't short of, I sway towards Conor but that's just me.

    How the hell did that hurt his status or marketability? There is absolutely no reason to think that. It probably helped if anything. It helped make him mainstream famous, not just mma famous.

    but he never failed any tests for the first fight...when he comes back, we'll see how he does...I suspect he'll fight exactly like he did before..probably better with the time off...but who knows...

    going 10 rounds with floyd absolutely helped his status...he wasn't expected to win anyways...I've always been a fan of his, but i know 100% that he couldn't and wouldn't beat floyd...not a chance in hell...floyd has 49 fights under his belt..not to mention how many titles he's won...and he's beated some really good fighters...the list of champions he's beaten is mind boggling.

    "Jumping the shark" means there is nothing left to do, and settling for an absurd script just to fill up an obligation to air an episode. It also implies that everyone's heart is no longer in it, and they're just going through the motions.

    Jumping the Shark has nothing-NOTHING-to do with Conor-Khabib.

    Actually I think it works,

    Conor is setting up for an absurd script of feeding himself to a Russian bear when he already has 100 million dollars and in his heart he is no longer a real fighter<DCWhoa>

    He was hurt, and hurt bad, here is a friendly reminder for you and all the other little McNuthuggers who are still in denial about the beating and brain damage he received from Floyd.

    Fixed it for you.

    3 months notice... he could've had 10 years notice, it wouldn't have mattered

    Came back and whooped Nate's ass... a majority decision is whooping someone's ass?

    badly scored fight...I've mentioned this tons of times on here...the round conor scored 2 knockdowns should have been a 10-8 round..and would be if scored now..it should have been then as well...I thought conor beat nate convincingly, and wasn't all that close..competitive, but not all that close..and I agree, no matter how long conor had to train, he'd never beat floyd...floyd has been doing it for far too long..and conor is more suited for mma..

    I've seen that fight 3x and I just didn't see conor hurt. I saw him get extremely tired..and you don't get brain damage from one fight...brain damage occurs over many fights and many years of wars...not from 2 rounds of taking punches, and not even going down once.
