    Conor was never the same after what Floyd did to his cranium.

    He jumped the shark a while ago. He is now looking at annihilation.

    I believe this as well.

    He has a chance but a smaller window to make it happen, and less ways to make it happen.

    He will likely be destroyed.

    Then why will this be "the biggest UFC fight ever"?? He didn't get KOd either, the ref stopped the fight in the 10th round.
    He lost and it's still the biggest ever.

    The only people who care about memes on social media seem to be you. He's still going to do 1million+ PPVs.

    He jumped the manlets of the FW division
    Then he jumped El Dana
    And of course famously jumping the coveted title defence
    Next might be the IRS

    Could be.

    I agree that Mcg had a easy way to the title but to say he jumped the shark it's early. let's see how the fight goes.

    He still lost to floyd. Do you suppose the general public will consider hima big winner and general alpha male for losing to a tiny retired 40 year old? You are only a winner if you win. He also earned less than floyd YAY GO MR SECOND PLACE GUY WOOO

    Conor fans are beginning to admit it<seedat>Big names, but stylistically favorable matches against non wrestlers and small men.

    Only times this ever happened, Nate and Mendes never had camps

    I don’t believe you even watch MMA, let’s break this down

    I don't think you get the term "jumping the shark".

    Jumping the shark is continuing past when you should have finished, which is debatable


    Anyways, If Conor beats Khabib, he will be 10-1 in the UFC, still only double champ ever,

    Daniel is Champ Champ, Conor is Stripped Stripped

    only having a single loss in a weightclass that doesn't actually exists,

    That weight class not only exists, it’s one of the oldest

    and against Floyd Mayweather in boxing.

    He took the fight, he wanted the fight against a smaller man with brittle hands, who took Conor to school

    Your entire post is delusional bullshit

    He said "double champ"...last I saw DC is the CHAMP at LHW and the CHAMP at HW. Be butt hurt all you want with your nose up Jones' ass but it doesn't change facts. DC is a double champ.

    The fight was close, close enough for people to keep talking about it. I had it a draw with the 4th being a 10-10, neither fighter did anything to win the round convincingly. So there was no ass whooping handed out by Conor.

    So again, those were not facts, but your opinions

    I really dislike Conor but you simply cannot dismiss his resume at this point.

    Counting the Mayweather fight against him is ridiculous, it doesn't speak to his abilities in MMA at all.

    I fully expect Khabib to crush him, but to be honest, If Conor knocks him out, I won't be shocked.

    Losing to Floyd generally has invalidated the careers of everyone he’s faced. Because it’s so embarrassing.

    Not sure thats what the term means. The bus and dolly incident would be the point I would say Conor jumped the sharks. Not getting old and losing his fame.

    That’s not how you use that phrase.
