    has yet to win a fight in MMA or boxing as a dad.

    Conors last performance as a free man without a kid was at UFC 205 arguably the best and most impressive performance of his career.

    Is Conor going the way many fighters have gone when they have a kid at their peak and are never the same? BJ Penn talked about it before how he was never the same blood licking savage he was after having a kid.

    Will Conor ever be the same?

    I also believe decaffeinated Stipe should get more attention

    Conor won that fight. He knew by tapping to a neck crank he ensured another big payday against Khabib. It is known.

    Yeah, it’s like how Pacquiao deliberately let Marquez knock him out cold in their 4th fight because he knew they could profit from a 5th fight of their trilogy

    Another fun fact: Khabib has not lost since becoming a father.

    Having a kid changes your life. Conor isn't in his prime mentally.

    Khabib is much mentally sturonger than guys like Conor and BJ Penn. He is a very strict, conservative guy with values and principles he sticks to.

    This is more so talking about the fighters with shaky mentality like Conor and BJ that could have a life altering thing like having a kid affect their fight performances

    Having a kid has a biological effect on men, its been shown that when you spend a lot of time around them your body will reduce your testosterone to make you less aggressive and a better nurturer, that might explain why Conor did not seem his usual self this time, he has been trying to be a family man rather than a wild and crazy bachelor.

    There's also the psychological aspect: before he might've felt like he had nothing to lose and was truly going in there to kill or be killed, but now he has a son (and apparently another kid on the way) that he has to think about being there for in the future, so the idea of taking brain trauma in a fight has to be 10x scarier now than before, he doesn't want to be one of these guys slurring their words at 40, so he was probably shook about what happens if the fight goes south for him.

    Best post of the day.

    To be fair, Conor had those two loses against undefeated f*ng monsters. He didn't look the same last saturday, though.

    Technically child understands everything while being in mother's womb, so he was able to feel UFC 205
