    That´s a lot of conjecture and whataboutism. Conor ran for parts of the fight. Those were not resets. Don´t deny that and look silly. (it was probably the smart thing to do, since his cardio was in a bad place) I do agree that the majority decision was total BS, it was a clear Conor win.
    But facts are facts.. Conor was training. Nate was vacationing. It was not the blowout you made it out to be.

    Nope. He's a hand fed lucky overrated fighter... Until he beats jbj, DC, a bear, the bears cubs, beats max again, ko prime Aldo, not actual prime Aldo, and doesn't spend the money he earned.

    Ok..we aren't too far off in our disagreement...haha do you think it's weird that nate performed better, without a full training camp, than with? I don't think it made one bit of difference...remember when stipe fought reem? reem literally turned his back and ran away...but stipe went after him, got him down and finished him...I don't think conor ran, but if he did, it's up to nate to stop him...a fighter will only do what he is allowed to do...I think conor was trying to break up nates momentum..which boxers often do..

    A lot considered him a good, but no one was calling an ATG.

    Your level of intellect becomes obvious when calling people you know nothing about a “noob”.

    He was literally the #2 ranked fighter in the world over a decade ago, behind only BJ Penn, and it was in dispute who should actually be #1. Over a decade ago. And he's still top 5 to this day. And was nearly that entire time, actually achieving #1.

    Saying Eddie isn't an all time great is silly. He absolutely is.

    I think he is a good fighter but I also realize that he almost always has the size advantage. That is a big advantage. If he loses to a Khabib he will have a losing record against fighters that are not smaller than he is. He will be 2-2 over the last 4 or 5 years. 2-3 if you count his loss to Floyd.

    This is his most important fight to date. He will be fighting a larger, stronger fighter that is considered to be one of the best grapplers in MMA. If he beats Khabib I will be sold on his greatness. If he loses it will be apparent that he is only successful when he has a size advantage. If he does lose what does he do next?

    That might be the first time in my life that I've actually heard that word.

    I think we may end up seeing a lot of "Conor only won because the fight never had a chance to go to the ground! Khabib would have wrecked him on the ground!"

    You don't become an ATG by scraping by fighters and not hold unto your belt "long" enough, but I suppose everyone has different standards for ATG.
