    Where was this wide bouncy foot work in and out movement? He was smiling and laughing while in a striking exchange with someone who hadn't lost for 10 years

    Where was dark eyed lazer focused Conor in the walkout?

    He could barely make eye contact with the camera in the 229 walkout and his focus was elsewhere

    It seems like this was no longer a "this is my octagon" kind of ritual that he did before 229, he was just going through the motions

    There was definitely something much different in McGregors focus for this fight and it showed

    I don't think he could find his own pace. Thoughts?

    Weak excuses

    Against Aldo he was moving in and out, forward and back

    Conor's lateral movement is terrible and Khabib exploited it 15 seconds into the fight and took him into cardio hell

    If there is ever a rematch, or Conor comes back to fight somebody else, he will be razor focused again. Me tinks.....

    It's the same guy. Round 1 looked like round 1 of the Chad Mendes fight, it's just that Khabib isn't smaller than Conor, had a full camp, and outside of the blast double is a far better grappler.

    Ahh, great minds think alike. No worries, it was eerily similar, I even edited it to remove "he was going through the motions", cause I cant do my boy like that.

    Been out of the cage for a while, knew he had a tough matchup, been partying hard and has been coked out in every interview leading upto the fight.

    Lotta wars lotta parties, at 30 he's no spring chicken living that lifestyle and trying to compete at the highest level.

    Not sure wide bouncy footwork would work so well against Khabib.

    Too many drugs, he’s mentally not the same anymore and that was his greatest attribute next to his striking.

    Yeah
    Hard to be in it 100% when he obviously has focus elsewhere. He got rich quick, and is living the high life and messing around. To be honest he didnt do too bad considering that was the worst match up for him even if he was sharp

    Khabib is just better than anyone Conor has faced prior.

    My thoughts are you are just playing the same YouTube tinfoil hatter games that every overzealous fan of anything does when they don't have clear answers and want them.
    Whatever the answer is, you won't get it from screenshots and armchair body language analysis.
