DC seemed somewhat surprised he won, whereas Conor acted as if it was expected

    Conor was fighting a transitional champion who fluked his way to the belt whereas DC was fighting the no.1 guy in the divisions history

    Because DC did the same thing and had more trouble making 205 to fight smaller men

    Even Conor discredited his own win. Didn't he say post fight something to the effect of "you gotta have size, reach, attributes" in which he was implying Eddie had none of those. While Stipe had every physical advantage over DC. Both were incredible wins, but edge to DC

    Obviously Conor is miles ahead of DC.

    You could tell DC was panicking in that fight. Probably why he resorted to eye pokes.

    I wouldn't say that's discrediting his win at all. He's just pointing out the obvious of that you have to be significantly bigger than him to mitigate his skill advantage. Eddie's actually bigger, he's just not significantly bigger and is not longer.

    I wouldn't say Stipe had a huge size advantage over Stipe at all either. They're about the same size, it's just Stipe is much longer. However, Stipe doesn't properly use his length so it's pretty much pointless.

    Fair enough. I certainly wasn’t discrediting Conor’s win just pointing out he seemed to think Eddie didn’t have the physical advantages needed to beat him. But that could just go back to the start of this thread and tell us more about McGregor’s mentality instead of what he actually thinks. Stipe was significntly bigger than DC tho in every physical factor other than weight... and obviously the more skilled man won in both of the fights we are taking about

    Apparently everyone is supposed to act the same when they win. Of course dc expected to win.. And got emotional because he was first to hold hw and lhw at same time. Some people never get suoer emotional.. Look at fedor. . Win or lose he always is calm and respectful.

    DC Is going to be 40 years old. The Lesnar fight most likely will be his last fight and his legacy will be intact win or loose.

    Fun fact, DC is a whole one inch taller than McGregor but fights guys about 100 pounds heavier. How's that for confidence?

    A lot of guys could potentially be champ if they got to skip fighting any contenders like Brock did. Or like Conor did, for that matter. I'd never claim HW is a deeper division than LW, but the HW champ has always been seen as the greatest champ. And my main point was Stipe was the greatest hw champ in ufc history, while Alvarez had just won the title. The intention wasn't to hate on Alvarez, I'm a fan. I wanted Alvarez in the ufc for a long time.

    In fact, I'd venture they're exactly the same size.

    It’s just that his insufferable fans boys are just so easily trolled.
