Max Holloway and Nate Diaz are known as 2 of the biggest cardio freaks in MMA Yet Conor decisioned BOTH quite easily SHUT OUT Holloway 3-0, and won a very clear cut non-debatable 3-2 over Nate Conor even threw more and out landed Nate in round 4, the championship rounds How does Conor have bad cardio yet he out-hustled and out-paced a Diaz brother in round 4 of the championship rounds? Does Nate have bad cardio, or is Conor's cardio under rated? You have to pick one -Someone with bad cardio doesnt out-decision 2 cardio freaks Fun fact: Conor has NEVER ever lost a decision on score cards -Somebody with bad cardio doesnt dominate a much larger Diaz brother at a higher weight class, in the championship rounds, and win the 5 round decision -Someone with bad cardio doesnt go 10 rounds in his very first boxing match against an all time great boxer who's also known for exceptional cardio So why do some then continually run with the myth that Conor has bad cardio? Because he lost the first fight to Nate on short notice while having staph infection? The only thing more annoying then the myth that Conor has bad cardio, is the myth that Conor "get hits or has bad defense" Conor was dodging, slipping punches, and landing counters against Floyd freaking Mayweather in a boxing match. There isnt anyone in MMA whos even a fraction close to Conor's defensive skill, boxing skill, footwork, and counter punching skill The ONLY time Conor has even been hit with a big clean shot in MMA was Diaz 1. That fight was a rare extreme anomaly that likely wouldnt ever happen again if they fought 20 more times. The rematch proved it. It was a much smaller Conor who was scoring knockdowns on Nate and who was winning the championship rounds and who won the decision. Lets not forget, at 155 Nate's massive size advantages matter much less. A dehydrated Nate with a weakened chin doesnt last 2 rounds with Conor at 155. Especially where at 155 Conor has even more exceptional cardio. Which reminds me, why do people ignore that Conor was fighting way above his weight at WW, that 155 is much more natural to Conor? Anyone else find the myth about Conor's cardio annoying? What other anti-Conor/hater myths about Conor do you find annoying? It seems some people allow their hatred to completely blind them to the reality that Conor is an exceptional next level fighter. Its complete denial. It's kind of sad. Dislike Conor the person all you want (Conor is actually very humble and great to fans. You're simply being mislead or ignorant ) but be objective about his skills and how brilliant of a fighter he actually is.
