    Supposedly he injured it a few weeks before the fight with Jose. (The fight Jose pulled out of)

    He wasn’t training wrestling at all during camp and trying to just remain stable on the feet.

    If it’s true, why did he take a short notice fight vs chad mendes?

    Was it because he had a built in excuse for a L or was it because he is just that good and on another level mentally...?

    Jose pulled with a bruised rib right and RDA with a bruised foot

    Conor had a 80% tear 2 weeks out from fighting chad mendes.

    That’s crazy

    I don't buy it. If he did, he certainly didn't show it. The first move that either guy threw was Conor throwing a spinning back kick.

    And Diaz weighs 210, and had two full camps to prepare.

    Didn’t he beat max Holloway in round 3 after having it torn completely in round 2? Is it that unbelievable?

    Conor was 100% healthy on a Full Camp while Mendes just rolled off the couch on 2 weeks notice.

    Full Camp Mendes destroys Full Camp Conor.

    He tore it himself, trying to pass the crushing guard of Max "Blue Belt Training Out Of His Hawaiian Garage" Holloway. I've read absolutely nowhere that said it was a full grade tear.

    Hint, doctors don't say a percentage.

    Only excuses permissible are his opponents excuses on sherdog.

    His opponents are always:

    Overrated
    Past prime
    Club fighters
    Unfit
    On holiday
    Not trying

    Etc etc

    Buddy. If Conor's ACL was actually torn he wouldn't have passed the pre-fight medical exam. He would've been taken off the card by the athletic commission. This is how sports works.

    Forget about the fact ACL reconstruction can up to a year to recover from, if ever.

    No it was pretty much healed by fight night but it hindered his training in camp
