    People were talking like he was some badass hero for being gifted a title shot against the champion of his own division after 2 years of inactivity.

    We've literally reached a point where people celebrate if he goes and parties, sells whisky, or if he wins a round in a fight where he gets destroyed.

    Remember the days when he was the 2 weight world champ and supposed to become a GOAT?

    The man is completely pissing away his prime and people are celebrating it.

    Conor fans went from "Conor's gonna take his head clean off inside 1" to "It wasn't a knockdown" and "Khabib wasn't that dominant"

    Everyone who has fought Khabib so far has been dominated.

    TS is misrepresenting some invented character's opinion.

    I'm sure of it.

    I look forward to examples and links to prove him right.

    Conor will be fine as long as he has his biggest fan in TS AKA Mysterio.

    The guy literally has a good left cross and a decent left uppercut. That's his entire arsenal. His lead hand is useless. His kicks are more for show as are his knees. It absolutely blows my mind that people act like he is a magician on the feet just because Aldo wildly underestimated that left hand and because he beat up Eddie "I get dropped every fight" Alvarez. Let's not even talk about his life-and-death fights with Nate "I have 11 losses" Diaz.

    He's a manufactured "great." He'd be lucky to go 5-5 in the LW division now that everybody knows his mind games and that left hand are literally all he has.

    Expectations are low because he lost. If he wins his next fight you better believe he will get another title shot, whether its against Khabib, Tony or someone else.

    Of course we bash the guy for various reasons.....not defending his titles, pimping bathtub gin, the bus incident, etc.

    But he's made 9 figures. If he retired today, his children would never have to work. His prime came and went and he's still set for life, because he convinced his countrymen to follow him around the world.

    Kind of disturbing in a Jim Jones kind of way, but whatever.

    What do you make of his devastating win over Poirier and beating the current FW champ with a torn knee? Just out of interest.

    He beat Holloway when he was barely post-pubescent. Max literally went to a split-decision against Leonard goddamn Garcia a few months prior to his short-notice fight against McGregor. It's like asking me "what do you think of Joe Duffy tapping Conor in under a minute." Totally different fighter. Conor's win over Poirier is about as impressive as Michael Johnson knocking him out even faster. Both guys caught a guy with a suspect chin and put him away.

    Bravo, sir. You raised some excellent points.
