    Sorry to burst your bubble, but nut-swinging has yet to be introduced as and Olympic event. But when it does you and Conor will no doubt make a great tandem and be a shoe-in for gold.

    Can he do the splits? Conor can. There is more to athleticism than jumping.

    I'm talking athletic ability, you tit. If someone has a crazy vertical like him and you add years of martial arts experience, that makes him a million times more dangerous then some schmuck off the streets learning martial arts, lol.

    We know LeBron's a flopper/pussy.

    Someone whose gas tank lasts for only 7 minutes is not an elite athlete.

    By far best Conor troll thread today. TS, if you aren't paid by his public relations team, you should be.

    Yeah, there is more to it than jumping. But doing a split, something most people can do with time and effort, is less of an indicator of incredible athleticism than the ability to jump 61 inches, which is something only a few people will ever achieve--especially when they have nearly 300 pounds of weight anchoring them down.

    The guy in the gif isn't a professional box jumper. It's not like he isn't lighting fast and very strong too, a couple of other indicators of superior athleticism.

    Fame != A-Level athlete.

    Conor is great and all...and I'm a big fan, but I'm not sure I classify him as A-Level athlete. Maybe from a promoting standpoint and image/brand exposure he matches those other professional sports athletes, sure he's on another level than others in the UFC, but on athletics alone it takes some serious genetics to be considered A-level IMO and Conor doesn't have it.

    Heck I would even argue that his loss to Nate proves he's not athletically an A-Level athlete based on how he gassed and the way it ended.

    Definitely he's A level in his ability to KO people early. Most of his attributes are ordinary. His cardio and submission defense are below average.

    Because the moment you take steroids you immediately become a top shelf athlete.

    To be A level someone should at least be well rounded in their sport. I guess to be A level you need to be one dimensional and super popular. At least Honda made it to the Olympics with her one dimension.

    I think you meant to say that Conor is the only A-level talker in the UFC. If that's what you meant, I agree.
