    Josh Thomson, a fighter that has never been known for his power, was able to not only stop Diaz, but get his corner to throw in the towel in under 3 rounds with strikes. Conor couldn't do this with 2 chances and over a half hour's worth of fighting. Yet we're led to believe Conor has "once in a lifetime" power. I don't get it. Conor has a strong left hand but nothing we haven't seen many times before. He's a great marketer but he's going to fall hard. And very soon...

    Josh Thimpson handled Nate Diaz. That was brutal, he didn't buy into any of the stockton nonsense he just put Nate in his place. Even had big brother throwing in the towel.

    Meh

    He caught Nate perfectly with that head kick and follow up, much like Jones did DC.

    Diaz bros have Iron chins.

    You FOOL!!!

    He doesn't care about falling, he is in it to make cash money and get out of the game. He doesn't give a fook about legacy or rise and fall. In episode 2 of the May-Mac, he said he got in to martial arts for self-defense and not for the aspiration of being a world champ.

    That fight was on 4/20. Diaz was obviously high so it doesn't count.

    True. But it's good to remind his fans of his true motives.

    Thompson is the better MMA fighter, so is Khabib, Ferguson, Barboza...

    Conor is a midget though.

    Will never get tired of seeing Thomson batter Nate so bad he had his big bro throw in the towel

    Yup. Weird how Conor fans act like knocking Diaz down somehow proves he has godlike power when Thomson KO'd him and he is a known wrestler with limited, if any, power.
