    There's a guy in this thread who thinks Mcgregor of all people will have figured out how to time Floyd's pull counter because Maidana did it once.

    There's a guy in support who thinks that posting a thread saying he googled mma hand slap and got two hits of Conor tapping out was a reason to start a thread. Seriously someone could corral these morons and set up a window cleaning business.

    He never gassed out before so badly in the first 2 rounds. It's reasonable to assume
    that fighting someone bigger, stronger, heavier, rangier than him contributed to make him a lot more tired.

    Of course it's not the only reason that happened.
    He does have a problem with his stamina anyway and most importantly as I said before, he underestimated Nate.

    He was preparing for a different opponent and he didn't bother to study Nate and exploit his weaknesses
    or to prepare for possible problems that Nate could have given him. He was too arrogant.

    He went out there and went for the kill, not pacing himself well at all and overextending all the time and getting in many but shallow hits.
    Diaz of course did his part. He boxed well, but he's not as good as Connor, and it was even more apparent in the second match.

    So all in all, the original post of Seano I quoted was biased.
    Apparently he isn't the only biased one here. The disdain about UFC is off the charts.

    let's not forget the fact that his opponent had a whooping 10days to get in shape and was partying on a beach 2 weeks earlier.

    I still think they could have picked an opponent that would have stood with him, like a Rampage or even a Kimbo. Though that wouldn't have lasted long of course, they'd get frustrated and then go the TD, even stand up guys like them.

    By the way, kind of on topic but I can't get enough of this fight, fucking hilarious. I love showing some UFC fanboy mates this one ha ha

    He can't gas that bad against Mayweather though. Sooner or later, his uhm 'head will come clean off', I think is the correct Conorology here.

    The Mayweather-McGregor World Tour is over for now, but folks still have a lot to say about the Aug. 26 mega fight.



    Rumor has it that misfortune befell the UFC lightweight champion in one of his sparring sessions, at least according to former WBO welterweight champion Jessie Vargas. In a chat with Villainfy Media, Vargas says that he heard through the grapevine that McGregor was knocked out by one of his training partners.

    "He got knocked out in sparring already, man," Vargas said, according to Darragh Murphy of JOE.co.uk.

    Vargas wouldn't say specify his sources, only adding, "The boxing world is small, it's a small circle."

    McGregor has regularly been sharing photos of his training and so far his training partners have been saying all the right things in regards to the MMA superstar's boxing skills.

    Since you already made up your mind, how does my post even affect you? Unless you're that fickle.

    Which I guess you are, seeing how sensitive you're getting over my post. Guess what, I have every right to tell others whether I think a fight is going to be boring or worth buying, you have the right to take heed or not.

    The only person here telling others what to do, is you dumbass. <{hfved}>

    Is that right? Why would he be sparring Rios to prepare for Floyd?

    Does Team McG pack it in if Paulie puts him on queer street too?

    Connor a clever fella, he knows that he will earn alot of money with a low risk of substantial damage due to the way Floyd fights. I would have a real concern for him if he stepped in to the ring with cotto/canelo/brook/spence/Thurman/Garcia. that would be potentially dangerous and they are not fights he would look to take

    Conor is so clever he lets himself being pictured on a private jet reading the newspaper upside down. He looked like a complete dildo in the first press conference and his boxing skills match that of a T. rex. Dude sucks.

    I got no sound here but I assume he probably said no, eh? Paid sparring partners usually don't tell tales.

    I wonder, when and if something like this happens, do fighter, team and sparring partner actually have 'a talk' about this sort of stuff? That it can't leave the gym? Or is that somewhat of an unwritten rule?

    He said he hasn't even met Connor, not to mention sparred with him or KOing him.

    Just got to listen to it.
    He also says he doesn't know who McGregor is before going on to mention that he watches UFC and watched McGregor get choked out by Diaz. I barely watch UFC anymore and I know who he is.
