He felt his power and threw his game plan out the window. He even said as much. He got outclassed.

Honestly this Alvarez threw it away bs is just something Mcgregor haters made up to discredit his performance. Mcgregor is simply the superior fighter and Alvarez isn't as good a wrestler people think he is. Mendes wrestling > Alvarez.
Conor AV detected, your opinion is irrelevant.
I didn't make up anything, I like many others know and believe that he was pathetic in that fight.
At least make Conor earn it, make Conor have to put on a performance. Don't walk straight into his best and only shot 5-6 times.
Conor did put on a performance.... and Eddie didnt just "walk into" Conors best shots.... he got countered multiple times by the best counter puncher in MMA
Conor has a tendency to get into his opponents heads. Of course, his striking is very legit.
Now that a few months have passed, I'm curious to know if your beliefs are the same?
I ask this question because people always throw the "fixed fight" claims around, purely out of anger.
Do you still genuinely think the fight was "thrown" by Eddie?
The name checks out.
Eddie did try and do what he did to Pettis and Mendes (hold them against the cage/work TDs). The thing is almost as soon as Eddie put Connor against the cage Connor got off (something pettis and gilbert couldn't do). So I think that was the most impressive thing to me in that fight. I wasn't sure if Connor would be able to get off the cage if Eddie put him there and he did rather easily. Then again when I saw Connor in the cage he was massive and I was more confident in his ability to get off the cage when I saw that.
If two blokes gave each other them looks from across the room. I'd think they were star-crossed closet gay lovers.
lol Eddie Alvarez is a club fighter
You're new, it's not funny when 2017 accounts say it.
Eddie was just helpless on the feet, night and day difference. He had no way of getting close enough to wrestle. Conor hurt him with a checked kick, hurt him in the first real exchange, dropped him multiple times. He was just outclassed in every aspect. He was always one step behind Conor who fought almost perfectly.
Eddie fight was fixed hence why the contract thing was weird. If Eddie wanted a high paid contract , he had to fix the fight
Lol, kill yourself.
Alvarez underestimated him and got outclassed. Mcgregor has legit power!!!
Im no Conor "fan", and ive always liked Eddie.
But Conor mollywops him 100/100.
Why though lol?
There is no reason for me to think otherwise. Unless Eddie becomes some sort of amazing wrestling with a really good chin and defence i don't see what he can do to Conor as a threat.
