    I hear a lot of claims on this board that Khabib didn't fight the best Conor McGregor and that if it was the "205 Conor" he would have beat khabib for sure. I find this utterly ridiculous.

    Itreminds me of this mythological creatures like motivated BJ, healthy Shogun, Chuck with that look in his eyes, sea-level Cain, etc.

    It is only an excuse that Conor fans use and abuse but it has no proof nor basis. Take the loss on the chin like Conor says himself that's all.

    Yes.
    Conor hasn't really got any better or worse since before the Mendes fight.
    Khabab would have been a terrible matchup for him at any point in either of their careers.

    If Connor can lose that much skill in 2 years even though he had a huge boxing match in between which he had a camp for and he had more than 2 months camp for Khabib then I guess the fans are right it’s not him. He’s not talented enough to keep his talents.

    Eddie was just an easier matchup for Conor, especially an Eddie who thought he could box with Conor.

    Pre-Floyd Conor would've smashed Khabib.

    Nope, not even close.

    It was the dry ice smoke in the octagon that affected his performance. His muscle fibers were to cold to use the fast twitch in round 1 so Khabib was able to land the TD.

    Had he taken a shot of proper 12 he would have warmed up and smashed Khabib.

    Everyone knows No Booze Conor always loses.

    Conor is still the same he's always been. Khabib is a special guy, no shame getting wrecked by him.

    Khabib would smash Eddie and Conor on the same night. And then do an Assassin jump on Eddie's wife in the crowd.

    Lmao

    Cowboy beat the fuck out Eddie not that long before 205. Conor fans act like he beat the LW GOAT or some shit. Lol, Eddie was 3-1 with two shitty decisions before the Conor fight.
