    There are levels to this game. Cody Garbrandt would've done better against Floyd, Conor just got embarrassed. Feels bad for MMA

    That video calls out every time Floyd lands a punch (like 4 in round 2), and ignores half of Conor's, but announces every time he misses or gets blocked. Conor won those rounds, but it's completely irrelevant, as Floyd was just playing the long game and drawing him into the later rounds where he completely outclassed him.

    So many butthurt responses.

    People going to play revisionist history card and act like they knew it was a farce all along.

    Many of us did, but about 50% of this forum was somewhat intrigued.

    Conor didn't win any round other than the first. He was just less efficient than Floyd and his punches had nothing behind. Most of those punches that supposedly landed, didn't land flush. Floyd was more efficient. Landed at a higher rate, defended at a higher rate, landed cleaner punches, didn't cheat like Conor did, so he deserves to win round 2 and 3, even though nothing very significant happened in those rounds.

    Floyd landed better shots going 4/8 than Conor throwing 3x as many punches but outlanding him by like 2.

    Conor got TKO'd not sure why they even need to bring this up. Nobody is doubting how good Floyd is. Nobody (with a brain) is overestimating how good Connie Mac is. He came in, got beat and collected a big paycheck. That's all there was to it.

    CoGar just got KO'd by rassler TJ. I get your point but no. The guy has a sub Artem level reach and is a midget compared to Conor.

    CoGar got caught by a headkick, not relevant. Unlike Conor, he actually has an amateur boxing background. He's the Marcos Maidana of MMA
