    I met an Uber Driver last night that was a college wrestler and he said strikers should never pressure wrestlers. They should always maintain distance and back pedal to safe distance

    Additionally mentioning how Conor messed up against Khabib in that regard

    The dude was a try hard too.... he was like "lets just say you want me next to you in a fight"

    Conor goes balls to the wall every time win or lose.

    It's part of what makes him popular. Name a boring McGregor fight.

    Khabib proved he is the more complete fighter. Wrestling is King.

    Khabib took him down in the first 20 seconds, and he shot in from a good distance.

    It didn't matter what Conor did. He couldn't stop Khabib from getting ahold of him.

    Try hard? Maybe he was just trying to be cool and have a conversation with you. He probably knew his shit too.

    You sound like a try hard for claiming he’s a try hard on an mma forum.

    RDA kept Khabib away for a 1m and 12s basically just out-foot working him

    Mainly why i thought Conor would catch Khabib prefight

    Connor has been spoon fed easy opponents his whole career. Just like he will going forward. Anyone who stands and bangs with him gets KOd and anyone who can take him down wins (minus a short camp Mendes)

    True.

    Its hard for a guy to show his striking when his opponent dives for ankles within the first 20 seconds.

    I thought that the last three rounds of the second Diaz fight were an embarrassing slopfest.

    The first two were good though.

    So you found it to be a boring fight.

    I thought it was exciting with both fighters going for the kill non stop which is rare.

    Its was fight of the night.

    Conor was smartest for finessing over 4.5 million people into buying a boxing ppv against Mayweather.

    Watching Floyd casually slap Connie around like a red headed stepchild as he was flailing Paulie esque "power" shots was a bit boring, objectively.

    I mean, hilarious though, given how many people thought he'd KO Floyd.

    Boring in the initial watch? No.

    But it's the only one of his fights that I wouldn't sit through again.

    That’s another of Conor’s myth his footwork is not that good is not that special

    No, he was correct for pressuring Khabib, imo.

    Ring rust and not enough offense, like he himself said.

    C'mon son, who are you trying to kid? This has nothing to do with ring rust or offense. Not another ten years of training would do a damn thing to stop this. Khabib caught him easily from halfway across the cage and Conor wasn't even close to reacting on time. The fight was over right here, believe it or not.

    Look at the timer, 15 seconds into the fight.
