What will be left to be said at that point? What excuses will remain? When will the haters finally give Conor his due and admit he's an incredible fighter? Who does he have to beat? What does he have to do? KO'ing Aldo, p4p #1 In 13 seconds REALLY isn't enough for you to admit he's a great fighter?? Making the 155 champ look like a red head fighting his step dad wasn't good enough? Title defenses are IRRELEVANT, it's literally a completely arbitrary metric. Who the fuck did Rich Franklin defend his title against?? Do those wins matter AT ALL?? No, they don't. If LW was a joke and Conor had 15 title defenses against those jokes would that really impress you? I wouldnt be impressed. I want the best fighters to go after the toughest possible challenge, period, and that's what Conor is doing right now, and what he has always done. Conor has already stated he's defending his belt by the end of the year. So, if he comes back and defends against Ferg/Lee/Kebab, will you then give him his due? Is a win against one of those 3 REALLY better then a 13 second ko of prime aldo????
