Am I the only one who thinks it’s weird that Dustin and Conor are being so friendly?

    Khabib said he'll make conor humble and he's been humble ever since.

    <JonesLaugh>

    besides conors an established star now. he doesn't need to talk shit anymore. Both guys are fathers now, they're probably just eh lets just scrap. Different headspace as opposed to 6 years ago.

    any ppv conor does is an automatic 1m+ppv I don't see why he needs to shit talk to promote this one

    Conor tries to rehabilitate himself in the public eye and come across as humble and Poirier wants that sweet money.

    Dustin is simply adopting whatever strategy he needs to, to GET THE FIGHT done.
    He's decided being nice is the way to do it. And if it works, then....mission accomplished.

    McGregor thrives off pre-fight animosity, it gives him the opportunity to get in his opponent's head via trash talk.

    When his opponent doesn't reciprocate, he's at an disadvantage.

    Conor was a big ol' cunt back then. Never pretended to be 'humbled' by the beating he received in the future. So it's easier for the truest gentleman of MMA, DP, to get along with the fakeness of Conor's new niceties.

    Poirer brings it he won’t fold. He has fought like hell these past 6 years since their last scrap. He’s had numerous wars and has a depth to his will in the cage that VERY few have.

    Why do people care so much about how Conor acts towards his opponents lol

    If they're respectful to him, he's respectful to them. Holloway, Cerrone, and Poirier (in the rematch) have been the only ones who have taken a non shit talk approach against Conor.

    Wrong. Conor is always playing mind games, that work he put on Cowboy Cerrone was great, he acted friendly then tries to KO him stiff the first second of the fight... really lets his opponents’ guard down

    Conor can’t shit talk now because of his actions away from the sport over the past few years.

    All the crap about being humbled changing him lol?

    So being nice to your opponent is supposedly a mind game now? That would be legit if 'Cowboy' actually showed up that night.

    Cerrone historically starts off the first round in 1st gear, and folds like a chair in big fights.

    The perfect opponent for McGregor.

    Everything is a mind game. Cowboy did show up, and got TKO’d in 40 seconds
