It's definitely going to take some time to get over it, but you know, that's just part of the game." "His only way of beating me was tagging me on the feet. And you know, he does a really good job of being in your face. He has that, like, Diaz style of punching. But anyone who can move around and stay light on their feet and take this dude down wins that fight every single time. I just, after scrambling around, and fighting for the amount of time that I did, I just wasn't able to get back to my feet and be light on my feet." "I'm not making excuses. I'm not sitting here saying that's the reason why I lost. But I feel that if I am completely prepared for that fight, I win that fight. Every single time." This kick I feel really hurt Mendes. It was in the first and he leaned into it. When I rewatched the fight I was thinking "Damn...did he take that kick on the chin/throat?" Those kicks man....Chad tried to be light on his feet but Conor cuts the cage off really well and damages you badly the whole time. If both are injury free/prepared I dont see it going differently next time for "Money".
