People clearly don't realize the impact of the body kicks that took Mendes' gas tank away... Full camp or not they would have had the same impact if not just taking a longer period of time... The pain of being beaten in the body is worse than being hit in the head.
So in other words he's saying that's why he lost?
You're a pro fighter arguably the second best in your division. You should be ready to fight beat anyone on pretty much any notice. The fact you lost, for whatever the reason, means you're not as good as you thought you were.
Said no one ever
When fighters say I'm not making excuses, but (here's an excuse), it makes my day.
The dude just sounds sour and childish. That said, I had the displeasure of meeting him in Sac some time back and he came off like a high school jock bully in a miniature frame, so these kinds of comments don't shock me.
Weidman looked like shit when he fought Maia on 2 weeks notice.
Guess he's not very good either
I'm not making excuses but, These are my excuses
For fuck's sake.
Mendes just never learns does he?
"I'm not making excuses...BUT"
Or maybe Chad is just a bloated bantamweight bodybuilder + Conor's constant pressure = TKO?
Fully prepared Mendes still loses by TKO in the 3rd round.
Damn these excuses are lame
Damn Chad you need to focus on EdGoat.
Forget about Conor for now.
Can't wait for the hematch
Everyone who takes him down wins the fight? Well he did take him down but Conor got back up every time. He doesn't remember that?
It's a late notice fight. Any moron can understand he wasn't fully prepared. And yes, the same result could have followed, but the facts are the facts.
"We would've gone back and round three would've been just like round two."
Erm...ahh...., Chad you got KTFO in round two. lol.
Sounds like Pettis. You took the fight under those circumstances, deal with it.
Guy is so annoying. Mendes lost before they even stepped in the cage. He doesnt have the mind nor the talent to beat Conor, even if he had 10 weeks to prepare. Im going to absolutely love it if they let Conor fight him again with a full camp just to hear the next excuse. Maybe it will be he "overtrained" :icon_lol: next time
Thats because of the weight cut though. Pretty sure Chad doesnt have a cut even remotely as hard as Weidman. Weidman probably puts on more weight in between fights than Chad.
I also think he had a flue or cold during that fight too...could be wrong though
What's he upset about? He made as much money in that fight as he did in his previous nineteen fights combined. That's a win in my book.
So basically all your excuses are okay because you like weidman as a fighter, but mendes's are not.
Tito Ortiz is famous for this ..
"i'm not making excuses but I injured myself during camp" - Crowd Boos...
Clearly you don't remember because the first round the only reason he got up was because it was the end of the round
You know what pisses me off? Everyone knows it should've been Frankie, and Frankie wouldn't be making any excuses. That's just the kind of guy he is.
Chad lobbied to get the fight and signed the contract. He has no business bitching about the outcome now.
Frankie would be making as well. As would any fighter who had that much success only to lose based on what seemed like lack of conditioning. I'd like to see a rematch between conor and Chad both with a full training camp to prepare for one another. That's the only way we'll know for sure
Americans making excuses, I love it.
Who wouldn't like to see full-camp Mendes vs full-camp 100% ACL McGregor? All of those are legit factors, and I have no idea why people are being bitches about it.
I support excuses. Dismissing them automatically is an intellectual cop-out.
"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." - Chad Mendes
ill be routing against him from now on lol
if that fight didnt end in the 2nd round, I think chad wouldve gotten heavily dominated based on how tired he was.
I'm not making excuses, however...
I read an explanation for why he lost and what he needed to do in order to win....what are the excuses everyone else read?
Conor kicked the shit out of him.
Kicked his heart out.
Boy got a whoopin.
You try fighting with a cracked skull!...
if a person opens with "i'm not making an excuse", then they're making an excuse
He made $500,000...he did just fine.
I do wish Chad had been humble, took the loss in his stride and waited for the rematch. That being said; when they have their rematch, I will be putting money on Mendes (again).
He seems to forget that when he has a full camp for Conor, Conor will have a full camp for him and not for Aldo.
And that also makes a huge difference, I don't think the end result would be much different.
I'm not making excuses, but, I'm about to make an excuse. Fuccccboi!
2 weeks is enough,
"his only way of beating me was tagging me on the feet"..... Which he did. Haha.
