I must say that Conor's recent antics have annoyed me and I've really started to dislike him but I Just watched the 189 main event and Conor was by far the superior fighter. Mendes took him down, sure, and hit him with some hard elbows... but at no point was Conor in danger and the whole time he had the mindset that he was the better fighter - and it showed. The general theme is that Chad won the first round but having watched it again, all the power shots were Conor's and all the serious damage done was by McGregor. Taking someone down and having top control are great tools to win an MMA fight but if they don't win you the fight then the guy that's landing the big punches and kicks will defeat you. I think if you watch the fight closely you can see the whole time that Chad isn't happy with how it's going. Whether that's down to his camp or not is another debate but Conor absolutely owned that fight. Annoyingly.
