    And he did it in a wrong weight class, cause he was too lazy to cut weight, confirmed by his coach too. He fights at his comfort zone, and he forced other LWs to fight there too.

    So this guy has a total of 5 fights in the last 4 years:
    -Loss against Nate. Nate was late replacement and had no training camp, so the fight was moved to 170. Nate said that he insisted the fight was at 155, for what it matters.
    -Split decision win against Nate, again at the wrong weight class,they had no business fighting at 170. All non Conor fans think Nate won this fight too.
    -Win against Eddie at 155. He got the title shot with a record of 0:0 at 155 and 0 title defenses at 145. And Eddie had 0 title defenses himself, so technically he wasn't a champ too. Eddie got KOd 2 more times since, one time by unknown guy in One. COnor clogged the 145 division for an year now.
    -Loss against Habib at 155. Onesided.
    -Win against 4:6 Cerone who was on a 2 fight losing streak via KO/TKO. Again at the wrong weight class, cause he feels comfortable there, not wanting to cut weight. He fought 3 times at 170, but he never fought a WW yet, only LWs.

    SO now he is 2:3 or 3:2, however you want to look at it and he is 1:1 at 155, with his last win at 155 in 2016. Dana wants to give him a title shot at 155 again. We are witnessing out sport getting WWEd people.
    I don't have anything against the little Irish man, he is interesting to watch win or lose, but, let him earn that title shot for once. Let him fight and beat 4-5 contenders and earn it, in the right weight class. Tony is 12:0 and still hasn't had his title shot.

    He fought Cerrone at 170 because he wanted to face best version of Cerrone. Not some dehydraded chinless 155 journeyman version of Cowboy. It was basicly lightweight fight without Cowboy dehydrading himself to make weight. Conor is coming for LW and WW titles and haters are on last gasp desperation mode.

    Conor handpicked Cerrone cos he knew Cerrone is weak to that strategy

    You literally just made up Cerrones record to sound bad. Conor beat an 0-2 Cerrone. Conor beat a 36-13 Cerrone. You can spin it anyway you want. I hate these false narrative threads.

    Yes, COnor fought at 170 because he wanted the best for his opponent.

    <Huh2>

    No wonder why Conor fans are the most hated in the sport.

    There is nothing false about it. Cerone is 4:6 in his last 10 fights. He was also on a 2 fight TKO/KO losing streak when he face Conor.

    I don't necessarily agree or disagree with your post, but that profile picture and username...

    For the people that can't get the perspective of how foolish this is; imagine someone else putting a picture of you as their profile picture. It's just so bizarre to do that with the picture of another man. You have yourself, so make the best out of it. You control your body and you are your own avatar. You don't have to hide your existence behind someone else's face. Be proud of yourself.

    Even better example - can you imagine your father doing what you are? Putting the profile picture of another grown ass man, using a username idolizing him, and glorifying him on an Internet forum? No.

    Doesn't apply just to you, but to every fanboy of anything in existence.

    His father probably has a picture of another grown man, on some forum.

    I thought it was quite impressive. The first guy in the UFC to knock out guys in 3 weightclasses.

    Aldo (champ) fw
    Eddie (Champ) lw
    Cowboy (many times contender) WW

    Maybe a troll thread but I'll bite. If you wanted to write a post that looked only at the negative side of Conor's history, there's more you coulda said. Nate had a bad camp for the rematch. Eddie got a bullshit title shot, passing over Tony Ferguson. Conor broke some rules against Khabib.

    Now onto correcting your post, which is littered with exaggerations and sometimes outright inaccuracies...

    What you meant by the "wrong" weight class wasn't explained. But dehydrating 15+ lbs of water tends to be bad for one's body. Cerrone was happy to fight at 170; Conor was actually doing him a favor, in that Cowboy is the bigger weight cutter.

    Nate wanted more money for the fight to be at 155. During negotiations, at the amount they were offering him, he was willing to go to 165 but not 155. Conor gifted him an extra 5 pounds on top of that.

    He beat Nate by majority decision, not split decision. And it was a clear win. The judge that scored it a draw had a bad scorecard. Plenty of non-Conor fans scored the fight for Conor. And you have to question the validity of an opinion that comes from someone who isn't a fan of Conor McGregor.

    Technically, Eddie was champ, under the UFC's consideration of who the champs were. You might not have considered him the division's best fighter, as I didn't. But technically, you're incorrect. You're too concerned with divisional structure and rankings and records. Pay more attention to fighters' skills and styles. You left out that Conor putting on arguably the best UFC performance ever, is impressive, regardless of how much you criticise Alvarez.

    Khabib fight wasn't as onesided as you claim. He's the first fighter to officially take a round off him. If you score the fight correctly, then he took two rounds off him. Meaning he actually won more rounds than Khabib did. You also left out the details behind Conor's injuries and bad camp. And you left out the fuke nature of Khabib's win, and how Conor would beat him in the rematch. To the extent that Khabib is scared to even accept the fight.

    Conor fighting Cerrone at 170 is something that makes him look better, not worse. He chose not to dehydrate Cerrone. And still finished him in 40 seconds. More impressively than anyone ever. And you've shat on Cerrone while ignoring all the good about him. That he has great recent wins. And that his losses are to top level fighters (all champs and contenders). And of course, he holds all those UFC records. Also forgetting that Cerrone posed some stylistic problems for Conor, such as him being the tallest guy he's faced, a great kicking, wrestling, and sub game, with great cardio.

    Were the UFC to focus more on titles, rankings, and records, than skills and styles, as you'd like, then they'd be closer to the WWE, not further from it. You seem to be the WWE fan. Also on this point, Conor was quiet in the media this time, and barely talked trash. Not WWE-like. Conor having to fight 4-5 times is unrealistic, and doesn't account for the fact that champions need contenders to fight. Current supposed top contender is only on a 2-fight streak. And again, you're focusing on the numbers, not the fighters' skills and styles. Finally, if you didn't have anything against the little Irish man, you wouldn't have referred to him as the little Irish man. I'm honestly surprised you managed to type Conor instead of Colin, Conrad, Conrat, Conman, etc. So props for that.

    The bottom line is that Conor Mcgregor beat a 2nd rate fighter with so much glass in his chin he ought to be a chandelier.
