    He makes a bunch of excuses after but at least he gave some credit

    He seems a bit older now as well.

    Stop kissing his ass Conman. You’re not going to get the rematch.

    He’s very well-rounded.

    Khabib has outstruck every guy he's ever fought, and a lot of his opponents like Iaquinta and Conor have praised his striking, yet some people will still say he has "amateurish striking".

    "Anyone can do it ONCE."

    I guess that's why he never defends titles.

    Talks about not giving Khabib respect... He never gives his opponents respect.

    Says that doing something once is easy... Says that doing things time after time is hard. That motivation diminishes... With that statement in mind, where does winning a belt but never defending it fall?

    Then says he deserves a rematch because there was controversy after the fight... Nope; he got smeshed real good and was exposed as a desperate and blatant cheater in that fight. What happened afterwards means nothing.

    Condor's Big Book of Excuses needs a new chapter or two.

    I generally don't watch Conor videos but it really does seem like he's coked up out of his mind when you take a look.

    Khabib has success striking ONLY because guys fear the takedown. His striking is amateurish. Just watch his ricdiculous haymakers he throws. He gets away with it because of the takedown threat. It works for him though so it’s all good.

    Everytime Conor opens his mouth these days, he sounds cringeworthy.
    Stop it man...Get back into the cage, start training hard, gain back respect...

    why did he let go the submission? at least some 10 more seconds would´ve been worth the suspension

    How come Kevin Lee who has a similar takedown threat is nowhere near as successful with the striking?

    Conor's frequently praised his opponents. They're just always fleeting moments of sincerity that get lost in all of the shenanigans.

    His grappling is so good that when compared to his striking people mistake his striking for poor.
