    Seriously

    How is it possible that a two time division champion, a guy who smoked former GOAT candidate Aldo in turteen seconds, and a guy who brought MMA truly into the mainstream in the post-Brocktober era could be this direspected

    MMA fans are the worst
    but it's not just fans
    Journalists, other fighters, coaches etc seem to vastly overrated Khabib just to tear Conor down

    There are critiques to be made about Conor's record sure, but can Khabib beat someone who is a difficult style matchup please? Just once
    His best wins are RDA and Barboza, two guys notoriously bad against pressure fighters - how does this translate into success against a guy who beat someone on the level of Aldo

    Seriously, Jorge Aldo might be the greatest fighter of all time if he never lost to Conor, and against Conor MURKED HIM

    I don'teven know what to think, it's like people don't even watch the sport

    It will be justified after Khabib mauls him

    It's about time someone around here had the guts to make a Conor McGregor thread.

    Is that a misspelling or one of those Conor accent reference similar to the "tree times my size" quote ?

    A lot of people, myself included, don't like Cobor but we know that he is a very good fighter.
    Styles make fights though and if Khabib can take Conors punches and get him to the ground, it will be a nightmare for him.

    Find me a more underrated fighter then.
    The amount of hype that Conor got early has resulted in an over correction among fans - especially after losing to Nate Diaz.
    This isn't even an outlandish take, if you disagree just state why - or else why did you bother clicking the thread?

    No, sure, you're being sooooooooooooo serious about this ...

    "Jorge" Aldo indeed.

    I'm onto you, you little scamp.

    Man, a guy can't make spelling mistakes.
    This is a shame. Sorry you aren't willing to engage.

    Good one
    Also a surprisingly similar case, there was a huge over correction because of the hype he had going into his losing streak

    The problem is that MMA has one of the most uneducated fanbases in sports today. It's both funny and frustrating.
