    Conor and Kavanaugh have continuously stated that fatigue was the determining factor in why Conor lost the fight vs Diaz.

    I firmly believe that Conor was rocked and tried the takedown attempt in hopes that he could clear the cobwebs if he took him down.

    My question to anyone who has actually been legitimately "rocked", is a stamina dump a symptom of being rocked? Did Conor really lose all his stamina due to getting rocked, or was my first assumption most likely the right one?

    I think he was more hurt than tired.

    He was hurt, not necessarily tired. I'm sure he was tired as well, but not gassed. He was putting the pressure on Nate in the second round right before Nate nailed him with the 1-2 that changed everything. He was pressing the action, throwing combos, and they didn't look to be the kind of punches you see from someone who's gassed(these looked like setup shots, not arm punches).

    If we are being real, and not using McVision it was both.

    What i find kind of weird is that Conor and his camp continue to talk about how the loss was due to stamina. Honestly, I don't see the big deal if Conor just admitted that he got stunned and went for a bad takedown.

    That whole fight changed after Diaz cracked him a couple of times.

    I'd say both the one thing you can say is he gave up and looked for a way out of the fight the second things went south kind of showed his true colors. I wish diaz would've beat on him some more instead of letting him take the easy way out.

    he fell victim to a heavy duty beating that left him both tired and rocked.

    the fight video is online. A few seconds before Nate landed the game changing 1-2, Conor threw a 5 shot combo, so where was his fatigue then? Seems like a lot of ignorant fans look at the last minute of that fight and think they saw Conor fatigue. The last minute of the fight was the finish. Once Nate landed the 1-2, it was on it's way to being over. Conor fought through it pretty well, but Nate put him against the fence and kneed him in the body (more fatigue) then just started teeing off on him. The finish started at that 1-2 at 2:23, and was complete when Conor went for the TD. Anything after that was a formality.

    This is just the last exchange before he gets nailed by the 1-2. Does this look like a guy who's gassed out to you?
