    How is he going to be strategic especially during a fight when he's this on edge?

    Honestly he sounds and acts like a sensible human being here.

    Something's wrong

    A sensible human being doesn't get in a cage to fight in front of thousands of people.

    He sounded like someone who is trying to convince everyone and himself he is that.

    sounded like he literally admitted to cheating on Dee etc during the pre-khabib fight when he'd go out for 3 days at a time drinking

    He sounds like anybody that's going to be asked a tough question imo

    This is simply untrue. BJJ has taught me to become much, much more objective. About everything. One of the crucial lessons you learn from BJJ, at least if you're paying attention, is how fruitless it is to be in a rush to make a mistake. There are a plethora of ways to go down the wrong path in a grappling match, and few options that will lead to success.

    And I haven't experienced it to the same degree but striking gives a similar effect.

    he is fake as fuck, humble on camera to clean his image

    he is the maniac and douchebag that we saw on khabibs press conference, a shit neighborhood irish chav with money

    can only be happy because its an easy fight and easy cash

    You sound like someone who's never been punched in the face.

    But I feel like Conor's edge has been being able to stay calm under pressure that would crush others.

    None of this changes the fact that there is nothing sensible or normal about getting into a cage to fight a trained professional who is as likely as not to injure you before your night ends, and doing all of that for - relatively speaking - chump change.

    Maybe, time will tell

    Even though I am laying off the hate, I am still sceptical he can get back to his best

    I guess we will find out this year

    Lots of people are nervous without it affecting what they do. There are great actors known to have tremendous stage fright. Screaming and strutting around can be ways to hide nervousness. Like an actor taking on a role on stage. Just to make sure, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with being nervous. People are different.

    The only time he sounds inspired like his old self is when he talks about going for a boxing world championship.

    I think Conor's the type of guy who likes to dream big, to go after the stuff that no one thinks he can do but he believes he can do, to shock his doubters into submission and his fans into adulation. Clearly, that is boxing for him now, and not MMA where he's already done that, and especially not a MMA fight with Cerrone.

    I can sympathise with Conor's attitude.
    It's the attitude of a man who has fucked up too much and is trying to change mindset to be happier.
    Will it make him a better fighter? Probably not.
    But he needed this to feel better.

    Guy has obviously done psychotherapy, some spirituality, etc.
    Been there.
