    Just rewatched this fight. Chad gassed pretty badly by two minutes into the first. Yet despite exhaustion and an 8 inch reach disadvantage he hit Connor with a lot of shots.

    Chad was very stationary as well which I'd not typical. He had excellent lateral movement in all of his prior fights. I think he knew he wasn't in shape and was trying not to expend too much energy. Some people argue that he wasn't moving because of connors front kicks, but on the contrary lateral movements would have been a great defense to the leg kicks.

    The full camp mendes thing is no joke. Full camp mendes easily dispatches connor.

    What does that have to do with Shane Carwin?
    Did you just wake up from a coma, ts?

    You mean aldo? I agree that's his only good win. Chad was too much circumstance in his favor and he still barely pulled it off.

    "Skin cream Mendes" is apparently no joke either.

    Conor had better hope to god he never runs into Mendes again. He looked pretty close to a novice until Mendes gassed horribly.

    Such as? I think the max fight was good but max was not as good as he is today. Not saying I wouldn't favor aldo again but people act as is if each time max wins we're seeing how good Connor is, we're actually seeing connors improvement.

    Poirer was never a very good striker. Watch him charge past cub missing wildly. And siver...

    I find it interesting that in the Diaz fight Conor gassed that's why he lost but in the Mendes fight Mendes didn't gas it was those few front kicks that made him tired....bullshit

    Conor butchered him with those snap kicks to the mid-section.

    Team alpha male were going on about how Mendes always trains and is always ready to fight, but once he loses it's because he wasn't prepared.

    and TS...those shots Mendes "landed" were shown to have missed when a different camera angle was used. He barely touched him.

    Wtf. How can you gas in the first minute of a fight even if you had two weeks notice. Such bs.

    Rewatched it to, I believe conor getting in his head greatly effected his performance ( like Diaz did to conor or cerrone) Chad did better than I remembered him doing.

    Conor's kicks to the body and precise shots to the head slowly but surely worsened Chad's cardio as the seconds went by.

    Seriously, this is the type of of drivel that puts 'Conor p4p Goat' to shame.

    My favourite Conor fight. It was so intense and entertaining.

    And that hair style looks badass on Conor.

    Have you ever fought? It's very possible, add an adrenaline dump to short notice it's very possible and not really even that strange.

    I've heard fighters talk about being gassed after their first punch in their debut.

    Yes, I have. Not professionally, but I've sparred for at least 15+ minutes at a time before. And I'm the the amateur person around. So it's ridiculous to assume Chad just gassed after a minute of laying on Conor, even if he only had two weeks notice.
