    A lot of Sherdoggers jumped on the bandwagon that Conor had cardio problems.

    So are my Sherbros willing to admit that Conor's cardio was incredible vs Cerrone. Conor didn't gas once and stepped on the gas from the first second to the last.

    Tldr; Conor's got 99 problems but cardio ain't 1.

    MayhemMonkey Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?

    To be honest, it looked incredible

    He put the pace on Cerrone and didn't let up for the entire fight

    Yes, that's actually the only thing suspicious about this fight. He never slowed down, even for a second. Amazing.

    I have been a doubter in the past, but I am willing to admit he has proven me wrong.
    He really channeled his inner-Nate or inner-Ferg last weekend.
    I was shocked at the pact he kept up the entire fight - from the opening bell to the finish.
    I wonder if he has started doing road work?

    Yes that was clearly some next level cardio. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Conor in the Tour de France sometime soon

    I was concerned mid way through the 3rd round when Cerrone started to get Conor’s timing, but Kudos To Conrad for getting his second win and going all out while getting the fourth round finish....

    Great fight to use as a metric for where his cardio is at these days, Kabibs better be worried

    Conor is on EPO, that's the only logical explanation.

    I can only assume thats his 5 round pace because he was in a 5 round fight

    He was tired in the third, as usual.

    I don't think I have ever seen a greater display of guts and stamina

    Conor showed he can fight through adversity haha

    Conor blew his load straight away, which is why khabib took him down quickly to get that 'pop' out of him quickly.
    Cerrone looked like a deer staring at headlights as soon as conor went in for the kill. Conor can defintly take out Justin though, punches or kicks.. Justin's defense is very sus..

    He has no issues cheating inside the cage when everyone is looking, what makes anyone think he wouldn’t cheat outside of it when no one is looking.

    To be honest, I didn't see it as on par with Colby's 'porn star cardio', so I'd prefer if Conor did a bit more work in the bedroom.

    I'll admit, I was a critic of conor's cardio before.

    But after seeing him be the 8th fighter to finish Cowboy, and not have to worry about cardio at all...

    ...I'm convinced conor has great cardio!!

    I can't imagine any scenario past or present where conor would ever bad cardio!

    Cardio was amazing. Equally impressive was how he avoided all of cowboys strikes.
