Any student of body language (or, for that matter, even Ray Charles) can see Conor's complete and total insecurity in his interviews. Conor puffs himself up, he sticks his chin out, but it is in painfully-obvious feigned defiance. Beneath Conor's superficial exterior of "confidence" lies a completely insecure, destroyed, OWNED, butt-hurt, and completely-vulnerable little boy. Conor has tried to make his body and muscles appear bigger, he's grown his beard bigger, and he's attempting the "humble act" now ... to take away from his previous big, fokking mouth ... but at the end of the day we all know he is just another loudmouth ... whose bravado wrote too many checks that his punk ass couldn't cash. The very fact Conor's first challenge in his "comeback" was the multi-losing midget, Frankie Edgar ... which even Dana rejected due to the farcical nature of the proposal ... tells anyone with a brain Conor is tentative and insecure. The very fact Conor has selected the aged, apathetic "can't win the big ones" ... 4-6 of his last 10 ... Cowboy reaffirms this impression. It really doesn't matter if Conor beats Cowboy. The rankings will not change. If Conor loses to Cowboy, his stock will be damaged forever. If Conor beats Cowboy, his stock will not go up a single notch. Conor needs to face Justin Gaethje, Dustin Poirier (for the rematch), Tony Ferguson, or some other real contender, to qualify for Khabib. Facing an old, tired, unmotivated, smiley-faced, proven loser (for the big ones) Cowboy Cerrone is an absolutely meaningless effort. If he loses to Cowboy, Conor can kiss his career goodbye.
