    How do all these fighters keep getting cleared if they are so 'injured' all the time before fights? I think they aren't and just bring that crap up to make their victories seem that much more impressive. Gullible fans that live vicariously through fighters eat that trash up.

    So you're calling DJ and Conor's team liars?

    When you're here, I ask questions, YOU answer them
    Finally something palatable coming from DJ.

    Didn't think I'd ever say it but I feel like taking him to the local fair and winning a stuffed koala for him.

    If there is no medical report, or the fighter cleared his pre-fight physical i'm calling BS, on any supposed injuries. People just want excuses to fall back on should they lose, and want to seem like more hardcore 'warriors' when they win. I'm not just saying that about Conor. I'm saying that about all fighters, that claim to have won fights, despite their horrible injuries that somehow slipped past the doctor.

    Hahahaha. :)

    I remember that show.

    Fair point, but from most accounts Conor was injured for the majority of his camp. You can even tell with the training footage and such that was out there.

    He has a point. How can they be cleared if it's a serious injury ?

    Actually the injury happened at the world tour, he blew his MCL rolling with Rory, his knee was probably fine enough to pass the physical and to compete and to pretty much do anything he wanted.

    That being said, coming from experience with ligament injuries, you avoid stressing the joint, with his MCL it would greatly affect his TDD since he would have to avoid any balancing and weight support on that knee as much as possible, his guard and submissions from bottom would also be hard with risking of further injury.


    And FYI reports of his bad knee were floating around well before the fight and opponent change

    Just the wrong type of character though

    I am just asking this cause I don't know. Not being a smart ass.

    Don't they touch your body while examining ?

    Is it a verbal examination ?

    If I had like an internal injury or whatever, I am sure they would ask. But the knee is right there in the open. How do they not check it ?

    Again, just asking, not telling.

    Nope.

    Hozay is getting KTFO and Conor will bring home the belt and a huge paycheck for Christmas.

    Conor bless.

    With ligaments, there fine, then not fine, there's no in between, having blown his MCL months earlier, means it's really easy to blow out again.

    But it wouldn't blow out in a physical

    This really doesn't mean anything.

    KO/TKO, it's whatever, Aldo is getting put down like a sick cow.

    Oh, and at least McGregor can actually finish a fight, unlike Aldo who can't finish anybody unless their striking is awful (Mendes' striking was pretty crappy back in those days) and they run into his knee, or his opponent busts their own shoulder. :icon_lol:

    McGregor via KO/TKO, 3 rounds max.

    Conor bless.
