    He won't make because he is soft and fronts about being tough. I'm deep in the bjj community and have met and seen him go through the ranks of bjj.

    He needs to learn wrestling in order to use his BJJ in the cage.

    Right now any Diaz Bro would whoop him, but a few years down the line he'd cut through them.

    He's only 23 I believe, so he has a lot of time to learn it. If he's training at SBG Ireland, then he'll be training with Makwan Amirkhani, who will get him some decent experience in the area.

    I just started following it, and he comes off a huge douche. Do you know why he won't he rematch Garry or match Gordon?

    Skills don't always translate well. He might be good at grappling, but what about his wrestling? What about his ability to take a punch and throw one? Conor is far from the best MMA striker, but his style has gotten him far.

    Is he gonna teach Dannis ko power from left hand counters? When that doesn't work, we've seen him get sauced up by Diaz on the feet.

    Pathetic thread. Typical Conor shitposting neophyte fanboi bullshit-- hate what Conor hates, like what Conor likes, say what Conor says, blindly support anyone remotely related to Conor, and blindly hate anyone who disagrees with Conor.

    A few years? We're talking about two guys who have a lifetime of high level striking and MMA experience. Dillon could possibly win on the ground but he wouldn't stand a chance on the feet.

    Great background to start his MMA training off of.

    Why are we talking so much about him? I didn't see any info about him MMAing on Google other than that he helped Conor train for Nate 2.

    Is it just because he's training with Conor & talking about moving into MMA or something?

    Why do you dorks always insist because you train with someone that their skills automatically transfer to you? Shouldn't this be obvious to you by now that it's not the case, just look at the Diaz bros wrestling and Shields' striking despite the fact that they've trained together for over a decade.

    He's become quite vocal as of late, and if you follow his Instagram then he's adopting the McGregor look too. I think he also jokingly called out Jon Jones for a grappling match on Twitter.
