    I think that it is a shame that we did not get a chance to see a full camp Mendes. He was a last minute replacement, giving him a very short amount of time to make his weight cut and to prepare for his opponent.

    Granted, his opponent was always going to be the superior striker, coming from a boxing background. So, regardless of how much preparation time Mendes had, he was going to be at a disadvantage on his feet. But being the more experienced ground fighter could have been the equalizer, and may have even won him the fight.

    I understand it is a business. His opponent was riding a win-streak, had a ton of support in the crowd, and had gained a lot of attention with his aggressive behavior on TUF. For those reasons, they were never going to postpone the matchup. But I think we will see a much better conditioned Mendes when he has a full camp.

    And at least he does not have all those stupid tattoos.

    Terrible thread.

    Just because you think it doesn't mean you need to make a thread about it.

    This is a good point. You are a great thinker. Might have missed the spoiler though.

    McGregor also had a very short time to prepare for his new opponent.

    mendes should retire. plain and simple. he is way past his prime.'

    A little early for a break, isn't it? He is 0-1, and a BJJ champ. I'm sure he can bounce back.

    With better cardio, Chad may have beaten Conor. Mendes gave up position multiple times to attempt to finish the fight, which is incredibly uncharacteristic of his fight style.

    Frankie had his way with Mendes and there really wasn't a whole lot he could've done to change it though.

    He is not even in Conor's weight class.

    I look at Cody and itch thinking how uncomfortable it must be to always have a turtle neck on.

    Mendes was doing a lot better on the feet than Conor was on the ground, that's for sure.
