    I guess the hate runs that deep around here. Gaethje did the exact same thing to Cowboy and no one thought it was suspicious. Cerrone is just at that point in his career. A lot of people knew Conor was going to beat Cowboy so they started the "fixed" narrative prior to the fight.

    Another thing, Conor's only chance at redemption was to steamroll Cerrone. Imagine if he had win a 5 rounder, even as 50-45, and he would have been ridiculed for not stopping cowboy. Even if it took 2 rounds to stop him it would have been a big criticism against him. He did what he had to do and stopped cowboy within a minute. I guess that makes people mad, I wanted Cerrone to KO him viciously but it is what it is.

    Masvidal vs Conor, let's go.

    TS has good point and just shows how Conor haters can be equally or more delusional than conor’s nut huggers.

    sad!

    I'd rather see Conor vs Colby. Watching Colby get torn apart in verbally and physically would be amazing

    I was saying this to the guys at the casino. At the end of the day Conor had to blow through Cowboy to at least make it a little bit impressive. He can’t take damage, let it get out of the first because Justin did it already.

    Should have fought Justin though then we wouldn’t be in this situation.

    People want to claim Cerrone is washed, fine (it's mostly true). They want to say he was always an easy match up for Conor, fine (there is an argument to be made there). But sad, pathetic Conor haters resorting to accusing Cerrone of taking a dive need to go fuck themselves and stop pretending they're the 'real fans of this sport'.

    yeah this

    People actually think ufc would risk losing everything by fixing fight when it was a cherry picked match up that Conor was tailor made to win

    Yeah and it is true. The only way Conor could have actually won this fight was to do what he did. It was a very clutch performance given the opponent. Winning any other way would have been a loss for him. No one is denying that he should have fought Gaethje over Cowboy. I think Conor and everyone around him wanted to get a W at all costs while still fighting a credible opponent. I just dont think Conor is too worried about Gaethje considering he stopped both guys who beat Gaethje.

    Shocking number of people become emotionally involved with fighters and cannot be objective. Cowboy does not suck, nor does Conor. It was a favorable match-up for Conor, especially when Cowboy stated that he wants to keep the fight standing. Conor vs. Masvidal will be closer than most think and Conor might have a slight edge.

    Can Conor compete with Usman and Colby, probably not, he does not have the strength to keep these guys off of him and will get mauled on the ground.

    Can Coner beat Khabibi in a re-match, probably not, same reason as above.

    I assume the argument has more to do with financial motivation than fighter performance.

    Do you understand now; the words came from you my friend, because deep down inside your sub-concious-ness, you believe this too...

    It was a fix remember. (Connor's only chance! for redemption.) Your words not mines. You don't need to thank me for helping you find your inner self. I'm just glad we agree :)

    Not fixed in my opinion...... however Cerrone seemed way too "fine" and "cool" with getting absoutley starched with total ease.. it didn't sit well with me. The whole thing was weird. He talked and talked and talked on how he was gonna do this and that, but he just wilted and wanted out after a few shots and didn't want to fight back.

    The fight was not fixed like many claim, I believe it was legit.. But I feel like you have already lost when you are so fine and cool with losing.

    Preemptively shitting on Conor's win with fight fixing conspiracies is one of the weakest things I've even seen on Sherdog
    Shookness was through the roof

    "Donald should win if the fix isn't in"
    <{1-1}>
