    Ha! Did Gunnar and Conor formally agree to go their separate ways? With a guy like Khabib on the horizon, having Nelson to train with is a huge asset.

    Cause Gunnar kept tapping McGregor midair before they even hit the mat and he didn't like it.

    I'd assume Gunnar doesn't want to stay in Conor's shadow his entire career.

    In the past couple of years, Conor made a multitude of public appearances with Gunnar and all of a sudden, I was unable to find anything linking them which made me wonder.

    I probably should have dug a little more before posting, as I found this...

    "Speaking with MMAjunkie, Kavanagh said Nelson (15-2-1 MMA, 6-2 UFC), who pulled out of the scheduled welterweight bout with Kim (21-3-1 MMA, 12-3 UFC) after suffering a freak injury at a UFC open workout ahead of the event, is already back in the gym"

    Taken from: With Gunnar Nelson back training, coach wants Dong Hyun Kim fight rescheduled for early 2017

    I guess that clears things up...

    Gunnar will never be a true contender at WW, too small for his style. He should drop. And if that means they don't train together and face each other then so be it.
