    Lol at everyone on Sherdog who was saying Thor could've destroyed Conor in that one training video

    Size doesn't mean shit when you have 0 training

    The Mountain is an average Sherdoggers coming from Reddit... Hasn't had time to get his 20 black belts yet...

    You are aware Gunnar is like 5 times better grappler than Conor is right?

    I can see Gunnar finding out ways to choke out Mountain easily. Not sure about Conor at all.

    LMFAO <Dany07>


    This dude who has never grappled in his life, was able to "rear naked" Dustin poirer(he even admits it)....Dustin couldn't even perform a side choke on shaw because of how big he is lol.....So yeah, pure size was enough to beat UFC LW championship material

    That just proves Poirier's BJJ is trash compared to a high level black belt like Gunny.

    You can keep fapping to your big muscly men though. No one's judging.

    Anyone who has actually trained knows the reality, keep on reading into some YT video with Dustin being nice

    Shaw is a much more chill dude. The Mountain is very arrogant anytime he goes against MMA fighters. Also he didn't RNC Dustin. Dustin tapped literally just from that weight being on him. The dude almost weights half a ton so it's understandable.

    One of the most gruesome and unexpected things I've seen in cinema.

    He didn't RNC but Dustin says "Im not protecting my neck here", aluding that Shaw can RNC if he knew....If shaw had any and I mean any knowledge, like a 1 demonstration of what an RNC is, he is choking out dustin.

    Dustin's also smaller and gave him the position but Nelson is obviously a higher level black belt (if Dustin even is one?) One of the few if only guys I've seen have any sort of success against Maia. Still got dominated but he had some slick reversals and survived some horrible positions.

    He also stated he was flowing not actually going hard. Hence why he sat there pointing that out. This was demonstrational not rolling.

    I guess there are different definitions of “tapped” as Cerrone pointed out

    It's a different ball game when there's punches involved

    He was trying to get out, he was trying and failed....simple as that....in that sequence he just tells him shaw to go hard..it was a straight up grappling spar.


    Now dustin did start in one of the worst positions....so it wasn't exactly fair...but the fact still remains, shaw out grappled him with zero training.
