    All hate and bs aside how good do you think Conor could be if he dedicated his life 100% to mma? If he put aside all the distractions, stopped drinking that swill, moved to Jackson Wink or AKA or wherever you think is ideal for him and worked 24-7 towards being the best version of himself possible, what is his maximum potential? Do you ever see him beating Tony or Khabib?

    If he dedicated full time, got his cardio sorted and had a bit more heart??

    He would definitely have a chance of beating anybody and would be awesome!

    He'd be fooking great. Look where he got just by being 5% dedicated. GOAT confirmed.

    Cardio is a big one with Conor. He just doesn’t have the gas.

    Conor is not one of the greats. He's a fighter who had a good run. That's all. Greats defend titles against legit contenders. Greats clean out a division. Conor won a few fights and then ran away. And when he couldn't run anymore he got smashed.

    He physically wouldn't have been able to stay at Featherweight. He was a skeleton at weigh ins.

    It wouldn’t make a difference.

    He would never be good enough to beat khabib.

    Yet he's the only fighter (maybe other than Ronda) that the person in the street has heard of, he's sure great at something.

    connor has already reached his goals and lost the hunger

    hunger is necessary for dedicating 100% to mma

    is normal

    I think the IV ban is why he couldn't stay at Featherweight. He was cutting a ridiculous amount of weight for his size and repleneshing fluids with IVs like everyone back then and then USADA banned it.
