    I doubted Conor throughout his entire career... up until he KO'd Aldo.

    Yeh, it took me a while.... and a lost bet.

    but, I'm convinced now - he is legit.

    How about the other 'doubters' ?

    I doubt that he is the greatest of all time and will keep laughing at the idiots who think he is.

    I actually think winning a decision against rda will convince the haters even more than a ko. Everyone is saying that if the fight goes into the later rounds rda will win, and that conor's only chance is to ko him. If he dominates the whole fight and showcases his tdd and fight control for 5 rounds i think it will prove more than a first round ko. Also, he could really shut everyone up by submitting rda, but that is unlikely to happen.

    I don't think that he is doubted, some people just do not praise him disingenuously.

    We will see how he does at 155 and then I hope sooner than later we can see if he can defend his title at 145.

    He is a champion and legit, but is a ways away from being included in the talks of the goats.

    There's a fine line between doubters & haters.

    He's legit yes,but that doesn't mean that you should pick him to win every single time.

    And it depends on what you mean by doubting.... I don't doubt he is one of the best fighters,but I wouldn't bet on a Conor victory against a couple of LW and most WWs.

    Is that doubting?

    Going the distance is more believable. Early KOs always opens the question of, "It was a freak punch."

    The truth is he didnt clear out the division. Frankie "the answer" Edgar was lurking and conor was ducking

    I guess i'm a doubter but i do want to see him succeed. If he wins a 2nd ir 3rd round ko he will definitely gain more fans but then his annoying fan base will probably make things worse. Sherdog is not a fun forum to visit anymore.

    Anybody who doubted Conor after the Porier fight is a stubborn fool who hates just for the sake of hating. KOing wont change these kids minds.

    So I can't think that Conor is legit but will lose to RDA? So anytime I pick against a fighter I'm doubting and hating on him?

    Doesn't have any real credibility as a champion for me until he defends his belts against the mandatory challengers at least 2 or 3 times.

    The instant champion fights are a joke.
