    What would be the one piece of advice you'd give Conor to beat Dustin in the rubber match?

    I know everyone is going to say to check the leg kicks but I think I would tell Conor to throw more of his own kicks whether they be to the legs or the body.

    Keep your hands down.
    Put your chin straight up in the air.
    Walk forward.

    Get the handwraps from margaritos coach.

    If dustin plays it smart Connor has no chance. He has to avoid him for first round. Conors cardio is so shitty that he is basically done after that regarding a ko and Conor does not win on points. If the opponent fights like that Conor looses against every top15 lw.

    From Conors pov blitz Dustin and risk it all in round 1. Full on agression from start.

    Not that it’ll help him beat Poirier, he really needs to leave Irish Edmond and Jobber SBG, should’ve done it long ago, there’s still time...

    Aim for the chin.... Dustin will get ko'd if Conor just keeps punching him in the chin. Land left, then land right, than left again, than few more rights.

    Stop acting like you're only allowed to box and get back to moving in and out of range so you can utilize your kicks

    Underrated.

    But seriously my take is to work on checking kicks. Dustin's takedown seemed to tire them both out equally.

    Conor can do amazing things when he's hungry. He's just not hungry which is why he'll probably lose again. He goes in, gets another what... $20 mil? He doesn't care if he wins or loses if he's bringing home that kind of money.

    194 McGregor would have been a challenge even for Khabib (if they were at the same weight of course), and a nightmare for anyone else. He WAS a nightmare for everyone else but he didn't have a lot of cash. He got a taste of it and was propelled by an ambition that few will ever know.

    But that time is over. He's wearing watches that have yachts on them.
