    I think Conor is reaching a new level in his game. He looked like an absolute killer at 170 lbs. And yeah, Cowboy isn't shot imo. What say you?

    He looked good against a guy who is 4:6
    not to mention 35% of sherdog believe took a dive.

    Conor is good and Cowboy is on the tail end of his career.

    They met and Conor have him extra CTE.

    Cerrone been on a decline for the past few years. I don't think Conor that good either. This was a easy fight for Conor since it was stand up battle. Give him a wrestler and Conor will lose badly. Give him Kevin Lee next.

    Cerrone is good, but he's lost EVERY big fight, #1 contender, good chance given.... Always somewhere top 10ish, bit never able to get past the hardest fights.

    Also, the records he holds (IMO) are worthy of legend status anyways.... that and fighting more than ANYONE ELSE.... I mean, he's good, he's prolific, he holds UFC records that won't get passed by for a decent amount of time...

    Respect to both -- but people shitting on Cowboy are not MMA fans to me ;)

    I love Cowboy. Probably one of my 10 favorite fighters, or close to it....but yeah, he obviously gets a bit nerve-y in the early parts of big fights. I'm not taking anything away from Conor, who's kind of the exact opposite in terms of performing under pressure.

    It really sucks because I don't think there's anything about his skills-set that leaves an MMA fan wanting. Guy should have been a champion.

    Cowboy looks like greatest fighter in the world when he wins, and like a can when he losses, in most cases.

    Nihil novi...

    A 37 year old fighter getting TKOed in 3 straight fights doesn't exactly scream "not washed".

    Cerrone is mediocre and his style is tailor made for McGregor.

    Neither. Conor isn't a god and Cowboy isn't a bum. Just a favorable matchup and Cowboy has been declining and has no durability anymore.

    ^This

    Seeing these idiots shitting on him because they -hate- Conor is stupid. Cowboy is literally everything (outside of champion) that an MMA fan wants:

    -Never a boring fight (pretty much finishing or being finished)
    -Highly skilled at all disciplines
    -Never disrespected anyone in/around a fight
    -Active as absolute fuck
