    Hate to kick a man when hes done but Jesus Christ Donald

    - Loses to Jamie in his first title fight
    - had one of the GOAT LW fights with Benson for the interim title, came up short but no expectations there
    - gets choked in under 2 minutes in the rematch
    - fights Nate when hes on the cusp of a title shot and gets humbled and middle fingered, chokes badly
    - calls out Pettis, all kinds of trash talk and gets crumpled by a body kick in 2 minutes
    - works his way to a title shot with RDA and gets finished in a minute
    - goes on a tear @ WW undefeated, fights Masvidal at home in Denver and gets knocked out twice in the same fight

    then theres the hecent stretch

    This time he didn’t choke he dove, you train all that time(weeks/months) just to let a dude blitz you and shut you down In under a minute,sad

    You're the reason why we need a dislike button around here.

    That was terrible.

    Didn't even try for a take down, or kick him off during the GNP.

    I had Cowboy taking this, but damn Conor had it all figured out.

    Can't take anything away from Conor, but Donny needs to hang it up.
    He certainly will lose many supporters after tonight (including myself).

    You could about the need for a dislike button but my post wasn't stupid. You can't say the same.

    Tell me how a guy can train for weeks and months for a specific opponent just to get humiliated in less than a minute by that same opponent?,also consider all cerrone’s experience and what RDA did to him in a similar fashion, how is it he doesn’t learn from his mistakes?,why is no one training for a blitz?

    I think it goes without saying that Conor gave this guy his third consecutive stoppage loss because he booked a guy who was coming off... two consecutive stoppage losses.

    Its likely the pressure made Cowboy choke a little faster but RDA and Pettis both blew him out of the water like it was nothing. JG just murdered him in the first round literally one fight ago.

    Cowboy has generally been mismanaged (this includes being his own decision maker) and you can contrast that with Conor. He literally skipped over JG, who just wrecked Cowboy in the first round, to fight a guy coming off two consecutive losses, randomly at welterweight. That is the definition of good management - he hand picked a fight to get the result he wanted.

    So Aldo McGregor was fixed too right? Ditto Askren Masvidal seeing as that was done in what 6 seconds? You should stop while it looks like you might have made a one off dud post rather than keep going and make yourself look like an ignorant twat.

    donald has insanely low fight iq. great skills on the ground but continues to get starched on the feet. very frustrating. this was Dana's reward to him for his long ufc career. he had no chance.

    Yes it was fixed in regard to favoritism toward Mcgregor letting him disrespect Aldo in such a manner in that lead up with no consequences, grabbing his belt at the press conference, acting a fool, not to mention the size advantage he had over aldo aswell fighting at a smaller weight class to avoid 155 where he should have been all along, also letting him avoid Frankie, he was begging and pleading for herb dean to stand him up vs Mendez when he was getting exposed

    Most the time this is true but he has some quality wins against top guys (Eddie, Iaquinta, Benson, Edson)

    when theres expectations/big lights he specially folds

    And you start on the personal insults once you realize how ignorant you've made yourself look. Whatever you need to do to make yourself feel better after those laughable bad posts mate. Should I expect something else juvenile or will you exit with some shred of dignity left?
