nah its not only business. he's talking shit. its business... but lets not act like he wasn't trying to get in Khabibs head also. He did it with Aldo, Alvarez, and it worked out nicely for Conor, both business wise and fight wise. That's why its a bitch move to say "it's only business"... because it isn't. Conor's lying to himself and to Khabib. The only reason he said that was because he new he was done. He wanted Khabib to take it easy on him and not humiliate him by saying "its only business". Khabib could've continued to smash Conor and give him severe brain damage if he wanted too. He could have potentially made Conor tap to strikes, causing even greater humiliation. What Khabib could have done was.... mount....smash smash smash... pause (to not let Herb stop the fight).... smash smash smash... pause... repeat untill last minute of the fight where he can really lay on the beating for a TKO finish. Khabib let him off easy. Conor was scared of the beating that he could have gotten because he new he was done. he gave up his back, and gave up his neck. Conor is thankful to Khabib for submitting him. If you dont understand this, then you are simply not able to think other then your own perspective. Put yourself in Conors shoes. You're dead tired. in the press conference, Your opponent has mentioned that he will not submit you, but continue to smash your face in (causing you to lose brain cell after brain cell) when you get tired. When you're in the fight, and you're tired, and you start to realize whats about to happen.... you best believe you know whats going to happen. so you know what you do? you beg for mercy. im sorry, its only business.... (EVEN THOUGH IT AINT) please dont smash my face in. But there is a lesson to learn from all this. When you come across people like Conor, that's when you really begin to learn about how to deal with a negative mind. Dustin realized this after the fight. He even tweeted it out saying that Conor taught him a lot about himself. He began realizing truth and now he's something like 8-1 since. Love thy enemy. because they teach you a lot. not directly, but indirectly. these situations cause you to look within for solutions. This is the path to truth. your enemy will begin your journey into inner strength. if it werent for your enemy, you wouldn't be able to create the strong mindset that you have.
