    Kenny Florian made a post recently about Conor having a terrible knee injury leading up to the Chad fight

    Which led me to watch Notorious just to get some context

    Pretty good documentary tbh.

    Dude didn't train any wrestling for his entire camp, had a blown ACL and fought the best wrestler In the division on 2 weeks notice..still fought, overcame adversity both during the camp and the fight and managed to get the KO. Was some lowkey warrior shit overall quite honestly.

    Much shit as Conor gets, dude Is a real fighter. I think there's a reason why he's so respected amongst so many fighters, celebrities and public figures.

    For me both as a martial artist and a fan of martial arts, It's very hard to not respect that kind of mentality In a fighter and human.

    hit it up on netflix. Whether you like or dislike him, It's a good watch

    Just giving my honest opinion on what I seen.

    Although I understand any opinion of Conor that paints him In a positive light makes one a nuthugger on these boards. Regardless of how factual It may be.

    It is what it is.

    It's a good documentary and OP gives his honest take on it.

    But some haters are just completely blinded by salt.

    Having no camp affects his cardio in the later rounds, it doesn't affect his lifelong wrestling ability in the first round, ability which Conor didn't/couldn't train against.

    He is a great fighter, but since winning his first title he became an insufferable diva.

    And just like he didn't care to defend his titles I don't have to care about his financial wits. I am a fan of MMA, not Shark Tank.

    It doesn’t matter how you get a lot of money. The challenge is holding onto it. That money is not going to sustain his family for generations.

    If he had a "blown ACL" why did he not have surgery afterwards but instead fight the biggest fight of his career (to that point) just five months later? You can't just naturally fix a "blown ACL" and resume like nothing happened.

    He says he is not a Fanboy.....So that would be inaccurate..

    So let me get this straight. You made a thread saying Khabib is over-rated. Now this one for Conor, and you still claim to be unbiased?
    How?
