    Honestly don't think he even tried/trained hard for this fight. Didn't have that same insane motivated vibe he's had in previous fights. Looked bored as hell before/during the fight lmfao. Hands down, walked him down throwing basic shit cuz he knew Siver had nothing

    This could be a mistake though. We all know to remain great you have to respect all opponents and train hard for every one of them. Or you will get caught sleeping

    No denying he didn't Seem to put much effort into that beat down. i didnt think siver was going to win but i didnt think he'd get absolutely bullied like that.

    Your uneducated eyes fail to appreciate his ascension to perfection.

    He only makes it look easy.

    he absolutely tried.

    that relaxed style is a part of a plan. he doesnt fight that way simply to be a dick or to prove a point. it makes him impossible to time.

    the same was the case with anderson when people would say, "Oh he so disrespectful!" it was a strategy of his. make someone angry enough and they will swing on him instead of going for takedowns. allow him to counter.

    Looked the same as usual. Siver is more versatile than anyone he fought before, and was able to stop Conor from walking him down often.

    It was amazing how easy he made everything look, he wasn't fazed by anything Siver had and literally bullied him.

    agreed!!

    he was literally at 20%, to the point he got hit once or twice but u will NEVER see a more controlled performance than that. forget rankings, he literally toyed with him and never once looked in danger ever.

    incred confidence ad ability regardless of what happens with Aldo.

    Yes he did. Part of his game is to pretend he isn't trying. He most definitely was trying. He had some trouble with Siver's movement. He had some trouble with the low kicks.

    siver had nothing for him.

    conor has that "it" factor like Jones has.
