Conor is doing this “nice guy” act right now, which I could care less whether he’s nice or not. However I did remember one thing: NEVER be nice to Cerrone during fight week or in the fight. Cerrone has some of the worst pre-fight anxiety of any fighter in the UFC. This is the main reason he is a slow starter, he has to get comfortable and relaxed in there. A relaxed Cerrone is VERY hard to beat. I could show you 10 examples of times he got comfortable in the octagon and literally finished his opponent not far afterwards, but I’ll just show you this one: Matt Brown was doing well against Cerrone by bullying him and even stunning him with a punch, having a close fight through the 2nd round. As soon as the 3rd round started, Cerrone and Matt hug and start playing around like it’s a party. Cerrone gets relaxed, sees all of his openings and turns into a different fighter.
