    I don't understand why people think the reason he gassed was because of a short camp.

    For 1 he's an active fighter, cardio doesn't just get up and go after every fight, where you have to restart from scratch every time, Mendes was the #2 FW in the world, to say out side a fight camp his cardio goes from 25 minutes to 3 minutes is just plain Shertarded.

    2nd he had 17 days to train and cut weight, cardio is pretty much the only thing you can train at this point, and it doesn't take months to get back your prime cardio.

    The reason why Mendes was shit was because he didn't take Conor seriously, and a full camp wouldn't of changed that, Mendes had little respect for Conor and thought he was all talk, and didn't put the time in, and Conor showed thst if you take him lightly it's gonna be a short night.

    You can believe Connor is good while still believing Mendes wasn't anywhere near his best. And Mendes was clearly nowhere near his best. Camps aren't 17 days long for a reason.

    Usually fighters have an 8-9 intense camp which includes the weight cut at the end. Mendes had a 2 week camp that included cutting weight and insane media obligations. Meaning he trained for 1. Your just a stupid person for saying that camp dosent help improve cardio. Being in shape and "fighting shape" is a monumental difference.

    He's been with TAM for ages. It's a bit late to start blaming short camps.

    It's Mini Mendes - all his camps are short camps.

    i dont have a problem with connor fans ignoring the short camp and not using it as a excuse. Chad showed up and fought so no excuses. but i do have a problem with the connor fans who act like connor just blew through chad and act like chad didnt land any strikes and was just laying in gaurd. Chad did plenty to knock the cockiness out of connor however briefly.

    You are delusional if you seriously think Mendes thought Conor was going to be an easy fight.

    Please gimme a break, cardio doesn't take 9 weeks to work on, what media obligations did Mendes do?? Conor was the one with the blown out knee, and had one of the craziest media schedule over any past fighters, Mendes didnt do talk shows, press conferences, he had a phone call, that's it

    Who said anything about Conor blowing through Mendes?? Conor did finish inside 2, and to blame it Mendes cardio is ridiculous, he's the #2 FW and had 3 weeks to prep his cardio, he should've been able to go 2 rounds no problem, he didn't and it's because he didn't take it seriously.

    My point is, Mendes either over estimated himself or under estimated Conor, and a full fight camp wouldn't of changed that
