Still not impressed with Conor. Anyone else think he still has a lot to prove?

    Conors stand up is awesome. But we have yet to see him be tested by a proper wrestler.

    I think it's pretty common knowledge that Conors weakness is his grappling. He can't really be considered as a true champion until he faces a true grappler.

    He has faced good wrestlers but when has he ever been forced into a wrestling match? This is something We need to see before he can be taken seriously as a top 10 guy

    Using reverse psychology in an attempt to shift public opinion because you're too afraid to express your own openly = super coward

    I think his grappling is better than people give him credit for, it's not on the elite level of a Nate Diaz, but he escaped Mendes's guillotine beautifully. He's good enough to defend himself on the ground and get up, which is basically all he needs because he's so good on the feet.
