    People talk about whether or not Conor is talking shit about the bad camp for the Khabib fight. Did he really have a bad foot? Was he really uncommitted to training? They're valid questions but I think there's a bigger one...

    Conor claims to be an "any time, any place" fighter. In the past he's said he would fight every week were the UFC to allow it, and just line up his opponents. Well if that's the case, then having a bad camp shouldn't be such an issue, should it?

    I feel like we're obsessing too much about this issue.

    Good camp, bad camp. He got his ass beat.

    Is this forum retarded? He says a bunch of bs to promote and stir shit. He will spin it anyway he can to line up another big fight. This is sports entertainment.

    We had Chael literally losing title fights and then went on to carry around a belt saying he was infact the champ. It's called promoting.

    He said he'd fight every week
    Didn't say he'd win or be at his best

    One doesn't cancel the other out

    "I'd fight every week and win every week"
    If he had said something like this you'd have a thread

    Camp was shit and foot was a balloon
    Issa known fact

    By the way, "anytime, anywhere" means that that he'll fight anyway.

    It doesn't mean he can't have a bad camp.

    That’s his own fault if he did all that. And there’s only one way to prove that the bad camp was an issue. Rematch with Khabib and do better

    Why are people shocked that he's making shit up? He says he's "humble in defeat" but he always has a ready made excuse.

    think he had winning in mind though. were a reporter to follow up his statements with the question of "and would you win every week?" he'd say yes.

    My point is that he wouldn't be having any camp at all for weekly fights. So how bad can a bad camp really be?

    Neither retarded nor shocked. Conor does believe a lot of the stuff he says. And I think this is one of those things. My OP explains how it's bullshit.

    Conrat had an amazing camp and was fully committed and motivated for the Nate rematch. Then he barely scraped by Nate in the rematch, literally running away from him gasping for oxygen, that's how he did against gatekeeper Nate at his very best and til this very day he claims he was fully motivated for that fight so.... Conrat fans are stuck between a rock and a hard place, Conrat didn't do his fans any favours.

    Bad camps can actually be worse than no camp.

    Anyway, it's all moot because Conor is a promoter and that's what he did.

    Well you try bleeding drinking all day and phoning lads from Dagestan down to the lobby for fights to prepare. Let’s see you try this mate.

    So you're certain he doesn't believe it himself?
