Times flies and it feels like yesterday hearing about this Irish guy with interesting record coming into the UFC. I couldn't foresee that he'd be the richest MMA fighter of all time really. Though I've followed Conor's career, which has been pretty interesting, I can't say I really have been a big fan of his. I thought he'd lose to Mendes and Aldo, in fights I thought that could've gone either way. I knew though he would wipe the floor with Eddie, lul look at all the noobs who flamed me then (https://forums.sherdog.com/threads/conor-will-destroy-alvarez.3332079/) Personally, I don't think Dustin is in Conor's league. Prime for prime, in my opinion, Dustin doesn't even come close to what Conor is. I think Conor at 50 percent is much superior to Dustin at any stage in his career. But it's not necessarily a knock against Dustin. He's a great fighter, just like Eddie is. But it's about match ups, and I feel like if God created the fighter to wipe the floor with someone like Eddie and Dustin, it's Conor. Yes, he did lost to Poirier, but to me, the loss had more to do with how much Conor declined than anything else, with all due respect to Dustin, and all the credit in the world to him for a upset win that rivals Serra over GSP, GG over Crocop in my book. I think Khabib said it right, that no man can have two primes in his career and Conor most likely ruined himself for all the bs that he did outside fighting, while completely overlooking Dustin going into that fight. Dustin ate Conor's shots flush and it didn't look like it even phased him much. Dustin looks bigger at lightweight, and cardio edge is always going to be on Poirier's side, and so will be striking volume. I'm not even sure Conor can put Poirier out at lightweight anymore. Poirier's defense improved tremendously, and it looks like he can take better shots with added weight. You may be thinking that I don't like Poirier, but in fact, Poirier has really everything I like in a fighter. Aggressive, tough, all heart, well rounded, can do it all. He is a world class indeed, but prime for prime, I just think he's a miles and miles beneath Conor in my opinion, it's all about match ups you see, I see Edgar being a tougher match up for Conor at FW than for Poirier for example, but that Conor likely is long dead and gone. At this point, Conor looks like he's just running his mouth online while he's still vacationing in Dubai with his family while taking photos in the gym with very green fighters and going for a run and hanging out with his kids, all the while promoting his booze business, whereas Dustin is already 110 percent working hard in camp. And it looks to me Conor declined to a point where half-ass training for trilogy will lead to bigger ass-whooping by Poirier. The question I have for the loyal fans of Conor on Sherdog is, if you have followed Conor intently throughout his career, like he has books and movies out and shit none of which interest me, do you think mentally, he still has desire to compete or is he just coming into cash in for one last time because he sure looks like he is giving no fuck about winning the trilogy against Dustin while acting like he cares online? So Conor fans, do you think Conor is coming in for one last paycheck and promoting his nonsense Fast program, or is he really coming to fight?
