    While the haters were gathering round in frenetic circle jerk & foaming at their mouths at the inevitable derailing of the hype train by Chad Mendes, a former Governor, champion and Oscar nominee could tell there was something special going on, that we had a GOAT in the making. I remember the ridicule Schwarzenegger's lavish praise was met with at the time but isn't funny now to see how a world champion athlete could see in Conor what those too bitter to open their eyes could? Ahnold bless...

    I knew Conor would become GOAT after the destruction of Marcus Brimage

    I'm confused, is it Arnold you wish to rim or Conor?

    Maybe the three of you could get a human centipede going?

    A place where apparently it's sensibly fashionable to rock the nom de chien Gangsters_Paradise while also sporting a Pennywise AV.

    Strangely, I did too.....quite a few people did if you go back and read some of those early threads but 98% thought he would get crush like Tom Egan. No one gave him a chance around here except the people that actually knew shit about technique and fighting wasn't a soap opera for men "Did u hear what Chael said to Wand last night?,,,,what a jerk!". His hands, angles, IQ, ability to make adjustments and ferociousness as just something we haven't seen in MMA before. It was kinda like when I first saw Bones wrestling vs Bonnar and he just absolutely rag dolled the shit out of a good guy, showed us something new that was head and shoulders above what we had seen before (wtf happened to that Jones BTW?). Only dif is, Conor had charisma coming out of his bung hole, as revealed in the iconic: "Hey Dana...50 G's baby!".

    Conor's debut was nearly as good as Anderson Silva's. Both were things of beauty that let everyone know they were contenders.

    I knew Conor would be champ someday when I saw how easily he knocked out Eddie Alvarez. Sure enough, I was right.

    Yeah, Arnold's been backing him for a long time for sure. I remember him actually going out to Conor's temp house before the Mendez fight. Waz on one of those pre-fight shows I think.

    Prime Arnold taps Cloner with a handshake.

    Just in case you knob gobblers didn't know already.

    Cloner would be so impressed he'd vanish 6 months and come back with an Austrian accent.
