    conor 4 years ago, at FW in camp said he walks around 170 lbs. At the time he was fighting at FW and was honest and didn't try to find excuses to his losses.

    Now he is older, much much muscular and with more fat, but he is barely 160 lbs !

    First pic is a guy killing himself to make 145.

    Second picture is someone cutting 5-10 pounds to make 170.

    Athletes add muscle and get bigger. Age also plays a factor. I dont think he cut for diaz 1. But he bulked up n cut down for diaz. Just like he bulked up n cut down for cerrone.

    Some of you seriously need to head to the gym for once in your lives. Max Holloway is not 178 lbs, so saying that "because Max Holloway, a featerweight, is 178 lbs, it must mean that Conor - a lightweight - is even heavier" is a tremendously poor excuse for an argument. Colby Covington - a welterweight - has admitted to weigh 183 fight night and he is much bigger than Max Holloway. I never understood how someone could possibly see a stick like Holloway as possibly heavy in any way, shape, or form. Like I said, y'all need to have a proper perception of weight - you are either very underweight or very overweight.

    LOL. He had every reason to cut weight. Didn't even need to fake it cause he needed to cut weight. Overcutting 2 pounds is very common when its not a big cut. You new to mma?

    I don't get what is difficult to understand, Conor walks around in day to day life in the 170's, but when he's in camp training for a fight and burning thousands of calories a day he falls well into the 160's which gives him a relatively easy cut to 155, when he fights at 170 he actually has to over eat to stop himself from losing to much weight.

    Nate is skinny and has close to no muscles. You're falling for angles and PR horseshit. But have at it, yours is not my life.

    Lol, but no...a guy like that would have the easiest camp making 145...and we all know how he looks making 145...His own coach said it, Conor is well above 170lbs and he does cut to make 170, is he 190lbs in shape? Absolutely not, but he cuts to make 170lbs.

    WTF you talking about falling for angles?

    We've watched them fight and interact for years, there's 20lbs minimum between both men in walk around weight, it's clear as fucking day.

    I don't think you know what cut means...

    Conor in fight shape with the excess fat burned off is in the 160's, cutting weight is when you extract the water from your body, and there's no way Conor needs to do that for 170.

    Here's Conor a couple of days ago with UFC Bantamweight Cole Smith

    Conor's haters crack me up, they spend half the year calling him a manlet and the rest of the time arguing that he's basically the same size as a 6'1 WW Nate Diaz.

    Tell that to his coach...his own words regarding being over 170lbs, and his plans to leave FW because of the hard cut (Rogan podcast) but the UFC offered FW.

    I was actually surprised on how that BW looked next to Conor (before you mentioned it), but thats only a part of the story, why? Is he in fight shape or walkaround weight? The guy was probably taller than Conor but that doesnt mean much if he has a very slim frame, also younger fighters can cut weight a bit easier, him looking "bigger" than Conor doesnt do much, as probably would be taller than DC, who fights at HW.

    the fact is if you're cutting a substantial amount of weight, you're really not going to cut two extra pounds for kicks. every pound hurts. maybe he cut 5 lbs max.

    Height divisions in mma, all new tonight at six.



    P.S. Con isn't a manlet. He cut tons of weight to win 3 top 10 fights against smaller opponents.

    Exactly, I’m 5’10, 165 not as lean as Conor and I have a 1000 pound total and bench 275. If he was actually 5’9, 175+ that lean he would have way more muscle than me, which he does not.

    He’s as 14 inch arms, 30 inch waist lean as it gets. 160s.
