Usually Donald is the one who likes to be cordial with his opponent. He talked about the rumor that if he touches gloves with his opponent he performs better and told Conor to give him a hug before the fight. But Conor did the exact same thing to Donald. Was he reversing the situation by being ultra nice to Cowboy? This is mind games at its finest. Conor truly is a master. Dark Conor was the appropriate approach for his fight against Khabib, and smother him with love was the approach for Donald. Of course, he lost to Khabib but that's beside the point. Did Conor disarm Donald by smothering him with love and being nice to him in the lead up to the fight? Did he pull a Donald, on Donald? A Cerrone, on Cerrone? He said different situations call for different reactions, so was this his plan for Donald?
