    Defensively the couple times he went down he did a great job getting back up quickly. His offense was very impressive. Defense wise he took no damage and anything that landed was at the end of the strike which diminished the power in the strikes.

    He looked pretty impressive, then again he was fighting Siver.

    He might as well have been wearing steel-toed boots in there.

    He was delightfully lurid. Never once let grass grow under his feet.

    I wasn't worthy of seeing that.

    Siver isnt a world beater, but he is strong, powerful, with great cardio...Connor destroyed him and took no damage....Great performance.

    Wasn't impressed by his offense or defense. I had predicted a 2nd rd. KO for Conor.

    He certainly throttled the guy tailor-made for him to show off his skills...he did it less efficiently than I'd expected him to, however. To be totally fair to Conor though, some/most of that is probably due to him playing it up, making a show out of it.

    The kid is clearly a great fighter, but nothing I've seen has blown me away, yet.

    Anyone that says they were/are not impressed by that performance is operating under some form of bias. Conor looked phenomenal.

    He did exactly what he needed to do. I was glad he didn't just blast Siver out in two minutes, it gave him time to showcase some of his skills. Awesome performance, but no surprises.

    He got taken down twice by D-1 Siver. I don't think he could hang with any of the wrestlers in the division. His striking is pretty good though. I think Aldo runs through him though

    I was impressed by how relaxed he is in there more than any of his skill.

    Seriously though, I thought he looked excellent! Defensively he could have looked better but I just think that was because he felt no threat from Siver and knew he couldn't be hurt, so be went for some silly techniques that left him open. I don't think we would see that against Aldo

    aldo will expose him since white wont give him a real test. watch and see how hard he was already breathing at the end of the first. not impressed at all.

    Conrad was great. Can't wait to see the aldo fight. Personally i would prefer a Conrad vs Edgar

    considering all the hype around him and this fight, he delivered beyond my expectations. His straight left is something else.
