    Where is Gunnar and why is he not helping Conor prepare for 202?

    Seems like Gunnar would be the obvious choice to invite to camp leading up to 202.

    -Bigger and heavier guy
    -Great ju-jitsu

    If Conor went to the ground with Gunnar, he would get toyed so easily that it would fuck up his confidence.

    Seriously though, good point.

    Crazy how he always says that he has a tight circle and doesn't like training with new people

    Gunnar would be ideal for prep, he'd mop the floor with Nate

    He probably goes easy on Conor but still subs him in less than 1 minute

    They where training not so long ago. Gunnar probably did not want to go to USA.

    I don't know the reason for that too.

    That's what you'd want in a training partner, someone better than you so you can get better. You lose battles in training so you dont have to lose in war

    Like Nate training with Andre Ward

    If I remember correctly, he said in an interview after his last fight, that he wanted to spend the summer with his 2y old son, then fight 1 more time later this year.

    Conor likes to hang around with ass kissing yes men like Artem and Ido Portal who will stroke his fragile ego. Gunnar doesn't strike me as that kind of guy.

    Yeah but Conor doesn't seem like the guy who likes to be pushed to his limit on a regular basis

    They've been training together for years, Gunnar won't bring anything new to Conor's prep?

    Have you watched the recent sparring video from Conor? He doesn't really want to lose in training, it would seem.

    Gunnar wanted to spend time with his new family in Iceland. He was training with Conor before Conor left for America.

    Gunny bless.

    Gunnar maybe the better fighter but Conor can definitely hang
