    If the weight cut for him is as so bad and hard (as implied in the Tony Robbins interview) why won’t he move to WW? He matches up pretty well there and (unpopular opinion) IMO he has a better chance to win the belt there then @LW.

    Do you think he has a chance to become a three division world champion?

    Pretty sure he walks around at like 172 or something, maybe he weighs 180 at the most; imagine him against Usman, or Till.. he would look tiny.

    If his pimp hand is strong... could have the 165 division made for him... But then would have the killers from 155 and 170 to deal with... Don't see him being champ again...

    His reasoning for the rough weight cut was an injury. When he's not injured, he makes the weight without issue

    Pretty simple

    didn't you listen? He broke his foot and could only do half of his usual work load, so getting off the weight was harder.

    Kumaru Usman would prison rape Conor. Not sure where you get the idea that Conor matches up better with the elite at 170 than at 55. Dude can barely hang with a bloated Nate Diaz at 170.

    He's too small. He should focus on one weightclass and regain his title. Then stick to it and try to get some consecutive title defenses going.

    Conor's ideal weight is about 162 lbs

    a 165 class is about as close to perfect as he can hope for

    Conor cant compete at LW. He would get slaughtered at WW.

    People bitching about a guy not moving up to WW that was a former FW that never missed weight.

    Conor literally tried to put on weight for the Diaz fight and came in at 168 fully bloated.

    Name one fighter he beats at WW?

    Usman? Askren? Woodley? Lawler? Thompson? Masvidal? Convington?

    No to all the above 9/10

    Maybe Pettis on a bad day, but even Anthony is more skilled overall.

    Conor naturally weighs 168 on a full stomach and is 5’8.

    He is a small man, he is built for the lighter weights, 170 fighters would simply obliterate him. His best chance is to go back to 145, 155 has Khabib Tony and Barboza waiting for him.

    Add to the fact he’s off his face on drugs and being accused of rape and making excuses for a loss with a “broken foot” and what you are left with is a very broken little man.
