Maybe we can get Conor to fight Cowboy again? Make it at 155 so Conor can even up that 1-2 record? Conor is washed. The most fight Conor showed was when the reporter told him after the fight what Khabib had said. Conor is simply collecting a check at this point. Guy gassed out in 1 round. We saw the same thing happen to Ronda. Not sure why we're all surprised. Like Khabib pointed out, Conor stopped working on his craft. Doesnt seem like winning is his #1 priority anymore.

Conor has had the same camp his entire career dafuq are they talking about. Also “to lose the way he’s been losing” he won his last fight before Dustin. Stephen A needs to stop covering MMA

S.A. Smith's takes are usually bad, but he has some good points in this one. He's right about Conor not deserving a title shot and some of his other takes represent the opinions of casual fans. I don't think Dustin is the pure striker that most people think he is. He's a balanced MMA fighter with striking as his base. His innovative take on the philly shell along with being able to mix in kicks and wrestling won him the fight.

This commentary about Stephen A. apparently not knowing what he’s talking about has to end. He said we didn’t learn anything about Conor after Cerrone, he was clearly right. He said that Cowboy didn’t wanna be there and the lights were too bright and then Cowboy came out and confirmed it. He was 100% right about Poirier-Conor fight too.

The truth is McGregor did not look in fighting shape and if your not getting it done in the gym your not going to get it done in a the fight. These guys are elite and and Dustin is in his prime Conner will be back but hes got to get into the best shape of his life to take Dustin out in the trilogy. Poirer has been into some wars of late and it looked like it he had the eye of a killer in there.

No. It had nothing to do with either of those things. It had everything to do with poirier and his gameplan. Conor has fought 1 southpaw in the ufc other then dustin, nate diaz who throws kicks to distract people not to hurt. Conors lead leg has never been hit like that before, yoy take away his lead leg, you take away his mobility, you simplify his attack. Dustin and his game plan was why he got a tko over conor.

Grappling is how you beat McGregor? He clearly dont watch, McGregor is great with takedowns. Watch Mendes. Watch Khabib, yeah he got him down but look what khabib did to everyone else compared. He did amazing with poirier taking him down. Thats just the rumor, so Stephen goes with it. He listens to others and then repeats when it comes to MMA.

imo I believe it's time for him to move on try something different like boxing, I believe with the RIGHT boxing coach Conor can make that change over, I believe someone like Freddie Roach or Bomack can make Conor HUGE in the game, he just needs to be in a boxing condition as far as UFC go's Conor has NOTHING else to prove, I'll agree with Max the Thrill is gone, Conor made 100 Million in one night fighting Floyd, the UFC has a fighter they can't afford now and Conor KNOWS THIS, Conor needs a NEW Challenge, He was a unify Champ at one time, I believe the grit is gone as far as UFC go's
