Conor is starting to look old man. You can see it in his face, the lines are starting to show. He can't take the damage. He can still dish it for now, but he can't seem to take it anymore.

I don't know if I like Dustin's confidence here or not. It's definitely legit, but I don't know if he's brushing off his last defeat to Conor as a fluke or his emotions getting the best of him or what have you. He seems a bit too confident for someone who got absolutely dusted the last time around.

This is a good match up for Conor style wise, there's no getting around that.
I don't think you can even compare the two fights. Both are completely different fighters now and if anyone should be having trouble with confidence it should be Conor. he' 3-3 in the last 4 years and 0-1 boxing. it's been a long time since he earned being a threat

Crack will do it to you. Speaking of which this ppv made me happy enough to experiment tonight.

Back to 145 where the power plays.
I was just about so say, when he got rich and decided that the cut wasn't worth it anymore, he lost one of his biggest advantages (if not his biggest). Cherry picking good fights I guess will only get you so far, even this stylistically good match up for him didn't work out as Dustin's chin held up better at 155. That was really the main difference IMO.

I hope Paul Felder calls out McGregor, do it in Dublin. That would be a dope fight and makes sense rankings wise. Do Chandler/diamond for the title if khabib is done.

I hate these filthy neutrals Kif. With enemies you know where you stand, but with neutrals? Who knows.

It sickens me.
