Diaz choked him out in the first fight after bloodying him pretty bad and I think Diaz won the second fight too. I get the weight difference, but I don’t understand how a guy can lose a fight to a pedestrian fighter and not look bad.If you think he looked bad against Diaz twice we just aren't going to agree on much on Conor at all. This to me was his worse looking performance. I actually started thinking he looked a little soft and unengaged during his walk in. I don't think he has the fire that pushed him to the top right now. He wouldn't be the first.
Top 1-2 ever at 45 and top 5 now at 55. It's just really hard to be an all time great when there's a glaring hole in your game, especially when it's on the ground.
Is anyone else familiar with or been following the stuff that's coming out about Ali Abdel Aziz and Dominance MMA?
And I don’t see all this looked disengaged stuff. Maybe he was scared, but don’t take anything away from Khabib by saying Conor didn’t show up to fight.
