    SAS is the new Mike Goldberg of the UFC. That being said, shoutout to Khabib. He humbled these two. Now Dustin is a better fighter and Connor learned to watch what he says/does. It's baby steps, but good lesson learned

    Props to Stephen A. Smith. His MMA analysis has improved dramatically! You can clearly tell he went back and made it a goal to master the intricacies of the sport.. If y’all remember he even did some MMA training in the gym. For all the talk BLM does, SAS actually took action and I can say he legit gained his black race a ton of respect with his example of taking blacks where they’ve never been before. Thanks to him, BLM in MMA.

    Chael, you're an idiot. Poirier had only one fight in 2020 too. Where was the ring rust in Poirier? They BOTH had only one fight in 2020 -- that's not a legit excuse for big mouth Conor.

    coner was over-hyped by the media. that was his best game, according to his camp, that was their best. but he was sub par to a dominating Diamond Dustin. Knocked out. de-railed. and now with 6 month medical suspension, he'll be lucky to fight again in 2021.

    Connor is not a top 10 fighter, his ranking is because he sells tickets. Connor is 1-2 over the last 4 years with that 1 win against Cerrone, hardly a record that deserves a top 5 opponent. Most fighters with that record would not even have a contract with the UFC. The casual and delusional fanbase that Connor has is unparalleled. Side note, Stephen A is a clown that should not be commentating anything other than basketball.

    1:25 ya but that KO of Poirier was basically the 'punchers chance' which he went down and couldnt recover before McGregor pounced on him. Should've been a different fight. Actually many of conors fights should've been different. But he's still a great fighter.

  • Harun SkyWalker
    Harun SkyWalkerMonth ago

    If Conor fights Khabib, Ferguson, Oliviera, Gaethje or rematches Poirier he is getting knocked out. Time to call out mid-tier fighters like Nate Diaz and Cerrone, even Al Ianquinta, Kevin Lee and Dan Hooker. He is not elite and they all know it. But he is rich!
