    Hey, great thread OP. We really needed more cuckboy conor fans making threads reliving past accomplishments while the division moves on from him.

    Good job!!!

    Dude.


    Don't be that guy...please, for the sake of your soul, don't be that guy.

    Hate Conor as much as you want. That's fine. But don't try to pretend that Conor didn't counter KO the fuck out of Peahead or that it was "luck"

    Clearly not, Conor has a 100% record when it goes the distance too. So you can misuse that stat to prove he doesn't gas out, if you want.

    I wouldn't give him guaranteed KOs over Holloway, Ferguson, or Khabib.

    I watched it earlier today, that shot was not "lucky" in the least bit.. how many 1st round KOs do you have to have before it becomes not "lucky?"

    It was a competitive round and a lucky punch to land right behind the ear. Obviously it wasn't aimed there, and landing anywhere else wouldn't have hurt Poirier, as he had already taken several shots on the chin. Not a fan of either of these guys, but 'lucky' is really the only way to describe THAT punch and finish. They've both improved a ton since then and it would be a good fight at 155.

    conor vs dustin was not a flash ko. Conor clowned him the entire time with incredible movement and well placed shots. I know it's in vouge to hate on conor, but don't take that one away from him. IMO it was one of his absolute best performances. I know it's a short fight but you really should do yourself the favour of watching it again, it was an absolutely flawless performance.

    I wouldn't call either of those "Flash ko's" a flash ko is when someones lights go out and they come right back on like the got ko'd for just a second. Frankie vs maynard 2 would be a good example of a flash ko. I also believe that weidman flash ko'd Silva with a shot in the clinch that dropped him. on replay you can see his eyes roll back into his skull.

    atleast that's what I've always believed to be a flash ko. The dustin and aldo were straight one punch ko's.

    How many athletes in their prime are so inactive that you have to remind people of their accomplishments?
