UnderGround Forums Conor the perfect storm

Conor is obviously very skilled but his fights are enigmas. They are the biggest and grandest occasions and they are built for him. Conor hit that 1 in a billion trajectory(that might not even make sense)

I don't think people realise how much self belief and confidence can do for you. Conor Is Ice cold and can handle these massive occasions like nothing, because they are his and he created them. From his third fight onwards. Brandao, Siver, Dustin, Chad, Jose and Eddie these fights were spectacles, which got bigger as the opponent got tougher. I think Conor was that much more comfortable and familiar and thrived under the lights. Jose Aldo one of the best ever commiting hard to a big right inside ten seconds. That's not Jose Aldo. Eddie Alvarez who looked like a straight killer on Saturday standing there like a deer in headlights getting lit up by Conor. Dustin who turned into a pissed off teenager trying to KO the counter striker.

Diaz is legit g and gives no fucks and we saw what happened. Conor showed he has great skills as well and redeemed himself. 

Im not slating Conor's skills he's a beast and could very well beat these guys when you take everything else away but not like it happened. These men couldn't handle the occasion.

Conors mind games, confidence, self belief and skill set make him a forbiddable opponent to anyone. 

Ps. I'm stoned as fuck so I don't even know how much sense this makes.

Great points. 

It’s the intangibles that he excels at - creating a pressure cooker and then thriving in it.

He doesn’t make fights, me makes events - you nailed that point too. Folks can be upset that he hasn’t defended a title but, had a title defense been the biggest opportunity on the biggest stage Conor would gladly defend - he’s just had better opportunities -opportunities he created.

PS - I’m stoned too!

I have to give credit to Connor. The chin that Alvarez just put on display was cracked instantly by Connor. Chin's don't usually "improve," so much as degrade so that makes it all the more badass. 

Really hope he comes back to MMA, so many fucking great fights for him to be wasting his fucking talents on boxing, although with the paydays I understand.

I always wonder if there's an objective, "best approach," to the mental aspects of the game. People like GSP are constantly afraid and anxious and use that to push their training and to harness their adrenaline. People like Connor or Diaz seem to pump themselves up and build themselves up to the point where it can border on delusion, but that seems to work for them and make them ready to take on anything -- I don't think either Diaz has EVER lost a fight. And then there's people like Fedor and Rory who seem borderline emotionless and all too tactical.

And this is why he had even less of a chance against Mayweather. Mayweather is more comfortable and has more experience than anyone in the fight game fighting under these conditions of mass attraction.

Or he chose a boxing match with a master boxer. 

In a fight, well, you know..

Good thread until the haters jumped aboard.  Those fags would be hilarious if they weren’t so ignorant.
