    It’s shocking he made it out of round 2. He still has heart but he’s showing signs of washed.

    I guess the question is how long before the hype eclipses the skill, reducing his marketability to the point of diminishing returns.

    We are right there my friend. He will show up for a few more paychecks but he’s headed down Rousey road.

    I am having trouble understanding why some are saying he is washed up and a bum?? He has lost 2 fights in the UFC, Khabib and Diaz. Losing to those 2 is nothing to be embarrassed about. Now from his own doing, he hasn’t fought since 2016 in the cage. He is not very good on the ground, that is obvious since both of his losses are from chokes. He stand up is still one of the best. He is 30 so I don’t think he is exactly going to all of sudden get some ground game going but to say he is washed up? I will need to see a couple more fights before I go that far. One difference between him and Rousey is that Rousey found out that she had a long lasting glass jaw. Conner has not shown that yet.

    McGregor wants a re-match, Dana White isn't even thinking about a re-match yet. Also accord to Dana White, Khabib could be stripped of his title depending on what the Nevada Athletic Association wants to do.
