If Conor had fractures before going into the fight and his game plan included leg kicks, then Kavanagh is a moron.

When he was on Rogan, Kavanagh said the game plan against Khabib was to stay on the ground after he takes Conor down, then admits that was a mistake.

If Conor really wants to be known as one of the all time greats, he should really consider leaving his camp and expand his MMA knowledge.
Is Conor a black in any discipline?

Not gonna miss weight when majority of your career is 5 month camps
10 fights in 3 & half years when he first started in the ufc. 7 of those at featherweight.

Missed 12 months in that period due to the ACL injury in the Holloway fight.

Never missed weight.
Accepted two late replacement fights against Diaz & Mendes.
One at a much higher weight against Diaz.

He has to be credited for his professionalism when it comes to actually fighting.

RDA has put his hand up to fight Islam.
Sounds like a definite goer.
I take my hat off to RDA, cause no one wants that fight (and rightly so).
This is incorrect. Top 5 guys don’t want him because he has beat nobody.

The fact he has jumped to #5 in the rankings after beating a guy ranked #14 is a joke.

Rda #7, Hooker #8 & Lee #11 have all talked about fighting him.

Yeah, generally when someone says that nobody wants to fight them - it's because they're ranked either at the tail end of the 15 or not at all, and are calling out top 5'ers. Of course they're not gonna jeopardize their spot for no gain. But it's largely an ego based game in that regard.

Edit: Kinda like the Sean O'Malley or Khamzat narratives before they were ranked. Scared? Not likely, what's the incentive to want to fight them if you're knocking on the door of a contender fight?
