According to Mcgregors social media hes back in the gym, and as we know hes a lazy bastard and wouldn't be there for no reason, so maybe he'll fight this year? (He's fighting Tyron Woodley.)

Is this one of those things where it is live-streamed and they allow open questions? I vaguely recall the last time Jones appeared in one of these being a complete clusterfuck (and extremely entertaining)?

I'm actually pretty excited about this one. Malki Kawa is telling anyone who will listen that Jones will not only get off, but fight by the end of the year.

There's no reason to believe him whatsoever, but I'd still like to see the proceedings.

Was at the bike show, and Conor McGregor's training bike was there. The paint job is pretty impresive.


His cardio coach was junior national cycling champ and told Conor to cross-train cycling. He went from some cheapo Chinese knockoff bike to this, which is prob 8-10k street price.

thats a nice bike, its better than the one i race on and definitely way more expensive. i knew he was cycling to train for his 2nd nate fight and personally i think more fighters should pay attention to cardio since there's no real reason they can't all be as fit as the diaz brothers. he should have gotten in touch with sean kelly though

like look at the dramatic improvements he made between fight 1 and 2. he went from crashing and burning in round 2 to matching diaz's pace over 5 rounds. true he started to tire in i think rd 3 but diaz wasnt far behind him in that fight

The finer details of the detailing (hur) are surprisingly subtle for McGregor.

Conor doesn't need that to gas badly and it's kind of sad how little the bike work did for him.

Being able to box for 9 rounds with a boxer so far above your level it was considered a circus fight in his first professional boxing match was the most impressive display of gas I've seen from Conor. He was actually still fighting about 5 rounds past where I expected him to gas and die.

.... Conor McGregor.

Are you kidding? His Cardio lasted 3 x longer than anyone predicted and it's not as if he ever fell over. He landed more shots that Pac. I dislike Connor immensely but that's unfair.

There are professional boxers with half a hundred fights that are completely gassed in the championship rounds - only 3-6 minutes more than Conor - and they're fighting people that don't completely outclass them so severely that everyone is only watching to see when exactly it is they die.

Everyone does realize that Mayweather took the first 4 rounds of that fight off and let Conor punch himself out right? It's not like Floyd was dancing around the ring and making Conor chase him.

Also, not coincidentally Conor gassed after about 10 minutes.

Yeah. And not just in yhe literal sense of punching. He throws yhe same capoeira combos in every fight, throws a pile of kicks and straight lefts, snd then immediately slows down. It would takr a lot of bike work to get to the point to maintain his early pace/pressure for 3 rounds, let alone five

Normally conor works really hard to keep a fight at just the right range where his opponent has to move into conors range to engage, shoot or try to clinch. Against eddie he didnt have to do anything because eddie just volunteered to always wander into yhe pocket and circle into conors left. Even after the fight eddie was like "what the gently caress was i doing". Conor wont gas in fights like that
