    Conor made a complete fool out of himself in the pressers before his fight with Floyd, was his lost to Floyd more humiliating than his loss to Poirier because he was far more polite in the presser v Poirier?

    I dont think losing to floyd was humiliating as nobody expected him to win and he made so much money.

    In my opinion, losing to Porier was way more humiliating

    Floyd is 50-0 as a professional, and one of, if not the best boxer in his era. Conor fought him in his first professional fight in his own sport.

    Dustin Porier beat Conor at his own game in his own sport.

    Nate Conor 1 and Mcgregor Khabib were far more humiliating though, because of the trash talk

    Conor absolutely backed up his trash talk with Floyd. He took at least four rounds off of him and befuddled this supposed uber boxer with his footwork. AS A DEBUT FIGHTER. DEBUT. He'd never boxed as a pro before. Let's not forget that.

    He said he would stop Floyd in four rounds.

    Then why did he say all that crap? You said he backe up what he said but he didn`t even come close to winning, the fight was more or less over by the fourth round, Conor just couldn`t adapt the way Floyd did, he was a one trick pony in a boxing ring.

    :rolleyes: One guy came out looking good - Conor - and the other came out making excuses that he "carried" McGregor for the audience. Floyd knew that he'd looked like a twat in the sport that he reckons he is "The Best Ever" in, and he was rightfully embarrassed.

    If I had to fight Mike Tyson in a 4 rounder, I don't care what I look like by the end of the fourth round, if I'm still standing I look good and he looks bad.

    That's what is at play here.

    Footwork haha stop fishing. He moved like a crab and flailed punches like an extra from the walking dead.
