    Fuck this fool. He can't even take responsibility for his own idiotic behaviour. he also didn't mention punching the commissioner.

    Edit: agree but please don't fighter bashing - L

    I'm confused, every video i saw of Conor he immediately ran to his buddy to celebrate. The only time he went over to Redmond was to fight with the ref.

    If he was concerned for the fighter then why not go to him first? Maybe i'm missing something

    I don't want him to fail. Wouldn't wish that on anyone. I'd really like for him to get his shit together instead of falling into a downward spiral.

    That said, i can't stand his persona, have never rooted for him, and would love to see him lose both belts finally so MMA can move on as a sport

    He is blurring the line between the persona and reality

    It boils down to this: Conor added nothing and in no way helped the situation through his outburst. It is childish and incredibly egocentric for him to have believed or continue to believe otherwise.

    He didn't do anything to dq himself - it was fan interference. Imo that would be a no contest, I would think.

    I feel like Conor is trying very hard to keep his name in the MMA press without having to actually fight.

    As fans, we should aspire to be the type of fans who deserve referees like Marc Goddard.

    Ok that’s true since Conor wasn’t a cornermen. If he was than a DQ or essentially throwing in the towel should have been the call.

    The referee isn't the timekeeper. The referee makes the determination that the fighter is not intelligently defending himself, the timekeeper makes the determination if it happened during or after the round (if requested by the referee)

    Let’s also not fo
    correct but refs stop the action all the time and Godard didn’t stop the fight because he wasn’t defending himself. Also the ref can call a TKO even after the bell has sounded.

    Whatever your opinion, Goddard is a class class act. What a succinct, honest, down right refreshing retort to a mega star trying to paper over the fact he fucked up big time.

    Unfortunately nobody outside of hardcore mma fans will read Goddard's post and everyone will just go back to blowing Conor for being humble and accepting his mistakes.

    My opinion. Using that guy that died as an excuse for your actions is despicable. Unforgivable. If I was the family of that guy I'd release a statement telling Conor to go fuck himself and not use their son/brother/husband as an excuse for acting like a tool

    I think Goddard learned a lesson too. He definitely fucked up but his reasoning and description of his mindset seem honest and believable. He'll learn from this and be even better than he already is next time out.

    Won't be reffing Conor anytime soon though. Not just because Conor doesn't do mma anymore either
