I didn't think Khabib looked tired at all although he might've taken the third round off.
Maybe he wasn't tired but he definitely slowed down. Tony pushes a really high pace, if he's going to slow down against a guy with McGregor's style, Tony will be a nightmare. Now the good news is he can always work on improving his cardio/pace.

I don`t think he was tired either, he had enough energy after he won to jump over the cage and jump on Conor`s people.

Cormier is a pretender. If Jones were allowed to compete he would've wiped out the Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight division, including DC... who he beat twice. Professional watchers agree that the roids didn't give him those wins, it was clear physical advantage each time.

I agree Jones is a better fighter but give Cormier some credit. The list of fighters he has beaten is a impressive list.
stubhub and clearly.ca suck, like really suck

Roids didnt help Jones? I would take DC by KO over a non juiced Jones at heavyweight. If you think roids doesn't help your chin think again.

woulda coulda shoulda. if he didn't need the roids to win (and i'm on not saying he did) then why did HE make the choice to take them? JJ's got no one to blame but himself.

Jones has always been a baller. Under-training, coke, roids, car accidents, he pushes the limit of good sense in many areas.

Classic baller move.

in both instances of the word baller i would have used headcase in its place.

Cormier > Jones

At least with Cormier, you know he won't cheat and he won't be pulled from the card in the last minute. And at heavyweight, I think Cormier would beat Jones.
Baaaaaaaaa!

Jon Jones is what happens when you get a natural super athlete and put them into MMA instead of hockey / basketball / football, etc. Unfortunately Jones' lifestyle really tarnishes his legacy and puts things into question with regard to performance enhancing drugs.

As for DC, that was a great win, he made it look easy. I really wish he would just skip the fight with Brock and give Stipe a rematch. I feel bad for Weidman, he seems to fall short near the end of a fight too often, but as a jiu-jitsu guy I'm glad to see Jacare win.

Anyone going to UFC 231 in Toronto?

Natural super athlete? So he can run fast and jump high? How do you know?

It's an educated guess, but based on the fact that we was able to take down Cormier, knock out quite a few people with relative ease and win world title fights with little preparation I'd say he is a natural super athlete. Being a natural athlete isn't strictly tied to jumping high and running fast.

Edit: Let's not forget siblings in the NFL, you have to be a natural super athlete in addition to your football skills to make it in the NFL.

Cormier is a crier, he's no prototype for men.

Jon Jones' life is one big ball session, a mountain of a man, who partook in some slight roids when his natural frame, genetics, and training proved superior to Cormier (twice).

There is no comparison.

A fairer statement.

Had USADA and the UFC played ball, JJ would've had both belts and retired a legend.
