  • I want to feel sorry for him because this is really sad, but he hasn't learnt. Rape allegations, bus incident, smashing fans phones, hitting the ref at Bellator, cheating on his wife with public pics released, allegedly having a baby to another woman, hitting an elderly man on a bar stool, total coke head and drunk, it's just a train wreck.

  • Connor is one of the best fighters in the world, one of the best self-made Fighters as well. He didn't have a father training him his whole life, he didn't have anyone and still proved himself to be an incredible athlete and Warrior. In my opinion he should retire and enjoy his hard-earned Rewards.

  • there is no doubt in my mind that even though it seems like he is on coke or something, I believe he has just lost his mind like he said he would a long time ago. he's changed and not for the better and I don't know if we will see the old Conor ever again. we are being shown the mind lost Conor.

    • True man.. friend of mine met a person from Ireland in Bulgaria, he told him that he is training in Cavanaugh's academy.. he also showed him a picture with Conor and told him that he is doing some coke. Maybe is true maybe not but after footages like this I'd rather concern that as a true claim.

I can hear the judge if Dana took it too court, which would make him a dick, sorry Mr white, you allowed this man to be insulted and antagonized you had it coming... ahahahahaha.. I've been hoping for it
