But even more incredible... The only time we saw him feel pressure was due to him gassing vs the pressure from Nates super human cardio. At 6 feet 172 lbs, one of the best chins in the game on top of being a volume punching triathalete, that's a pace Floyd comes nowhere near. But aside from then, in Conor vs Diaz two, it was incredible how calm he remained regardless of that same superhuman pressure... The punches bouncing off his head did not effect him, he barley blinked if at all at times... Regardless of who you thought won that fight, that is worthy of respect, otherwise you're cheapening Nates prowess aswell.
Back to the point. Conor just doesn't feel pressure and even vs eddie alvarez, who appeared to win the trash talk segment of the game, when it came to the fight, Conor was just pure ice, no emotion, just flow... The man has confidence on another level and his history of calmness probably will not be jeoporized regardless of what Floyd says or does.
"cut conor study"
Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Jon Bones Jones has used a similar philosophy to dominate the MMA World.
Conor may appear to be a freak of nature athlete but his greatest strength is hands down his mind. Paired with that supreme calm, he uses extensive visualization and film study to understand his opponent, to feel their timing, their rhythm, to feel the core of who they are before the fight even begins. He doesn't have a fixed method of how he should attack as he's always learning and growing with a maddening ethic. He just keeps going with his body and mind until his organic, constantly evolving style becomes a clean counter to his opponent.
There were a few more factors I could've gone more indepth in but I think that is more than enough to convey my point. I believe Floyd would absolutely destroy Conor if Conor was who he was when he won two weight divisions in the UFC, because, different disciplines, and floyd is one of the best boxers on the planet, it's an obvious outcome, but when you give conor time, that becomes very dangerous. It's not that Conor is bigger, younger, is a southpaw, it's not even the fact Conor has devastating 1 punch KO power. Conor is an adaptable machine, who as John Kavanagh would put it, works even when he's sleeping. He is an eternal student with an inhuman level of confidence no trash talk in the world can cave... I don't think Floyd should underestimate Conor at all... He's made too many people he's fought look effortless with few exception, and really, the more time you give him to study you, the more dangerous he becomes. His hardest fights have been with Chad Mendez and Nate Diaz probably partly due to the short notice resulting in less time to visualize and study them... There's too much footage and too much time for Conor McGregor to not to be a threat. I wouldn't be surpised if Conor became Floyds Karma for saying white people can't box... Who knows... What I do know is that win or even lose, that opinion will change. All of you opinions too, now should change. Not in Conor, but in yourselves. A part of me believes in Conor because study and hard work is a capacity capable within all of us. It is what allows humans to single handedly dig through mountains. Really some dude from india did that by himself, dug through an entire mountain.... Back to the point, I believe in Conor because I believe in you, and really, that's it... Only the person with the mindset and urgency to reach for the impossible will ever clasp it. If he fails, he only loses his regrets. If by some stretch of the imagination his fingers inch around it he gains everything.
