  • 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.
