That night was like being high on crack for the first time. Amazing to watch, but depressing when it finished knowing you might never get one as good again or for a while

All fighters are liars, which can be and often is a good thing.
Rory MacDonald says he was not motivated the first time he fought Robbie Lawler. We ask Luke Thomas if he believes the Canadian fighter.

+Astrong417 you are so right, i saw the same thing after watching the fight a few times. I also think that he wanted to feel Mendes's power just to show to us it wasn't a problem. All and all, i believe the whole fight was premeditated by Conor. Someone should ask Conor that question.
