Oh my god. The Nats’ chances of advancing in the post-season were dead the whole time!
I boxed in college, which is a bit like saying I once SCUBA dived in one of those plastic kiddie pools, and even I have much better form than Conor. Any boxing gym worth its salt has at least one 15 year old kid who would whup Conor in a boxing match. Easily. I mean, completely humiliate him. And he’s going in against…
In his UFC career, Conor has averaged about 5 strikes/minute in a 15-25 minute fight. A boxer of approximately his size would average closer to 20-30 punches/min for a 30-36 minute fight. It’s very different in terms of anerobic output.
Remember when he released that footage of him trying unsuccessfully to jump on a pillar? This is just his bag.
I’m getting to this late, but I’ve got to say, I don’t like basketball but I love reading your articles on it. Who knows, maybe you’ll convert me to a fan one of these days.*
I don’t want to destroy happy memories, so don’t read on if you want to hold to that, but Cus was a garbage trainer and the myth that Tyson was much better under him is nonsense. He was fighting nobodies carefully selected to roll over and die in the most scintillating possible way. And he was never on “the straight…
Absolutely not. Tyson would never have beat Holyfield or Lennox Lewis, let alone the greats of years past when the heavyweight title was the most sought after sports title on the planet. Tyson was an amazing hype job who only reigned during a brief drought between Holmes and Holyfield
Oh yeah, scrappy that guy was. Excellent fundamentals. High motor on him. Sneaky athletic. Sun burns easily...
Tyson is not in the Top 3 heavyweights of his era. He is not in the Top 100 fighters of all time. Unless you score only on entertainment value, in which case, to each their own.
Sugar Ray Robinson. I see no reason to buck the conventional wisdom on that.
They have “Prince,” but not “princess,” “king” or “queen,” so I guess you select that one if your hat is a raspberry beret.
Let’s not forget Holloway was like 12 years old, survived the assault, and has been a one man wrecking crew since.
I just want to confirm that Rachel Nichols and Michelle Beadle will both receive press credentials to any and all Deadspin-promoted fights.
I certainly don’t rule that out but I think Gadelha still beats her in 3. JJ is capable of anything but Gadelha is so much stronger.
She’s not just the greatest female fighter in the UFC, she’s the greatest female fighter in any combat sport, and I think perhaps the single most dominant fight in any sport today.
Depends what you mean. Smashed sesamoids were always ugly. Anything where the leg was shattered and the horse tried to stand up on it and then went down again. But catastrophic injuries usually put the horse into shock right away. A bad bowed tendon seems to cause them more pain.
We were so young...
What do you expect with these Pampered rich kids?
Or buy a lightly used Rolex Daytona and a bus pass. The Rolex will appreciate in value, you can show it off everywhere you go - not just on the road, it runs on the motion of your arm - not gas, it has a better racing pedigree than any of these cars, and when people ask why you don’t have a car, you can just stare at…
Wherefore the myth that Conor is well-liked by Deadspin writers?
