Oh well if you're serious, he's a great, great fighter but he's only had 2 fights in the UFC against pretty much entry level guys. Very good entry level guys, but still entry level.
So just like all the greats pretty much, he's in that early period where many think he's the greatest and a future champ, HOFer, etc. and many others are like "wait til he fights a real guy, then he'll lose."
McGregor has a polarizing personality too so it's gotten more heated and deeply divided with him than with most other prospective greats, hence some people calling him GOAT and some people hating on him with an irrational passion.
Frankly I love the kid, his striking is the closest to Anderson's in the UFC besides Anderson himself of course.
