It will be better for the UFC too if he moves to LW since he will be entering into the real man's divisions

if hes going to 155 he might as well enter a mud wrestling tournament. its all grapple fucking up in that whacked out weight class.

yea yea, what about pettis, what about cerrone. thats where the list ends. stop bringing nate diaz up, he doesnt fight anymore. just a bunch of men hugging and laying. let'em stay at fw, where people actually fight for a living

Look at Connors fights at 155 he does look better. That's not saying he will whoop Nates ass.

Conor isn't a leg kicker, he's a boxer first with a decent kicking game. Nate has longer reach, is also a south paw, and has a chin and is used to scrapping.

It would make for a fun fight. Nate should be the favorite though. Conor can also get caught in a sub against Nate.

This ^^^

Though I don't think McGregor styles on Poirier, maaaybe wins, but not styles on.

145 has some monsters at the very very top. Top 4 guys are animals. Fighting Swanson, Mendes, Edgar, Aldo... terrifying propositions.

But below that, McGregor has tough fights but stands a chance to make a top 10 name and potentially dodge the beasts.

Look at LW, to even get into the top 10 you're fighting savages. The top 5? Forget about it. Does McGregor even get past Khabilov or RDA? I doubt it. And those are your fringe top 10s not to mention Diaz and Cerrone who would also probably beat Conor handily. Josh Thomson? Probably fucks Conor sideways.

Conor at FW is good - if he lives up to this ridiculous hype, maybe he makes a 155 run later on. He's got years.
