I don't think hes going to be able to handle being smothered by a juiced up wrestler.

Dude, few people think McGoater is gonna be the GOAT. Its just a joke man, because of the hype this guy is getting. And no, I don't think he'll be champion.

I'm going to call it right now. Conor gets one title shot in his career and loses. He is plagued by injuries and is always in the mix but never quite gets over the hump. Lets not forget, 145 is a pretty stacked division now, its not like flyweight.

KZ would tool Mcgregor and finish him emphatically...

Haven't seen Conor prove to me that he's elite yet.

Since when Conor was "plagued" with injuries? He had a sever knee injury and had to take time to recover, but it doesn't mean he is made of glass like pettis. He has some of the better stand up skills, on par with Cub and Aldo, the thing is his ground which next fight he needs to fight a wrestler, like Nick Lentz or Clay Guida, but prolly Dustin Porier will be next.

he's been out for a year with an injury and all the "will he perform ok - ring rust" talk has been very minimal, from what i can tell. most of the talk just surrounds conor and whether he is the greatest ever or just one of the greatest right now. so there's that

Uh, Khabib defeated the current #5 LW.
McGregor hasn't even defeated anybody in the top 15.
Not even close to the same thing.
