Besides Conor´s fans, does anybody seriously think he would have a chance against Woodley?

    No camp Mendes already showed us how that fight would go down. Mendes got the 1st takedown within 10 seconds of fight, but Conor was able to get up. Against full camp Woodley, Conor would absolutely never get up. And he´d get his brain smashed all over the mat with gnp.

    Woodley could also knock Conor out cold if he wanted to, he would easily land that right hand all night long. But obviously Tyron would need only one and it´s over. Mini Mendes was able to find McGregor's chin.

    Tyron would find that chin and crack it for good.

    Conor can´t go up and fight the WW champ and he can´t stay at LW and fight the true LW champ Tony.

    He´s "running" out of options.

    He lost to a fucking LW GATEKEEPER. Obviously anybody with a brain says no! Then again brains here are like jobs, most don't seem to have them.

    Did I hurt your feelings talking about your hero?
    If I say he´s a great champion, will that make you feel better?

    Well, it's a fight and Conor is really good at punching, so he has a chance. But no, I'd pick Woodley as a heavy favorite.

    I don't know how people watch that Mendes fight and think Mendes did well though. Yeah he stayed on top for a little while in both rounds, even landed some elbows, but every minute that fight was standing up, Conor was slapping him around the cage.

    Conor would put Woodley against cage and knock him out cold. Woodleys bull rush overhand won't work against best counter puncher on earth.

    If you're gonna call him 'No Camp Mendes', at least be fair and call him 'One Leg Conor'. He couldn't even train any wrestling rounds for that camp because his leg was so jacked up, but he fought anyway.

    In any case, I'm a huge Conor fan, but I would hate his chances against Woodley. He might be able to pull off a crazy knockout, that's certainly possible, but the smart money would be on Woodley gameplanning another strategic decision.

    Not a Conor fan in the least, but you'd be foolish to underestimate his abilities. Could easily win.

    He would have a 15 pound or so weight disadvantage, so he'd have to let Woodley tire himself out.

    Early rounds are for T.Wood, later rounds are for Conor.

    No.

    Woodley's wrestling isn't impressive against full sized 170 pounders, but he's ragdolling a 155 pounder with no wrestling background. And Woodley's GNP is pretty fucking terrifying if he postures up. Which he would.

    FFS. The punch Conor tends to get hit most by are straight rights over the top. And Woodley loves to throw it as a counter too. If he's fast enough to catch Wonderboy with it, he's fast enough to catch Conor with it.

    Conor at 170 is laughable.

    Usually I'll say anything is possible but when the guy is coming from a fight he had zero chance he could win (and it showed) I think Conor has no chance.

    Well the fact you are using gas tanks like Conor has one is pretty amazing.

    This should be titled. I see the world in black & white or I can't handle opinions different to mine so I label those who disagree with me under a single group.
    The first one's catchier but both work.

    Conor has a very good chance to beat Woodley.

    I would favor Woodley but Conor can hurt him so he'd likely be backing up for the 1st half of the fight.

    It's pretty easy to dismiss Conor's gas tank. The myth of him having poor cardio needs to be put to rest. People that allude to that are generally inexperienced with any sort of martial art or combat sport training.

    Again, to preface, not a Conor fan in the slightest.

    The only 2 contests where he fatigued were the Diaz fights and against Mayweather. They are often attributed to poor conditioning (whether genetic or improper preperation) but both reasonings can easily be debunked:

    Diaz I: When fighting a bigger opponent, the typical gameplan should be to use quickness and cardio to drag the opponent into the later rounds. When the bigger opponent get's fatigued, the smaller fighter has the opportunity to capitalize without fear of taking a full power shot. Weathering the storm as they say. Conor was use to fighting much smaller opponents (due to his massive weight cut at 145) and did not pace himself and threw everything at Nate but the kitchen sink. Even when he landed well he had 2 things against him:

    1. He was the smaller fighter (less power generally)

    2. Nate Diaz arguably has the chin of a Light heavyweight.

    Head hunting is not the best strategy as a smaller fighter. Very easy to tire yourself out when the bigger opponent doesn't fall.

    His strategy in the 2nd fight was the correct, but the X-Factor that is Diaz's chin proved to still be tiring for the smaller opponent. Diaz showed fatigue in the later rounds and even when he was fresher then Conor, he couldn't do much due to the leg damage he took in the earlier rounds. Work low to high on a bigger opponent, not high to low. So Conor's strategy still worked.


    Mayweather: Arguably the easiest to debunk.

    1. Bigger fighter (more power, less gas tank)

    2. Very unfamiliar/in experienced with boxing rules and strategy. He wasted a good amount of energy trying to fight for a silly clinch attack that he had no business doing.


    If Conor employs the strategy he had against Diaz in the 2nd fight, he could easily win. Very doubtful that Woodley takes some of those shots that Diaz took. But Woodley could easily knock Conor out as well. They're both champions, and that's the reality of it.

    Again, early rounds are for Woodley and later are for Conor.

    Anything can happen. Instinct tells me Conor would get mauled though, as long as Woodley doesn’t “fight” like he did in his last two contests.

    If THAT Woodley shows up, Conor lights him up until the ref stops it.
