    Cowherd is about as qualified to speak about MMA as I'm qualified to teach molecular biology at Harvard.

    and who would you point them to?

    You think a casual is gonna listen to an MMA podcast? Or actually watch extra content?

    If they did, they wouldn't be a casual.

    You're right. Could've sworn it was 155 for some reason.

    he was wrong in stating 3 losses, but his rants point is pretty valid in my opinion.

    Conor is not as dominant as most nut huggers like to admit. Great fighter, but not GOAT (which many will try to illogically force you to believe).

    Conor was having flashes of trouble with Chad's boxing in the first.
    Conor got outboxed and finished by Nate Diaz
    Conor had trouble with Nate's boxing in the rematch and had to offset the issue by making a more kickboxing-centric approach, not by being a purely better boxer.
    Conor was getting pieced up by an off the couch Van Werden in the sparring video. There was an obvious mismatch in boxing skill between the two.

    Are you getting the point yet?
    He has a very tiny tiny chance to win. Floyd barely gets touched by world-class boxers. It would be naive to think he has more than a hail mary chance at winning

    I really don't think you can argue a solid point against that.

    Colin Cowherd, I've never heard of him but maybe that's because I'm not a cow.

    It's true though 1-1 with Nate isn't dominating MMA but beating Jose and Eddie was very good and sort of gives the impression of dominance, sort of.

    Outside of Nate Diaz who has all the attributes to give McGregor problems, CM has absolutely been dominating. It's amazing that these sports talk guys who don't know shit about MMA comment on it. Then again, that is their job - to talk about sports they don't know much about and maybe one or two they know decently well.

    The butthurt is real. Nothing Cowherd said was untrue.

    Connor is talking shit to sell PPV's aka make more money. He doesn't even believe he can win.


    Except Mayweather

    Mendes fight went 2 rounds and Mendes was winning for 1 and a half of them. Not dominating. If it was a dominating win no one would say I want to see him fight Mendes with a full camp.

    All true and worth pointing out that he only faced one really good wrestler/grappler and Chad clearly gassed in that fight. He had a ton of success taking McGregor down too.

    I don't think we'll ever get to see it but if he fights Khabib and doesn't catch him he's getting submitted or the fight stopped. Ferguson would be a tough fight too.

    A better matchup but still tough would be a Max rematch. Just to add to what you said, though, McGregor has exactly zero title defenses. If we want to talk about dominating a sport you have to defend multiple times.

    TBH a lot of his competition was pretty meh. He's really good but his 49-0 record is a bit of a sham.

    Of course he will crush Conor though. Obviously.

    This is what happens when D-bags who have never watched MMA try to talk on this sport.

    His record is very good IMO. Granted, you can argue about timing but he's beaten Oscar De La Hoya, Gotti, Hatten, Judah, Mosley, Cotto, Pac, Corrales, JMM, Canelo, etc.. We'll leave out Ortiz but man that's pretty fucking good if you ask me. At least 4 HOFers.

    I remember when I first heard this guy talk on ESPN, every since then, I stopped watching this guy. He doesn't seem to know what he talks about and is a nuthugger, especially if the athlete is right in front of him. lol.
