    It’s funny hearing people comparing conor to the LW GOATs like khabib, ferg and BJ. He’s literally not even close.

    The guy has 1 fight at LW, a gifted title shot

    True, he can't even call himself a lightweight, it's just embarrassing when he is talked about as one of the best lightweight because he's barely even a lightweight and likely loses to most of the top guys

    He is close though. If you don't think he's a top LW after seeing him paste alvarez like he did you're insane.

    He can make the weight so he's a LW to me.

    I don't think anyone seriously thinks Conor is a GOAT. He made Alvarez look really bad though and he gives most fighters a hard time...

    Close in skill perhaps but in terms of accomplishments at LW to be in GOAT talks, not at all.

    Won the fight.

    How many champs won a title at a heavier weightclass while still being champ?

    None.

    It's crazy how much of his prime he's losing out on, Jones-esque except Jones already secured his legacy (aside from the roid thing).

    One flawless victory against the UFC LW champion.

    Edward got a free masterclass.

    Yeah Conor has 1 fight and is nowhere close to being GOAT. But neither are Khabib and Tony. Are we just handing out GOAT titles like the UFC interim ones?

    Conor has twice as many fights at WW than at LW (in the UFC). I'm not even sure if he can make 155 any more (he certainly can't make 145)

    Barely squeaked by with a majority decision though, and Nate crushed and finished him the other time they fought. Does that mean Conor lost to a lightweight then?

    one fight doesnt mean shit. imagine if matt serra's only welterweight fight was when he beat gsp and he spent the rest of his time on instagram and doing celebrity boxing matches. BEST EVER

    He took the easier path fighting Floyd. Way bigger payday also. He could of fought Tony or Khabib after starching Eddie, even if he lost he could get a rematch/fight the other guy for #1 contender or just do Nate 3. But the Floyd money was too good for all that.

    Why is the Diaz win relevant? He beat him at WW.

    That makes the loss relevant too then.

    GSP did it better. Not only did he do it after a long layoff and multiple injuries, he first completely wiped out the WW division several times over. If Conor had vacated the FW belt (which he should have done right away since he was never going to defend it) it's basically the same thing without all of the ring rust: one good win a weight class up against a weak champ.
