    Conor is sometimes criticized for not having done enough at LW

    meanwhile he has more wins in the top 5 and top 10 than either Khabib or Tony

    Khabib and Tony have impressive streaks, yes, but lets be honest

    The Eagle

    - Edson Barboza (#6)
    - Al Iaquinta (#10) (~3 yrs inactive, short notice)

    El CuCuy

    - Kevin Lee (#5) (staph infected Lee)
    - Edson Barboza (#6) (short notice for Edson)

    The First King With Two Crowns

    - Eddie Alvarez (#3) (Humiliated)
    - Dustin Porier (#4) (Devastated)
    - Nate Diaz (#8) (Will Never Be The Same)

    Conor Bless

    Where does it say that? You're arguing with yourself again.

    Keep shifting that goalpost

    "He hasn't done enough at LW!"

    *Evidence of more wins in LW ranks*

    "errrrrr the rankings don't matter"

    <DisgustingHHH>

    If we're going to start cherry picking arguments for fighters no longer in the rankings because they were in the rankings... then we should add fighters who will probably soon be in the rankings too... like Max Holloway and Jose Aldo

    Nothing is cherry picked or fabricated. These are wins in the Lightweight rankings. You're also arguing with yourself.

    He had 100 million reasons

    Agreed. If he was ready for Edgar he should've been ready for Tony. I criticized him for that.

    Well Conor already has the most quality wins between Khabib, Tony & himself.

    So if Conor hasn't fought the best fighters at LW, neither have they.

    Conor is a great fighter but he is not the best LW.

    Funny how you left RDA off who was number 8 when he fought Khabib and like number 3 when he fought Ferguson.

    Nate beat him the first time and arguably the second time too

    Poirer had a bad weight cut before Conor fight

    Alvarez was a fluke champion. Conor needs to beat Lee, Tony or Khabib to be considered elite LW. I have Conor ranked #5 and thats being generous, guy hasn't fought for 2 years. I have him below Tony, Khabib, Lee, Hernandez and Taisumov

    Dustin Poirier was a FW win. Don't make up wins that didn't happen. He didn't beat Poirier at LW. You just made that fight up.

    Nate Diaz who has zero, zero top15 wins is a top10 LW. So ridiculous. In 2018, it is unquestionable that without Conor Mcgregor, Nate Diaz is no longer ranked at LW.

    Nate Diaz win - Diaz checked out of being a serious mixed martial artist years ago
    Poirier - Cut too much weight and had zero ability to take a shot
    Eddie Alvarez - lost all of his fights but was gifted a decision en route to his one win over RDA. Doesn't mean anything.

    See what I did there? I did an impression of you.

    Neither the Dustin nor the Nate fight were in the Lightweight division.

    Why did he not defend against either fighter? Why did he then offer to step in and fight the much smaller Edgar? He still has not fought the best fighters at LW and literally got stripped because he would not defend his belt.

    good point, no way Al is top 10, so in theory khabib has only one top 10 victory

    Facts like these are difficult to argue with.... I'm convinced.

    The whole rankings are a joke u can't say top 10 about anyone when they are not based on merit, media guys are the ones dictating everything.
