    Inside 1 round. Conor has never lost an MMA match against anyone who is smaller than him reach wise. Infact everyone with less reach than Conor has been slept inside 2 rounds.

    Aldo
    Alverez
    Mendes
    Siver
    Brimage
    Brandao
    Etc

    Only people with more reach give Conor trouble. IE his 1 loss to Nate. Also his dominate win over a taller max holloway, but didn't finish him.

    If Conor would have stuck to 145 division, he would never lost a single fight.

    Conor lost to a flyweight Artemij Sitenkov who weighed less than Mighty Mouse. Pretty sure he had a lesser reach than Conor too.

    Also, Conor ducked Frankie Edgar.

    It's not a striking match it's mma

    Frankie has a massive wrestling advantage

    Think Mendes but with amazing cardio and much better boxing skills

    I think canner would have a great shot of knocking frannie out if he connected before edgar put him on his back. In years past, edgar has proved to be very hittable, and that's mc-g's bread and butter.

    Yet Conor's victory over equally green Holloway is super relevant for Conor fans.

    You can't have it both ways.

    Frankie is a different animal to all of those guys... Nobody sleeps him.

    It's so weird to see this new generation of fans that have no idea how terrible a match up this is. Frankie doesn't throw crazy swings to counter, he's an in-and-out boxer that switches up with wrestling and very fast top control, and never gets tired... It's a nightmare fight for Conor.

    This would be a puncher's chance fight for Conor, because Frankie neutralises his offence completely and has everything needed to win himself.

    Conor can only fight midgets.

    Lost to gatekeeper Diaz and barely got a decision in their second fight.

    Now imagine fighting Tony or Khabib. He would get wrecked.

    Conor avoids his natural weight class for a reason.

    Aldo is the anti-Edgar
    Conor is the anti-Aldo

    and Edgar is the anti-Conor

    You're not KO'd till you're KO'd. You're not in a fight till you're in a fight. Frankie has been in wars, Conor would sleep him.

    Pretty sure that still fits in your 'never' timeline, genius.

    Frankie would get conor down quickly, and conor wouldn't survive long there.

    Max Holloway was 21 at the time and was in the UFC longer than Conor was? How about speaking the truth and try to get your cheap likes.
