    Definitely impressive fighting one of the GOATS in boxing and then turning around and fighting one of the best right now in MMA.

    People will say anyone is ducking if they dislike them enough.

    Seeing as Khabib is probably on paper one of Conor's worst matchups, can't think of anyone else he is ducking by fighting Khabib..

    Do you get credit for getting destroyed by good fighters?

    IF he beats Khabib he still won’t get any credit from some. That’s just the way it is.

    His last two opponents have a combined 26-0 MMA record and Conor lost to the 0-0 guy and is going to lose to the 26-0 guy next.

    If he loses both what does that say? Impressive only if you get the W.

    Perfect thread for a fighter whose career is built on smoke 'n mirrors...meaningless.

    and yet has been given entirely too much credit by others. Called the GOAT, put ahead of Jones, Fedor, Anderson, and GSP even years ago. That is the biggest reason why he gets such a backlash of people who don't acknowledge his skills.

    Not a record in the slightest for boxing. There are plenty of guys with undefeated records against cans that are routinely fed to the the big dogs.

    And realistically Conor was yet another can for Mayweather's record.

    Combining boxing records and MMA records to enforce your argument. Always a winning decision.

    Finishing Mendes and Aldo says a lot, especially since Aldo is considered a GOAT. Also, Eddie is a top 10 all-time LW.

    Gotta give him credit. He’s not a GOAT but he sure does have a case. More so than saying he is not anywhere close.
