    In my opinion, it has similar intensity and technique, in the way how finishing strikes were delivered

    Conor was masterful in that fight. It was shocking to see it unfold.

    In all of those gifs Conor is countering with combos, Fedor is initiating contact.

    Also, Fedor and Timmeh are much sexier

    blows my mind that theres a lot of idiots running around saying conor ain't that good.
    he put a masterclass of a beating on a guy that DESTROYS other great fighters.

    Nah, McGregor knows how to throw a punch. Fedor looped punches like a drunken frat boy fighting over a girl. As Fedor's competition stepped up, he started paying the price for his sloppiness.

    Fedor ruthlessly attacking a baby giraffe and choking it out. What an apex predator he was.

    This is what the Sherdog's anti Mcgregor crowd refuses to acknowledge. McGregor destroyed Alvarez, destroyed Poirier, destroyed Holloway, destroyed Aldo....never lost a round to any of these guys yet he is a bum who was gifted both title shots.

    Any they fail to give Diaz props for being a great striker. Most of the fights Diaz loses he's being taken down. He rarely loses a standup fight.

    More established in their division, as well. Both had multiple successful title defenses as champs and weren't that far removed from it.

    Crazy to see how both of them fell off of a cliff in their own ways... Fedor with losing a shit load of fights suddenly.
    Sylvia with health in general it appears.

    Kind of true, Diaz has solid striking but he was getting housed by RDA standing. Thompson and Guillard gave him fits standing as well. You are correct that most of his loses came to wrestlers.
