    The only comparable to Frankie out of all of Conor's opponents is Mendes.

    Chad took him down fairly often.

    I agree with OP, Mendes is a better wrestler than Edgar, and we all know how that one ended

    It's not MMA Math when Aldo has proven to be MUCH better than Frankie, and Conor starched him in record time. And they fought Aldo within 7 months of each other.

    Only noobs think every case of comparing results against mutual opponents is "MMA Math"

    Probably 75% chance Frankie wins at any weight.

    At 145 frankie wouldnt have survived that scenario.Edgar punched himself out. Conor woulda have put him away in 2 or 3 follow up hits. Direct hits.

    He has TDD against mediocre shots, but has never really shown success against top level competition that was proactively shooting.

    While the chances of Conor finishing Edgar by KO or TKO are possible, the chances of Edgar taking Conor down and grappling him into exhaustion are greater.

    Continue making an ass of yourself and making wide sweeping MMA math proclamations based off of a 13 second fight ending in a flash KO if you want. Don't worry, we'll keep laughing.

    I'd give Conor the edge in that fight.

    Guys like Tony or Diaz are terrible match ups for Conor because they're tough as hell and have a big submission threat. Frankie doens't have a great offensive submission game so when Conor drops him, he'd have no problem jumping on him and trying to finish him

    That being said, Frankie is good enough to smash Conor too

    And then Chad got knocked out in the second round lol.

    Plus Conor really started working on improving his TDD after the Mendes fight. He also stuffed a few of Chad's shots as well.
