    Conor is accurate and a great power puncher and bj was accurate , medium power but fast . If conor was 8 years younger and fought bj while in his prime who you think would've won ? I think baby conor beats prime bj anytime

    Conor is in his prime though.

    and no, BJ would be licking Conor's blood after 2 rounds.

    Possible. But, I'd give the edge to BJ.

    It would have been fairly even on the feet. But, massive advantage to BJ on the ground. Just my opinion.

    Lol are you serious? Thousands of fighters have tapped to a choke.

    BJ penn quit on the stool mid-fight.

    Correction: Conor easily taps to chokes

    --- plus BJ in his prime was amazing at choking out opponents

    Excuses? The TS asked about fighting BJ in his prime. Go back to sleep.

    BJ is a shell of his former self -- I can easily admit this -- but it seems pretty clear you've never seen BJ fight in his prime

    bj could take the power shots conor could throw and would pown him on the ground. i give the edge to bj winning in impressive fashion. also bj did hqve good power, knocked hughes out with a punch and he had idea what hit him. got up and asked if it was a kick

    chickened out fighting gsp for a third time, yeah ok bud lol. he lost it happenes, he was exhausted couldnt hold gsp down cause he greased. But regardless he stepped in there with monsters. top guys a lot heavier then him. BJ is the man and its a sin the new generation wasnt around to witness it. Ill never forget watching the uno fight live. amazing
