    I think so, I mean, the only time he struggled against someone in that weight class was against Chad, who had the takedown threat and had shown great striking himself in the second Aldo fight, and Conor still went on to finish him.

    overall striking? idk about that

    He had a lot of length and power. Good timing as well which is major key when it comes to striking.

    Undisputably.

    Holloway's the only one who comes close.

    Aldo is one of the best strikers we've seen in MMA and they both made him look like an average talent.

    aldo would have tested him if he hadn't been brain fucked. those leg kicks would have feasted on Conor's wide stance. too bad he was a mental miget

    That's not even a question, Conor is the GOAT FW striker by far.

    Yes. He KO'd the p4p #1 king who has never been knocked out in 13 seconds. WTF more is there?

    Go through that weight cut again to face plant little Frankie? Lol

    He said fuck that weight cut and destroyed the champ a division higher.

    Didn't he offer to "face plant little Frankie" recently though instead of actually defending his title against Khabib or Ferguson?

    You know that new contract? UFC would have had to sign it for Conor to step in and save the day.

    Instead they said fuck that and little Frankie got KO'd by a BJJ guy.

    aldo pretty much completely stopped his leg kicks before the conor fight and still hasnt used them since

    theyre very hard on the kicker too, especially if you eat a few good checks or just land wrong. can change the whole fight.

    Probably. Max comes close though. Aldo on a given day could be really competitive with them but he has unfortunately gotten the worst of the recent fights

    Is he the most awkward striker? Yes he has a really strange way of moving and standing which throw off his opponents, but overall talent not really. Enough with this already just go and beg to gargle Conor's nut sack maybe that will stop all this love for a fighter who doesn't fight.

    When was the last time Aldo threw leg kicks though? If he hadn't been put out early, chances are it would've largely been a boxing match that Jose would have lost.
    Then who is?

    Holy shit, people like fighters. Insane.

    I'll stop talking about Conor in a positive light when others stop trying to discredit him based on their feelings.
