    RDA: was in a 5-win streak, became champ one year later. Destroyed Cerrone(2X), prime Benson, Pettis etc

    MJ: had just KTFO Dustin Poirier, soundly outstruck Tony(inb4 broken arm excuses) and Barboza

    Barboza: spinning shit, had just murdered Dariush

    Al Iaquinta: 5-win streak with 4 (T)KOs

    UPDATE

    Conor McGregor: once considered the best boxer in MMA

    This is a prime example of a strawman

    Almost none of those fights had more than a minute of time standing

    And most of those guys have no fucking hands


    Boxing in MMA is terrible.

    He would absolutely be KO'd by Conor if he spent even one round standing, let alone three the way he did last night

    "Khabib has now OUTSTRUCK pretty much all top LW strikers : RDA, MJ, Barboza, Al Iaquinta ..."

    That's impossible, as Joe Rogan called Khabib's boxing style amateurish.

    OP actually right khabib pieced those guys up even on the feet but its mainly becuz the threat of the takedown

    but conor still sleeps him if khabib tries to strike with him

    Conor has worse boxing than Al. I don't see how Conor the left straight one trick pony is going to do what no one else could.

    Maybe I'm missing something but since when were any of those guys the best strikers in the division?

    And I'm not sure why you would single out strikers since Al is the only one he outstruck on the feet.

    It is very obvious that he is good at using his arm and shoulder to block the right hand of Al. A southpaw would have much better luck. I wouldnt expect Kbib to stand with Conor at all.
