    Let's be real. Diaz beat him once and the second fight was pretty close. Diaz is not even a top 5 material. Ferguson/Khabib will 100% beat him. Even Diaz has a great chance choking him out again. Unless the UFC offer him an easy fight like CM Punk, he won't return fighting

    If we are being "real," Diaz's skillset matched up extremely poorly for Conor...only fighters who have the undead zombie chin can hope to stand a chance versus dat left hand shot.

    Diaz was easily the hardest matchup for Conor...and after Conor trained specifically for Diaz, he won.

    Not fighting is the best thing he can do . The odds of facing the top guys at LW and coming out unbeaten are very very low . His brand takes a hit and his gimmick loses its lust with defeat. The whole "champ champ" persona means nothing when you realize he's just another good fighter surrounded by good fighters and not some god

    Both tony and bib would beat Greg.


    Greg was “pulled” from 219 to book Tony and bib. Killing contenders thst could potentially beat Greg.

    And until they allow weapons and remove the rules in fights so is the UFC so it's a bit of a stupid comment.

    Conor would make more fighting Oscar DeLaHoya than anyone in the UFC.

    Where's your betting slip?
    You can make a lot of money, because almost everyone else thinks otherwise

    Apparently TS is dumb enough to not realize the key principle of MMA " Style makes the fight"

    You think Mayweather would last one round with Conor in an MMA fight?

    Is this a joke, or are you trying to convince yourself???

    Diaz's skillset is the exact kind of fighter that makes Conor look good. He blocks most punches with his chin, plods forward slowly but surely, is content to counter with routine and basic combos, has shitty offensive wrestling and takedowns, and throws one or two kicks a year.

    He should be Conor's wet dream, and Conor got choked out in the first fight and managed to survive and go the distance with an injured Diaz in the rematch.

    No, he'd either get leg kicked to death, easily subbed or head kicked KOed.

    Doubt he'd last a minute.

    Doesn't to do with my point really.

    If Nate did not have his ground game maybe. But when he got hurt he just dropped and could recover.

    He's not, but he is a puncher and managed to hit Floyd flush several times doing no damage at all.

    He has great power but its not Hendo level power, one touch death power - he's got pin point perfect accuracy which destroys lesser men than Floyd in MMA.

    The idea only a zombie chinned fighter beating Conor is not likely - thats my point.
