    I understand the frustration, but this is the truth.

    Nate is a stylistic very hard fight for Conor and poses great risk.

    If Conor wins the third fight, Tony or Lee will be PICKED APART standing with Conor.

    Nate Diaz is a gatekepeer, he's never really been a contender. He lacks discipline

    Absoutely, he's got an unbreakable chin, which takes McGregor out of his normal gameplan and forced him fight differently than he would against 95% of other guys.

    Neither Tony nor Lee would be able to take the shots nate did in the first round of either Conor/Nate fights

    That said Conor needs to fight winner of Ferg/Lee next.

    I was wondering how Conor fans would try to justify this, all I knew is there argument would be devoid of facts.

    Tony is like a more well rounded Diaz so I disagree.

    Tony can take Conor down while Nate can't.This is a problem for Conor.but if both Nate and Tony try to strike with current Conor then both of them would get ko

    Maybe true but Conor had fought that fuck Nate twice. Time to fight Tony, Khabib, Lee, Sage, Stevens and any other asshole that weighs 155... then go fight Canelo and GGG out the door.

    I mean if you made a fighter that was Conor's kryptonite, he would have:

    -Granite chin
    -Cardio for days
    -Good boxing
    -Doesn't get fazed by trolling

    Basically describing Nate Diaz

    Tony would be knocked down by the first straight left.

    Tougher then Lee yes, but I question if Nate would be tougher than Tony.

    I think they'd be comparably hard for Conor.

    Tony is more well rounded than Nate, just as good cardio, just as mentally tough, with worse boxing, maybe a worse chin, but better kicks and TDs.

    Sounds like T.Ferg, but add good wrestling and throws kicks as well.
