    BJ all day. Rocks him on the feet and finishes him w/RNC. Similar to what Diaz did. Except BJ takes his back right away and skips the GNP

    BJ had more tools.

    Not to mention we've seen him actually hurt WW's with his power. Haven't seen that from Conor yet

    This would be a horrible matchup for Conor.

    BJ by RNC in round 2, maybe round 1.

    It seems weird to say but I think BJ actually would take this pretty easily. He had the chin to outlast Conor, he'd eventually tire him out and get it to the ground.

    BJ takes it...

    Conor won't KO him and BJ will eventually win due to superior grappling.

    I guess MMA hasn't evolved much after all, since the champ from 6 years ago most likely beats the champ from today.

    Or maybe Conor just isn't that great a fighter and is only LW champion because he was given an undeserved title shot and has been protected from unfavorable matchups. Also he hasn't ever defended yet.

    The true champ Tony Ferguson beats prime BJ easily. So does Khabib.

    The funny thing is. I'm a huge BJ fan, he's my favorite fighter. When he was tearing through everyone, back in '07-'09, I always thought Nate would be a bad matchup for him. Just a random thought.

    BJ IMO, when his cardio was in line BJ was a monster.

    The BJ that fought, Sherk, Stevenson, Florian & Sanchez is the best Lightweight ever imo.


    (And I Never really liked BJ)

    Don't know who to pick, but I have to say that there is a huge disparity in opponents.

    The BJ that people seem to deify beat the likes of Sanchez, Roid Shark, Kenflo, and Joe Stevenson. Conor beat the likes of Aldo, Alvarez, Mendes, Poirier, and Nate Diaz.

    Out of curiosity, how did you score the first BJ vs Frankie fight?

    Penn by outclassing Conor. BJ has way more tools than some one like Diaz

    Bj is not gonna run in chin first.

    He knows how to work off his jab.

    His take-downs are great for a non-wrestler.

    and his BJJ was top notch.


    BJ via 2-3rd tko or sub (most likely sub as conor would give it up).,

    Conor has exactly one win at LW and is 1-1 at WW.

    BJ all day
