    This guy is a different breed



    Look at his grin here, unflappable, unfazeable, motionless in confidence



    Gets mounted, pounded on, doesn't care, still gets Lee angry after he should've been happy he won a round



    Round 3 and he spots Lee from his corner, sees he's tired, Mayweather style (Berto mentioned how observant Mayweather is from his corner)



    And he gives Lee the message, you're in his house, McGregor will be seeing the same thing



    First submission loss of Lee's career, Tony is versatile and a finisher in all areas



    How can McGregor compete with this????



    The last time McGregor fought someone as crazy as Ferg, we know how it ended, but Ferguson isnt a Diaz, leg kicks arent going to turn him into a zombie in slow motion, he's coming for that neck



    Get ready, McNuggets. #TeamElCucuy

    He doesn't have the chin that Nate has though. The shots that Nate ate in round 1 of fight 1 would have smoked most fighters IMO

    Nate = been KO'd

    McGregor = never KO'd anyone bigger than himself

    Tony is like a cocaine version of Nate but more well rounded and with a better fight IQ. Conor will have his hands full if he does not duck.

    Nate is a throwback fighter, two really great tools and great physical traits, but nothing to tie it altogether.

    Tony is MMA 2.0. Nothing he does is normal, everything fits with everything else, and a solution for every problem. He's a different kind of fighter.

    Tony has been wobbled. Nate just has shit defense. I don't mean to knock Tony, just how I see it. Tony definitely is more dangerous, powerful strikes and slick subs. Nate is just a tough bastard that never gives up and never gets tired.

    Except TS forgot McGregor fucked with Diaz the second time and came out on top. Like champions do.

    That's great, but Nate has never consistently beat top Lightweights because the avenues to victory against him have been obvious and exploitable.

    McGregor gets credit for coming back after being embarrassed and destroyed, but that's it. As an actual opponent he only gets that much credit for Diaz because he clearly struggled so much in doing it.

    Benson Henderson did what he wanted to Nate for 25 mins without getting out of 2nd gear and no one cares. McGregor is on life-support for half the fight and gets hailed as a king.

    Conor hit him flush about 40 times and he never went out. And Eddie gets dropped in just about every fight that he's in

    He got badly hurt in the Vannata's fight, but Tony got never KOed in his career so actually we cannot judge Tony's chin.
    McG seems to have an unknown power in his punches inside the octagon, but still i can't believe he can KO Tony.

    I think Tony's chin is a little overrated. He has amazing recovery and heart coupled with a good chin, which combine to make him so tough to finish, but he's been rocked/dropped pretty often.
