    I'm not claiming to be a striking expert or anything, but Conor fans seem to truly get emotional and flustered for some reason whenever someone who knows shit about striking does a breakdown of Conor's technique. This just cements it that Conor fans are the most delusional in all the sport. I don't even think Anderson fans were that delusional, and Andy was as close to an invincible fighter in his prime as well ever see.

    Because it shows that Conor has very basic, rudimentary boxing skills.

    Lucky for him, MMA striking is so terribad that it's all he needs

    If rudimentary boxing is all thats needed to win 2 belts why hasn't an elite striker just come along and taken over the ufc?

    Because ufc fighters arent "terribad" strikers...they are actually quite fantastigood.

    Conor's striking is excellent for MMA, which is saying something, but not much. He's not a boxer and would have to do things very differently if he were. Don't know why anyone would get mad about it.

    But lol at Anderson being the closest to invincible we've seen. Anderson was a great sniper. He really wasn't that great a striker. Like Conor, he was ahead of most of MMA, but that isn't saying much, even more so back then. If you gave him an opening, he was great at capitalizing. It's why he outright refused to lead. He just wanted his opponent to get frustrated and leave an opening.

    McGregor's striking is the greatest in the league at the moment. Possibly in all of MMA actually.

    The way all aspects of MMA are considered and his distance management, shot selection.....combined with his attributes like a long frame and power....it's as close to perfect as you can get imo.

    the fuck are you even talking about?

    and anytime there is a striking breakdown, it's usually about how good he is.

    I think Anderson WAS great at what he did.You are right at mostly everything else except "that isnt saying much" Anderson was limited when forced to lead,but he is still one of the Sports greats. As you said hes not a boxer and would have to do things very differently if he were. That goes for everyone else too. For MMA he was one of the best strikers in the game,and that makes him a great striker. I dont see the need to impress boxing or kickboxing purists,or need to bring up "oh he'd get killed in boxing"
    Hes not a boxer. He has alot more to worry about than boxers do. Even if you take into account the takedowns and kicks,because of MMA's free ruleset,an opponent can literally do anything,that you cant account for (like chonan's win over him),and Anderson avoided losing for a very long time with what he brought to the table. He def had his flaws( who doesnt?),but his skills were so good,that he could get by.
