    McGregor vs Ferguson
    McGregor vs Lee

    Ferguson would embarrass him. Ferguson beats him everywhere and would do some fancy stuff (almost fooling around) while he's at it. And with Conor lacking his precious size and reach advantage, he'd be made to look foolish, with no excuses to cling onto post-defeat.

    Lee would bust him up badly. Lee is way too strong for him. Conor would be praying Lee submits him and submits him fast. Can you imagine Lee mauling Conor? Lee would force him into a Rousey-esqe retirement.

    I always knew Conor wanted to fight Khabib. Best of the bad options.
    Losing to Khabib is by far, in more ways than one, the least-damaging defeat.

    Ferguson is a way easier matchup for Conor than Khabib is..

    Yeah sure, Khabib could get caught with a punch, but Tony gets stunned all the fucking time... Khabib on the ground > anything Tony would do.

    Conor would sleep Lee, Edson nearly KOd him with one of the few kicks he threw that fight. Conor's distance control and the fact that he can fight with his hands down helps him a ton on takedown defense with a guy like kevin. The only reason I think Khabib beats Conor and Kevin doesn't is purely chin-based.

    A fighter with a questionable chin is the worst matchup for Conor?

    Ferg might beat Conor by surviving his initial onslaught and using his supreme cardio but Conor will destroy Lee in the first. Khabib is the worst matchup for Conor and he will beat everybody else too.

    I think Conor is stylistically hard match for Khabib actually.

    Same with Pettis vs. Tony IMO.

    If Edson’s spinning heel kick couldn’t put Kevin down, what makes you think Conor’s left will?

    Really? But Conors showed sub par TD defense and cardio. Khabib is a pure grappler with a solid chin and good gas tank. I'm rooting for Conor but expect him to take a beating.

    I sometimes wonder if everyone who hypes Ferg to the moon actually watch his fights. Dude gets hit A LOT!

    It's just a matter of time before his chin goes the way of Chuck Liddell.

    Conor vs. Canelo

    After all, Conor is boxing.

    "Beats him everywhere" lmao

    Conor haters are such idiots that are deprived of any hint of intelligence regarding MMA. Tony is probably Conor's easiest match-up in the top 5. Even Eddie and Dustin who Conor demolished would be tougher.

    No probably not, but untested chin + superb grappling "might be"!
