    Who would win that? I think Prime Pettis gasses Conor out, then either KO's Conor or subs him.

    Even now, I think Pettis subs Conor, Pettis has great distance managment just like Conor, and better cardio.

    Thoughts?

    Pettis is way better than Conor

    Standing or ground

    In boxing match it would be somewhat competitive

    Pettis is still very skilled, and dangerous.

    I have Conor beating everyone not named Tony, Kevin Lee, Khabib so I have to stick with that.

    Interesting fight tho.
    Barboza vs Conor would be a hard fight as well

    It's kinda true. Standing is arguable, but Pettis would fucking kill Conor on the ground.

    You're saying that because Pettis hasn't been on the ball as much, but that's because of the style match-ups, and Conor is a great match-up for Pettis.

    I'm a fan of Pettis but the fight wouldn't even get to the ground. And standing Pettis would get killed.

    Conor by TKO

    Pettis has great kicks but his boxing is nothing special. Conor would pick him apart and hurt him early.

    Conor is not that good. I agree. Who did he beat besides Holloway, Aldo, Mendes, Alvarez, Diaz, Poirier? Yes, I know he kinda embarrased all of them but that's all he could beat.

    Conor has his way with Pettis and it’s not even close. Pettis has good striking and is crafty but Conor has much more power and overall a better striking game. He’s fluid most of the time and his in and out game is great.
    My opinion of course.

    This is MMA dude, Pettis can definitely get him down, and sub him.
