    I know Diaz beat Lawler a while ago, but that ring rust can't be good for Nick... Lawler may take it.
    Also Anderson was dropped by Weidman and took a year off.

    Why does this thread happen every week?

    I heard Ronda dropped Tyson in a sparring match with a body shot.

    He has very little footwork and head movement, he just plods straight forward and eats shots to give shots. He does string together some nice combos however but as far as traditional boxing is concerned, no.

    Fraid not. Conor has some of the best boxing in the UFC, for sure his division. Don't let the hate blind you. Frankie's is solid, no disrespect. McGregor's is some of the best in the sport.

    He isn't. McGregor and Aldo have the best boxing in the division. I'm a big fan of Frankie and if you said wrestling then I'd agree, him and Mendes. But not when it comes to boxing, though his boxing is pretty good.
