    Just because he got destroyed by Conor doesn’t mean Cowboy is not an excellent fighter. Discuss

    Good fighter but not a great one. He's failed every time when it counted unfortunately.

    Cowboy is a stud, he'll win his next fight.

    Cowboy's not an excellent or elite fighter at this point. He is a decent gatekeeper who is past his prime.

    Cerrone has 1 solid top 15 win in the last 4 years (Iaquinta), his rank as #5 in LW is extremely inflated and almost as much of a joke as Conor's rank as #3.

    The only reason he's still #5 is to make Conor's win look better. Not hating on either guys, just stating facts.

    Was a good fighter, time will tell what he is now but it's not looking hopeful. Regardless, his best days are behind him.

    How has he not fought Poirier through the years and WEC. Wouldn't advise it now but would have been fun 2-3 years ago

    There's a huge difference between good and excellent, just FYI.

    He was a good fighter, about 11 fights ago.

    Now he's a glass jawed stiff. People age. Things change. This is the circle of life.

    Was an excellent fighter. He didn’t just get destroyed by Conor. There is a list of people that have beating and stopped Cowboy recently. He’s not the same fighter was even 2 years ago. Cowboys head was probably still ringing for the Justin fight only 4 months ago.

    Poirier's move to LW coincided with Cerrones move to WW. as crazy as it is Donald was a WW for about 3 years

    I guess he dropped to 145 in the time Cerrone was at eye level in LW rankings . Another good one we missed out on

    I think he got star struck "holy shit this is McGregor" a pro at his level shouldn't be getting destroyed by shoulder strikes but it's an impressive win and Conor beat a legit guy.

    I think he's got about a year left a good performances against the raging Al's and Trinaldo's but if he fights top 8 and up he loses handily.

    Give him the loser of Lee vs Olivera next.
