    Not sure about power, but speed, sure. Aldo is much faster and more explosive than Conor everywhere.

    They can use any criteria they want to try and diminish Conor, but the guy is the best finisher in the division by a country mile.

    Yup - Mendes has a seriously achy back side. I guess getting KOd can do that to ya

    He is definitely faster, not sure about power, but Aldo also almost finished Chad in round 1 so he has got power for sure.

    When you're here, I ask questions, YOU answer them
    What is it, like 4 criticisms for every 1 praise about a guy who knocked him out?

    It's a more comical ratio than the one that represents his golem physique.

    I'm not a huge Connor fan, but that is some bullshit right there.

    IMO, on pure attributes, Connor is likely a bit more powerful, but slightly slower than Aldo. This is going to be what a championship fight is supposed to be.

    He said power and speed in his kicks.

    Conor is obviously a harder puncher.

    Also, why would Mendes be butthurt about Conor, when he lost to both guys.

    That KO from Aldo in the 1st fight was waaay more brutal and humiliating than the one from Conor.

    I think the speed is obvious. Power is more arguable.

    Aldo was knocking Mendes all over the place.


    McGregor has filthy accuracy though and accuracy kills.

    Yeah, but he can always say it was an off night, and he came back for a competitive fight. Connor really humiliated him and gave him no respect in the Octagon. Connor walked around with his hands down taunting him the whole time (not to mention a lot of smack talk around the fight).

    I think the KO was pretty much not if but when against Connor, while not necessarily so with Aldo.

    Mendes looked like he was holding back tears when asked about Conor on UFC Tonight.

    I think Aldo might in fact have more power than Conor. But Conor is more accurate, especially with his straight punches. That's way he KOs more people lately. (And lesser competition)

    Aldo is the far more quicker, more explosive, and had a ton better natrual reflexes.

    Conor gets tagged with his head straight up, all the time. Watch Aldo/Hominick for how great his head movement is.

    How is Aldo more powerful when he didn't knock out Mendes 2.0?
    Conor KO'D Chad 2.0 in 2 rounds.
