    Khabib Nurmagomedov:
    Rafael Dos Anjos WW #3 UD
    Edson Barbosa LW #6 UD
    Al Iaquinta LW #9 UD

    Conor McGregor:
    Max Holloway FW Champ UD
    Dustin Poirier LW #3 TKO 1
    Chad Mendes FW #5 TKO 2
    Jose Aldo FW #2 TKO 1
    Nate Diaz LW #11 SUB 2 LOSS
    Nate Diaz LW #11 MD
    Eddie Alvarez LW #4 TKO 2

    Two things I learned from the research:
    1. Conor's run at FW is underrated on Sherdog
    2. Michael Johnson isn't ranked at Featherweight

    I actually wouldn't mind seeing MJ vs McG to be honest.

    Both south-paws, with SOLID hands.

    Conor knocking out future/former champs and contenders is one of the best run in ufc history

    Thank you for this. Conor is a great man and good father.

    Nearly all the guys on Conor's list are midgets/dwarf people while fighters say Khabib feels like a LHW.

    Conor still doesn't know what he signed up for.

    Conor got a taste of a bigger man with journeyman Diaz but Khabib is champ material, bigger and about 3x stronger.

    -Holloway was green.
    -Poirier had personal issues going on before the fight.
    -Mendes was short notice.
    -Aldo had a tough cut and was too angry to be fighting.
    -He lost to Nate both times.
    -Alvarez didn't realize what he was getting into and didn't train properly. I'm pretty sure someone slipped something in his water before the fight too.

    Khabib - 4 Finishes in Last 10 fights
    Conor - 8 Finishes in Last 10 fights

    Khabib is a classic Lay 'N Prayer. Conor at minimum will get 5 shots to KO him at the beginning of each round. I'll take Conor on those odds.

    Thanks for your effort TS but I want to know the opponent's ranking at the time of the fight.

    Also, a reference for the rankings.

    Be waiting right here.

    Can you see from your thread that Khabib is undefeated and McGregor was finished by #11?

    Counting Conor's win over Max as a top win is like counting Duffy's win over Conor as a high level win.

    Conor beat Max 5 years ago, 4 years before Max ever became champ.

    I remember when people on here were saying McGregor would be exposed by anyone in the top 5. :rolleyes:

    You're spinning the data for "current" because it looks better for Connor. Add mj and Healy to khabib

    Michael Johnson who has lost 5 of his last 6 and gets subbed at Featherweight?
