    All these guys in the top of the MMA community and news recently. 3/4 guys from the main and co-main of the last UFC. Conor beat them all. Hasn't fought for 2 years and he's still on top of the game.

    He Has an incredible resume. One people desperately attempt to downplay but it is what it is. His resume is far better than the undefeated champion he is facing. Simply put better level of competition defeated.

    Come on, everyone knows the Holloway that he fougth was not even remotely close to the Holloway of today.

    Connor doesn't need any fluff on his resume - his title wins speak for themselves. Masterful performances.

    Nate is no journeyman.. He is vastly underrated. You know just because you have never been a champion doesn’t mean you suck.

    If he beats Khabib, Conor will have a fantastic resume.

    You kind of have to wait to see how things play out because as you said he hasn't fought in two years. Distractions, short camp, media obligations, it takes a lot of energy to be an Instagram model.

    We will see if he is still on top of the game. He may come out and say the same rehearsed lines, look.a step off and rusty, then get taken down and mushed into paste by Bibs.

    No denying conor is good. He has a very good resume. I think holloway has a very good chance of beating him in a rm though assuming he isn't messed up perm from what happened to him recently.

    he beat nobodys but halloway which was green, dustin and eddie have glass jaws nate would of been him twice if he had any fight iq or gameplan aldo his way past his prime

    he hasnt faced any of the top elite guys at 45 or 55 even kabib is overrated has a padded record of beating nobodys stop believing what the ufc is pushing

    we arent going to see him face unfavorable match ups b/c the ufc aint gonna let it happen what about lee, vick, tony, pettis woodley, lawyer, cowboy ect.

    I agree and Conor is still in his prime. He looks like he's been training well during his time away from the sport. And he really only took a year off, which isn't much.

    Everyone said Nate would murder Conor in the rematch at 170, having even more time to prepare -- he didn't. Everyone said that Alvarez would destroy Conor, and he didn't.

    Conor's TDD is very underrated and Khabib is susceptible to getting rocked. Michael Johnson hurt him, and MJ isn't half the striker that Conor is. If Conor connects with Khabib, it's over.

    Conor beat Holloway and Poirier before their prime.

    Alvarez is overrated.

    Nate Diaz is underrated you say?

    So would you admit he’s largely an underachiever?

    In 20 years when Hollow's son has 15 title defenses in the ufc, conor fans will post, " But conor beat his dad, therefore conor is the best."
