    Yeah next thing you know Dana will be saying Jouban was 300 lbs and Perry fought with a torn ACL.

    lol Mcgregor is obviously a way better fighter than 1-dimensional, 5 strikes a round Perry.

    Diaz is a perennial top 10 who fought Benson for the world title. By definition he's not a journeyman.

    Gimmie fights against guys like Brandao and Siver were journeyman.

    I can tell you are new to mma and only here because of mcgregor. Since that is the first comparison that came to your head.

    There are other fighters besides mcgregor.

    Yea but Jouban just won and didn't lose to a journey man. Perry will never evolve.

    Conor has never been outclassed or been matched in the stand up which is the most important part of fighting .

    He lost early in career by submission but has trained his ass if on ground game and fixed those issues .

    Only person to give him any trouble was Diaz and Diaz had 20 pounds on him , even with that extra weight and reach Diaz was no match until Conor started to has .

    Imagine Jouban had 20 pounds on Platinum tonight how that would have went

    Nate only lost to elite fighters

    Ranked #5 in the world

    Alan's never been ranked in top 10

    I remember, but Perry probably doesn't remember his name.

    Why don't you use those rankings when you talk about the Mcgregor/Diaz fights? Surely Diaz was top 5 then...
