    Who will be the first to beat him?

    Not who has the best chance, not asking when it will happen or even how it will happen.

    But if you had to throw $10 on it, who do you think is the first man to get a UFC victory over him?

    Diaz this weekend? RDA at 200, or whenever they face off? Edgar if they ever compete for the FW title?

    I know people like to make bold claims on here, so here's your chance, take a guess and you can quote your prediction if it ever comes in...

    Thoughts?

    I think Kevin Randleman is the only person to beat him.

    Lol, this is slightly different... although it's obvious I hate Conor lol.

    The reason why I posted this was more that there are many names that people think can beat him, but those match-ups are unlikely e.g. Pettis, Ferguson, Woodley, MacDonald - at this stage those are just unlikely.

    This post is more around taking an informed guess at who'll be the "first" - nice of you to spot my hate though haha...

    I wish he would just fight edgar at FW. I don't think he's ever going back down to FW. He's done at FW the only ones to beat him are at LW or WW (if he chooses to go there after this fight).

    I always said the only man to beat him at 145 or 155 is Tony Ferguson, and I won't change my mind on that.
     
  9. Cool thread idea. I think the RDA thing was fishy and there wont be that matchup for a bit. Ill go on a limb and say they give Conor someone like Rashid Magamedov, in order to bug Khabib, and that Rashid wont care about the hype and will take a decision.

    Then we will all overrate him on here.

    Love watching Furg go to work on guys but watch his fight vs Barboza.

    Edson tags him clean with almost everything, even after being put on wobbly legs from an illigal kick he was lighting Furg up alot.

    Somebody with awkward timing, just as fast if not faster than Edson and much better boxing it could be a long night for Furg.

    Yup he was getting tagged too many times for my liking in that fight, but he is very crafty with his submissions and he can pull them off lightning fast, he also has a really good chin, people don't mention this about him but Ferguson has a insane chin.

    if Conor beat him I wouldn't be shocked, but out of all the guys at 145 and 155 I think its Ferguson who is the hardest challenge. I think he is gonna choke out Khabib too.

    Same here. I like Tony's fun, aggressive style. Lousy defense though. I think that will always cost him. Chins don't holdup forever. Of course Conor gets tagged a bit too so...

    Yeah I forgot Furg had that ridiculous chin, and always pressing forward.

    I see Khabib beating him though. Why do you pick Furg?
