    As Roy Jones and James Toney went up in weight, their knock out power had significantly decreased, even though they both had a high KO ration in the lower weight class because of their KO power.

    Their power that would be deemed average in the HW division seemed to be more powerful against lighter weight fighters.

    Like for example; Randy Couture was not the hardest puncher as a Heavyweight, but say he fought at 185, I am sure he would had knock dudes out at that weight division.

    Conor is a power puncher as a featherweight, but as a welterweight his power has decreased by alot. This is the reason why he will struggle against Nate Diaz, especially when you consider the fact that Nate also has a pretty good chin.

    Conor trying to knock out Nate is like Roy Jones trying to knock out John Ruiz or James Toney trying to knock out Samuel Peters. It ain't going to happen.

    Eventually Conor will gassed out and Nate will win by submission or even TKO.

    The funny thing is... Nate isn't an actual WW. Certainly not an elite WW.

    I can't even imagine what a true WW would do to Conor. His punches would only be annoying. Like a little mosquito buzzing around. Sooner or later it pisses you off and you squish it.

    Good point. Imagine him trying to knock out a Tyron Woodley or Robbie Lawler.

    They would be there pointing their fingers at him while they laugh and mock him.

    Here we go again, comparing two all time great fighters to a loud mouth with no ground game or heart.
     
  8. Wait, so the "Roy Jones syndrome" is based on Roy's one and only fight at heavyweight???

    Common sense comes a long way sir. You should use it.

    Exactly, someone not named Conor McGregor.

    Too bad McGregor couldn't do that, right bud. What happened at 196?

    By the way, Thompson would beat the fucking brakes off Conor's ass both standing up and on the ground.

  15. Your argument has little to do with common sense. That's why it took you 5 paragraphs to explain it. So is the "Roy Jones syndrome" just based on how he did against Ruiz?

    Nate is a LW. And there was another boxer that talked mad trash and moved up and became irrelevant, Conor is more like that guy, does anyone remember his name?

    james toney went from 160pounds to heavyweight which doesn't have an upper limit, he basically went 100 pounds up in weight so when mcgregor fights at 265 let me know

    Yeah this is Thomsons work though. This is what happened when McGregor fought N.Diaz on 10 days notice.
