    Can’t recall him getting outstruck except in the Khabib fight where he was terrified of the takedown.

    I think for someone who only relies on his striking, he may have been the best in MMA. Who is better?

    Overall striking is another argument

    But definitely the best boxing

    By a long shot, no.
    Silva was way better.
    He was a dangerous guy that bullied smaller fighters then moved up and couldn't do it anymore.
    Yes, he did beat Eddie, but he has fallen..... FAST (1-3 - 1NC in his past 5).
    So I disagree he is the best striker in MMA or even in the UFC.

    Yes, but Diaz landed 2 more strikes, so he outstruck McGregor. Conor did land the more damaging shots of course, I'm not arguing that.

    Conor V Anderson P4P prime match up would be amazing. I wouldn't want to choose between the two.

    He's up there. It's really hard to say though.

    Poor hungry Conor was a savage, after Floyd he's been unmotivated and looks sloppy.

    No, that probably goes to Anderson Silva. McGregor is up there pretty high though.

    It wasn't even "pretty clear" to the judges.

    Don't think there is such a thing as best.

    Too many stuff to take into consideration like height, weight, limb length, technique, speed, power...

    But I think we can safely say that Conor is up there with the best of them.
