    Michael Johnson is a better boxer.

    Look at both their records since that fight. Dustin beats Johnson in a rematch.

    You go off speculation, I go off of what actually happens.

    No you don't. MJ knocked Dustin out clean. You live in a dream world of speculation.

    Johnson just got ko'ed by a FW. Dustin just beat a UFC champion. None of that is speculation. To suggest they're the same fighters they were over 2 years ago makes you the one dreaming.

    Porier got knocked out by two FW's in Conor and MJ. He just had wars with Alvarez, a guy Conor didn't even break a sweat on. Dream on.

    Masvidal and Yan are much better boxers.

    You keep referring to fights that happened years ago. Conor is no longer the hungry fighter who starched Aldo and Alvarez. He cares more about money now than legacy. Imagine if it were Johnson in there tonight against Holloway instead of Poirier. You're telling me to dream on when you're still living in the past thinking fighters don't change.

    They change, but it's still speculation. Going by your logic, Holloway should have won tonight since his loss to Dustin was years ago and hasn't lost since 2014.

    He did but honestly let’s be clear it was a fluke. Michael Johnson is not the fighter that Dustin is. He just isn’t. In fact Michael Johnson has never even been a good fighter in the UFC. His record sucks.

    His record sucks, but that wasn't a fluke. Hall beating Moose is a fluke, but Johnson has really sharp, fast hands and it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone when he gets a knockout.
