    I know oh those leg kicks how ever will Conor cope. How about Conor's long reaching straights? Anytime they land, ANYWHERE, his opponent loses 3 months off their life. Conor has that Wladimir Klitschko Feather Weight power that will buckle every single man given a round or two. How many haymaker straight will Aldo eat as he is standing there blocking, waiting to counter? You better believe Aldo's face is gonna look like someone's first period after 5 minutes of the fight, if he lasts.

    In this instance, self belief meets skill in a perfect storm of lighter weight class GOAT.

    As Aldo said in the post-event interview...

    "Is Normal."

    Honestly I think he'd beat even prime Silva at openweight.

    If we talking punching power, Mendes hits harder

    Howcome Guillard put Siver away like nothing, but McGregor couldn't? McGregor looked awesome yesterday, but I was surprised with how many punches Siver was able to take.

    He ate some good counter left hooks from Siver and an overhand or two. Took them like a baus.

    Don't ever compare Conor to Klitschko again.

    Mendes was using full power and couldn't KO Aldo. Conor KOs people with straight lefts that looks like he's not even putting 50% into it.

    I agree.
    But I think Jon Jones would be a really tough test for him.

    Because it's easier to fight smaller men.

    And lol at Aldo not being able to take big punches.

    I think Conor has far better striking and better output than Mendes. Mendes tagged him a lot, but only w/ really clean shots a couple times. I think Conor can tag him a lot more with more powerful shots. I don't think Aldo can win in a stand-up battle.

    And it looks real easy for him too judging from his weigh-in look...

    Man, do you follow mma? That's the most absurd thing I've ever heard.
