    ... MacGregor vs Wonderboy?

    I know it sounds crazy but with him challenging Woodley and all its interesting to think of him matched up at WW. I feel like Woodley is so strong and would push him against the cage. But wonderboy would be a really fun one.

    What does sherdog think about this??

    Wonderboy's tiny little neck couldn't keep his head on his shoulders against Conor.

    Could potentially be quite a boring fight, both waiting on each other.

    I would think this but wouldnt his height make his head a hard target to hit? I feel like this was an issue in Diaz Conor1 but not #2 for some reason. Guess he found his Riddum

    Conor pressures fighters into making mistakes, usually. He comes forward and sets traps in order to counter. I think someone would be slept, most likely Conor due to size/reach/kicking disadvantage.

    I think Conor gets destroyed by Woodley and Wonderboy. At some point his preperation is just not gonna help him stop a takedown by woodley nor be able to absorb his powerful leg kick on his lead leg,and once hes on his back Woodley is gonna give him the business. Wonderboy is gonna use Conor's own game against him.

    Woodley via wrestling or showing Conor that WW has no shortage of powerful punchers.
    Wonderboy via beating Conor at his own game, as HHJ said.

    I think he'd be more conservative against someone with the skillset of Wonderboy.

    You may be right, we've never seen Conor against someone he believes is equal or superior to him as a striker.

    I think Woodley would hit like a Mack truck compared to Conor. Wonderboy would eat Conor's shots and fire back his own.

    Well you can debate Aldo's striking is just as good, but... 13 seconds didn't prove any of that.

    Not that much in it according to a punching power test they did in New York.

    Hasn't seen that. Pretty cool. But... how accurately was it measured and even how? According to espn sports science... Jon Jones elbows are faster than helicopter blades.

    Punch meters are notoriously (pun intended) inaccurate.Even professional ones are only slightly better than this

    (which probably showed this gal near the top of the meter)

    I mean, if you think Karolina punches at 73% of Conor's power.... I dont know what to tell you.
