    Going Up 2 weight classes to fight a 6'1 190 lbs on fight night nate diaz. Then going up 1 weight class and fighting the LW champion who happened to be a wrestler build like a tank that people thought will throw conor around with ease. Now he goes in a totally different sport that he has never fought before to fight the GOAT boxer.

    Say what you want about conor, but the guy has balls of steel.

    Nope. Never. In human history. Conor moving up to fight someone taller and heavier than him is just about the bravest thing anyone has ever done.

    Maybe a Greek God. Some shertards already started a new religion. Get off those nuts, dangling on them isnt cool anymore.

    Japan is weird tho - If you get ur ass kicked, it is all cool and the people/fans wont bag on you. Japanese dont care about records and that is why they put on bouts like Grandma vs Gabbi Garcia. Conor competed under different conditions where if he were to fail, he would be Rousey 2.0; his failure would result in shame, internet memes and not some collective nationalistic Bushido hard on.

    The original "punk" MinowaMAN, BJ, any Japanese pro wrestler fighting the Ax Murderer in his prime.

    Well I don't think Conor really moved up 2 classes, maybe one. Nate might be that big, not sure though. He beat Eddie, wasn't the best guy there, yes a champ, but he did fight some decent guys there.I don't know what Eddie cuts from, I heard 180. I'm sure Conor was big too. I'm not a fan of Conor, but yes he won 2 titles. That's good and all, but he ain't goin back to 145, so defend at LW or move up. But the May match, shouldn't happen. Good on him if it does and he gets $$$$$$
