    UFC's official rankings:
    1. Tyron Woodley
    2. Colby Covington
    3. Darren Till
    4. Rafael Dos Anjos
    5. Stephen Thompson
    6. Robbie Lawler
    7. Kamaru Usman
    8. Demian Maia
    9. Neil Magny
    10. Jorge Masvidal

    I personally think he loses to everyone on this list. It's likely that the majority of them not only beat him, but finish him.

    I also believe that most of the fighters in the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix bracket would beat him.

    What say you?
     
  2. He gets KOd by most of them imo.

    So what you're saying is that he loses to all of the aforementioned fighters? Or is it that he wouldn't fight them at all?

    Haha that is true. Nate is a Lightweight as most educated fans know, and did NOT have 30lbs of muscle on poor Conor by fight night.

    Fights he'd lose:

    1. Tyron Woodley ==> Gets smashed/KTFO
    2. Colby Covington ==> Gets Grinded/Wrestlef*****
    3. Darren Till ==> Gets stomped, size difference is big
    5. Stephen Thompson ==> Gets point striked at range, maybe finished
    7. Kamaru Usman ==> Gets extremely wrestlef*****
    8. Demian Maia ==> Sub by whatever Demian wants
    9. Neil Magny ==> outgrappled, outsized

    Fights he can win :

    4. Rafael Dos Anjos ==> 50/50, his style could give RDA problems
    6. Robbie Lawler ==> he can win, i'd say 50/50, conor's counters vs robbie's toughness
    10. Jorge Masvidal ==> probably his easiest matchup in the top 10, 60/40 in Conor's favor

    "How would Mini-Mouse match up against the top 10 at MW?"

    I can't wait for Conor to make easy work of Khabib and drive these people back into their troll caves

    You are the guy that said Conor would KO Woodley and beat Till easily at Welterweight. This is your chance to elbaorate and prove me wrong.

    In before wasteland

    Btw,

    Actually breaking down fights objectively skill for skill, current patient energy efficient Conor is a terrible match up for Woodley .

    Most people just don't know what they are watching (which is why Conor is so under rated in the first place)

    Woodley has a natural tendency to back himself to the fence.

    He wants opponents to aggressively step forward into takedowns or overhands.

    But most are too smart to fall for such low level bait.

    -Rory simply controlled the center, never over stepped or over extended, and pot shotted the shit out of Woodley along side the fence

    - Marquardt went all the way In to pin Woodley against the fence, SMOOTHER, and dirty box (including elbows and knees)

    Woodley has already been massively exposed on two fronts

    Now when Wonderboy would press Woodley against the fence, the mental pressure of being closed in against the fence, did cause Woodley to bumrush forward off the fence...

    However Wonderboy is not a good boxer, doesnt counter well in boxing exchanges, and just backs up in a straight line giving ground (instead of planting and countering or stepping forward himself and smoothering the bumrush)

    WB's karate backpedaling just allowed Woodley to chase with his overhands, build forward momentum with his bumrush, and force boxing exchanges to catch Wonderboy in

    Every time Woodley caught Wonderboy was when Woodley said fuck it and bumrushed forward off the fence

    I am sure anyone can put 2 and 2 together here

    This is the reason why Conor McGregor is the worst match up possible for Woodley

    Conor keeps opponents pinned to the fence, doesnt over extend, doesnt step in, continues to potshot/draw out etc - and the mental pressure he puts on, causes opponents to try to explode out of it, except where Conor is the best boxer in MMA and is already ready to meet the opponents explosion with a devastating counter

    Conor would literallly "Aldo" Woodley.

    The unusual over aggressive injuried short notice Conor who fought Mendes would have def been more at risk of stepping into Woodley's takedowns and losing the fight bad

    However today's Conor would command the center and beat the shit out of Woodley alongside the fence.

    Hop back/step back from any takedown attempts. Utilise his neck frames to shut down any shoots/clinches.

    Draw out the right to counter.

    It would be a clinic. Conor would keep Woodley pinned - out point and counter everything

    Woodley would literally be DROWNED alive on live TV by Conor

    "Woodley is nothing but a short stocky wrestler with an overhand"

    Conor eats alive the orthodox wrestler/boxer style for breakfast twice every morning
