    Inspired by @TheSpider Silva thread.
    Would 2013-2015 FW Conor reign supreme in the modern day featherweight division. If not who would stop him?

    He'd lose to Max and probably Volkanovski. He'd be in the top 5 somewhere.

    As others have pointed out Max would drown him

    If he can't take them out - and they're top guys - within a round and a half he'd lose to all of the top 5 for sure.

    He'd get smoked? Maybe he would lose, but he would be competitive against anyone

    Is prime WEC Aldo the best FW ever?

    I think Volk and Max would split wins and losses and Ortega would beat him too. Would be champion and maybe even defend

    Even Ortega would beat him.

    Barboza would tear his legs as well

    He didn't gas against Holloway when they fought, not saying that means he would beat the current version, but it proves he can last at least 3 rounds

    Good point, McGregor didn’t show any cardio issues before moving up a division. Especially pre acl injury.

    They need to take him into the Deep waters, If Conor scores big early he might bank those 1st 3 rounds. Volk and Max would need to avoid his heavy hands early and we know Conor doesn't have great work rate late.

    I really think he fucked himself up putting on so much weight, he used to have abs, now he doesn't

    Prime Conor is the best FW to ever grace MMA. Id love to see leg kicking Aldo against Mcgregoat though.

    Conor was smart to use is wrestling in this one after he tore his ACL , also Max was definitely a green horn. A guy that was injured vs a guy still up and coming , a gutsy 3 round affair
