How is it different beating Conor than it is beating Pettis? Both are excellent strikers and you can argue that Pettis is a superior grappler and at least an on par striker. When Pettis is pressured from bell to bell and can't get off any shots, he loses like he did to Guida, RDA and Alvarez. Never saw his fight with Palaszewski so I can't comment on that one. I'm a fan of Conor so don't get it twisted but I'm just wondering how Conor wins the fight besides a Hail Mary clip to RDA's chin?
