Max Holloway, Dustin Poirier, or Chad Mendes?
I want to say Max, given that he beat him with a awful knee injury.
Chad...I thought Mendes was going to destroy Conor.
imho I would go with Mendes, mostly based on Mendes resume.
the Holloway he beat isn't the Holloway of today
i want to say Mendes but he was losing for most of it
i'll say Poirier because of his performance in that fight
Dustin Poirier. That was a good legit win. Poirier is very talented and you can see his win streak.
Mendes was very short notice and he was beating Conor for most of it.
Holloway was 20 years old, he was so young and very raw and Conor never hurt him, just a decision.
Dustin Poorier. He's a top 10 LW now.
Conor annihilated him in less than a round.
It has to be Chad since none of his other wins are against high quality opponents, albeit Chad was on a very short camp and still was in a dominant position for much of the fight.
Conor never won after Aldo
2 week notice mini Mendes.
He hasnt beaten anyone since Aldo.
At the time it was Poirier.
Nowadays it would be a toss up between Holloway or lightweight Poirier.
Easily Poirier. Poirier was actually coming to fight and McGregor picked his defense apart and slept him like nothing. He didnt beat Mendes, Mendes had to finish in the first or game over.
Why who is he Holloway now?
And I think it's possible he never will. Wouldn't surprise me if he drops his next few against Nate, Aldo and Frankie, then retires.
"He didnt beat Mendes?" WTF are you blabbering on about?
Was thinking the same thing today.
Injured holloway. Short notice mendes.
Even though it wasnt an impressive performance at all from Conor, even though it was only Partial Camp Mendes, I still consider it better than the win over Drained Chinless Poirier, as in my own personal view, Mendes is one of the best fighters to never win a UFC title.
Ok he inexplicably shit the bed vs Frankie, but for a few years the guy was a serious elite fighter. His performance in the Aldo rematch, much like Gustafsson's display vs Jones, was a losing one but could still only have been produced by a genuinely great fighter.
Max (extremely green, 20yo, robbed Garcia of all ppl at that time, neither were ranked)
no one else is worth mentioning
That he didnt beat Mendes. Mendes beat himself.
