    Everyone knows Khabib and Tony would beat the crap out of Conor.
    Unless you're a casual/Dana beliver you would say different...

    Would he be able to beat; ?
    Kevin Lee
    MJ
    Barboza
    Nate Diaz (who?)

    He'd beat Barboza relatively easily. MJ is fast and a southpaw but Conor is on a different level. Kevin Lee could be tough but he leaves a lot of openings and is chinny. Diaz will always be a tough match-up but he is capable of beating him.

    I'd pick him Conor over all of them.

    Weird situation where everyone knows he's very very good but he never fights. Like GSP

    I think he beats Lee, MJ, Barboza fight could be interesting, Diaz fight is a toss up again.

    I’d favor Khabib.
    I think he would embarrass Tony badly.
    He would knock Lee out easily.

    The only reason Nate ever won or kept it close is because he has a better chin than 95 percent of the roster.

    on a side note it is so nice that most of the McGregor obsessed posters have left sherdog.

    I don't think so, but hopefully we get to see.

    Khabib wrestle screws him and Tony's funky style gives him fits.

    I say different. So that means I'm not a casual/Dana believer?

    Conor beats all 6

    Beats Eddie
    Loses to Lee
    Beats Barboza
    Beats Gaethje
    Beats Pettis
    Beats Iaquinta

    I really think fighting Khabib first is a blessing for Conor.
    After the long lay off, Conor will be spending a lot of time defending the TD and the subsequent counters and not so much time on his stand up.
    Hands are the last thing to go in a man.
    So then when it comes to the Tony fight, Conor will be back training the stand-up again, which will likely all return to form by then. Plus he will have improved TDD.

    Your optimism is misplaced. Conor beats them all, fairly easily.

    I don't think anyone can answer this right now as he hasn't fought for almost 2 years and has only fought once at lightweight in the UFC.

    GSP took on all comers at the top of the UFC 170 division for a decade and defending the title 10 times, 11 if you include him fighting with an interim belt. Conor has never once defended a UFC title and took a long hiatus at age 28. So to compare their willingness to fight is moronic. GSP retired at age 32 due to wear and tear that included multiple severe knee injuries and some concussion syndrome concerns. He came back after a 4-year layoff for a chance at a belt in a second weight class. I can't blame him for wanting to make history and grow his legend. He might even try for a 3rd weight class belt at 155.

    Oh ya, the guy who defended the title 10 times, ya he's just like him.
