    For me he is.

    I don't think anyone in the history of MMA could have faired, as well as he did, against Mayweather.

    I think Rumble would've done better.

    Well Rumble would have outweighed Mayweather by three times or so.

    You said MMA history.

    But if we're talking 155ers, Nate would have done better.

    Don't think Nate would've got finished.

    I don't believe in P4P bullshit so no.

    Conor is the GOAT prize fighter in MMA based on PPV sales but in terms of actual fighting abilities he's not the best. Several LHW and HW would beat him in pure boxing, and plenty of others would beat him in an MMA fight at open weight.

    At LW and below he's definitely the best though.

    Yes. Just like Khabib is the best MMA grappler of all time, Conor is the best MMA striker (mostly boxing) of all time.

    I think the Diaz brothers are better boxers than Conor...

    Established boxers recognize their talent...

    so you do realise that diaz rocked conor on the feet with a simple boxing combination? leading to conor shooting a takedown as a way of getting out of the fight? conor was fucked after that punch, nothing mayweather threw hurt him like that. next fight he hot diaz with everything he had and still ended up under diaz getting smashed at the end of the fight

    conor has talent but all you are telling us in this thread is you cant get enough of his yummy manlet dick

    I didn't even think of that, I hope we get a chance to see if his stand up style has evolved vs khabib

    Conor would smoke every LHW/HW at boxing. It wouldn't be close!

    Rampage? Nate Diaz? Nick Diaz? Marcus Davis? Rumble? Anderson Silva? Joe Duffy? Holly Holm? Stipe? I could go on. I could go on and on and on.

    Conor is a good striker. He is not the best boxer in MMA.
