    Would you like to be escorted out, or can you leave on your own?

    Look at their resumes through 7 UFC fights and it's easy to see Conor is WAY more dominant

    Let's see them fight first then decide

    Or just bet the house on Jones either way...

    Jones left his prime when he fought Bonnar.

    Conor by sub round 1

    No Conor has no submission wins only submission losses and based on his fight with Chad his wrestling is not at even par. He is not a good striker he is a great striker and that is what has carried him this far. He is not half as well rounded as Jon Jones or Luke Rockhold number 1 and number 2 on the P4P list in my opinion. DJ is just as well rounded but I just can't get excited about the guy and have no idea why.

    I'd say there'd be more chance of witnessing the Nogueira brothers feeding a carrot to a bus than McGinger KO'ing Jon Jones.

    What "people"? "Always"? You've been on Sherdog for like 7 hours, what the hell are you talking about?

    They're different fighters TS. Both are great, but Jones is more well rounded and more proven. Conor is much more dangerous though and his striking is much better technically. Jones has never had great footwork or boxing, just to name two things that come to mind. McGregor's timing and precision also exceed Jones'. For everything relating to grappling though, Jones beats him handily.

    Jones has been around longer and defended his title many times. Some of his defenses were tougher than others and many of them were very easy for him. We'll see what McGregor can do in terms of title defenses. He has more than his work cut out for him since he's fighting in two divisions now and not just one. Even if he lost to RDA then Edgar (a former LW champ that just knocked out Mendes) is next up at Featherweight for Conor to defend his title against. His competition is only getting much stronger now that he's a champion.

    Conor used mind control there and cheated. He should've been DQ'ed.

    Pretty sure Jones would take him down, Conor would smash him with some elbows from the bottom, open a cut, get back up and KO Jones soon after. So yes, he's definitely better.
