    Conor would keep him at the end of his punches. Not sure how good Vannata's chin is, but he would probably be finished.

    Being honest, we don't know enough about Vannata yet

    I think this will be the fight to make in a year or two, but right now his head is a little too stationary when he thinks he's out of range for me. Conor KOs him if they fight today

    If they fight in a year or a year and a half? Who knows? Vannata was also a D-1 wrestler, he probably has the wrestling advantage here

    Lando "Calrissian" Vannata would fuck Conor McGregor up worse than the Death Star did Alderaan.

    How awesome would it be to see an orthodox fighter with a noticeably shorter reach, who likes to rush in & bang, against Conor?
    Not that awesome. I already know how that story ends.

    Not to mention his lack of experience in the UFC, let alone a massive headline fight.

    He's good, but he doesn't match up well against Conor.
    He'd get pieced up.

    Vanatta is a bit too green at this point. Give him a year or two.

    Lando is the kind of fighter who can make a Ryan Hall fight interesting

    Lando is fun but he'd he sleeping 30 seconds in so it wouldn't be entertaining.

    Lando did well on short notice against Cucuy but he was way too hittable and if that happened against Conor then Vannata is going to sleep.

    Lando is still somewhat unknown.

    Looked like a monster on short notice against a potential champion in Tony. Won his next fight with a KO of the Year performance. We have to see him against other elites to know where he stands

    He's getting paid now. Full time Sherdog mod. Moving the fuck up in life, pretty soon he's gonna be Studio Apartment Infant.

    "We" may not know but those at Wink-Jack do. There was that thread as soon as the fight was announced and an inside source said 'Lando would shock sherdog'....everyone clowned on TS and then had to eat crow. Rumor is Lando is the best talent WJ has seen since JBJ. And, in that time, they have produced champion. Better than Cowboy, Condit, Holly, Dodson etc...

    The Conor fight is where the future is, if Conor is around. Lando is clearly a much more skilled mover as he was studying with Ido much longer and has incorporated movement training into his game while Conor may be flowy but not on the level Lando is. Conor would be the favorite but it would be incredible. Conor has that atomic left hand but Lando can finish the fight anywhere and is deadly in all limbs. Best yet, his mindset for growth is amazing; that kick he threw, he just learned that a few years ago. He had no KO power just a few years ago but now has the death touch in his right hand.

    IMO, it is the best fight the UFC could make. Khabib Conor will be awesome but it will be a quick KO or a ragdolling. I could see Conor Lando being a war, esp with Lando's chin and give no fucks attitude, he def would not be rattled at all, like every other opponent has been since Nate and Max.
     
  20. Is this thread serious? Conor has absolutely no chance.
