    You cannot put in the all time greatest list a guy who got humiliated by Nate Diaz the 1st time and almost tkoed the second, winning a very lame UD, showing absolutly none bit of superiority.

    I mean, if you are a solid fighter, its your obligation to obliterate Nate like did Rory, RDA or Thomson.

    Conor is a good fighter, have really good genius moments, but he proved that he's not well rounded, can't handle pressure, has poor gas tank, hasn't fought some of the very great fighters of our generation besides Aldo and Eddie, perhaps 2 weeks notice Mendes.

    Yeah he won two belts, but if you receive easy fights (Nate's fights should have been easy) and a undeserved title shot, eventually you will win.

    C'mon, a guy struggles twice against a mid one dimensional who can't throw a single low kick fighter and its put as an all time great?

    Its a offense to the true fans of MMA who watched true warriors over the curse of the years.

    You do know fighters evolve? Nates last loss was 4 years ago, he came back looking shredded and tooled MJ on the feet. For the reference in size he couldnt even make weight for RDA he came in over 160lb lol.

    Hes a black belt tied 3rd with maia for the most subs in the UFC. Guys with good cardio, wrestling, and sub defense are his kryptonite, all Conors weak areas. How Nate beat Conor is literally the diaz bro method. Take shots, keep pressuring forward, opponent slows down, proceed to drown them in volume, then either get a tko or the opponent tries to shoot and gets subbed.

    Its not like Nate has a padded record for subs either, he subbed fucking Jim Miller. Tooled Cerrone and MJ on the feet. Hes underrated to be honest.

    Personally I have a very tough time rating Conor historically. Some big wins but the level of activity, not once defending a title. He could be top ten or may not even crack the top 30 as TS suggests. Legit arguments for both.

    Give Conor a few more fights before we talk about top-30. Did A. Silva become a top-30 when he defeated Franklin? Luther?

    Losing to Nate is not worst than losing to Serra, Chonan, USADA etc.

    It's crazy that's Conor McGregor has only fought Nate Diaz in the UFC.

    ANDERSON, FEDOR, GSP, SHOGUN, WANDERLEI, HUGHES, ROYCE, GSP, BJ PENN, CHUCK, COUTURE, ORTIZ, ALDO, FABER, CRUZ, DEMETRIUS JOHNSON, JDS, CORMIER, JON JONES, SAKURABA, CROCOP, WERDUM, FRANKLIN, BIG NOG, DAN HENDERSON, TAKANORI GOMI (debatable), LYOTO MACHIDA (debatable), FRANKIE, VITOR BELFORT, RONDA ROUSEY, CRIS CYBORG
    (sorry for capslock)

    Well, in how many legendary fights Conor have been envolved? 1? 2?
    He's good in marketing, and an amazing fighter, but when you look at the history of mma and see in how many legendary and unforgetabble fights those guys were involved, its hard to Put conor in the greatest fighters discussion; Who has he beat besides Aldo and Eddie?
    18 year old Max? 2 week notice Mendes?

    the UFC bent over backwards for him... Hard to rate him at all when he had special treatment.

    Royce, Saku, Faber, Gomi, Franklin, Ronda, Cyborg, Crocop and Wand aren’t greater than Conor.

    This is an embarrassing attempt. Conor has accomplished far more at this stage of his career than those fighters in their whole careers
