    Ranking comes out tomorrow, but I'm interested in seeing where you would rank him at welterweight?

    I don't even rank him. He is not a WW. He is a LW who fought two LWs at WW for some reason

    Cowboy wasn't ranked in the top 15 so neither should Conor.

    I wonder if he'll be ranked at Welterweight and if so, which spot. I don't know but they might put him ahead of Diaz and/or Pettis.

    Well he is. Just look how he beat Cerrone at 170. Guy who had razor close fight with Robbie Lawler and finished many good WW's. You are huge moron if you deny his skills just because you hate him.

    I looked up the WW rankigns and feel like they're way outta whack I wanted to put him at 8 but I wouldn't feel right putting him above Robbie Lawler.

    8th seems about right, give him big recognition but still a little respect for those in the division. Makes it legit to make many matchups but also keeps the top division respected.

    It’s not so much his skill set as it is he hasn’t beaten any WW top 15 fighters but for whatever reason they have Nate at number 8 now so I guess you could put Conor in the top 10 as well. To think all it took was that punch Pettis landed on wonderboy and all of the sudden Nate and Conor are in the top 10 at WW.

    He could win a few matches but bottom top 10 if he actually fought some WWs.

    are all better so not top 10 unless u dont believe in Neal

    he could beat guys like Luque and Magny for sure maybe Jingliang too.

    His best win is still Nate who is 4-4 at welterweight and only top win is against a LW in Pettis who got a massive upset KO against Wonderboy in a fight he was getting tuned up in. Nate has gotten ragdolled, manhandled and beaten to a pulp by the real welters hes fought

    Conor looked great. Which was his role.

    Martial ranking? I think the posters have it right.<{anton}>
