    Why?

    He's not fighting welterweights.

    Well according to Dana, this was a LW match where they agreed to fight at 170. So he should be unranked.

    Unranked.

    I mean, Geoff Neal is ranked at #15 with a 5-0 WW record.

    Really? Lawler has aged greatly and him and Cerrone were like carbon copies of each other in their fight. IMO, Lawler should not even be top 15 atp, is in the Mike Perry range TBH. Great fighter, one of my favorites, but he's ancient and has lost it. I see a guy like Geoff Neal actually beating almost everyone in the top 10 except for the elite wrestlers like Colby and Usman: home by has lethal hands, incredible athleticism and speed for days. There way he dispatched Perry, who never has got finished by strikes and is a very fast starter was jaw dropping.

    Lawler’s definitely declined some, and/or the sport has caught up and passed him by. But I think Cerrone has declined more in the 3 years since he and Robbie fought, I would’ve liked to see Conor fight that version of Cerrone. Maybe I’m wrong, but I just don’t think much of Conor at welterweight. He’s a huge featherweight, a normal sized lightweight, and an undersized welterweight. He’ll o ok fighting other lightweights at 170, but I don’t think he’ll do well at all against real welterweights. And yeah, I think Neal would kill Conor as well.

    Question is could he beat WW's at regional competitions ?

    He would have negative score there.

    Pretty hard to do since his two WW fights were against guys who spent the majority of their careers at 155. And neither was a credible WW wrestler.
