    He still could beat Conor, so could Cowboy, and Conor could potentially beat either of them. Nothing is certain in MMA, anyone thinking otherwise is a casual or troll.

    Do you have some kind of argument to the contrary based on some sort of analysis based I'm assuming on his loss to a long rangy kick heavy striker tonight in which he took a ton of punishment but never broke or tried to stop winning the fight until the final bell?

    Is there something in this performance that leads you to believe a guy Al's same height with a Boxing based style with poor cardio who posses none of the threats Cowboy does on the ground coupled with less than spectacular cardio?

    I don't see what you're getting at here to be honest but feel free to offer an actual debate instead of a title and a gif since you felt this was a question that desperately needed to be asked.

    Ya I do and still think he would. Cowboy has a wider variety of strikes than Colin and is overall more of a man. Al would TKO Colin round 4 brutally.

    If his love life mirrors his fight life I feel sorry for Cerrone's wife, one night porn star the next premature ejaculation.

    I had Al via a beat down, thank god I hate betting because I obviously have no bloody idea. Props to Cerrone though, when he's hot he's red hot.

    Anyone Conor beat is literally an overrated bum that was a fluke or stylistic gimmie fight. And Conor losing to Khabib proves hes a bum and not even top 200 LW

    What makes you think he can't? Al actually fights.

    He still would.
    Cerrone would as well, faster.
    At this point in his career Con loses to any top 10 LW.

    Al's too tough to take out early and we all know Connor wilts under pressure

    How Cowboy beating Al changes anything?
    Care to elucidate or posting an old gif about a guy with no claim to anything right now is your great analysis?

    To me it was a toss up....until today. Fuck was i wrong. Conor would pwn him imo. I love Al and he is a warrior but either Mcgregor sends him to Narnia early (that's what would happen) or Al beats him via cardio and heart.

    Cowboy vs Conor would be interesting as hell, though.

    Lol, does it really take an "Irrational Conor hater" to look at both of there styles and come to the conclusion that a tough durable guy who has never been stopped by strikes, has phenomenal cardio, never stops coming forward even when faced with adversity while also having great Wrestling to fall back on when all else fails is a very bad match up for a guy with a left hand that if he doesn't hurt you with in the first round likely never will, poor cardio, and a tendency to wilt under pressure when faced with adversity and struggles against good Wrestlers?

    Kind of seems like the obvious conclusion to me.

    Irrational would be something like "He can't take the left hand, Conor knocks him dead in the first 2 minutes" despite Conor only having one clean KO in the UFC coming against a guy who lunged into his fist with his eyes closed and more proven finishers at LW have all failed to stop Al on the feet.

    Other than "Conor by KO" can you provide any kind of actual analysis to back up your opinion on this match up and why only an "irrational Conor hater" may think this isn't a great match up for him?
