    ... Edgar by taking a fight against the higher ranked Chad Mendes? For sure, if he took the fight against Edgar then he would have been ducking Mendes.

    Then he ducked Edgar again by taking a fight against Rafael Dos Anjos, the champion of a higher, more competitive weightclass. Surely, had he taken the fight with Edgar then he'd be ducking Dos Anjos.

    Now he's at it again by taking a fight against Nate Diaz and ducking Donald Cerrone and Khabib Nurmagomedov in the process. Of course, we all know that had he taken the fight against Cerrone or Khabib, he'd be ducking Diaz and the other.

    He's such a duck.

    Don't forget he's ducking RDA! There are claims that Conor is lucky RDA got injured. What a duck, he didn't have the balls to wait out for the title shot. Quack quack.

    They should just make McGregor run through a guantlet off the top ten FWs and LWs on one night. Speed up the process.

    Edgar won and defended the LW belt cutting pretty much zero weight.

    Mendes lost every title fight he ever had.

    In what world is Mendes better Edgar?

    Higher ranked Mendes? LOL, STFU Dummy. Mendes had no business being ranked higher than Frankie. Frankie was on a 4 fight win streak while Mendez was coming off a loss to Aldo and only a 1 fight win streak. Only dummies like you and whoever ranked Mendes above Edgar truly believed Mendes was higher ranked than Frankie.

    Oops. Fixed.

    Yeah, he's fighting Nate, not Nick.

    Proof that he's ducking Nick Diaz too.

    In dilusional Connor fan girls world. Connor fans are so stupid they actally believed Mendes was higher ranked at the time than Frankie when in fact Mendes was coming off a loss to Aldo and only a 1 fight win streak. While Frankie was on a 4 fight win streak and has proven to be Champion material.

    Exactly! That's why McGregor ducked Edgar.

    Ranking doesn't paint the whole picture. Mendes got KTFO by Edgar with a full camp. His wrestling game relies more heavily on cardio but he's all finz & featherz in the off season with no fight cardio. Conor knew this that's why he ducked Edgar.

    Conor himself said RDA is a bum version of Aldo and an easier fight. That's why he went with RDA instead of Edgar. 155 also comes with an additional bonus duck: the weight cut.

    Before that when he was scheduled to fight Cole Miller who has sick jits game at UFC Dublin 2 rumor was he pressure the UFC to pay MIller to bow out due to "injuries" and handpicked a brawler in Diego Brandao as replacement. Something similarly shady happened in January last year when Conor used his leverage to cherrypick aging German dwarf striker Dennis Siver for him to tear apart.

    Now if you go all the way back to the days of Cage Warriors FC you'll also find instances of him ducking legit competition and fighting Ivan Buchinger for the CWFC LW belt. Buchinger at the time didn't even have a proper training camp or training partners and that's why Conor picked him.

    Not sure if you're sarcastic or not TS, if you are then I disagree with you but if you're serious then I agree with you. Conor McGregor has a history of ducking better competitions. The situation is as clear as shit stuck in mud.

    McGregor ducked the whole LW division by not making his way up against guys like Michael Johnson and Beneil Dariush, who does he think he is trying to create an epic super fight with the LW champ? Surely he should have spent a year proving that he's legit to get that shot, even though we already know he is.

    And you know screw Dana and his bald head for scheduling a historic fight between McGregor and Dos Anjos, just another reason to hate the guy.
