I was blinded by the hype.
Yes he would.
Whether or not people want to act like it, Conor would be giving up a lot of size to Lawler. Robbie also has some powerful hands. Conor is not going to seem as powerful against larger fighters, it's just a physical disadvantage that's hard to overcome. I wouldn't say he has no chance against Robbie, but it's not going to favor him greatly. If he has the balls to step up straight to the champ at WW and they will make it, more power to him and I have a lot of respect for him. But I don't think it's a horribly winnable affair for Conor.
You forget the fact that when Conor is at 170 LBS he will also have a lot more power. Plus his accuracy alone is scary. I believe that he would also be much faster than Lawler.
Lawler also gets hit a lot more than Conor so that is another factor why i think that Conor would dominate
What Robbie brings is stamina and toughness. I love Conor but he's much lighter, it's hard to picture.
He would absolutely moidahlize him!
As long as they can't prove it haters will always say somebody would "ABSOLUTELY DESTROY" McGregor.
Lawlers chin is on its way out, he's been rocked in both his last fights, I'm not saying McGregor would beat him but it is definitely not impossible.
No. Just, no. Take his peen from your butt, and you might be able to think a little more clearly.
He has 20lb on him. It would be a very tough fight for Conor.
I think these gentlemen plus many many more would disagree with you.
His best shot at welterweight gold is against Lawler. If judges could score a fight, this would be a fantasy match up, not a distinct possibility.
I think people are drastically overestimating the power in Conor's hands. There is plenty for the lighter weight divisions, but he's primarily a precision striker that scores TKOs with volume. He's not the one punch KO artist that he's billed as currently. He does have excellent ability when countering to produce powerful shots due to his accuracy.
Robbie is a fighter!!! with a no quit attitude and relentless attack he would end Connor's career.
Why does everybody think it will take a huge power shot to beat Lawler? Diaz KO'd him with a fucking jab
Nick Diaz would kill Conor.
Wow, another Conor thread.
I didn't read a word except the title but I guess you're going into some in depth analysis on why a guy who has two top 10 wins at FW is now a WW title contender.
Stfu for fuck sakes.
