    Range And distance control.are debatable and I'm OK with giving that to Conor but in no world does conor have better TDD than Edson and khabib literally walked thru everything edson thru at him and took him down at will.
    My assessment is that khabib can walk thru conors power and Conors range control will be completely useless and will be taken down at will just like edson.

    I love conor but I think he's getting ragdolled and pounded on for as many rounds as it lasts.

    McGregor hits much harder than Barboza and so taking the walking right through thing for granted is a big leap in your assessment. Could be true but I don't think there's a true equivalence

    if you get in Edsons face he falls apart. Conor would clap that guy in 45 seconds

    Would be more impressive if Darren fucking Elkins didn't finish him even faster.

    Edson may have good TDD plus an insane kicking game but he can’t handle forward pressure like Conor can

    i'd say their TDD is pretty even, hard to tell at this point.


    edson absolutely does not have better range/distance control than conor, edson can't fight on the backfoot at all and his boxing is weak.


    conor's hands > edson's whole game.

    This isn't a race, watching Conor take a long drawn out beating while Dana, his fanboys and the UFC sh!t their pants is going to be epic..

    Edson in ineffective going backwards and in close range
    Conor is not

    Edson is one of the most over ranked fighters on the roster and has lost badly to every elite fighter he's faced.

    Edson is a fraction of the fighter Conor is.

    Edson has always been a bum. Overrated by Khabib fans.

    Edson TDD is twice as good as Conor. Only guys to really take Edson down over and over are Khabib and Lee, the best and second best wrestler at LW.

    Pretty sure Connie got double legged by Nate mother fucking Diaz in their second fight. First time I can ever recall nate scoring a TD that wasn't a trip or sweep from the clinch.

    Anyone who compares anything to Edson does to Conor needs to slap themselves. The two couldn’t be more different. It’s similar to comparing khabib to Mendes. Both are tremendous takedown artists, but khabib works by driving forward and getting trips, throws, or tosses, whereas Mendes shoots power doubles, singles. Edson keeps his opponents thinking about few, dangerous shots. He can be walked down at easy because his in fighting is horrid and he is only dangerous at kicking range and inside only has a flying knee.

    Conor, on the other hand, keeps fighters busy with snapping kicks which sets up devastating power straights and hooks. He can lead, counter, and loves when fighters try to pressure.

    Watching Kebab rush in with some sloppy and get slept with the quickness is going to be horrifying for Conor haters. What's the excuse this time?

    "Oh Kebab is just too one dimensional. Tony would destroy Connnner"

    False and Edson wilts under pressure. He had he balls and toughness to make it through the fight but not the ability to overcome adversity.

    Those are two different things, and Conor is better at both of them.

    You really think Dana gives a single shit about Conor or the UFC for that matter?

    The man already has over 400 million in the bank. I guess he still does this for fun and to get some extra pocket change before calling it quits but Conor losing is not causing Dana any missed sleep

    A very ineffective weapon against someone who is 100% exclusively attempting to take him down and so really doesn't matter
