    Yeah, pretty solid list. All the guys he’s lost to are pretty big deals too.

    None of those names are anywhere near as good as Conor is at MMA

    Didn't you get the Sherdog memo? He's a gatekeeper can now and has zero chance against McGoatsworth.

    EDIT: LOL see above ^^^^^

    Benson Henderson > Nate Diaz > Conor.

    By the power of MMAth, you're full of shit.

    Sucks to see my boys Yancy and Eddie on that list.

    But there's no denying Cowboy has a HoF resume, which begs the question why are people writing him off this fight like he's a bum.

    Edson got beat by Cowboy, Gaethje, and Tony but is still a good a name as any to have on your resume, but because Conor's fighting him, it's like he's some bum everyone has beaten.

    Your MMAth is terrible.

    Diaz = Conor (they are 1-1)

    If you had a PhD in MMAth from the MIT school of just bleed like I do, you would understand that a RNC win is greater than a majority decision.

    Unfortunately explaining this would require stochastic calculus techniques that are just too complicated for the average sherbro.

    I'll give you >= (greater than or equal to) by MMAth, but that's it.

    But Diaz has the advantage in case of a draw.

    Finishing your opponent> majority decision

    I think the universe has to explode, because:

    Benson > Diaz > Conor > Poirier > Pettis > Benson

    BOOM !

    Conor has made way more money than they all combined and been higher in the official UFC p2p list
