    After seeing TJ post EPO, its clear he can still fight at a high level. Snake/cheat or not, respect to him for working his ass off and making a comeback, unlike other high profile fighters such as McGregor.

    Obviously he doesn't have the pace like he used to, but he can still hang in there, especially with a larger opponent.

    We all know Conor is a midget beater, but I am pretty sure Sandhagen is taller than McGregor.

    I think TJ would beat Conor pre and post leg break, thoughts?

    Conor would KO him inside first round.

    TJ got lit up by a rangy, accurate striker.

    Conor - although he has worse cardio amongst other things - is very rangy and accurate too, but has significantly more power than Sandhagen.

    He'd wreck TJ.

    Today probably.

    2016 probably not.

    relative to their weightclass, TJ is better.

    TJ is a much more complete fighter than Conor.

    They're 2 weightclasses apart so them fighting seems like a silly idea.

    TJ at 155 wouldn't be the same fighter, not as quick and his cardio will suffer. McGregor won't go back to 145. So weight class would this even happen at? Regardless, both are shells of their former selves, but McGregor prob tko's him.. Sandhagen was touching up TJ and dropped him.

    Its not a competition of who is more wellrounded. All it takes is one from Conor and its game over.

    If TJ was a LW with the skills he has, he'd tool Conor.

    He would be tooling Conors knuckle out of his orbital after waking up.

    He'd only have to fight... 2 weight classes above where he normally fights. Against someone who's known for having one of the most dangerous first rounds in the sport. (Although we all know none of that mattered recently) So the odds aren't in TJ's favor...
