    Who do you think wins and why (in a 5 rounder)?
    I think it's a 60/40 win for Conor.
    Tony ain't taking him down, and gets hit a lot.
    Not sure he has the chin to handle that type of power.
    But he might also survive the first rounds and beat a gassed Conor in the later rounds.
    How do you think this plays out?

    Tony gets dropped early again and Conor gasses again.

    Always thought Ferguson was one of the easier match ups for Conor within the top 5 LWs

    I think Conor and Poirier would have their way with him on the feet. Both have big power and great finishing instinct. If Tony beats Khabib (which I doubt) and Conor gets the TS vs Ferguson, I'd be extremely confident he regains the belt

    I think Tony is a bad matchup for Khabib
    that Khabib is the worst matchup for Conor
    And that Conor is a bad matchup for Tony

    Khabib's style is all about keeping you down and making you gas.
    Tony ain't gassing and has some slick Edgy Brah bjj off his back.
    Conor is praying for Tony to beat Khabib.

    Tony imanari rolls into single leg x. Pulls guard. Sweeps & mid sweep hits a darce.

    If this fight goes beyond 1 round it’s all Tony.

    McGregor has a bad gas tank, but has definetely more than 1 round.
    I'd say 2.5 rounds.

    Unless you can put Tony on his back and keep him there, while avoiding his submission game, you're in for a long violent night.
    Can Conor beat Tony? Maybe, but if he can't catch him early and put him away, Conor is fooked.
    Great match up either way.

    I think Conor punches his head off within 2 rounds

    Agree. Tony is an easy matchup for Conor.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. I want to see if Ferguson shows up for the Khabib fight first before speculating about any other fights for him.

    Tony takes some big shots early before wearing Conor down and slicing his face open with elbows and straight rights. A gassed and bloody Conor looks for a way out and leaves himself open for a signature T-Ferg D’arce choke.

    I think Tony is a fairly easy matchup for Khabib. I get that he has the best cardio in the UFC but if you're getting smashed Khabib style for 2 or 3 rounds you're not going to be the same physically, mentally and cardio wise too. Tony isn't a takedown defense expert so he's fucked. No one's beating Khabib off their back.

    I really wonder what else Ferguson need to do to be appreciated on this forum, dudes literally on 12 fight win streak, fighting and brutally finishing top LW in process, but somehow Conor is bad much up because Tony had like 2 knockdowns in some fights? :D Gregor have 1 win at LW , 1 win, and all of sudden he is going to Ko Tony, you guys pretend like Diazs fights never happened, Tony's recovery is next level and there is no way in hell Gregor follows him to the mat, open your eyes ppl
