Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by Colby, Mar 31, 2019.
I personally rank him number 4, behind Anderson Silva, Mirko Cro Cop, and Jon Jones.
Somewhere in the top twenty. Maybe top thirty, Id have to research.
When not worry about the TD, he's probably top 5 / top 10
Only thing that could hold him back is that his defense isn't fantastic. Jones rarely gets hit. Then again, Conor barely got hit against Eddie, Poirier, Siver, Holloway, or Brimage
Somewhere in the top 500. Probably 499th.
I have him at 21.
He is up there probably below Colby right ?
Conor respects the hands of Colby.
Later-career Rumble has to be up there in respect to pure efectiveness. Nobody really had meaningful success standing with him and usually got badly hurt.
King Colby doesn't belong on this list because his greatness cannot be compared to that of mere mortals.
That is true.
Rumble at Light Heavyweight was never outstruck. Hell, I can probably count on both hands the number of times he was hit cleanly during his second UFC run.
It's impossible to answer this question because MMA striking is all about stylistic matchup(example: cody, tj cruz) . there's no best striker in the mma or ufc, but conor is certainly right up there with other great strikers like wonderboy, max, whittaker,israel or Tj
Fedor destroyed Mirko in his prime in pure stand up
GOAT consensual BDSM striker...
He wasn't a very complete striker, just a left hand. Nothing else he threw was dangerous, so I'd say Top 50
Tough to say. At his peak he was a knockout machine.
The problem is that a lot of guys ran off 4-5 fights with dominant striking. Chuck Liddell, JDS, Overeem, Machida, Wonderboy, Pettis, Aldo, Holloway, Anthony Johnson, Garbrandt, Dillashaw, etc.
LOL conor haters like you are pathetic, and I don't even like conor
Overrated power in his left. Can’t kick for shit. Not a diverse striker.
Rumble had that death touch, shoutout to DC for being able to take that massive shot in their first fight.
