    I personally rank him number 4, behind Anderson Silva, Mirko Cro Cop, and Jon Jones.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.
