    From FW and LW the only dudes I can see pulling a win are Khabib, Tony and maybe Holloway too cause he improved allot since his first fight against Conor. Otherwise I anyone else would be an underdog IMO(Aldo might pull it off but slim chances I think).

    He's in big trouble against a lot of LW's can't see him going back down to FW.

    'Maybe Max?' I think Max would wreck Conor now, he's improved light years since they last fought.

    Very few fighters can beat the Conor that fought Eddie at UFC 205.

    But I'm not sure if he has the same drive anymore.

    At this point many can best Conor. His confidence has waned. He isn't the same

    He has one good win a LW.

    I would like to see him fight Edson.

    Now most of the top 10 in both weight classes. The blueprints exposed. Plus most of his casuals have disappeared. Its over.

    I'd ditch the fighting and write a best selling weight loss book.

    looking back eddie gets rocked in every single fight and conor is a ko specialist, its like a diaz bro losing to wrestler

    conor was showboating against floyd who pushed his shit in, your vision is clouded by his bullshit in the alvarez fight simply because he won, shrug off this cloak of ignorance and know how absurd it is to live in a midgets shadow

    At LW, I can only see Tony and Kevin Lee posing huge problems for him. And even then I'd probably favor Conor to win, especially against Ferguson.

    Face it - Unless GSP cuts to LW like he's been promising to, then Khabib is probably the only guy in the division who has McGregor's number.

    Conor has 1 move, his left. That said, good wrestlers leave him less openings, diminishing his chances to land a big one. In a standup fight he has more opportunities, so its "easier" for him to land one sooner or later.
