    Who improved the most since their fight, Max holloway or Conor? Do you think the rematch would be go the same way or be different? ( max's current concussion issue aside)

    Max.

    Connor had less to go to become world class.

    Holloway for sure, he was only 20 when they fought, a kid. He was getting beat by guys like Bermudez back then. He has improved a lot.

    We don't need to agree.

    Max easily.

    He faced much tougher competition on his way to the top that forced him to develop while Conor just kept up the same act all the way until he finally lost to Diaz.

    Conor couldn't even hurt Max in there last fight and this time he wouldn't be able to take him down either. Max would just use the gameplan he had for Aldo and probably get a very similar 3rd round finish.

    Holloway has CTE, had a stroke, and can’t make 145 or 155. I think Conor has improved the most

    Max by far. Conor looked just as good VS Max, Diego and Dustin as he has his lately.

    Different starting points. Can't make a fair comparison. Conor dominated Holloway everywhere the fight went. He was already elite back then. Max was not. But Max is now, so the growth favors Max since improving at an elite level is less noticeable. Max still chases Conor in skill.

    Conor may of had better wrestling than Max but I wouldn't say its elite now let alone then. Max was just that bad and we don't know for sure how injuries really effected either fighter.

    Max lost to Dennis Bermudez before fighting Conor. He isn't the same guy.

    Max but Conor has come far, would still beat him bad.

    I think you'll find I'm a realist. But I get words like that might be a bit too advanced for you.
