    We've heard about who's a bad match up for Conor (Nate), who's a "good" matchup?

    Strikers with a reach/height disadvantage.

    AKA Marcus Brimage, Diego Brandao and Denis Siver.

    Denis Siver. That's why he fought him to "earn" his title shot...

    At Featherweight? Swanson, Stephens both great match up for Conor. Over-aggressive strikers

    Whatever the opposite of a gazelle is, I guess.

    You really think so though?

    That would be interesting in my opinion, McGregor vs. Pettis.

    According to Sherdog, everyone is a bad match up for Conor, even those actors from WWE. He just got lucky the first seven times.

    Anyone because no one can take his left. Bring Miocic, Jones, Cain and Reem and maybe we will get some fights.

    Someone with less reach, cardio, and boxing than Nate. Once Conor proves that he has closed the gap in these areas, there will be no bad matchups left. An outside case could be made for Khabib. The rest of Conor's equals would be elite welterweights.

    He is pretty much the Ricky Haatton of MMA....dominates a division where he can utilise his bullying style and size advantage.

    Comes unstuck when moving up to higher weights. He gets beaten by all the best LWs and WWs.

    He cleared out FW though and that's his division....So my answer is....any FW.

    Siver went from 14th to 9th in the FW rankings after the Conor fight was announced

    Only if he gets lucky with a fluke 13 second KO because Aldo rushes at him.
