    I would just like to hear all of you guy's thoughts on who the most durable 155er is in the UFC and why you chose who you chose.

    Here's a look at the top 13 in the 155 division to give you a general idea of who we are considering here.

    The general consensus is that it is in fact Nathan Diaz who takes on Conor McGregor at UFC 202.

    Nate and Alvarez.

    Alvarez had some fucking wars over in Bellator. Tough son of a bitch.

    Alot of those guys can make a case. Eddie is durable and has been in some wars.
    Nate sometimes looka like punches and kicks don't phase him
    Rda took a beating from Eddie and didn't go down. Makes you wonder how hard does Jeremy Stephens hit if he was able to sleep rda.
    Tony took an ass whooping from Lando for a round. And got dropped by Michael Johnson a few times in their fight

    Still on the Banana War Boat of Doom for life though.

    Tony? Dude, you're crazy. I mean I guess in the long run he did show his durability by surviving but he got dropped 3 times in 1 round and it's just hard for me to see him as the most durable 155er after that.

    Lots of Diaz picks and I'm not going to disagree but what are you guys general thoughts on him getting stopped by Josh Thomson?

    He got caught and leaned into that kick, that wouldve KOed a horse lol. McGregor rocked him too a couple times but his chin is amazing.

    It took a lot of hard shots to finally put him away throughout the fight,and even then he wasn't fully KO'd.
    He's very durable going by his whole career.
