    GSP murders Conor.

    McG got taken down and molested by Nate Focking Diaz.

    Georges would rag-doll homie clear to Bolivian.

    One has way superior wrestling, the other superior boxing.

    Im betting for the guy with far more experience and better conditioning.

    Conor ain't" stopping GSP's takedown. Pretty much a lucky punchers chance.

    Unlike Khabib, GSP has both very good striking and an incredible blast-double. Add his size advantage and GSP is a terrible matchup for Conor, assuming he is still near the top of his game.

    If they fought a thousand fights, Conor would ‘Serra’ GSP a few times, but GSP at his peak wins more than 9 out of 10 times.

    Gsp most likely. But in a year or 2 who knows. It would be a more fair fight down the line

    I'll take the guy that actually had an MMA fight within the last year.
    Hell I believe GSP beats his ass standing too. Don't even mention how bad a raping it would be if he takes it to the ground.

    GSP.

    I'm still looking for that guy who seriously believes Conor beats GSP and posts Conor's name.

    GSP owns lightweights. Sometimes he taps to strikes but then he'll beat him the 2nd time!

    The only true 50-50 super fight in MMA

    Gsp all day on the ground

    Conor all day on the feet

    A lot of people ride the "what have you done for me lately" banwagon and blindly pick fights based on hype/legacy

    When you made this same thread 3 years ago, asking about Conor vs Aldo, you got the same arrogant viltriolic responses about how Aldo would rape Conor, and how Conor would have nothing for Aldo

    People never learn their lesson. Keep doubting Conor : )

    Im going to get piled on for actually looking at the fight skill vs skill and breaking it down objectively

    To make it as short and concise as possible


    1. Orthodox vs southpaw means the leadhands are at a natural interference to each other, which makes establishing the jab more difficult for either. With the advantage going to the fighter who positions his leadhand higher to parry, and are come over the top with lead hooks and counter jabs etc

    And basically the advantage going to the fighter who establishes leadhand control and has a better leadhand game+fients+jabs etc

    But Gsp particularly had this glaring weakness vs southpaws

    This is why GSP struggled so much against Hendricks.

    Hendricks being a southpaw already put him at an advantage to shutdown Gsp's jabhand, and he did so with leadhand control.

    And GSP without the jab is a much much much much worse fighter

    Now look at what kind of fighter Conor is, who has far superior boxing, far superior leadhand game/control, and far superior countering etc

    Conor is primed to shut down Gsp's jabhand and render Gsp a much less effective fighter. This is like 2+2=4 stuff

    The writing is all over the wall that Conor with his skill and style was made to beat someone like Gsp standing...

    -shut down the jab hand, split entry counter lefts under his jabs, when locking down the jabhand forcing right hand responses to counter etc


    2. Gsp is also jumpy to being fainted to the body. Because he's weak to the body. Conor could also work GSP over with body shots, fient the body then go up top etc



    3. Gsp could make it more competitive with kicks, but I also see Conor checking kicks and countering each kick with a step in counter left


    On the feet it's Conor all day due to southpaw and superior boxing/striking


    Of course every one knows Conor would have to absolutely avoid the ground game at all costs

    People in this thread are also ignoring that the fight would likely be at 155

    And GSP could lose significant amount of strength at 155

    Conor would be a huge underdog due to ignorance. Lots of money to be made on Conor if a fight vs Gsp ever happens: )

    Might sub him but Probably a wrestle fuck decision
