    Back in the early days of Aldo's career, there were often comparisons drawn between him and Anderson. Now that a new striking phenom might be poised to inherit the throne from Aldo, who do you perceive as having better striking, McGregor or prime Silva?

    Anderson Steroidva is the most accomplished striker, that's for sure. His kicks seem way beyond Conor's, and his defense is pretty good (you can't separate strikes and defense).

    Andy dosent lead. Conor does. Andy moves like water though . Andy is the better counter striker. Mcgregor is the better aggressor. We still haven't seen conor against a legit striking threat Tho

    Anderson and its not even close. The other guy is very good and a elite striker but Anderson is one of a kind

    Aldo > Conor striking
    Although Conor might have better punching, his kicking game is far behind Aldo's.

    Prime Anderson > Aldo or Conor striking.

    I do feel Anderson kind of got exposed in his last fights against Weidman and Diaz, where they simply didn't fell into Anderson's traps. Conor however gets hit way too much lately.
