Why does everyone talk Conor-Khabib instead of Conor-Holloway

    Conor has only ever been super impressive at FW.

    He stopped a wrestler in Chad Mendes at FW and clowned on everyone else looking unstoppable.

    He is 1-1 at LW, and is no match for Khabibs wrestling.

    I don’t even think Conor is the biggest FW but his height and reach and power are an asset there.

    If he cares about greatness and legacy, he should go on a FW run and try to be the GOAT there.

    Nobody in the LW division, not even Khabib, can beat the Conor of today.

    I have a better chance of becoming the king of Saudi Arabia than Conor does at making 145 again

    Beating khabib Tony or cowboy means more legacy wise then beating Holloway a guy who a failed featherweight beat
    Financially nothing is there at featherweight

    Holloway needs to fight a wrestler to cement his legacy

    Edit why can’t 171lb when not dieting McGregor make 145? Yet 180 max can? 175 Ortega can? 170 Aldo can?

    He has given me no reason to believe he can’t make 145 if he really wanted to
    He made 145 twice without IV before someone brings that up

    Conor wont make 145 ever again, at 155? sounds good, but i feel like Max needs more time to actually move up a weight class and be competitive, not that he wasnt, but he cant be taking punches like that, from a guy that punches harder than him, and he is still holding the 145 belt, he needs to go back down beat a contender then evaluate a potential permanent move to 155lbs.

    Conor McGregor is a mediocre LW.

    He looks a bit dehydrated but not near death.

    Might I remind you that gleison Tibau makes 155 and the guy is almost 200 pounds? He’s a monster.

    Where does this narrative come from? Conor is a below average LW just like Max but is in a better shape and not as tall. He has never missed the weight.

    The fact that he looks like a skeleton weighing-in at 145. He legit looks like a different person

    I’m still waiting for a reason why a guy that has never missed weight or had an issue magically can’t make weight?

    Cuz he already beat him at FW? And Conor looks like a holocaust survivor at FW.

    Because all the Conor fanboys want to see him avenge his loss to Khabib and everyone in the real world knows that Khabib would smash him again

    Conor's fight against Alvarez at LW was arguably his most impressive performance.

    Dumb thread.
