    I remember Houston Alexander had a 5-win streak in the UFC for four dominant finishes, and a dominant decision where he claimed a 10-8 round and earned a title shot!


    Oh wait...

    Except that Conor has beaten more, better competition and doesn't have 4 straight losses in the UFC.

    The comeback KO win over Jardine was great though.

    I remember waiting for Houston to be exposed. I knew he was a one-dimensional fighter, and even that one dimension wasn't too strong. I knew thiago, Irvin, and specifically, red Schafer would all destroy him. I also knew kimbo was probably more well-rounded, too. having said that, he was still a very capable brawler. regardless of luck or favorable matchups, he had two big wins over jardine and sakara. keith jardine had just taken out forrest too, so it was a big fight for a debut.

    conor is CLEARLY legit. Poirier, siver, max, brandao, and brimage.....

    Houston's technique was swinging for the fences until either he or his opponent hit the canvas like a ragdoll, the guy had limited prospects from the get go.

    Conor has style.

    He didn't last as long as Conor has. Plus Conor has beaten top 10 fighters.

    Houston landed one punch on Jardine that had everyone freaking out. It wasn't a dominant streak against quality opponents...he had two quick wins in a row, but a comparison to McGregor is way off here.
