Agree to disagree doe.

Diaz didn't beat him by being a more well-rounded fighter, he beat him by being a natural Welterweight (who wouldn't settle into a slugfest
Nate won cuz he's tough & has a ground game. And he lost in the 2nd fight cuz he didn't try to get the fight to the ground enough. Respect to Conor on his sprawl game btw. He knows his a turtle on his back on the ground so his sprawl game might be the best in the game.

Cowboy isn't as tough but he has a good ground game, when he chooses to use it but he romanticizes toe to toe standup fights a lil too much & that's gonna be his downfall more than likely cuz Conor can throw. Randomly I have zero doubt Team Conor did there homework & Cowboy's weak spot is his body so I won't be surprised if Conor doubles down on throwing to the body vs this tall drink of water.

However tomorrow plays out, it doesn't change the fact that you've never seen a fighter as good as McGregor, when he was at his best.
YOU haven't seen a better fighter as Conor. I've seen plenty. Conor clearly doesn't suck & just off of a great standup game he's accomplished so much but that doesn't change the fact he's got giant holes in his MMA game that would keep him outta the Who's #1 Of All Time by most rational knowledgeable MMA guys who can talk intelligently & not fanboy on a guy too much.

I can't name a guy who is good at wrestling but is physically weak. It just doesn't go together.

But I retain, Khabib is just a smaller matt hughes/ bigger sean sherk.

He's honestly not that good. In my eyes, he's just not. He's very strong, he's a very good wrestler but he's like Rich Franklin era of mma.

It's the reason why I think Ferguson beats him and I can't stand Ferguson. I am not a fan of his at all but he's tough, has cardio, is very aggressive, has ko power, can scramble, and can submit you.

He should beat Khabib truth be told. Barring some freak BS like Condit blowing out his knee or Anderson breaking his leg on a kick. Both in the middle of a match and knowing Ferguson, he'd fight the whole time at a complete disadvantage.
If you beat someone, like Khabib did Conor, that's exhibit A in saying someone is the better Mixed Martial Artist. Don't really know the need to do a attribute by attribute breakdown of them at that point. What happened in the cage decided the outcome already.

Idk about SHOULD beat him but Tony is a wildcard ass mfer so yea it wouldn't shock me if he beat Khabib either. Tony wouldn't surprise me if he beat Conor either although I think I'd like Conor's chances more vs Tony than Khabib in a rematch. Hopefully we'll finally get to see Khabib vs Tony make it to the cage & the winner fights Conor to iron this all out beyond debating on it.
