I really like the looks of him from that video. Completely dominated a solid journeyman there, which says to me that he is ready to step up to a bigger org. The UFC would likely gladly pick him up, seeing as they don't exactly have a wealth of Irish talent. Plus, all of his wins are finishes.

Really nice boxing for MMA.

He's got sweet timing and really sharp, crowd pleasing powerful technique. Get rid of the flashy kicks and look at his good moments, he looks incredible.. It sorta looks like his lead/ right leg is open, but look out for that cross.. Whoo! What a nice cross he has.

Seems really interesting, nice change of level. mix it up with the striking, seems to have decent ground game.

Great new addition to the LW but it's already ****in stacked.

Need a fight against Guida( I know he dropped to 145) to know how he can deal with TD !

Yeah that was my thought as well sure they look good and all that but they dont do shit and if someone better was in there he might have taken advantage of it

I say keep the fancy kicks. They add an element of unpredictability that helps open up the rest of his game.

Perhaps drop the Anderson Silva-esque kick behind your own leg thing. It's funny and demoralizing, but that's about it.

The UFC should get a hold of him and have him and Brad Pickett fight! Conor is a scary talent, I dont believe for one minute we have seen the best from him either.

Pickett is a BW, unfortunately. That would be a great fight, stylistically.

Max Holloway would be fun. Or maybe someone like Cole Miller.

Guida may be too stiff a test at this point. Unless he has great wrestling that I'm not aware of.
