    Rather than start threads like this how about naming ANY top 10 lightweight or welterweight that you think Conor would most likely beat. Personally I'm not confident that Conor can beat anyone in the top 10 at 155/170. He might have a few competitive fights if the styles match up but I wouldn't put money on him winning against any of those guys. He would certainly lose more than he would win imo.

    Even if they were the same size it would still be a comfortable win for Chimaev, he is a stylistic nightmare for McGregor, the grappling the stamina etc, nevermind the fact he is a much bigger guy, he destroys 2016 McGregor nevermind the current one

    If they were the same size he`d have to take Conor to the floor, his boxing skills are nowhere near Conor`s level despite knocking a fighter out with one shot, his defense is horrible.

    Amusing thread Mark. McGregor would be taken out in a stretcher again.
    As others have stated Chimaev is huge as a Welter so a complete mismatch. Chimaev is hungry and would batter Conor who has not looked good for some time and hasn't evolved since making it. O knoe Conor is looking at coming back at Welter but I can't seeing him having a chance against the top 5 in the division.
