    Similarities
    -Both devastating knockout punchers
    -Both exciting to watch
    -Both highly controversial trash talkers and behave recklessly in an out the ring
    -Both made history (youngest HW champion, first to hold two UFC titles simultaneously)
    -Both insanely popular in their respective sports and sell millions of PPV
    -Both lost to their biggest rivals (Holyfield, Lewis/ Khabib, Nate)

    yeah interesting points. allow me to play devils advocate and state some differences

    Differences
    - Conor doesn't have a lisp
    -Conor isn't in to pigeons
    -Conor didn't go thru a Muslim stint in jail
    -Conor didn't have the terrifying mystique
    -Conor crossed over to another sport and faced the best

    After MMA will anyone give a flying **** about McGregor like people do Mike Tyson?
    Hell, Conor was out for the past year and no one even shouted the guy out at UFC. Dana White acted like he forgot who he was.

    Tyson was never really much of a trash talker. He was quite quiet during press conferences.

    Most of his rage was aimed at reporters.
    **** off turn off your station, I'll **** you til you love me. I only talk to women who I fornicate with etc.

    Conor is not Sonny Liston...
    Conor is not Jack Dempsey...
    Conor doesn't break his back...
    Conor doesn't want to eat Lewis children...
    Conor can't sell out Madison Square Garden masturbating...
    Conor doesn't talk to journalists unless they fornicate with him...
    Conor doesn't get to taste the cold tip of the barrel of Teddy Atlas pistol...
    Conor doesn't grab himself in a homoerotic manner & threaten to tuck journalists until they love him...

    Genuine vs Make belief

    The list is long, but others will add more
