    I don't think "Muhammad Ali of" comparisons should be thrown around lightly. Connor himself would probably reject it (or maybe not I mean he's cocky).

    He is just a big **** talker, if he didn't talk so much **** nobody would care about his career

    Where's Ali wasn't only a great fighter, **** talker, but also a civil rights leader. What did McGregor ever done that compares with Ali's accomplishments?

    He could have been if he didn't decide to be a degenerate.

    Most UFC fighters are flash in the pants underpaid hypejob bums.

    McDonger had no gas and when he got tired he always looked like he wanted to quit and felt sorry for himself.

    Only truly great fighters can fight on empty and not have negative body language like that and go onto win.

    Khabib was a special fighter.

    He fell too much in love with his left hand. The problem being if he doesn't get you out of there in a round or two he's fubar.
    His gas tank is appalling.

    Conor respects Ali, he said that after he died.

    He wasn't tall at the weight but certainly a weight bully. If you see some of the weigh ins from that time he looked like he'd excaped out of a gulag.

    Yeah I know mate. I was early and got confused.
    I think he's been off the rails for a while coked up at some of the pressers the last couple of years.
    Not sure he can recover at this point as he's made a tonne of money and I think like Joshua to an extent is surrounded by yes men which isn't great for development.

    He's nothing like Ali, that's for sure. Ali fought and beat the best for around 2 decades and was truly at one point, the most famous man alive. Ali was truly larger than life.
    Conor... I used to like him. But he's become an arrogant wanker shooting too many roids and drinking too much of his shitty whiskey.
    He's basically done nothing for 4 years except lose and talk crap.
    I was so happy when Khabib beat his overrated arse.
