    Yes skinny as hell, but his reach was far longer than Aldo`s.

    Katie gets a lot of love from Conor and deservedly so; they are both Dubs and she's sticking up for him

    Katie is generally recognized as the best combat sports athlete Ireland has produced & is by far and away the most decorated

    McGregor does not get anywhere near the same love, too much bad press and shitty behavior but he's no Muhammed Ali figure and never will be

    Conor is far better than Taylor and has beaten far better opposition, Taylor has no power.

    No, in terms of achievements Taylor blows all other Irish athletes out of the water

    Connor hasn't done sh1t since he psyched out Eddie Alvarez about twenty years ago

    Taylor OTOH:

    20-0 pro
    15 straight defenses
    WBC WBA IBO IBF Undisputed lightweight champ
    6 consecutive years world champ
    6 time Euro championships winner
    5 time EU champ winner
    Olympic gold

    Oh, and she casually used play international football for Ireland too

    She may not be heavy handed, and I think Persoon beat her in the first fight, but she is a higher achievier than McG all day long. He says so himself

    Taylor has fought inferior opposition to Conor, where`s the Jose Aldo on her record?

    As unfit for the ring 1980 Ali was, the fact that he was able to go any distance at all with Larry Holmes and Trevor Berbick, who would beat McGregor by manslaughter, has got to mean something, plus the obvious size difference.

    No Ali did nothing in those fights he couldn`t even punch a speed bag in training for the Holmes fight and his speech was badly slowed, all he did v Holmes was lay on the ropes, anybody could have beaten him then.
