    Conor had more left than Whitaker did and Khabib is better in his respective sport than Tito was in his.

    I agree
    But what if khabib loses his focus and falls off? He still has work to do to be considered greater then Mcgregor.

    Conor beneffited greatly having a reach advantage at the lighter weights which is why he struggled with the bigger Nate, he even troubled Floyd some because he`s so good at exploiting his reach using his leasd hand and slippery head movement.

    If Nate fought Mcgregor at 155 that’s a 1 round fight. The only reason Nate won the first fight is because at that weigh Nate was more durable and McGregor underestimated his toughness, stamina, and durability and used the wrong strategy . As you saw in the rematch, even though he was outweighed 25 lbs, he fought the proper strategy and clearly won the fight.

    I agree with most of what you have been saying about Mcgregor and Khabib ,Mcgregor imo currently has a better resume having beating better opponents over a longer period but you saying Conor easily won the 2nd fight and would have easily beats Nate at 155 in 1 round is crazy talk ,Nate has a resume fighting most of the best at 155 and 170 and he never even came close to being blown out early against anybody.
    1 of many reason both Diaz brothers are so popular is that they are so tough having granite chins and are almost always still there at the final bell even when they are outclassed by bigger and or more skilled opponents.

    If you think Diaz would take the shots he took in either fight at 155 you just don’t understand fighting from a fighters aspect. 155 is connors ideal weight where Diaz Drains to get to 155.

    Look at how weak Diaz was vs Rda and he missed weight by 5 lbs

    Guess not.
    Mcgregor Diaz 2 was pretty easy to score if you were non bias going into the fight. Also, it’s a fact Diaz is more durable at 170 then he is a 155.

    This post says it all about your knowledge of the sport,for starters like many on this site you mistakenly like to call your opinions as facts, the actual fact of the matter is Nate at 170 had a 2-4 record only beating Conor and journeyman Marcus Davis

    Just about every stat about the fight including the scorecards showed that Conor vs Nate 2 was a very close fight

    And what does that have to do with being more durable at 170 then 155?

    The fight is scored round by round and not by total stats
    Mcgregor won 3 of 5 clear.
    Math isn’t my subject but I guess I’m also better at basic math then you.

    Maybe we should ask Rory Macdonald and josh Thompson what weight they think Nate is more durable at.

    Exactly he is not more durable at 170 he is just durable in general which gets back to my original point that you are way off on this and there is almost no chance he would got blown out in 1 round by Mcgregor or anybody for that matter.
