Swamp Donkey -
Gaethje is one my favorite fighters.
Him and Oliveira are two of the top 5 most exciting fighters in MMA.
I don't like him against Connor because he refuses to wrestle.
Conor hasn't fought a standup specialist his size who has power. Masvidal and Gaethje both would finish Conor via KO/TKO.
Cowboy fainted like a goat, that wasn't a fight. So Conor hasn't won a fight since 2016. Gaethje should be the favorite if they were to make that fight.
Lol what the fuck are you talking about?? I'm not a hard Core Conner nut hugger like some. But Conner has fought plenty of guys that are great with their stand up. Poirier, Eddie, hell even max. I know you said that weren't the same size, but all of those guys are close. Also, stop acting like your opinions are facts. Conner won his last fight, just cause your stupid ass doesn't think so, doesn't mean it isn't true.
I didn't say "great in the standup". Nate Diaz is also "great in the standup". I explicitly said a standup guy WITH "power". No one Conor has fought has that. I actually should have said "someone who frequently chooses to standup" instead of "standup specialist", because it won't even take a true standup specialist to beat McGregor on the feet. Just someone with decent standup (worse than Conor's), but with power and actual heart: Exhibit A: Gaethje or Woodley could march forward with far worse technique than guys like Poirier or Max and give Conor a bad night via his power alone.
Cowboy offered no offense or defense, therefore, by definition it wasn't a fight. That fight was tantamount to Conor lighting up a heavy bag. Hence, Conor hasn't won a fight since 2016.
