Although it comes from Ali saying they got offered the fight with Conor. I would actually like to see this fight.

Justin gets hit a lot and Conor has power. I'd favor Justin but you never know in MMA.

I think Justin would get put down by Conor. His boxing striking is to clean and precise. Justin would be stubborn and want to prove he can hang on the feet and Conor would chew him up imho. It's amazing how much people forget how good Conor is. Just because he lost to undefeated Khabib.

Sadly this. A hungry Conor, who was fighting for fame and money was a dangerous fighter. Now he just cares about collecting paychecks and different promotions.  As a fighter he has lost his motivation after he collected the millions from the Mayweather fight

I love Conor and do not underestimate him, but can he really handle Gaethje's leg kicks? I mean Gaethje was ballsy to kick Barbosa who imo is the king of leg kicks

good question. Both Conor's leg kicks and leg kick defense are weak.

Conor likely beats Gaethje.  This would be unfortunate as it would derail Gaethje v Khabib.

Conor should focus on 145 for now.

Tell that to Eddie Álvarez and Nate Diaz.  He dropped them both like 3-4 times.  Nate is tough as shit but conor has great power.  If porier and Eddie knocked him out, why can’t conor?  He’s already proven to be a better striker with just as much if not power at 155.  Justin will try to wear conor down with pressure while eating left hands.  If his chin can hold up for a couple rounds, Conor will gas and Justin can break him.  However, Conor is very dangerous in those 2 rounds.

Conor has never been beaten up with leg kicks. Also, Conor has great footwork and can Time his punches right when Justin throws a leg kick.

Wait, Conor beat the two guys that beat Justin.... Not only did he beat them but he literally destroyed them. He must have more power than Justin, because he couldn't put them out and Conor did with ease.

If he'd just spend like 6 months working leg kick defense he'd be a beast.

I would love to see it though.

If Conor trains properly it probably looks a lot like Conor vs Eddie. Styles make fights. Gaethje is a much tougher fight for Khabib than Conor will ever be, but I think Conor finishes Justin easily and early.

Conors only weakness is good wrestlers. He has proven time after time that he will destroy one dimensional strikers. As much as I love Gaethje, I think Conor will beat him easily. His punches are so precise and powerful. I would love to see it though.
