Nate vs gomie is definitely up there but rarely gets mentioned. 

By all accounts not a prime gomie but plenty of people have fought fighters past there prime and still not put on a clinic like that.

Nate vs grey Maynard is another pretty good performance.

Conor vs Aldo was pretty perfect, if short. 

 

A lot of GSP's fights. When he fought Koschek and when he fought Alves.

Edmen Shabazian(?) Vs Brad Tavarez was pretty perfect.

Edmen was patient and landed combo leading to a perfect one two. After he hurt Tavarez, he feinted a left hand to hide a left high kick.

Anderson vs Forrest 

This. 
 

You can close the thread, there’s no discussion possible here. 

Theres certainly a discussion. Forrest was not only a gift stylistic match up for Anderson, Forrest was KOd the week before the fight in sparring, and was drugged out on xanax during the fight. Anderson vs Forrest was as close to a fixed fight/fixed outcome, as there has ever been.

-Conor put on a far cleaner display of elite level boxing with his fienting, leadhand control, and footwork 

-Where as Anderson had a hand picked drugged out brawler running face first at him giving up the "counter" on silver platters.

-Conor beat a far more impressive, far more legitimate opponent in Alvarez.

Conor vs Alvarez blows Anderson vs Forrest out of the water. Conor vs Alvarez was actually a legitimate, nonfixed fight

Lmao. Conor winning a round automatically disqualifies the Khabib fight from this discussion "best pure performance". Sonnen's first fight over Anderson has 1000x more of a claim for "best pure most dominant performance." also, Conor was rusty and injuried, so the result has an asterisk. This discussion is only reserved for when a fighter was impressive against an elite PRIME opponent.

DC vs Hendo has to be up there. Was awkward to watch with the huge size difference

First one that came to mind was TJ vs. Barao.

Max vs. Ortega is up there too, I was more impressed by that than Conor vs. Eddie for some reason. No, I'm not taking anything from Conor I just feel Eddie was beat by Conor's aura before he even got in the ring, whereas Ortega was an undefeated, tested, #1 ranked opponent who was 100% on his game and just got demolished.
