    I thought Barbosa Vs Ferguson was the most skillful fight I've ever seen. Barbosa so skilled, awkward and unique flashy attacks. He did hurt Ferguson. Ferguson is the most skilled in the sport.

    He is right, Conor was gifted a fight against Alvarez. He didn't earn it.

    Barboza would kick Mcgregor´s ass easily , i wish they would give him a chance.

      I know what conors weakness is and its very obvious. Hes a fighter who likes to blitz in with rapid movement, timing and precision, and a deadly left hand to back it up. Boxers generate power with their rear leg by rotating the hips and putting their weight on the lead leg.
      Simply chopping his lead leg with a few clean hits throughout the fight will slowly but surely assure a win in Conors opponents favor. A bruised lead leg plus fatigue kicking in will spell out an L for Conor

      Conor Macrecor is a paper champion ! He lost twice against #5 Nate DIaz, than he beat Alvarez whos real record in the ufc 1-4. Macrecor shoudn't be at top 5 in LW division !

      In this world you have to be smart for everything even for fighting.
      Of course, his kicks would be a threat for Conor but he fights smart. He won't get close to being kicked significantly hard. He will just counter strike him and Lights out.
      E.G. If Werdum gets the belt again, he might as well go down as one of the best, if not the best, Heavy weight of all time. However what he has accomplished is based on fighting smart.
      He doesn't have the strongest punch or anything. He has great BJJ and fighting IQ.
      The time he approached a fight like a crazy person he lost by dead KO to Stipe.

      I don't think so... his chin has betrayed him at a few fights... Conor has a great amount of power

    We don't care about Barboza, bring on Khabib vs Tony!!! 🙌

    • GrowingDownUnder

      ferguson was only able to do that to barboza because ferguson has good striking and good wrestling...if ferguson couldn't strike he wouldn't of lasted half as long during that match and would of lost...to be fair ferguson would also destroy khabib & mcgregor...ferguson is the real uncrowned champ

    • GrowingDownUnder
      GrowingDownUnder 9 months ago

      barboza lost 4 times in ufc against johnson, cerrone, ferguson & jamie varner (aka who tf is that guy)....ferguson also lost against johnson but that doesn't matter cause we already know ferguson would beat barboza. It's also unlikely that a rematch with ferguson, cerrone or johnson would happen. That leaves just khabib/rda/diaz/alvarez/mcgregor I personally think barboza could beat all those guys and become champ
      And sure diaz & khabib easily beat johnson...however johnson doesn't leg kick and isn't as deadly as barboza when it comes to striking all barboza needs is 1 lucky shot and you're ko. With the exception of diaz you can't ko a diaz but barboza's leg kicks are diaz weakness!

    • GrowingDownUnder
      GrowingDownUnder 9 months ago

      ferguson got lucky against barboza, barboza was winning the striking in that fight and tony got lucky with a choke. Watch it again....how many times barboza lost? not that much and he's beaten good fighters like pettis & melendez. I look at styles and timing, currently cerrone isn't at 155 and rematch with ferguson is unlikely so the only threat barboza has at 155 right now is khabib & mcgregor but khabib sucks at striking and there's a very very high chance khabib will get knocked tf out against barboza!

      Yea, because wanting to hurt or kill yourself has to be directly linked with the brain trauma caused by that very kick. Good logic there kid.
