Let's list some of the world class MMA fighters: (in no order)

1. Anderson Silva
2. George Saint Pierre
3. Cain Velasquez
4. Dan Severn
5. Randy Couture
6. Minotaro Noguiera
7. Fedor Emelianenko
8. BJ Penn
9. Dominick Cruz (why not!)
10. Wanderlei Silva the Axe Murderer

I could go on for at least 4-5 more guys.

Can you put Connor up against ANY of these guys? Pound for pound?


Connor is on par with dudes like Chuck Liddell or Tito Ortiz maybe.

Good maybe very good, but not great.

He is hardly a shoe in for UFC hall of fame. He's kinda like the Kazushi Sakuraba of the USA. Really good but full of flaws and far from perfect.

If Floyd lost to a dude of this caliber, that says alot more about him than anything else. Floyd is a legend. Connor isn't even close to that status in his own sport.

You misunderstood my post by comparing him to literal legends in MMA. I'm not saying he's HOF, but just by virtue of winning the UFC title would imply that he's world class level, no?

As fans it's really hard for us to grasp what world class level is at times, like where you might say Chuck Liddell is just "good or very good, not great", the reality is he is a world class level fighter who would've only had trouble with perhaps < 30 guys out there in the world during his prime. Certainly he would've crushed any of us amateurs.

Which is why I said, if he had chosen almost literally anyone else, like say the equivalent of Buster Douglas or another world class level boxer, then it might be interesting. But as you say, and I agree, Floyd is possibly the best boxer in history so it's like Lonzo Ball challenging Kobe to a 1 on 1 pickup game.
