    When Conor doesn't even have a basic jab in his boxing arsenal?

    Points where Masvidal is better in regards of boxing.
    Masvidal has a much better jab.
    Masvidal has much better defence.
    Masvidal has better head movement.
    Masvidal has better footwork.
    Masvidal doesn't need a big reach advantage to 'outbox' his opponent like Conor does.
    Masvidal is quicker in his combinations.

    The only thing you could say that Conor is better in is countering with his rear hand, which he's elite at.

    Gamebred has much slicker boxing than McG,

    Conor reminds me of them guys that take a couple of boxing lessons and then broadcasts it to everyone like they're a pro
    They usually go to the local sport shop and by all the gear which isn't a bad thing but you know they'll stop coming after they've actually got in the ring and sparred a couple of times

    If Masvidal is such a great boxer and Conor is so one-dimensional, how has Masvidal's career been so mediocre as of yet?

    Conor control's the distance better.

    Conor counters better.

    Conor rolls with the punches better.

    Conor hits harder.

    Conor is more precise.

    Conor has better reflexes.

    Masivdal is a great boxer, no doubt, but he's not as dangerous as Conor on the feet.

    I'm a huge Conor fan but he is not even a top 10 boxer in the UFC. I put him at #12 just behind Artem.

    you just don't understand shit lol, conor counter skills are inhuman, absolutely out of this world, so scary that after the first counter comes his opponents freeze and are afraid to punch

    if conor and masvidal were to fight masvidals wrestling would Be the thing that wins him the fight, not boxing. Just because Conor has stamina issues doesn't mean masvidal is a better boxer. His boxing is probably in Gilbert Melendez level

    Agreed Masvidal would finish Conor if they were to fight he is much more dangerous on the feet.

    Because it's hard to see when Conor's balls are resting on their collective foreheads

    Cuz we don't understand boxing that well, but what we do understand is Condor is the goat and the goat would cream Masvidal.
