Conor McGregor is back at Twitter. Nothing new. He is probably going to fight in a few months time so it is not strange for some Twitter actions to hype us up.
The “Notorious” made a Twitter thread announcing that he is currently the number two pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC history, presuming that he might even be the number one.
GOAT THREAD.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 23, 2020
The array of finishes, across 2 divisions, with champion status in 1, Anderson Silva is No.1 MMA GOAT.
My array of finishes, across 3 divisions, with champion status in 2, I’m No.2. If not tied 1.
However still active, No.1 is fully secured by career end. And easily.
Clarity on Silva’s earlier no.1 spot. Most stylistic finishes on resume. Front kicks to face. Up elbow (albeit outside UFC) Thai plum knees leading to broken facial bones. Long list of jaw dropping finishes. Myself/Anderson have the most exciting/important finishes in the sport!— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 23, 2020
Conor stated that there is absolute zero possibility for him not to be the best MMA fighter in history when he finishes his career. He also proceede to give us his full list of pound-for-pound greats:
GSP is in at 3. Much less array of finishes but champion status in 2. He is far behind though. Reasons = Left 170 after much damage taken+questionable decision. Never re-engaged 170lb successors. Bottled Anderson fight. Only moved when one eyed fighter presented. Played safe.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 23, 2020
Jon is 4. Maybe tied 3. More array of finishes than 3 and still active, but champion status in just 1. Reasons = Multiple lacklustre decision performances + questionable decision win. Attempting to safe play HW entry/avoiding its champion.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 23, 2020
