Referring to the list, Conor McGregor wrote, “I outboxed 3 guys on this list! There’s no one even remotely close to my boxing in the ufc. Even Dustin only got shots off post the leg damage. Everyone has been pucked around by me if we are going off boxing. Yan is good tho, i like his style. I’d rip him up in that shell tho.”

McGregor has previously fought against Holloway, Aldo, and Diaz. He won the bouts against Holloway and Aldo. With Diaz, he lost their first match but won their second bout. Thus, McGregor’s claims might not be too far from the truth. However, he has lost twice against Dustin Poirier

McGregor plans to start fighting again soon, and his fans are excited to see him in action once again. It would be interesting to see what changes and novelty he brings to his game.
